Forsyth Tech - ADN - Fall 2010

Hi everyone! Congratulations to those of you accepted for Fall 2010!!! I was wondering if there was anyone out there besides myself who had been accepted to Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston-Salem, NC for the Fall 2010 semester. If sooo, please reply.

Thanks!

Congrats! When did you get your letter? What was your rank? I'm hoping I at least made the alternates list but I guess i'll see!

I got my letter on March 17th. You should call and ask if you're tired of waiting. I don't know what my rank was but I had 159 points which was more than necessary I know.. How many points did you have? I think they accept those with 145 or more. Good luck and keep me updated!

Wow, that's pretty quick. I guess I will call. I know I would have heard something by now if I got in, I was just hoping i'd be an alternate. I had 143 points since I'm just now taking A&P :\ Thanks for replying!

Dixie, I was going to apply last semester but I lacked Anatomy. My advisor told me not to waste my time applying. She said Anatomy was important in showing that we could excel in this type of field. If you're having problems getting into Anatomy I would suggest you check out http://www.nvcc.edu . I couldn't get into anatomy at Forsyth Tech so I took it online through NVCC. You do all your tests locally through a proctor. It is a thousand a semester..so two thousand all together for A & P I and II.. but it's worth it in my opinion. It is way too hard to get into anatomy. If you have 143 points without Anatomy you're doing great :yeah:Keep up the good work..and get this Anatomy taken care of and you'll be in like Flynn. Let me know if you need anymore information about that class or if there's anything I can do.

I was in the same boat youre in last semester...and this semester I was accepted. You are probably better off this way because Anatomy is a hard class. You probably wouldn't want to take it on top of nursing classes.

Of course there's still the possibility that you got in...i'm just saying don't feel bad if you didn't. Good luck!!!!

Oh oops.. you said you're just now taking A & P as in you got in the class? If so, you'll definetly be in next semester...they just wanna see that grade.

I had 146 and did not get in the program.So I guess you needed more than that because I have not received an acceptance letter.:nurse:

hi tmgordon,

did you receive an alternate or rejection letter yet? i still haven't received anything!

I have not recieved anthing yet.I just know how many points I had and I haven't heard anything.how manypoints did you have ? :nurse:

is a 70.6 good enough for the teas at forsyth? what about each section? anyone know?

tm - I would definitely have thought you would have made at least alternate list with a 146. I know I didn't get in either because I had about a 143. I was still holding out hope because I knew some folks last semester who got in off alternate's with a 140 and such- but we would know that by now for sure. I'm taking A&P 1 now and 2 over the summer so i'm going to try again for spring. maybe i'll see you then!

courtney - i'm not going to say that a 70 isn't good enough because I don't know how many points you have from your other classes. I would say though, that it would be pretty hard with a 70. You need to score at least 40% in each section. I made an 80 on my teas and felt like I did pretty badly, and obviously didn't get in for fall. I would sign up for ACA-085 if i were you :) Good luck!

if i don't get in in the fall i will reapply in the spring

Hey mandataye I got in the fall and 2010!

ive got 40% on all parts but i am going to take it again. i also have all the non nursing courses finished.

tmgordon,

you will probably get in. I got my alternate's list letter today- so I may be joining you guys after all! I just hope some folks decide to drop lol.

Courtney,

How many points do you have? The letter I received today said they accepted 147-179 for the fall. Use this as your guide. 70 might work for you as long as you have both A&Ps! :]

Hey guys! Sorry i'm behind..

We had orientation yesterday and six people didn't show up. So already there are six alternates that are going to get a spot. There are a lot of requirements that have to be filled and i'm sure there will be people that for whatever reason won't get it done. If you received an alternate letter I definetly would remain hopeful.

Congrats BK!! :) What section are you in? I'm in 101 with Friday's off... but four days a week.

If you got a 70 on the teas I would take it over. 70 is passing but not competitive. I bought Kaplan's "Nursing Entrance Exam" book and it helped me quite a bit. Touch up on fractions, decimals etc.

Also, if you don't have Anatomy that's probably why you didn't get in. That's the one science course they look at to judge how successful they think you would be. There were only three people out of the 72 that had not taken anatomy and I believe they were high school students who were going straight into the program.

It took me two years to get here..and there were a lot of other people that were the same way..so don't give up. It is a long process.

Hope to see you guys in the Fall! Again, they're already droppin like flies..haha. Don't worry about it. Good luck!!!!

Thanks for replying Manda! I hope that orientation went well. I'm not sure how many alternate spots there are but I thought I remembered them saying 15. If so, i'm probably at the bottom of the barrel somewhere- so I am hoping some folks do drop for whatever reason. I've heard of people getting called three weeks before nursing school begins to fill a spot, but by then it seems like you'd be so far out of the loop that it'd be hard to catch up! Keep us updated girl :]

Yeah they said they've called people the week before class before. I will definetly keep you updated!!

I got my letter today I made the alternate list.I thought I had 146 points because I thought the tease test would round up but it did not so i only have 145.9 points.My letter said that they accepted people with 148-179 points.I was so close.I hope that some people decide not to go so that I can get in. I wonder how many people are on the alternate list.I called the admission office today and they said that they did not know. If anyone knows please post it.missdixie023 I hope that we both get in.I guess we can be positive beause we did not get a letter stating that we were not accepted.My friend just found outthat she got accepted in to GTCC program today CONGRATS Alicia:nurse:

Congrats tm :] I have a feeling you won't have a problem getting in. You are 3 points closer than I am, and i'm thinking I might be at the bottom of the barrel. BUT, Ms. ***** did say in the info session that they usually take a lot of their alternates, so I guess we will see. I think that she said they have 15 people on the alternate list. I'd be curious to know if anyone with a lower rank than me got an alternate letter. I'm going to call her monday and ask what position i'm in just out of curiosity. Let me know if you find out, and definitely keep me updated if they bump you in :] Good luck!!
