Barnes Jewish College

  1. 0 Okay, current and/or former students and rejectees:


    Has anyone been rejected due to their gpa? Was the gpa less than 3.2. I'm afraid that with their competivness, I won't get accepted.

    You know, I can't afford to quit my job really and I am not willing to quit to go to the cc and make some silly mistake as I did on the dosage test and get kicked out of the program. I really can't afford to take that risk. I am supposed to start Maryville in Jan but I can't get into the program until Fall 09. I'm gonna try BJC for Spring 09 also. :spin:

    BTW...I haven't retaken the dosage test.

    Unlike many other programs, you don't arbitrarily get kicked out of the cc for not passing a dosage test. And so far, it hasn't been required to get 100% to pass. Each semester since first, we've taken one at the beginning of the semester and if you don't pass with (either?) 90 or 95%, then they work with you to ensure that we understand what our "silly mistake"(s) were and then you move on.

    Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck!!

    i am pretty sure that Barnes doesnt have a wait list, so I dont think you have to worry about "competition"

    My CC has three dosage and calculations tests over the course of the entire program that we must pass with 100%.

    Congradulations!
    I know from all your posts you've been working hard to get there! Good luck! Are you taking additional classes for the BSN between now & then? Just curious. You'll make a great nurse!

    Yep, I'm taking it now at FP. I recommend Applebaum if she's available.

    Good luck on your acceptance.

    Applebaum is the teacher I'll have this summer, at FP. I've already taken A&P I & II and Micro there as well, and I still have statistics to take in the fall. So... I might see you at Barnes next spring, if I get in!! Thanks!
