    deimysd, you are doing great. Those are good solid scores for Kaplan, and do not be surprised if Q-Trainers 6 and 7 you are a little lower; they are all above the passing line questions and...

  7. People share your Kaplan Scores! :D
    In the Kaplan class I recently took the teacher said that if you're in the 50's that's good and you're getting there. If you're in the 60's you're solid and if you're in the 70's you're a rock star.

    I am pretty sure that anything they say is required on the application is truly required. If you don't have it, you won't be considered. Competition is pretty tough for this program and I know that...

    Sorry, no help with specifics of housing. As far as the GPA goes for ABSN, I agree with Abalone. Mine was 3.95 or so and most of my colleagues had similar. I feel the essays for the application...
