    I applied for the next cohort. Can you please tell me your experience teas score and GPA??
  6. by   Jaide06
    My teas score was a 74% and my gpa is a 3.6. I have heard that in cali the Teas scores need to be much higher, it's more competitive there than here in Houston

    I will try! So far so good, they are very friendly and seem to want to help me do well. During the application process an entrance counselor schedules calls (around every other week or so) with you to make sure youre meeting any deadlines, and staying on track. Your counselor also has a say in your admission (although I dont know how much) so be kind to them. And if you miss scheduled calls do your best to reschedule, dont go MIA. They want to work with you so communicate with them. Once you're admitted, try not to miss any scheduled calls, they have a lot of information to give you, and the timeline is not super tight, but it can get tight if you neglect to keep up. The great thing is that they give you a lot of information but most of it will be reiterated in future calls, so you never need to panic if you feel overwhelmed (I havent felt overwhelmed, but see the potential for it). And if you take notes on your calls and review them, usually it makes sense, or you can ask for clarification. My counselor has been very good about communication. Even if she has told me something before she understands that it's all new to me, and is so friendly about clarifying. TIP: ALWAYS TAKE NOTES DURING YOUR PHONE CALLS!! And keep your notes together!

    Sure! I am an EMT, almost 2 years now and was a Scribe before that, but I dont think super extensive experience is required. Got an 89.6 TEAS and the GPA they calculated for my app was 3.7 I think... or btwn 3.5-3.7. The thing about the GPA is that they calculate your GPA independently of your undergrad, and only use the science pre-reqs (I think...dont quote me on this). I think its calculated using Anatomy, Physiology and Microbiology only, but you still have to complete all the pre-reqs. But I would clarify that with them when, or before, you apply.
