    Ahh that would have me so nervous! I went and turned mine in in person on Wed the 11th...I didn't wanna risk it not getting there in time!! My HESI was an goal was a 75 because that's the lowest acceptance score I've heard of so much better than expected!! Hopefully they didn't lie about still taking your application, I've heard they're very unorganized and that would be frustrating

    Yea..I took A&P but only took the first test before I dropped (I got a 98 on that test though.) So I did well on that section but I don't think they really expect anyone to score well on that section because it's not a required course until we are accepted! I know it's weighted much more lightly. My friend got in with a 75 and she just started this spring. How's your gpa if you don't mind me asking?

    my gpa is a 3.0 i retook some courses after my freshmen year at lsu. so i now only have a C in biol and micro. but i do have a W in biol bc i couldnt handle micro and biol at the same time. (nursing advisor told me it would be easier to take both, but for me it wasnt)

    I have a friend who is a guy that is at lsu nursing now and he went from lsu to brcc and his grades werent so pretty. But it was good enough to meet the requirements...

    Wow, the things mentioned about the HESI make me feel so much better. I thought that having a 77 would drop my chances of getting in dramatically. But, the fact that they accepted people with lower scores then what I've made gives me hope! I read somewhere that the HESI is counted last. First is the GPA then the interview, then the goal paper. So even if you do good in all other areas the interview is still really important, uggh I'm so stressed. Coming on this website is helping a bit though

    Mg, still no call for me either. I wonder what order they are going in... Maybe alphebetical? My last name starts with "S" how about everybody else??
  13. by   Mimin_5o4
    no they still havent called.... If they dont call by the end of the week I didnt get an interview... I'm going to go see the nursing advisor tomorrow at lsu in br to see if something was wrong with my app like my gpa or my hesi... but i honestly think it was bc my app didnt make it to the office of student affairs on time... =[

    my friend says there is no particular order that they call.....
