    I applied to summer2013 and I just checked my pipeline and my major changed to RN from pre-RN and said my admitting term for program would b summer... I have read that if your pipeline changes that it means you were accepted is that true? Bc they havent started calling yet and prob won't till next week.. Just curious if that happened for y'all

    Right at 170 i know thats horrible but i heard it's easier to get into summer semester that the.cutoff isnt as high i applied in the fall and didnt get in but my pipeline never changed, like it has now, did u apply? How many points did u have? I might have had a few more points if they took one of my high school a's instead of my b from college

    I had 166 I know its low but I also heard they don't have many apply in the summer and the cutoff is lower the people i've talked to all have around 170's and 160's or a little lower. I was told they would take highschool grades from Biology, algebra and chemistry. How can you tell if it's changed on the pipeline.

    I hear nights and weekend are awesome at Shelby but 1st semester at the Shelby day program sucks. Over half my class is failing Fundamentals and there have been no A's on any Fundamentals tests. To say it's stressful is an understatement. Supposedly the final is easy but I'll believe it when I see it. 75% and above is what's passing and right now I have a 72%. Only 5 weeks to go our I'd probably give up. Oh the calculations test for clinicals is easy but some of the calculations tests for pharm are rather difficult. Health Assessment is 99% self-study. We are told to watch videos, see a 30-40 minute demonstration and then practice on our own. This has been nothing like I thought it would be. I'd love to hear how 1st semester is at the Jefferson campus.

    This semester is almost over & without a doubt I know I'll be going on to 2nd semester. It has been VERY hard but I have studied my @ss off and have a B in Fund and an A in Health Assessment & Pharm Does anyone know about 2nd semester? How many days a week will we have clinicals and where? I'm so excited

    Would any of you recommend taking Algebra again if I got a C in it? I plan on applying next Summer.

    Yes. Retake your math class. It is worth a lot of points in the scoring system and you get zero points for a C. I haven't talked to anyone in the program (I'm about to start 3rd semester) who got in with a C in math. Not trying to discourage you but trying to be realistic.
