    For those who took the Accuplacer. Do you find the "sample questions" given on collegeboard's website pretty close to what appear on the real test (especially for reading)? Or are those samples questions easier? The sample test has only short passages, are there any long passages (multiple paragraphs) in the real test?
    Thanks

    umb-I think it's close to it. On the screen when taking the test, there isn't much room for very long passages. But becareful, the reading is tricky, I walked away thinking I got everything right, which I didn't.

    Hi guys! I'm applying to the fall program as soon as my transcripts are ready from other schools. I took the Accuplacer on the 27th for the first time. For studying I used the CollegeBoard Accuplacer app for iphone. It was $2 but I think it was worth it. They have way more questions than the sample pdf file on the CollegeBoard website and the questions were harder than the actual test. It also automatically grades you and tells what why the answers are right.

    The adviser I spoke to (just last week, I'm applying pretty last minute) said the program is pretty competitive, but that's all he said, nothing about a shortage of applicants. What was the original deadline for applications, if anyone knows?

    Hope I get in... My other choices are Brockton and Curry but they're both mad expensive!

    Good Luck, emm90!

    I would love to use the official prep, but I don't have an iphone. I wish they would have the same app for Android. I bought one prep app on Android, but it wasn't very good and cost $10.

    Has anyone that got in already, heard anything from anyone? I just wondering when orientation is and such. Also anyone taking any summer classes? I'm taking Microbiology and A&P 2 in the first 5 week summer session.

    I am handing in my application next week....I am super nervous at this point! The fact that Orientation is June13th make me hopeful that they will make a quick decision regarding all the applications they are getting. I am still debating taking the accuplacer again, to see if I can get my scores higher.
    Hopefully I will get accepted and I will be able to join you at the orientation!! XXfingerscrossedXX

    I should also say that it makes me anxious to see "lots of stuff to be done before orientation". Please feel free to elaborate on that comment! lol

    Hi Cally just to let you all know. I have rescinded my enrollment in the Quincy college nursing program. I will bd attending Massasoit in fall, and u let them know at Quincy college right away to "free up" a space. I know others ate trying to get into Quincy I just favored Massasoit for my budget and the "children's center" there for my boys. I'm do very happy I got in!

    Things they want for orientation - physical with blood test and immunization records. CPR Certification(I dont know if they need that before orientation or just before class starts. I'm going to call this week and find out) I guess its really not too much to do. But it sounds scary when they say if you dont have things done, you'll lose your seat.
