Hi, Just wondering if anyone out there applied for CUNY Hunter's generic pathway for fall 2012? Haven't seen a thread anywhere on this site so I thought I'd make one. :)... Read More
- 0Quote from paywHeyy thereI mean, the NLN site says 200....but I think its nearly impossible to score that high. At the open house, the nursing advisor said 165 was the highest score possible, and generic applicants should aim for 145-155.
Did the adviser mean that 165 is the highest possible score for the composite portion? Because technically it can go to 200. The raw score stops at 160 (60 + 40 + 60) though.
Do you have any idea what typically the highest NLN scores are in the generic program??? Are there many people who score about 150/160?
- 0Feb 29, '12 by paywTechnically it can go to 200, but what I think she meant was not very many people actually do achieve above a 165. She said that generic program applicants that are accepted generally have a 145-155, and that accelerated applicants accepted generally have a 155-165. I don't know about in the past, but check this thread and you'll see that applicants this year are doing really well.
- 0I see... wow didn't know the accelerated program had such high standards!
I don't know how much better applicants are doing this year compared to the last. I don't think the average should deviate too far from that 145-155 NLN composite average score. Sure, some people get above 155... but then again you can expect just as many to get below 145 who get in.
- 0Are there any other indications that this year is more competitive than the previous? Besides the information presented in this thread. Personally, I have two friends who scored in the 130s so that doesn't tell me much
I heard a rumor that they consider your NLN much more heavily than your GPA... is that true?
Thanks for any info!!
