    I think we will be finding out by the middle of July. It sucks waiting but there's not much to do at this point. I don't really know what selection criteria is most important to the school... We are all in the same boat waiting.

    Has anyone called this week for another update? We're past the 4 week mark now! As far as selection criteria, I know they strongly consider your pre-requisite grades, HESI score and recommendations.

    I took the test on May 17th 2011 for the Fall Jersey City campus. I scored an 84.86% on a class average that is 80. I'm playing this waiting game which is nerve wrecking. My gpa is 2.7 when I was at another university. I know its bad...but my science prerequisites at a community college are A's and B's with a 3.5 gpa. So I'm not sure what they are going to look at. I recently called the Secretary up and she says they are in the decision making process. Has anyone been accepted with less than a 3.0? Recommendation letters are from my boss, chemist, and collegue. Any opinion? Give it to me straight.

    I think we will all find out soon enough. I am sure the committee wants to make their decisions so they can go on vacation in July!
