    i am still confused about something with the admission and ranking. under the ranking portion of the admission requirment section it says that "we will rank applicants following completion of admission requirments 1-6. this will be used to determine your eligibility to take the entrance exam and for admission to the program." so my question is, do we have to take another entrance exam besides the teas? because number 6 on the admission requirments talks about the teas and it says that you have to get a minimum of 53.1% on the 1st or 2nd try and that it needs to be taken prior to the start of any application period.

    so if that is the case then what entrance exam are they referring to if we have to take the teas as part of admission requirments 1-6? i hope someone here knows the answer to this question. in the mean time i am going to email one of the women over the program to see if she can answer this for me as well.
    i believe that the rules changed recently about the eligibility to take the teas test. i'm in the freshman class now and we were eligible to take the teas if we ranked high enough in admissions. now, i believe they want you to already have the teas taken before you've been accepted. there are no other entrance tests that i know of. perhaps, they forgot to take out the "we will rank applicants following completion of admission requirments 1-6. this will be used to determine your eligibility to take the entrance exam and for admission to the program."

    good luck!

    thats what i was thinking too, but i was just a little confused and thought that i would ask. so are you in the day or evening class and how do you think the program is for you so far.
