Does anyone have any information as to what the average grade point and Hesi scores are for this year? How many people actually applied for the program and took the Hesi? When does Macomb usually send out acceptance letters?
Also, even though the criteria is different this year, any idea as to what the lowest scores/gpa were for acceptance last year?
I looked at my nursing rank letter that the school sent me on 4-7-09 and it listed the average HESI composite scores and GPAs of the previous 3 years:
2006- 90 HESI Composite and 3.8928 GPA
2007- 94 HESI Composite and 3.9375 GPA
2008- 93 HESI Composite and 3.9380 GPA
I hope that helps a little.
I got in for this school year and I just started with the 4th and last entry group for the year, in March. My scores were 92 HESI Composite and 3.7923 GPA.
My letter says that well over 1000 people apply for the program each year. I believe they told us 1400 applied for 2009 when I went to the orientation.
I agree with the other poster about Macomb sending out acceptance letters in April. You'll get the ranking letter first, which will have info like I posted above, then about 2 weeks later, you'll get your acceptance letter.
On the ranking letter, it just tells you if your nursing applicant file is complete or not, and the info I have above. They don't actually rank you until about 2 weeks later. And when I got my acceptance letter, they didn't tell me where I ranked, just that I got in.
It does say that they were accepting 152 students for the Fall 2009 program, but I know that they have gone up to 177 or 178 people because two people in my clinical class are alternates, and one of them just got in 2-3 weeks before our first class.
I hope that helped a little and good luck! You'll get your acceptance letter in about a month!
