LaSalle Achieve NLN scores/Fall 2012

  1. 0 I recently took the NLN entrance exam at LaSalle and I got a composite score of 133. At the end of my exam my score did not print. So Im curious, is this good/bad? .

    I'm applying for the Fall 2012 LaSalle achieve program and am finishing up my last pre req now. Science GPA is above 3.0 and overall GPA is over 3.0. Do I have a chance?

    I just took the NLN exam too at La Salle and my score didn't print either...I wrote down the info on the score screen before I left and as far as I know there was no printout. I scored a 142, and your score is great too. Most people score between 50 and 150. If you go on the NLN registration site, you should be able to log in and see your score breakdown and composite score.

    As far as GPA, La Salle requires a minimum 3.0 for the science GPA, I'm not sure how much emphasis is put on the general GPA.
    Good luck, I'm hoping to also be accepted to the Achieve program for Fall 2012. I'll be finishing up my pre-reqs this spring.

    I received an email the other day regarding a mandatory meeting for the Achieve program. I guess this is the "interview"; no more than five people will be scheduled for each meeting. I'm still working on my science prereqs so I didn't meeting the specified requirements to register for the meeting, but I emailed Kristen and it was fine. So I'll be going next Wednesday. The email said after the meeting, our files will be reviewed and we will be notified by mail of the decision.

    I would contact Kristen, there may be another round of meetings as someone said in another post that apps were reviewed three times a year.

    It went well..it was basically info about the program, and then you'll meet with Kristen individually to go over any classes you still need and she may ask why you are interested in the field. You sound like you meet all their requirements and then some, I'm sure you'll get in!

    Isitpossible: Ugh, that is actually not reassuring. Kristen said the letters would go out in a couple of weeks, but I'm wondering if I won't hear from them until after the spring semester. When you interviewed, did you have your sciences completed and your NLN scores in? I'm in the process of completing A&P II and Micro, so I'm worried they're going to wait until they get my updated transcript.

    I was accepted to Widener back in January, and I'm supposed to go in a couple of weeks to register for classes. I haven't confirmed my acceptance yet because I'm waiting to hear from La Salle. I also found out today that I got into Drexel .

    La Salle is really my first choice though, and I'm really hoping I hear from them soon! I can't put making a decision until June!

    I know I'm just trying to gauge when others have received their acceptances in relation to when they went for the interview, and their prerequisite status.

    Heather,
    I haven't heard from them....I had emailed Kristen a few weeks ago because I had a feeling that I wasn't going to have a decision before the spring semester was over (I'm finishing my sciences now) and I wanted confirmation that I could stop waiting for a letter. I had an offer from Widener with a scholarship that I was sitting on waiting for La Salle. I was given the chance to start at Widener in May so I had to get on the ball. So, I ended up confirming with Widener and actually just registered today for summer and fall (11 classes!) I hope you hear something soon!
