    yes I know! How did you do on the TEAS? I was so nervous this was the first time I ever heard of that test, big curveball there lol

    I got not very high score on the teas only 65% .. .. My GPA is 3.75.. So im very nervous.. Are u applying as a transfer student?

    Yes I applied as a transfer, I've been taking pre-reqs at a community college, my gpa is 3.61 and I got an 86% on the teas. I went to an info session a few months ago and they said last fall over 1000 students applied and they only accepted a little over 100 into the Nursing program. Nerve wrecking!

    Thats very good score you got!! I think you definitely get in !! I didnt apply to any other school, how about you? And what community college were u at?

    Thanks! I studied daily for a month before the test. I applied to Northeastern (doubt I'll get in, but worth a try), and Simmons. Simmons is my dream choice, but Umass is definitely more affordable for me. I've been taking classes at bhcc, how about you?

    Oh me too.. Lol.. Im sure you get in to umass.. Do other school require Teas test too? I studied a lot for the teas as well but English is not my first language so i had hard time for the test..
    Just relax.. You get very high score, they will accept you no condition !! Do u know any other students who took the teas?

    The only students I know that have taken the Teas were for the Nursing program at bhcc, I don't remember their scores. I had a friend who applied to Umass Boston 3 times, finally got in the 3rd time and her gpa was 3.8, she didn't need the teas. It's just that so many students apply and they don't have enough space, so I'm a little worried.

    Simmons College required the TEAS also, but not Northeastern.
