Tidewater Community College 2013 hopefuls

  1. 2 Hello THIS IS A BRAND NEW THREAD for TCC's up and coming classes in January and March, 2013.

    I am starting this thread to help me get through the waiting game. I just finished my HESI yesterday, and turned in my application today. Now the LONG wait begins. I would like to get into the Jan or Mar cohorts. Does anyone know when they actually begin?

    I was surprised to have chemistry on the HESI--because it isn't required for the program. My scores were good though...all within the 92-100 range. It took me FOREVER to do the test. 223 minutes!

    How about everyone else? What did you think of the HESI?

    I took it too I did 98 on math and 96 on science but the English portion who got me scrued with 75 since English is my 3rd language, but I'm positive I have 4.00 GPA so hopefully that will be enough to them, by the way did you took all the preq or you still taking more classes ?

    I have a 4.0 in all of the required courses, but 20 years ago, I didn't care so much about school, and I have a lower cumulative gpa haunting me because of it. I graduated back in 97 with an engineering degree, and I went back to school last year for prenursing.

    My HESI was 94 Math, 98 Anatomy & Chemistry, 88 Biology, 100 English/Vocab etc.. but I noticed the overall class average was quite low at 82%.

    Maybe we will be in class together!

    Keep me posted.

    Hi CDSTCC---yes, I just got back from a trip and the first thing I did was check all the mail. Nothing as of today (October 7th). Maybe tomorrow!

    Who said it would be two months? I was thinking it would be in October.

    In the information session they said it would probably take a full two months for a response I HATE waiting!!!!! Did u hear something different?

    I heard they tell you by the end of October, but I have also heard that they never actually do that.
