so i'm working towards applying for nursing school
for spr 2012... That'll give me some time to raise my c-gpa a little bit and to retake my nln. in fact i just took my nln for the second time and got a 125 composite. however i was not able to apply for fall 2011 bc my verbal section i got a 49%tile and i needed the 50%tile on all 3 sections... verbal section is my weak point. i had a 94%tile and 85%tile math and science. it kills me because i studied so hard for verbal and yet i scored so horribly. I'm planning to take it again the third time around hoping i score better than 50%tile for the verbal section. i guess i can use my excuse-english is my second language. is there anything i can do to raise my verbal score??? I used so many books to study for the nln yet still poor score
should i find a tutor? or should i study vocab books and such? another thing is that my c/gpa is at 2.89 right now. i'm taking two classes at UH right now hoping to get all A's and a anthro class in the summer to bring it up to 3.0. i really don't want to give up nursing school... it's something my heart is set on for a while... i believe my pre-req gpa should be around 3.6 after anthro in the summer. what are my chances of getting into nursing school for spr 2012 if my c-gpa is 3.0 and pre-req is 3.6ish and if i improve on my verbal section for nln the third time around?
