    They called the following Tuesday and discussed my scores with me but they didn't mention anything about the interview. When the test used to be the HESI, interviews weren't arranged until the end of testing. If you don't mind me asking, what were your scores on the test?

    I scored a 96 in math, a 95 in reading, and an 81 in writing. The writing was really difficult for me even though I usually do well in that subject.

    I just had my interview at the beginning of the week. As far as the test goes, I found the kaplan study guide to be appropriate study material. The math part was the easiest as it was pretty basic and you can always work backwards with multiple choice questions. The reading comprehension was difficult in that I really had to focus on making sure I knew what exactly the question is asking. Pay attention to key words. The writing portion was full of questions asking about correct usage of verbs, and which word was used improperly. Overall the test is 71 questions so it is easy to make errors and not be satisfied with your overall score. I scored in the 80's and I'm hoping that it will be enough to get me in.

    I've seen the same with most averages around like a 73. From what I've seen scores for the Kaplan are usually lower than the Hesi. I'm still trying to decide whether ot not to retake the Kaplan.

    I had an interview too! I had a second financial aid meeting today. Im hoping that getting the interview is a good sign! I scored in the 90s in math and reading, 80s for writing. Writing was really difficult.
