Sad, I got rejected!!! I'm not really devasted. (Not yet at least.) Only applied to one school, and have to wait until end of this semester to apply to any of my other choices. (Ok, I'm partly devasted now). Anyway, I know it was because of that freakin Teas Test. I tanked the Science portion, a 63.3%, that was one of their major focus areas.
I could give a million reasons on why I think that my school's policy on Nursing Program entry is not fair. It doesn't matter that I"m on the Dean's list. It doesn't matter that I work really hard to get the 3.83 gpa I have. I got 2 new babies at home, a husband working nights, and I'm returning to school after a 17-18 year break (IT DOES NOT MATTER).
. Some genius decided that WHOMEVER HAS THE HIGHEST TEAS SCORES GET IN THE PROGRAM
These are the rules! Better luck next time, I guess. (I have reached full blown devastation). I'm appealing it tomorrow!!
No not really, I'm just trying to remain happy, you know. Lesson learned on studying for the standardized tests, and apply for more schools next time.
Lastly, I'm proud of me for having the courage to apply. Before I had my kids, I was afraid to go to college. Afraid of getting rejected (I didn't believe in my own intelligence). Today, I can say, I'm pretty darn smart. Good luck to all applying.
