Bellevue College 2012 hopefuls - page 5

Hello everyone, I have just applied to Bellevue College for Fall 2012/Winter 2013 and I just want to hear from anyone who has also applied there. What are your TEAS scores? Do you guys know when... Read More

    Hi everyone. I applied to BC as well. My TEAS score was 87.4%, hope it's high enough!

    So far, it sounds like all of us would have made it in last year. (I think the lowest score they took was about 85%.) I'm fairly certain we'll all make it in this year.

    So far, I've only applied to Bellevue. I took all my prereqs there and really enjoyed the profs in the science department. I'm hoping the profs in the nursing department are just as fun.

    Yes, but didn't they accept both TEAS 4 and TEAS 5 versions last year? I am not sure what the lowest score will be for acceptance because we did take a harder version of the TEAS test this year and this should affect the scores of the pool of accepted students.

    From what I understand, they didn't go by the number score, they went by percentile, etc. They had some sort of formula to figure out what a score on TEAS 4 would have been on TEAS 5. I think someone asked about this at an info session, but I'm not certain. Anyway, I think the lower number scores were the version 5.

    You should check out the thread for 2011 hopefuls. They went really in depth about this because it affected them more directly. I think I remember reading that they essentially added 5 points to the version 5 scores, though the formula was probably more complicated than that.

    I can't believe we have to wait a whole month before we find out whether or not we got in! It's torture. Fingers crossed for all of us.

    Do they look at your GPA at all? From what I am reading above it sounds like only the GPA. I will be really bummed if we don't hear until May.

    Meant to say only the Teas test!

    Hey Cyndy
    The GPA is only taken into account really if you are tied for the last spot. (That is unless the grades are under the minimum then the grades will make the applicant disqualified.)

    What TEAS score and GPA did you have Cyndy?
  11. by   downton
    They don't take GPA into account, unless there is a tie. A lot of the profs didn't agree with only using the TEAS score.

    I had a few profs that thought there should also be letters of recommendation. One thought it should only be based on A & P. You know who I am talking about if you had him!

    Thanks for your answers and clarifying. Really makes me wonder why it takes them so long.

    They still have to make sure all our other documents are there and that we are qualified. Plus the magnitude of applications probably affects the time it takes. But I do agree that it seems like forever to hear back.
