    Thanks mystiqx. I've only applied to the BSN program at Hunter/CUNY. Barring the improbable cataclysm of not passing microbiology, I should be fine getting into the program (fingers-crossed). Are you applying to Hunter as well?

    Teresa, the only advice I can give you is to relax. You'll stress out enough waiting for your results, there's no need adding to your aggravation. At this point it might not be the best strategy to concentrate your engery on the verbal section. If anything it might best to focus your last minute studying on the math and science. The math is basic, just a lot of arithmetic one must do quickly. As for the science section re-read the introduction information given in Mcdonald's book - it should help you. And most important of all have confidence in yourself and relax! Good luck.

    Yup, I grew up in California and moved to nyc about 7 years ago. Did you get your results back yet Caeiluna?

    Hey there, no I didn't apply to Hunter, I applied to Philips Beth Israel's ADN program. Im beginning to lose hope that I will be apcepted to be honest with you. oh well.

    This seems to be the year of Hunter, i can hardly find anyone else on the forums who applied to Beth Israel epcept for one.

    Heya santacruz! yup yup! I got a 151, posted it before. Not so confident about getting in the program though... my GPA is only 3.4. There are a couple of hunter hopefuls here! Me, trin, and nessa... (and the many lurkers out there! HALLOW guys!)

    Glad you could join us!

    LOL! Great score but I bet you kind of kicked yourself like I did for not getting a better score - I have a feeling you're as nuts as I am. I think you'll be fine. Last year's average gpa was 3.48 and I can pretty much guess that the median NLN composite was south of 151 by at least 15 points (but of course it's just my guess). Definitely true about the lurkers - I was one of them!

    Mystiqx, try not to be too down on yourself. Until you get that letter you're still in the running and even if you don't get in that doesn't mean a nursing program is not in your future.

    Hey caeiluna, no phone call yet, im beginning to get very discouraged, i called them again this week and got the same response. I keep telling myself I did everything I could and i just need some patience

    To add to my worry, Im going to Barcelona Spain at the end of May and it would really suck if they decided to call me then for an interview when i am gone, that would just be my luck.

    Wow. Is this the normal processing time that they have?!? Hopefully they call you before your vaca. If not, you could always talk to your network provider about their roaming/triband service so you can take calls overseas.

    Wishing the best for you M. Keep us posted!

    YES! absolutely yes. Prior to taking the test, I was really hoping i get 160-ish. But afterwards, I thought that the score was generous. hahahaha.

    Thanks

    They don't give you any idea on when to expect calls, or how long it takes the admissions committee to come to a decision. Its apply and wait. It seems like people with high NLN scores got immediate phone calls at least last year it looked that way. I dunno, this is very fustrating

    Hi Guys!
    Well as most of you know if you have read my posts, I took the NLN exam at Hunter on 3/3 and left 20 questions completely blank as I thought there were only 60 instead of 80 questions. It wasnt until I was opening up the exam booklet for the Math section that I seen the remaining 20 questions I left out!
    Anyway, I received my scores yesterday and got a 126 composite. I did better than I thought i did, because I couldnt even focus on the exam after i realised the huge blunder i had made, and spent the remainder of the exam trying to fight back the tears. it was like my worst nightmare. The verbal is the easiest section on the whole exam and i left 20 QUESTIONS COMPLETELY BLANK!!!! I couldnt even guess shade in the bubbles as we werent even allowed to turn over the answer sheet, and there was a proctor standing beside me at all times. I ran out of there that day and cried hysterically for 2 hours.........!
    Anyway, I got 94th percentile in both the Science and Math section and in the 35th percentile in the Verbal which is just so upsetting cos it seems so unfair! I dont know if Hunter has a passing standard for each section. The 35th percentile looks terrible.
    The only thing I have in my advantage is that I have a 4.0 GPA, but i dont even know how much of a help that will be to me now. I feel like I just let everything slip through my fingers. Trini, SantaCruz and DoGood2u, your scores are exceptional and im so jealous. You guys did fantastic and should be so proud of yourselves.
    I have dreamt about going to Hunter Nursing School and havent even applied anywhere else, and i have worked so hard to maintain a 4.0 GPA and now it doesnt even seem to matter.
    Ok, Ive vented enough!!! Lol!
    Best of luck to everybody! Batman, I hope and pray your scores will be everything you wanted - I have a good feeling about it! Ur a sweetheart and deserve it!
    Have a great weekend everybody!

    Hey Nessa
    You still came out with a good score, I know you are very upset but don't be too hard on yourself, Hunter might surprise you.

    Heya nessa!

    Im more and more convinced that Hunter admissions operates in very mysterious ways (sent you priv. msg). So its not over for us yet until we get the decision this May! Don't lose hope.

    Heres to hoping its already May! And here's to hoping HUnter does surprise us!
