    Yes, they replace with the highest grade. The lower grade doesn't show and isn't calculated into program GPA. Good luck!

    Hello Everyone!
    I have been watching this site for months and figured it was about time for me to actually start posting! I am currently finishing up my pre-requisites at GTC, will be taking SNHP 3000 and NURS 2010 at GSU next semester and will be applying for the Spring 2014 ACE program (I've got some time but I'm still freaking out about getting in!). I am also taking the TEAS next weekend at Mercer for the first time. I'm taking it early to give myself some extra time to retake it just in case.

    - I had this same question and asked the nursing department. This is the response I received:

    "If you decide to retake that exact same course again then GSU uses the last attempt at the course, not the highest grade. However if you decide to retake any of your sciences, the committee will take the 1stand 2nd attempt only and average them ."

    I hope this helps! Good luck everyone!

    What's everyone's stats?

    Now that it's been 2 weeks my daily mailbox frenzy has begun! Hoping to find out before senior registration on the 24th!

    I don't if anyone else does this, but you can check your application status online to see what it says. I have been checking neurotically for weeks now and it still says "complete-ready for review"; however, I found it highly suspect when all the sudden that system said that the application status check would be down from Oct. 19-Oct 22. Does this mean they are making decisions????

    Also, ssferrans, it was nice to meet you and put a face to a name, see you on Thursday!

    It will continue to say that even after you receive a decision. It's really just for making sure all of your application was received... Don't bother checking it!

    Really!!! Well thanks for the info, but knowing me... I will probably still check it lol

    Nice meeting you too jenbrewington I can't take much more waiting...hoping we all hear soon. Does anyone know if any letters have been sent out?

    From everyone I have talked to, nobody has received anything... the waiting is killing me as well! Hope they put us out of our misery soon. It has to be soon seeing as registration started this week for Spring classes!

    Nobody I know has received anything either and there are no registrations in the system for Nurs 2040 or 2060. I registered for the one class I could. Now really hoping I get in so I don't have to drop it! By the way, I check my online application status too even though I know it's not going to change

    Good, I am happy to know that I am not the only one that is being irrational about all this. I feel like I am stalking my poor mail lady! I wait for the sound of the truck to come down the street and then I run to the mail box only to be disappointed

    Welcome to the wait svictor1!
