    funnywintergal, don't take it again! Your score is fine. A friend of mine got in with a 75% on the HESI. Don't waste your money taking it again. The A&P section isn't weighed very heavily, they just want to see how you do, knowing you haven't taken the class already. Don't stress, you should be fine!

    I'm turning in my application to the SP 2013 Traditional BSN Program before the end of the week. I'm just putting the finishing touches on my goal statement paper and double-checking EVERYTHING. I went to an info session last week (this is the second one I've attended). I'm frustrated that they don't have the interview dates available (I'm traveling for some weddings this fall and would really like to know whether or not I can attend) and I'm REALLY frustrated that they said we would at least know by Thanksgiving whether or not we got in. Does that seem ridiculous to anyone else? Sorry in advance for my vent....

    Hey, do you know if our HESI scores were sent automatically to the school after taking the exam? I used the code provided by LSU (in Baton Rouge) to sign up for the exam...I was just wondering. I'm freaking on if they have my HESI scores or not.

    The people at the testing station said it would be sent to LSU at midnight on the day that I took it. But somewhere on this forum someone said it takes like 20 days or something? But I've taken it twice using the LSU code and I asked both times, and they both said at midnight, but they should've also given you a copy with an official seal, so you could always just send that in if to verify.

    No, I have not submitted my application yet. I am still working on my essay which is stressing me out! I was reading last year's posts from students who were applying for spring of 2012 and they conducted two interview days, I think separated alphabetically by last name. They had one set in september and another set in mid october and they notified by the end of october/early november. I'm concerned because my friend's wedding that I'm a bridesmaid in is late september and I have a flight for it already. Also I have plans in October set up as well. I also read that they weren't too flexible with dates either you make the interview time or you don't and if you don't it's very likely you won't get accepted since the interview is based on a percentage on who gets accepted. Thankfully my friend's wedding is on a Friday so if I have to I'll just have to change my flight to fly out that night and as far as October commitments I would just cancel and lose $100. When do you plan on bringing in your application? I plan on by Monday, but I'm just so nervous that my statement essay will never be good enough.

    I was freaking out about this too! I printed out a copy of my HESI results and brought it to an information session at the campus about two weeks ago. I showed them the code on the printout and they said it was correct. However, they said there was no way to call in and confirm that the HESI score is visible from their end. I'm glad I wasn't the only one worried about this!! I think it should be ok though. You can always call Evolve and make sure.

    Oh my god, KristenNola I am in the same boat right now! I have a wedding in Mexico the first weekend in October. I have two other weddings in September and I have not booked flights for these because I'm fairly certain I won't be able to attend one of them due to this interview. I REALLY wish they could have set aside at least two solid weekend dates instead. I know it's not as easy at it seems...but I'm nervous enough about this whole thing as it is! I have not submitted my application yet either and I feel the same way about my statement. It's awkward to write about yourself and something you've worked so hard for. It's a delicate balance between heartfelt, relaxed, approachable and professional. I'm sure your statement is GREAT!!!

    What I'm really worried about is if that transcript request sheet is attached to one of my transcript letters. What sucks is that we're not allowed to open the envelope to check. :-(

    However, the school did say they put it in there...I'm still worried though.
