Hi , 

I created this thread to share info tips etc for those applying to Cochran school of nursing Spring 2021 . I am currently at BMCC and with a good GPA but didn’t get in last semester to the nursing program so want to explore other options . Will attend the info session Monday if I get a link in time . 

Hey I am also in bmcc and I’m actually taking the Kaplan on the 21st for Cochran ! 

Hey I am also in bmcc and I’m actually taking the Kaplan on the 21st for Cochran ! 

hey guys I'm also applying for the program my date is the 28th for the Kaplan! so nervous LOL

I wish my exam was on the 28th LOL mines is in a week. how are you studying?

I literally asked her for another date because I wanted more time to study LOL, and feel like the days are flying by. she said we find out if we are accepted late November early December and that's a long waiting period ANXIETY LOL. I bought the secrets TEAS book off amazon I heard it was better than the actual Kaplan book and the TEAS official book. im trying to spread my days with different subjects so I don't overwhelm myself in one day. the math one is where my biggest downfall is. also is anyone aware of how they're doing it virtually?

So math is also my worst subject ! And btw I also asked her for another test date but I guess that’s not possible . On the 17th I will have a zoom meeting explaining everything including virtual Kaplan test . 

And In a way I think we have a good advantage on being first once tested !

I hope so LOL, im so nervous. when you find out how you are taking the exam can you please let us know as well. has anyone already taken the Kaplan or applied elsewhere?

Sure. I’m not applying anywhere else for now ! I’m just going to stick to Cochran next year if I don’t get in Cochran I will apply two 4 schools

Good luck on the Kaplans ! I am trying to set up a meeting with the admissions advisor as I am not sure my pre-Reqs will satisfy the requirements for Cochran . Wasn’t educated here for high school and I’m 52 credits in to my degree and I really don’t want to have to take Algebra GeneralBio so going to see what she says about my transcripts 

Where else are you all Applying  for nursing school ? I don’t Think  BMCC will have people sit the HESI this semester again And I don’t my GPA will be good enough again .

Hi I was inquiring about BMCC but the lady told me, the entrance GPA is a minimum of 3.4 and also you can't just apply, you need to be a student for a minimum of 1 semester and have to take there math 104 class

Hi everyone, 

This is my second time applying to Cochran. I was told I would be testing on the 16th virtually which has now changed to in person. I have yet to receive an invite or pay for the test and have been studying for the 16th date. I can't get a hold on H***** to ask and I'm starting to get worried. Has anyone been able to reach the school it seems impossible since the last try.

Last time I made my payment over the phone.  I have not received an official invite which is what I was told to wait for. This is all so upsetting.

Did anyone else take the Kaplan? How did it go now that I am hearing it was changed to in person? I wish you all well. I am reapplying and now just waiting a decision.

Hi 
I submitted an application and sent my transcripts to Cochran but I can’t get anyone on the phone and I sent an email but I got no response. Any advice?

I would try the admissions email if you are emailing one single person. That's what I did last time I applied and someone emailed me a few days later.
