@mavwagg and @MandM1305 Both of y'alls stats look great, especially your GPA's! Good luck to both of you! MandM, I think you turn it in to Cathleen in the Health Sciences building. I think her office is on the 3rd floor (don't quote me on that). I just turned mine in at the information session that I went to so I didn't have to make another trip out there.
@49erintx @mandm1305 here's to being classmates this spring! í ¼í½¾
No joke! I found out at the last minute that the PSB test had more slots opened, because when I initially looked into Collin, they said there would be no more PSB tests! This was the first section I took and I skipped around trying to answer as many questions as I really didn't have time to study. So I didn't do too well in the AA. I still applied anyway, but I don't think I'll fare too well!!
I'd be interested in discussing with you if I get in. I'll follow up with you, once I know for sure.

I would not buy books for the whole program in bulk. It is likely they will change by the time you get to those classes.
The PSB is graded on a percentile. This means the test compares how you score to other students who take the test and assign you a percentage based on that. It is far more important to get the questions you do answer correct than it is to try and answer every question. Unanswered questions do not figure into the calculation Those who are taking this test for the first time or took it and didn't score as they hoped and want to take it again should keep this in mind. On this kind of test it is literally the worst strategy to fill in blanks willy-nilly and can really tank your score. I always get alarmed when I see people advising this tactic.
You are only scored on the things you finish and the amount you finish is compared to the average amount finished by all other people who have taken the test in their database and a score calculated for that. Therefore if you answer lots of questions but answer lots of them incorrectly, you score lower than those who didn't answer near as many questions as you but got the majority of them right. As an example..... if you get an 85% on the reading section it does not mean you got 85% of your answers correct in the reading second. It means you scored higher than 85% of all the others in the database who took that same exam, considering how many questions you answered and how many of those answers were correct.
I hope this helps.
Hi everyone! Finishing up my application for Spring 2018. I sooooo badly hope to get in! Here are my stats:
Prereq GPA: 4.0 (micro is "in progress" so I hope that doesn't hurt me too bad)
Coreq GPA: 3.5
PSB: AA (46) SP (88) RC (92) NS (95) VAI (88)
AA section killed me lol definitely over thought it and panicked. I do have a previous bachelors degree so I hope that helps me. Good luck to all of you!
I think AA counts as its own section, right?
My stats are as follows:
Prereq GPA: 4.0 (Micro in progress)
Coreq GPA: 4.0 (Although I have to take two of them during the program because of the G.I Bill)
Overall GPA: 4.0
PSB Scores: (AA-85) (SP-92) (RC-92) (NS-97) (VA-94) - I scored under 40% on math, but scored really high on the other two sections in AA. I should have answered faster :/

Lindseyh - Looks competitive! I think your chances are very good.
@JMoore90 Yes AA aptitude is a section which includes verbal, nonverbal, and math, and you made well above the 40% in that section so your stats are looking very competitive!
