    Oh, wow. the highest you've heard yet? Right on! I didn't mean to add to your nervousness though! Maybe I just lucked out. lol What are the average scores you've heard? We should be happy we made it through, I guess! It sounds like a lot of people didn't even pass!

    Haha no worries, I'm happy for you! A couple 89,90s and then some low 80s! I honestly think you have nothing to worry about though! I wish next week would hurry up did you use anything specific for studying writing?

    Well, hopefully there aren't a bunch of super high scores out there. I'm still on edge waiting for that frickin letter! I studied the kaplan and the McGraw-Hill books for about a month, but the Kaplan had nothing about the writing in it. The McGraw-Hill had a little... I didn't really come across much to prepare for that section. Have you applied to other schools as well?

    Great scores! I got a 96 in math, a 95 in reading and a 81 in writing. I'm really nervous! Hoping that's good enough to get me in

    Haha I can only hope! Talk about a nervous reck! Those are the books I used also but like you said, no real help to the writing section. I'm not sure what it was, I felt like I was familiar with the questions they were asking but then again test taking isn't my strength haha. I have a couple more classes until I can apply for TMCC so at this point no, just Carrington! How about you?

    Those are good scores too, enraymond! Maegen, the questions were often confusing on that section and difficult to study for. Also, missing just a few quickly reduces your score. We only have a week to a week and a half now before we get those letters! I only applied to Carrington. I'm a couple prerequisites short to apply to TMCC. if I don't make it in, I am going to continue working on those and applying to both schools. I hear TMCC is hard to get into. Are you a reno native?

    Very confusing! I understood every question and felt confident throughout the whole section only to find out I did far from what I expected :/ I feel like the days are creeping by! I have my science courses left and then ill give tmcc a try. I'm in the CNA class with some people applying and a majority of them have 4.0s or pretty close, makes me nervous haha

    Yeah... It's very competitive, I guess. I'm from the Bay Area originally, but have lived in Lassen and Plumas counties for the past 8 years. Bought a house in Sparks last spring. I love it here.

    I'm from the Bay Area, as well! I moved up to Reno almost two years ago. Did either of you get called in for an interview to fill out an application?
