    Hi cjdiaz,
    I didn't interview, but mainly because I really didn't have any questions. I found the info session to be incredible thorough and I had researched the program for a few years.
    I didn't take TEAS, but my gpa for both is around 3.2 ish. I'm hoping my volunteer experience will help since my grades haven't been straight A's. I've been volunteering for a few years at mgh and have been in a critical floor assisting families at bedside under direction of the nurse director. I also sent more recommendations than the required two. They have a tough job choosing people, I think credentials aside there's a bit of luck involved. Ill just keep applying if I'm not in this year

    I interviewed over the summer. It was more so you could ask them questions and they could get to know you better. I didn't take the TEAS, but they took my SAT scores because they don't expire. She said they look for over 500 for math and I have a 530 so I didn't needed to take the TEAS. My gpa from the first time I went to college 10 years ago was terrible like a 1.97. I just graduated from Quincy College with my AS in Natural Science with a 3.97 cumulative and 4.0 prereq gpa. They told me they weigh more recent course work more than older and your personal statement is really important if you had not so great grades in the past.

    I took the Teas because my SAT scores were too old, my overall was 86.7%, math 96.7% and science 77.1%, not so good in science... My GPA is 3.61and I also interviewed. The interview was very laid back. Good luck everyone!! These nerves are killing me
