Discouraged

  1. 0
    So I retook my HESI this morning. It was horrible. I went up 14 percent on my vocab(1:74, 2:88). Yay for that part!
    However. I went down 10 percent in reading(1:94, 2:84), and 2 percent in math(1:96, 2:94).

    I don't know how I pulled off to do so much worse. I was so confident. The reading is what really got me. My first average was 88, my second average...88. So I'm pretty discouraged right now.

    There were 300 testers for 36 spots. Needless to say - preeeetty discouraged, and not sure if I want to spend more money(background check, and drug test) for a program I might not get into.

    Carrington college. I've decided if I don't get in there, which I probably won't, ill go to a local community college. It'll take me two years longer but oh well.

    I know a girl who got in with an 80, but I think it just depends on the number of applicants and and average scores. Good luck! An 88 sounds good to me!

    Just wanted to say that I got a call back from the school today! I didn't score that badly, and if I complete all the other required information(background check, HS diploma, drug test, and letter of intent) it could help my chances! As well as I'll be in the running for the next two semesters, and when/if I retake the test next Fall - I won't back to pay for the background check or drug test!
