    I got admitted into day programme. I dont know if I am excited, because I know how hard the programme is.. I know how my friends were studying nursing, not having life at all besides studying...and I have small children now, so I dont know how I will make it.

    Hey Madmama, how did your advising appointment? Were they clear on why you didn't get in?

    This was the explaination-
    Each completed class is 2.3 points- I only have around 9 points there.
    My GPA was 3.2 and my score was 75-- but they choose people differently-
    2nd-- don't believe people's Teas scores. I asked her why would anyone brag about a lower score than mine? Meaning I had someone with a 68 and AP2 remaining get in over me on a GPA. That's not right. She had absolutely no answer.
    Told me since my GPA is going down a tenth with my B in AP1 to get the 76.

    I don't really think it's a matter of anyone bragging about getting a lower score. As someone that received a lower score than you, I don't really think it's fair to technically be shaming those that got into the program with a lower score, as everyone has worked equally as hard, regardless of the outcome. With a program with such competitive entry as JJC, every bit counts and is taken into consideration. When one applicant has an A in one of the prerequisites and the other applicant has a B, or a C, that can make all the difference and be the deciding factor - regardless of how each portion is weighted. There isn't much room for error, and even though the TEAS is weighted more than GPA, the GPA is still considered and makes an impact.
