    I wondered about the hours completed, also. I'll use myself for an example for what I think. I get 10 points for GPA. I also get 2 points for math, and 1 point for A&P. So, that leaves me with 13. If they do what I think, they may just take the 19 hours I have completed and add that together. So that would leave me with 32. The perfect scenario would be 48 points, I think (4.0, all 27 hours completed). However, ****** ******* mentioned that other schools like South are quarterly. Thus, their credit hours are a lot different from ours. So that pretty much makes my theory about literally adding in our hours completed wrong. She also mentioned that the nursing committee likes to keep their methods of decision making as secret as possible. Except for the hint about the PTA page. Did you go to the meeting, NIKI2286?

    No I wasnt able to arrange childcare for my boys after work. If I add my points up the way you did I would have 36 ; 7 for my gpa, 27 hours completed, and 2 for my math.

    Honestly, I think there was less than 100 people that showed up. I thought that going to the session would give me an idea as to how many were applying, but I guess not. A lot of the people there haven't even applied yet. They were only attending to see if they would like to apply next year. Lauren said that she had gone through all of the applications and has/is sending them off to the committee for their review and approval. Also.....wait for it...... she said that their review should be done before the end of April. I thought everyone would like that part, but for some reason, it slipped my mind until now.

    Well ladies, I'm officially a nervous wreck. I heard the 3.8 GPA thing again from a different person. Lots of girls in my micro class were talking about how they have 3.9s and higher... I was also reminded that GPA is the most important thing the committee looks at when judging acceptance or denial. I'm stressing to no end. I really hope I'm working myself up for nothing.

    Me too! Without us knowing exatly how everything is weighted we have no clue. Go look back at last years thread and read thru it....some people didnt have all there classes and didn't have all A's and got accepted. I'm trying to be optimistic because if I dont get in I have some revaluating to do.... Sorry for any typos, I'm sending this from my phone

    I've looked and looked, but I haven't had much luck. I was hoping more people would reply to the thread I started, so we could get a better idea. I suppose there aren't any other Roane State hopefuls besides us. There's only a few more weeks to go, so hopefully the emails will come soon, and we can stop worrying and celebrate!

    I've already found a problem! Last year, I had a transcript sent to RSCC. I was reviewing all of my classes on Raidernet the other day, and saw that the classes I took at that school didn't appear. So, I emailed my adviser and she told me that when they update the system, it should show up and I shouldn't worry about it. Still not satisfied, I emailed ****** *******. She also didn't see my classes, so I emailed the office of records and registration. They told me that they had received the transcript and not to worry. I relayed that message to Lauren, who then assured me that in order for the committee to see those classes, I should be able to see them on Raidernet. Freaking out, I called records. They had to put me through to the lady over it all, and she said that they had received the transcript in August of 2011, but no one ever entered it into the computer, and she didn't know why. How ridiculous!! They said that because it wasn't my fault, I could have until Tuesday for them to get it posted. If they can't, then I lose those classes that were on that transcript. This is not cool.

    "If all criteria are equal, preference will be given to the earlier application date." Just another thing for me to worry about

    I received confirmation today from someone who spoke with Ms. Robbins. The average GPA that was accepted last year was a 3.8. However, that's just an average, so I'm sure there were people with lower than that. There's still hope for me Also, she said that if one has accumulated quite a few total credit hours, that might help your chances too. I'm trying my darndest to stay as positive as I can during this wait. We got this!!
