    Rae, are you taking the online course they offer at Chatham online? I don't really think it's worth all of that money. I think the best thing you can do is answer as MANY questions as you can. They said they only count the number correct, so just try to answer EVERYTHING. An educated guess might yield a right answer. And on the reading comprehension, try just skimming the passage for the answer you're looking for. It's rough & a lot of pressure, but those 15 minutes are over before ya know it! Good luck! Hope I see you this fall at Mercy!! )

    Ugh I am really going to appreciate if I get into mercy... They rescheduled my class to help with the exam. Does anyone know how many confirmed mercy has? As of feb there were 33. Do you know the deadline? And what is the latest anyone has heard of someone getting in??

    Rae, I would think that it depends on the last testing date (which I believe is sometime in may). I'm not sure if all of the seats fill up by then, but I would guess that's the deadline anyway. Good luck and please keep us posted!
