    Anyone about to take TEAS? What is it like?
    I took it in the beginning of the year. Here is my post about it:

    Thank you for the info. I have taken the online practice assessment and did well in english and math but the sciences I didn't do well. How can you study for all that and it is not even required to take in the prereq's-physics,etc?

    well, you really can't. I had a book i got from ATI, there is a section on Science, and that helped me a lot; the book gives you a good review of what to expect. I would recommend it. You can, probably, find a version online.

    This is really hard for me to believe. They definitely make sure that all of the prereqs are taken and that the cumulative grade for the required courses is higher than 2.77.
    Are you calling me a liar? I also applied there and I was lacking one pre-req at the time of application and I was accepted also. She had not taken any pre-reqs at the time of application and was accepted. Would you like me to send you my acceptance letter and her email so you can email her and verify??

    Obviously it wasn't a good decision on their part to accept her, as she failed out, as I mentioned earlier. I decided to go for an entry-level master's instead of another bachelor's.

    1. wow, defensive much? the poster simply said it is hard to believe, which it is. letting someone in on the contingency of finishing one pre-req class before the program starts is one thing, but allowing someone to completely forego ALL the pre-reqs is hard to believe.

    How about everyone just taking a step back and cooling off. No need to post inflammatory statements.

    Took it today and did really well! I think they curve the test a little cause I really didn't know the science that well. On the practice assessment I scored 60% and today on the test I made 87%.

    How is your experience so far? My friend is going to Southwest and is pretty overloaded. I am sure you won't have time to even get on here. Good luck and keep your chin up if it is anything like what my friend is going through. She bombed her first test and has to write a paper about why she did poorly and her plans to do better on the next exam in Foundations. She did get a 91 on her dosages and calculations today.

    I have applied for SP11 as well. If you have at least a 2.7 I think you are good and pass the TEAS-I passed it. I hope to hear from them soon! Let me know when you hear something.

    Does anybody know how long it takes to get a reply on acceptance? I've looked everywhere on their website and can't find a timeline on when to look for letters in the mail.
