    YKN6000,

    It seems that you are probing to find out how everyone else did but you are hiding your results...

    Thats fine though...Wish you the best!

    Good Luck to all those awaiting acceptance letters.

    I spoke to one of the directors they said they don't know anything yet, due to the fact that some members of the admissions board want to change the way the scores are looked at because they think its 2 strict especially since they no longer break the score down to separate 2 year and 4 year school percentiles. but SNHRN2b you def got in, I got a 116 and she told me not to worry that I did very well so you did extraordinary, probably one of the best!! She said the last group/column (relative percentiles has to be above 50) if they look at the exam score the way they normally do. She also mentioned that we should know something by mid-November.

    I also spoke to my friend who is already in the program and graduate this year, she said she got in with a 120 composite but she scored 50 and above in the percentiles so you have nothing to worry about

    Thanks Miracle!

    I hope you are right!

    I know that people are still testing this week and next week...I can't wait for those letters to go out.

    Another counselor that i spoke with told me that they would be accepting more applicants this time around too.

    Really? more applicants? y?.....thats a good thing though

    If people are still testing I wonder if that's going to push back the time frame for the letters to be mailed out.....hmm

    I'm surprised their still testing I thought the 21st was the last day, I didn't see any other dates opened when I went to register for the test online

    I have a couple of people in one of my classes that are scheduled to take the test on Monday 10/31...

    Last week, they opened up more test dates for this week and Monday, then a couple of folks went and changed their date to this upcoming Monday.

    I was thinking that the process would be delayed...I hope that it does not.

    Sorry for the late answer. I dont think I asked somebody's score, did I? I said I wanna get some ideas how other people did on the test generally rather than scrore itself.. Some people are confident enough to say their score, but others are not I think. So I expected to hear that how they feel what they did on the test generally. Sorry for that if I am looked like a person who checks other people's score only!) but I am not... just wanted to share our review after the test ! Lol and just not too confident to say my score!!:'((

    YKN6000,

    I can understand how you might not feel very confident. I don't think that anyone can truly feel confident until they've received the letter informing them that they were accepted. Ultimately, that is what we are looking to receive. Try to keep positive thoughts... YKN6000 we are all in the same boat at this point.

    Best of luck to you!

    Hi Everyone!

    Is there anyone in this thread that is an evening student in the program? I just want to get an exact or rough time schedule of the classes in the first year. I just want to sketch out a plan ahead of time if I should scale back on full time work. Thanks!
