    Lol, thats about right. I figure they didn't read anyone's letter that had an index score lower than the cut off! Im starting to wonder if Ill have no competition applying lol.. Only a handful of people in my Micro and AP classes said they were applying to SW! Im going to submit everything tomorrow and just keep my fingers crossed! I still don't understand how the cut off is Feb 1 and it takes them till April to call... lol

    To apply to the program, you need to complete A&P I and II and Micro. There's other classes you'll need to have completed to graduate, but not necessarily to apply (ENGL, STATS, PSYC, etc). The Compass test is rather easy, I'm not sure the exact scores you need, but the testing center at Macon could tell you. I had been out of HS for 5 years when I took mine and I was able to surpass the minimum scores without any reviewing. You'll need to take the NLN PAX-RN exam offered at SWTCC. You need a minimum of 100 on this to even apply. It's only offered a few times a year, so check with the testing center.

    Will definitely do that thanks. One more quick question about the compass, are we allowed to use calculators ?

    Hey there. I think you are allowed to use a calculator for the Compass. I know for the NLN Pax-RN exam calculators are NOT allowed. The math portion of that exam was the easiest, IMO! Hope this helps
