that seems so far away! the deadline is 2/1. you'd think they'd be ready to go shortly after that! If you don't mind me asking what was your GPA and TEAS score?

I am really anxious to get the letter too. Either way, i just want to know. lol I'm guessing that with sooo many people applying it takes a while for them to review everyone's applications. I remember reading that everyone's major changed on degree work's first..I hope they didnt catch on redpanda...

My TEAS was 72 and GPA 3.65. I've heard that it doesn't matter what you get on the TEAS as long as you pass. If you still need to go to an information session that might be a good question to ask because I'm not sure if they changed it. They also look at more than just the TEAS and GPA. For example, they look at how may pre reqs you've taken, generally the more the better. They also tend to weigh the science classes like chem, bio, A&P, and micro higher than classes like English & Psych. I heard all this info at the last information session I went to back in 2010, not sure if any of this info is outdated. A lot of students in my class already had all of the pre reqa and other gen eds done before the start of the program, but there are some who still needed to a few classes. If you can get some in during the summer it's a big help.

If you guys have any other questions, please, ask away! I remember being in your shoes, and it helped a little to have some answers.

Oh one more thing, if you start calling the receptionist and asking about when the letters will be out, don't get your hopes up. If I remember, they told us at first it would be late Feb. That date kept getting pushed up a week or so, and they came a month later. I think they mean well, and try to make time to look at them, but they are all teaching right now and have crazy schedules. I know it sucks, but they'll come when the come, and in the meantime check degree works lol.

I have a 4.0 and got a 82 on my TEAS. I only have to do Micro, a math and a history, which i'm planning on doing this summer. I'm hoping it's soon because I need to plan things financially etc. I'm checking that degreeworks as a part time job lol Are you working as well during the program redpanda?

I work 20 hours a week, and try to do less on quiz weeks. I don't have any other outside obligations. I honestly don't know how some people do it with kids, working full time, etc. But somehow they manage. Everyone is different when it comes to how much extra they can do, but in general the professors don't recommend working more than 20 hours per week. Most people figured out by mid semester if they were working too much or not.

I'm not too sure. Did you get that postcard thing in the mail? It said to check off if you wanted to do a distance learning program for nursing or whatever it was? I think that they might have just updated it in their system on 1/18 when they got my postcard back. I hope they've started reviewing them! I'm so impatient! There's so much to plan for!

Yea, I think my audit was done when they posted my grade for the condensed CSS class that I took in January. I did get that postcard in the mail and I responded with fall river because I figured that with classes like that, I'd rather have a teacher who can explain it to me so if I don't understand something, I can ask questions right away. You're right, there is so much to plan for, especially if books are as expensive as I have heard. lol
