    Ok I realize that some of you passed but I found the best refresher for some subjects for the exam on YouTube! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_-vZ_g7K6P0

    This was for DNA! This really helped me!
    Most of the terms I remember but just braking it down for me was a guardian angel!

    Just thought I'd share 😊

    I'm taking the PSB next Friday at Shadyside. I'm applying for Mercy with Shadyside as a backup. I'm a little bit nervous about the exam. Hopefully I'll do well!

    Hi all,

    I just applied to Mercy for fall 2013 admission. I am originally from Pittsburgh but stationed in San Diego. Since I am currently active duty Navy, I used my SAT scores instead of taking the PSB. I am hoping that I get in. How long does it take after you apply to hear back from them?

    I'm not sure how long a decision on our applications take. I hope not too long! I'm SO anxious right now!

    I anxious and nervous. My high school GPA was only a 2.5. But i graduated in 2004. My current college GPA is a 4.0. Hopefully they will overlook the high school grades. I plan to call them on Monday to make sure they received everything.

    I hope Mercy is 2 weeks as well! I think I can do 2 weeks...2 months?? TOTALLY different story! Lol. Navydude, when did you apply? I wouldn't worry too much about your high school grades. You have college credits and you are in the Navy. I think they realize you're a different person then you were 8 or 9 years ago ;o)

    I mailed my application in on January 23rd. If it only takes two weeks to make a decision, I should be hear something soon.

    OK! I turned my application in today! She said a decision is usually made within 7-10 days, so let the waiting game begin!!! I'm so excited! And even if I don't get in this time, its ok because there's always Spring '14 :-) that's what I keep telling myself anyways lol.Navydude, I applied to ALL of the schools (lol). Mercy 1st, Shadyside 2nd, and the St.Margaret campus 3rd & 4th.....SOMEBODY'S gotta accept me!! Hahaha
