    I wasn't able to talk with someone in the nursing department at Kingwood, but I did speak with the nursing department at Cy-Fair. They told me to check with the testing center to see if the scores had been processed. I talked with a woman at the Kingwood testing center (which is where I took my HESI) and she said that the nursing department picks up the scores from the testing center and then enters them in their system. She checked on my scores and said she could see where I had taken the HESI, but that the nursing department just hasn't entered it in yet. I left a message for the nursing department at Kingwood just making sure they have my scores and if there is anything else I need to do. I haven't heard back from them yet. I know there is plenty of time and I'm sure they are very busy right now with the application period and may be dealing with lots of questions. I will be patient, but I will keep following up with them. I just want to turn everything in and not stress about it for a little while.

    I was able to fix mine today and turn it in! I had to call the nursing dept. at the Montgomery campus (that's where I took my HESI) and over the phone the lady updated my scores and it reflected immediately online. The whole phone call took about 3 minutes! I then printed out all the paperwork including the new score sheet, signed it all, and took it and dropped it off at the kwood office! I'm so relieved to have all of that turned in! I would call the testing center and get see what you could get done there. I know there is still plenty of time, but you never know how many ppl you're going to have to fo through to get corrections made! Lol Sometimes people are there are SO helpful and other times no so much. :/

    Nevermind, I just saw where you said that you talked to the testing center already.

    I would def follow up because you have to turn in a signed copy of your score sheet with the correct score on it as part of your application. If that isn't turned in they may not use the correct score for you..there are a lot of applicants and it could get overlooked.

    Thank you! @manders235
    I am just retaking psych and the teacher is good so far. But this application period is only for Cy-fair and Kingwood. I want Cy-fair as my 1st choice..... I think next application period is Jan 2013 and all four schools will be taking applications so I might have a shot. But I'll still try this time and see. I have the HESI guide and I try to read it everyday but I'm very worried about A & P part!!!

    I remember reading back on the first or second page someone was wondering the number of accepted applicants for the Quest and the basic/generic track for the ADN program. The basic/generic program takes 40 students and the Quest online takes 20.

    My guess, would be that anyone with 11.6+ is about as close to guaranteed as you can get. As long as your GPA isn't terrible, anything above that is pretty impressive and should put you near the top.

    I'm *pretty* sure the basic track at Kingwood takes 80 (if that's what you're talking about) but only because they have a day and night program! Which is awesome!

    Also, I sure hope you're right about the 11.6 thing!!

    That's also what I had written down when I attended one of the information sessions-Kingwood's basic track has 80 spots and Cy-Fair has approximately 40 spots.

    I know! I need to find something to take my mind off of counting down the days! I know letters go out in September, but do you know approximately when?

    I'm not really sure. :/ It closes Sep. 9th and then I'm sure it will take a couple of weeks or so to process them all. I'm assuming it will be more towards the end of Sep and, from what I've read of past threads on here, maybe even the first week of October. I sure hope it's Sep though! I cannot wait!

    I have been bored out of my mind lately...I am a stay at home mom of two boys and I class doesn't start for me until Aug so I am just sitting here twiddling my thumbs. Lol I did start reading 50 Shades of Grey last week after hearing every woman I know rave about it. Lol It's been taking up some of my time having a few books to dive into!

    Manders235,

    I emailed ****** today to ask a question about the applications and in her response she added in the letters will be sent out 4-6 weeks after the closing date...so I'm assuming that it will def be the beginning of Oct when we receive them.

    That's what I figured. I had seen on another thread for the last application period for Tomball, NH, and Montgomery that it had taken about that long for them too. I am taking a summer class now and then I will be taking classes in the fall too so I hope that keeps me occupied until letters go out.
