- 1Apr 7, '12 by AuntieBrookeHi fellow classmates!! I am so excited that I found this forum, and will have the oppurtunity to exchange conversation with some of you before starting in Sept. I am just so estatic that I got accepted!!!
I say this because I don't do well on those computer placement tests, I am a hardworking, over acheiver and do so well in school, but once it comes to timed tests like the placement tests, I crumble. And, with that being said, I did exactly that. My first time taking the accuplacer in Feb. I got a 86 in Reading Comprehension, 105 in Sentence Skills and 85 in Arithmetic. I was told that I had to take it again to even be able to fill out the application, until then you could not even submit it even if you wanted to.
So, after waiting their 30 day period between exams, I went back on March 9th and this time I did the Reading Comprehension again, I wanted to do the whole test again and try and up the scores of every category, but working two jobs and going to school fulltime at Cape Cod Community College already, I only had time to do the category that was keeping me from meeting their requirements. Luckily, I took it and I scored exactly the 96 that I needed to apply.
I took the application home, debated on just applying to the Part time program and waiting and then I just said heck, I'll send it in and whatever happens, happens. I called Quincy to see if they got it, and the advisor there said that she had received it and that she would make sure all components were there and okay it before it goes through the review process. She went through it and said exactly this, "I see you have everything there, and you have all the courses completed and everything we require on paper, but I am a bit concerned about the Reading Comprehension score." At that point I just said, I have the score that the admissions requirements state, I have ALL the pre reqs done and then some and I am a great student, so I will just give it a shot and if I don't get in I'll go for the Part time.
The lady turned out to be very nice, and because of her uncertainty, I didn't think I got in and planned on sending another application, taking the accuplacer again and paying another 50.00 for the Part time program.
However, to my surprise, I received a letter of acceptance! It makes sense though because I was told by a friend that they extended their deadline for Fulltime to May 15th because they didn't get the amount of applicants that they expected to!!!
Where is everyone from!? I am coming from the Cape, my older brother was accepted as well, so interestingly he and I will be classmates! Did everyone pay their seat deposit/Matriculation fee? Did anyone get the next packet with the immunization information and orientation info???
I am excited and nervous all in one!!!
Hope to hear from you all!
- 0Do I absolutely need to have chemistry completed before I apply at Quincy? I have all the prereqs done from Massasoit where they didnt require a chemistry, would Quincy accept those? There was some chemistry in the Massasoit Biological Principles class. I only applied to Massasoit, but now I am considering applying to Quincy after reading here that the deadline is extended, but I don't have a chemistry done. Would they take me? I could take a chem over the summer.
- 0Apr 10, '12 by rj2011Glad to see this post! I think I might go and apply as they extended the deadline! I have all prereqs done as well. HOWEVER I took the placement test and did great in reading but math I was some odd points off :-( so I have to go in and retake it. I am horrible with timed math tests. I get sweaty, nervous laughter etc.
So the days you spend in class/clinical is 3x a week? is that right?
They will not let you apply if you have not completed the pre-req's. I am taking my last 2 pre-req's right now and when I went into the advising office to get the Nursing application, they checked to see if my pre-req's would be completed prior to the deadline. I was then told that I can't hand in my application until after my last day of classes.
I am not good with math tests of any kind! I took the test and did well and I can still take it 1 more time before the new deadline.
I suggest that you just review Math as much as you can before you take the test again. I searched the internet and found a bunch of math review info that was really helpful for me. Remember it is only 20 math questions and you have about 2 hours to complete the entire test.
I am currently debating whether or not I should schedule another test to see if I can do better than I did my first time.
- 0Quote from cally527Thank you for sharing - it's great to have answers! I could take a chem and an algebra then apply to Quincy. Do they have a spring semester start as well as a fall start?CMA_TO_LPNThey will not let you apply if you have not completed the pre-req's. I am taking my last 2 pre-req's right now and when I went into the advising office to get the Nursing application, they checked to see if my pre-req's would be completed prior to the deadline. I was then told that I can't hand in my application until after my last day of classes.Sorry
- 0Quote from cally527Those scores sound very good- is there a recommended score they like to see?phina70I am trying to decide if I should take the test again. I took it once and got 110 Reading 112 Sentence skills and 106 math. I am thinking I should be good with those scores, but I am really nervous at the same time
- 1Apr 10, '12 by phina70cally527, I think your scores are great. I don't think you need to take them again.
CMA- call and ask to speak with **** (in admissions) - admission counselor for nursing. She's great and very helpful, and she had her name and signature on the acceptance letters. I think the parttime program starts in the spring but I am not sure. She told me their parttime program is 2.5 yrs and is even more competative to get in. I wonder where everyone else lives. I just happen to live in Quincy, don't know if that will make it more convenient as to where I am placed for clinicals. If you are going to take chemistry this summer, I took it in Summer 1 at Massasoit last summer, and was very nervous about taking it since I never had it in High School. Professor **** at massasoit was incredible, I highly recommend him.Last edit by Silverdragon102 on Apr 18, '12 : Reason: Names removed as per Terms of Service
