Hi Everyone, In Desperate Need of Advice about Baker Colleges Program

  1. 0 Hi Everyone,

    I am trying to decide what to do with Baker, in Clinton Township.

    I am a current student and am finishing my prerequisite classes. I had met with the director
    and she seemed phenomenal, I love the program, and I love Baker, but just do not know what to do!

    This is my dilemma however.

    Upon coming into Baker College there was an issue with financial aid, and it was
    communicated that if there were any issues I could drop the classes without any potential setbacks.
    Well that first semester there were problems with financial aid, and I dropped the classes. As well it was communicated that these classes were to be taken off my record. They did take one off, but not the other, and they are giving me hell to take it off, even though in the very beginning they said it would not hurt me. Well now come to find out it is dropping me by a point. As every point counts. I am trying to have it taken off so please let me know what you all think I should do!

    Thus I have finished my prequisites, and have only the Holistic Healthcare, and Nursing Pharmacology left to complete. After meeting with the Nursing Advisor she said that if I cannot take that one class off my record, the ability for me to get into the program is very slim, unless I can get the spring 2007 class removed from my transcript. As I had repeated a psychology as the first time was online, and horrible, but the second time I passed with a B. What is hurting me is the first class not being taken off, as it was communicated.

    My transcript is listed below

    The questions I need help with is after I finish the two prerequisites with a solid A will that boost my GPA significantly?

    Is a 3.7 whatever good enough to attend Baker's nursing program?

    Has anyone ever had success in having a class taken off a transcript at Baker? What should I do in my circumstance?

    What is the cut off point for points?

    Have other students been able to get into the nursing program at Clinton Township with this GPA?

    What did one need to score on the first NET test, and what is the maximum amount of points one can get if you receive a top score?

    Is it better for me to look at Davenports program?

    As well what have your experiences been at Baker? How did you like the nursing program? Where were your
    clinical site located at for Clinton Township?

    If you all could help me out I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you, as well please send me private messages if you need too!

    Thanks Everyone.

    I'm sorry I didn't respond to this sooner, as I just joined the site and found it. I'm sure you figured out what to do, since this post was almost a year ago, but I'd be happy to answer all those questions if you're still in need. Let me know!
