    What did you get?

    I took it back in November and scored an 88.7. Hopefully that is good enough. From what I have read, they look at the whole person concept. The hardest part for me was the personal essay. I wasn't sure how long it should have been.

    Now, it is time to wait for the result. Do you guys have any idea that when we can get the result? or at least rejection call or letter?

    Hey ambz13,

    I also have a C in a science course (microbiology from a long time ago... it was an unfair grade, and I contested it, but for legal reasons the college couldn't take it off my transcript). I retook the class and got an A, and I scored in the 99th percentile on the TEAS. Where did you read that the C in science is a deal breaker?

    The admissions committee will use the A in Micro as an indication of your ability. A C in one of the required sciences (Micro, Chem, A & P I & II) is not impressive but it depends on your competition and everything else in your application. Have there been semesters where no one with a C in those courses were admitted? Yes. But not every one in the past.

    Hi, Grey Lady! When do you think they will start sending out letters?

    Hey Grey Lady,

    Thanks for the response! I'm glad that UMSON will smile at the more recent A in the same class. I will admit that the older C has caused me no small anxiety.

    That depends on many variables - how many applicants, how late paperwork is received, how much is missing, snowmaggedens, the percentage of highly qualified applicants, how difficult it is to convene the admissions committee, employees out sick, etc. You are looking at 8 to 10 weeks so sometime in April. Your status will change from Requirements Outstanding to Complete and Ready for Review, to Committee Ready (you would stay at this status for a long time) to either Admit Institution (you are in!) or Provisional Admit (you are in IF you get Bs or better in all outstanding courses).

    I know it's really hard, but try to be patient and don't bother to check your status this month. It will just drive you crazy.

    Hi everyone,

    I am wondering about the merit scholarships. Grey Lady, or any current or past students, do you happen to know about the criteria for receiving one or how many are given out? Are these full scholarships or partial?

    Many thanks!

    Thanks for clarifying Grey Lady!

    So I might have a small chance -but I'm okay with that. Some chance is better than no chance!

    Not getting in doesn't mean not becoming a nurse, however, I would be completely ecstatic if I could make it in.

    ersoch- You will probably be in great shape since you have retaken it and received and A! I still need to retake mine in the summer. It's funny because I felt like A&P I was easier and pretty straightforward, while A&P II was much more difficult and had more complicated physiology.


    Grey Lady- Do you know if TEAS scores factor in with the science GPA? For example: If a student has a 4.0 science GPA and a science TEAS of 52, is that seen as a red flag? Same with the other way around; a student has a 3.0 science GPA and a score in the 90's on TEAS science section. I'm curious because I'd really like to tweak my application if I do not make it in for Fall 2013.
