    Thanks. I've emailed our 'remediation specialist' and my RN teacher to see what they can suggest. I've worked harder than ever to get to this point, and I'm sadly finding myself giving up quick. I've always been an A-B student in college and I have several degrees, so it's not like I'm new to the whole studying deal. Just makes me upset to think how far I've come and I don't know if I can do it.

    Hi all,

    I'm in an ADN program and it's an accelerated program. I'm struggling on figuring out how to study and pass exams. I study powerpoints gone over in class and make sure I know objectives. I admit, reading is not my forte but I do read for assignments and such. I know the material well, but have failed my first 2 exams. I'm scared. I'm doing my best, but maybe the program just is too fast for my learning speed....I can't figure out why I do so terribly on tests. Is there any advice on how to take tests better? And/or, studying in different patterns? I really want to move forward w/ my life and I'm feeling like I'm not only failing myself, but my family.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I wonder why they wait so long to tell people they didn't get in?? It seems like that would be easiest to get out of the way first. Sorry both of you guys that didn't get in after such a long wait. I am not convinced I got in either but at least have a plan B. Best of luck to you both!!
    It's actually annoying to wait that long and to hear a "No". I suppose (I'm only guessing here), that the rest of my application looked good and I was in that pile of "well, we'll see". Good luck to you too!

    Well I didn't make it in, so I guess I'll get my CNA license and reapply for the fall.
    Me neither. I'm not that worried about it honestly. For some reason, I almost think my 15 month accelerated program, then the 1 yr RN-BSN is better for me. Less gas to drive to Baltimore and then doing the RN-BSN is all online. Good luck!

    Well I don't think I got in because my teas and GPA weren't fantastic. I am really just tired of all of the waiting. Let me know if you got in or not! Hope is the only thing keeping me going at this point.
    I still have to finish my A&P II this semester, which I know I'll get an A in b/c it's the same professor I had for A&P I and he's amazing. He's actually a doctor, which makes class more interesting. Anyways, my teas were crap b/c I was taking Chem during the summer and was actually, very sick for most of the summer. That didn't allow me to focus on studying more for the teas/chem. I had a 3.5 for sciences until the summer. Chem really did me in w/ only getting a C in the class, but I passed it. At this point, if I don't get into MD, my plan is to apply for the local CC for the summer accelerated program which is done in 15 mon. Then, apply to the MD again for the RN-BSN program which is only a year program and all online. I'd be out working quicker and have 2 degrees almost in the same amount of time it would take for the Traditional BSN at MD. Of course, I'm basically making it sound better in my head b/c at this point, w/ all the waiting, positive thoughts decrease.

    We'll see I suppose.

    Ya I keep hoping I will receive the call and I literally check my status every hour. Hopefully we get in or at least know by the end of this week!
    Someone had posted earlier that they had called MD b/c they were anxious about waiting too. They had said everyone will know by the end of the week. Thing is, was it THAT hard of a decision to make about me? Do I look THAT bad or something? Sure my TEAS weren't wonderful, but from what I've read, MD looks at everything.

    gah! My online status still says committee ready. Do you guys think that means I got rejected then?
    Mine still says committee ready too. I had a dream last night I got accepted...hoping that dream seriously comes true. I'm sure it's due to me obsessing over this all the time though. We still can keep our heads up though! (I know it's hard being positive though).

    littletkgirl, I agree. I can't imagine that if we were rejected... we wouldn't have found out by now. Although, I'll just wait and see. Its so tough waiting though!
    I know I have to finish the A&P II I'm in now, but I expect to do very well in it. (Same prof as A&P I and he's amazing)....however, I agree, this waiting game is really long.

    I thought about calling admissions, but saw your post. I also have a back up plan, but would REALLY love to hear from Maryland soon. Congrats on getting accepted to another program! It's really driving me nuts. Status still hasn't moved from committee ready. I'm chalking it up to waitlisted and waiting on others to deny the program.

    Thank you Grey Lady. I just reminded myself, "good things come to those who wait"... I also am currently in A&P II, so there's possibly a grade the college is waiting on before decision.

    Grey Lady,
    I applied for the Baltimore campus. The more time goes by of not hearing anything, the more discouraging it becomes.

    Oye. Stressful. Thanks for the extra thoughts! I do appreciate hearing from another person in the same boat.

    So are all letters/calls out? My status hasn't changed for months from committee ready.
