    Ooooooooh ok. Thanks! I didn't do that the first time. The first time I only answered the ones I was positive of. For the test I took this past Saturday I did answer EVERYTHING! Lol...so we'll see how it turns out. Now for the waiting game of getting my scores back!

    I'm applying to go there or Shadyside as a back up but St Margaret is closer for me. I hate driving in the city! That makes me feel better kind of now that I know how the test is scored they were not clear on that AT ALL.

    Hi! I just wanted to join the conversation. I just mailed in my application packet the other day. I'm hoping to get accepted to the Mercy program. Fingers crossed! I'm really hoping I get accepted! I am a transfer student from St. Louis, Mo. My family and I moved here back in August.
