    I, too, am waiting for my letter! I haven't received anything yet. I know that points are given for ACT score, GPA, and TEAS, but what is a competitive score? How many points are given for each? Any ideas?

    Hi annae2012 I spoke to someone that actually does the evaluating of the files and she told me that you can get up to six pts. I'm confused. I believe there is alot of miscommunication going on. I bombarded her with questions that she couldn't answer. I have a degree and she told me you get 2 points for that and I still didnt get in come on now...really? Just need to vent

    I emailed the contact also but i have not gotten a reply. Are y'all trying for Spring? Or LPN?

    Hi CgMoM09, Yes, I asked to be reconsidered for the spring she said she would put my name on the list.

    oh ok. I am thinking about maybe trying for LPN b/c they do give consideration for LPN's. I don't know if its worth it though.

    CgMoM09 what kind of considerations do they give are you applying to the NWCC Lpn program
  9. by   CgMoM09
    if you have 24 or more hours of LPN they will give you extra consideration it says it in the FAQ's. you can even transfer your teas score to the LPN program.

    I don't have any LPN hours do you. Wait are we talking about for the RN program(if you have 24 hours of LPN hours they take into considerations)
