@JenSande  Hey, i spoke to her today and she said something like 160-170 applications were received, they only accept based on point system. She mentioned only 40 spots are available for the top scoring, but she couldnt tell me the average score received. My kaplan score was 81% overall with 91% on the Reading, 96% on Math, 48% on writing, and 85% on Science. she sent me a scoring rubric and based on that i have 32.5 points out of 44 😫😓😭 which i feel is not competitive for the program. If i scored in the 90s on the Kaplan overall score maybe i wouldve had a shot. what did you score?  has Becky told you anything new?

@janelane213 I would not worry about your score. From everything I’ve found an 81% overall is a great score. Seems anything in the upper 70’s should be good and 90’s are uncommon. I scored a 78 overall so hope this is true! I do remember applying for my LPN program and thinking my test scores were terrible and then finding out that I was well above the national average. I think the Kaplan May be the same.

Can you pm me a copy of the rubric? I didn’t ask for one and I hate to bother Becky again. Curious how points are awarded.

@janelane213 I scored a 78 overall. My gut reaction was panic, but again, from everything I’ve read upper 70’s are usually consider good. I can’t promise that holds true at Hutch, but it resembles my experience with the entrance exam for my LPN program.

@janelane213 I have no idea what the average Kaplan score for Hutch is. I just know everything I’ve found online says upper 70’s is considered solid. Also, considering the cutoff is 69 that seems reasonable, but again, this is all speculation.

I think I heard somewhere that notifications normally come out late October, but I’m not 100% on that. I am sure we’ll have a wait though.
