    Oh, nice to see all the activity on this thread. I'm applying to Bunker Hill and Quincy for a Jan 2013 start. I am taking A&P and Chemistry right now, busy busy! And I will try to knock out a couple more courses in the fall. I think Bunker Hill is my 1st choice because it's closer to me and also although I could do either, I'd prefer to do a daytime program. The only drawback with Bunker Hill is that darned TEAS - ugh - not looking forward to that! Has anyone here taken it yet and how did you do?

    Good luck with Bunker Hill. Quincy is my first choice because of the part-time program and proximity to my house. I have only taken the Reading portion of TEAS once for massasoit and got an 85.7% adjusted score. I don't think TEAS is that bad depending on your strengths. It is time consuming because there are 4 subjects to study for, and it's annoying if you're already busy with work or classes.

    Have you taken the accuplacer yet and how did you do? I submitted my application last week so I'm just waiting and really hoping to get in.

    Ok my app is in!! I got a 120 on reading, 120 on sentences, and 113 on math. Bunker Hill is actually my 1st choice but their deadline isn't until Aug 31 so I am not sure how the timing will all work out. Either way though, I am excited and hopeful about moving forward with my goal!

    @umbdude:I did end up taking it again, so I applied with a 112 in reading, 117 in sentence, & 113 in math. I got a letter today acknowledging that I had applied, which kind of freaked me out at first haha. We'll see! Good luck to you!!!

    I start my prereq's this fall. I'm taking A&P 1 and Chem. How are those classes at Quincy? I'm so nervous to start, I'm aiming for the Fall 2013 class.

    Did you buy the review material from the TEAS website? I was looking at it and it looks like it'll be a lot of help. How long did the actual test take?

    I took Chem in the Spring semester and am taking the 5-week A&P 1. I have good instructors for both classes, and they do enough for you to get a good grade if you work hard. The difficulty is in line with typical college science courses. Overall, they're really good classes.

    I used the McGraw Hill prep book, but it's not that good. You should definitely use the official prep materials from the TEAS website since official guides are almost always the best.
