Hello Everyone,

Today we took the Kaplan Entrance Exam and I thought it would nice for us to share feedback and get to know each other as we wait for a phone call.

I found the reading and the math sections to be fairly easy while the writing section was confusing. Science wasn't easy but more manageable.

I scored 71% with 3.7 GPA for pre-req. It's on the low side but still hopeful :happy:

Hey congrats on getting this far. Mr. Sierra showed me the spreadsheet with applicants last semester. A few students had 4.0s of course, but students also matriculated with 3.5s and 3.6s. I think you'll be fine with your grades. 3.7 is a strong GPA and the Kaplan score is decent. Many students have difficulty with the writing portion of the test so I wouldn't worry if I were you. Good luck, DONT STRESS, and keep us posted.

Thank you for your kind words. :) My overall is 4.0 but I am not sure if it factors in. I heard Mr.Sierra looks at the nursing related courses ( Micro, psych 240, etc). My friend took the exam last year and did pretty well but was not accepted into the program due to the fact that she failed Micro that same semester; which is probably why he calls a month later when the grades are posted.

Good luck to all of you! Scores of 70% for Kaplan are pretty low, Mr Sierra is looking for 80s and up. But a good GPA, like most of you have will definitely help. I had a high Kaplan score but a 3.2 GPA. The the phone call that you get from mr. Sierra is so random! And it's not at the time he says he's going to call! You just kind of have to check your voicemail every day and call the nursing department to find out when they call you and start checking two weeks before and two weeks after. He called me on a Friday evening at 5 p.m. and now I just finished semester 1 of nursing school! If any of you guys make it in, I will be speaking to the evening students about the importance of buying your textbooks as soon as possible and starting the reading immediately . immediately. Immediately. This was such a tough semester for me. For those of you who get in, you will learn that a grade of C is what you can expect, even if you try really hard and even if you have a really good GPA.. And it is understood in the nursing world that c means continue!
