    Hi there! I am in foundations now and wanted to reply to the GPA questions. I got in with a 3.5 and 97 on my HESI and was not an alternate. I think obviously, the higher you score on your HESI the better. Our cut off for first round selection was 92 and then some alternates got in with a 91 or 90. Enjoy your time now before you start because first semester is crazy crazy stressful and busy!

    Waiting somewhat patiently. I signed up for a CPR class on NW campus the week after finals. I want to get it out of the way so I won't be in a rush at the end of the summer.

    No, it is not listed on the website. I found out about it from flyers up on the bulletin boards. It is through Health Services on the NW campus. Only $15 for the 4 hour class and you get the book too. I am taking the last class of the semester on May 15th. They only do face to face registration for the class.

    Just make sure that the course is for healthcare providers! They offer different certifications but as a nursing student or hospital staff, it has to specifically be the health care providers certification.

    Good luck! Your arms get tired. And quickly!

    Hi Everyone (:
    I'm new to this thread and am also patiently awaiting a response for the Fall 2013 semester. I am really nervous and curious to see if my grades are competitive enough for this program. I have a 4.0 in my sciences and an 88 on my HESI. I definitely wish my HESI score was higher, because compared to some of the amazing grades I've seen on this thread my grade seems pretty sad. Anyways, I just wanted to join in and make a few friends while counting down the days until May. Good Luck to everyone!

    Welcome LTM90

    Have you looked at past threads to see if there were some with similar scores who were accepted. Just to get an idea, maybe?

    Thank you PJE22!
    Actually I have glanced through a few threads trying to compare but its difficult because those who have around the same HESI score as me seem to have a little lower gpa and I don't know which weighs more or if they have the same weight. I did notice one to two others who were comparable to mine (within a few points) and they were accepted but I know when it comes down to it it all depends on the grades of THIS applicant pool and may not have the same outcome as other semesters. I'm just hoping for the best.
