    Yeah, I didn't even expect my envelope to be there, thought it was junk or a bill and then saw the yellow logo and my body turned to jello...I still had to walk halfway down the block to get home. It's so nerve racking.
    Mystiqx sounds like yours will probably be in today too. Seems like today was the day for most of us.

    Praise the Lord they're in!!! First let me tell you how I found out they were in....I found out at 1pm--just as my teacher walked in give us our A&P II test...I struggled with the test and before lab started I drove home (thank God I have a 5 minute commute) and slid into my driveway (we still have snow and ice)..ran across the road to the mailbox and ripped the envelope open. I'm happy to report that I made a 135!!! I'm in the 97th percentile for my school (I think..not sure how these things are graded) and that should be enough to get me in...(I heard 120 or better). So I was shoutin and singin and oh so happy! Now maybe I can concentrate on this micro exam I have tomorrow!!!!

    Thanks for being supportive of this frazzled chickie!!!


    YAY!!!!!! Congrats.... 135 is DEFINATELY good enough to get in (im jealous, FYI) You should treat yourself to something nice, because you definately rocked that test! Congrats!!! umpiron:

    The hubby is treating me to a date night at a very nice restaurant--we'll even get to play "dress up" and look presentable! Ha! The relief that it finally came and then the ultimate pressure releaser of seeing a good score for my school was almost too much for words...in fact, I don't think I used words--I screamed....loudly into my friend's ear who I was talking with on the phone. Ha...bad for her ears I'm sure. She made a 127 and my other brainiac friend made a 137. So glad the 3 amigos will get to go together!

    Desert, don't sweat it. Your school will see you want this and want it bad. That speaks volumes!

    Batman 24 if you see this, praying for your good results and calmness while you test. Isn't it 3/2 when you have yours??

    Congrats JDLAStew, Talulah, and DesertRain on your scores!
    I know how excited you are to have that wait over and done! On to the next wait.... For everyone else waiting, I feel your pain, I hope you get your scores soon! I had to sit down in order to open it mine!

    Hey Talulah, are you in NH? I just realized that your name looks familiar from posts that I think I read in one of the NH threads.

    Yep! im in northern NH right now....hoping to get into a school down in Manchester. What school are you applying to? Maybe we'll be in the same program

    Nope today was not my day, like I figured, i was hoping to be wrong, but guess im going to have to resign myself to waiting another week or more. I keep thinking i wrote the wrong address on my scantron or the wrong date or something. The only other thing i can think of is they didnt submit the scores yet, i know they were having another Feb test so maybe they were waiting for that one before the submitted them for scoring ( seems a little unfair to me when i think of it but hey it could happen)

    Hey Talulah, I applied to Concord, Manchester and Stratham. My hubby is in the military so I am coming back "home" to go to school since it is so hard to predict where we'll be going or for how long. I'm going to freeze though, I am in Hawaii now and it has been a chilly 60 degrees in the mornings!! :chuckle That's cold for us, but typical of the season.
    I love NH though too and I am excited to come back that way even if I freeze my buns off! Just have to get that acceptance letter first!
    Maybe we'll end up in the same program! Did you apply anywhere else?

    Mystiqx, call the NLN and ask them to verify they have your results and verify that your address is correct. I had to keep calling them practically every day because I had a deadline for one of the schools I applied to quickly approaching and I needed to have my results expedited to that school in order to meet the deadline. At least this would put your mind at ease to know if you put the right address, etc. They may even tell you when they received the scores or when they mailed them, I don't know. But I do know that when I called, the lady verified my address with me, they were really nice. Here is the number for customer service 1-800-732-8656. Hopefully it will put you a little bit more at ease, but I know it won't be complete until you get those scores in the mail!!

    :chuckle 60 degrees? hehehe!! we did have an unseasonably warm winter here for a little while, but that didnt last long- we'll be getting a Nor'easter this week Im going to have to get up extra early just to find my car under all the snow umpiron:

    I applied at NHCTC Manchester, and also to the Stratham one too. I'm hoping to get into the Manchester one. I didnt really have the greatest experience with them the other week though. Somehow with my application i had forgotten to put that im an LNA (which i know some people seem to think that being an LNA has nothing to do with being a good nurse, but sorry- i completely disagree!) Anyway...somehow i ended up speaking with the head of admissions about it and she just bluntly said that all they look at is the NLN scores..and they pretty much just take the top 56 scores to fill up the spots in the program. What?! I honestly couldnt believe what she was telling me- all you're going to look at in admitting someone is one lousy set of test scores?

    Sorry, i digress...lol... its just sad sometimes when you see lots of really good people who want to go to school to help others and its really hard to get into a decent program!!

    That really isn't a fair way to compare students, based solely on the NLN scores. Just because you score well on this type of exam doesn't mean that you are going to be a great nurse, it is only one indicator, and I don't think it is fair to be the only one. Some people are just better test takers, but that doesn't equate to better nurses necessarily. And I think that your LNA training is really important, you already have a good understanding of many of the tasks ahead of us and you know you want to be there!

    When I went to the Manchester info session they said that it would be based on the references, NLN scores and then you get the extra 10 points a piece for A&P 1 and 2. So all three areas would be computed in some way to figure out if you are getting into the program.
    I have also heard a poster on here awhile back ago was wait-listed for Stratham and they were in the 99th percentile, so they have to be looking at other areas other than NLN scores, at least in that particular case.

    It is strange to get differing information, both people, the one leading the info session and the head of admissions, should really have the right info, and obviously someone doesn't.

    eeek! Wait-listed when they got in the 99th?? I didnt get anywhere near the 99th.....:chuckle sucks for me!

    Yeah,,, my results came in. I got a 137, composite percentile of 96. I hope that is good enough to get me in. My taking this test was a shot in the dark at hopefully filling 1 of 15 seats left open for the top 15 test scores they leave open after filling with pre req's. That way I wouldn't have to wait until spring of 08. I'm afraid just yet to get all excited.
