    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the board, planning to apply to PBISN this coming year (to *hopefully* be accepted for 2013/14). Have gotten a ton of info from this thread and others, but I have a couple of quick questions for whoever may be reading this.

    #1: How does the admissions committee calculate GPA (i.e. do they take into account ALL grades earned at ALL previous colleges attended, or just the most recent, or only certain classes etc.)? I am carrying a 4.0 at the community college I'm currently attending where I have taken all of the liberal arts/general science courses listed on their website. However, I failed the entire last semester I took at Rutgers due to medical reasons. I did well there before that, but that semester took my GPA down to a 2.4 there. That was a few years ago, though, and for legitimate reasons, so I'm hoping they will overlook it?

    #2: Being that I have a decent stretch of time until I will be applying, is it possible to take the NLN more than once?

    Thanks in advance for anyone who has advice!!

    Hi NorNor7,

    1- As for the pre-reqs awesome GPA! They will def love that and it will give you a step above the rest of the applicants. As for your gpa at Rutgers they do ask to see all transcripts from High School and onward, so you would have to supply that... but, I suggest emailing the school or meeting with one of the staff members when you are in the process of applying, explaining the situation and going from there. I believe they really look at the pre-reqs the most, but you could never be too safe because they have said in the past that the application as a whole is taken into consideration. Maybe touching upon it in your essay may be an option?... but that's all up to you.

    2- I'm actually am not 100% about this, but I have heard of people taking the NLN more than once before applying. I suggest calling up the school and asking them how much time in between each test does one have before retaking it. (I don't remember if it's every 2 or 6 months?)

    Hope this helps a bit, Good luck!

    Originally I applied for the three year track BC I need to continue working full time and I have most of the credits so that would mean only one class a semester...BUT I met a student while I was waiting for my interview and she convinced me to switch to the two year traditional track. Which are you?

    I applied for the two year trad track too! If you have all the pre-reqs why not finish quicker right? It's only 2 classes a semester I believe.
