Golden West College ADN 2023

Hey!¬† It might be a little early to start this, given that applications aren't open yet, but I noticed that the multi-criteria points system was updated in September 2022.¬† I thought I remembered being in better shape when I looked at the old points system in past semesters ūüėÖ¬†so I was curious to hear from anyone else who is planning to apply and see where we all stand.¬†¬†

I haven't taken the TEAS yet, but not including my TEAS score I have 56 points so far, and I'll have a max of 81 depending on my score.

Hi! I was also bummed to find out that they changed the multi-criteria point system. I currently have 37 points but I'm hoping to meet the minimum work hours and planning on taking ENGL110-Critical thinking during intersession. That will bring me to 54 points pre TEAS, I'll have a max of 79 if I get the full point for the TEAS. 

I know from past app cycles that there were alternates with 79 points. But yeah I'm also wondering how the new point system affected others. My points definitely decreased haha. 

okay, I found the old criteria to compare https://www.goldenwestcollege.edu/Links/pdf/Updated-Multi-Criteria-Guidelines-June-2019.pdf

I would have had a max of 91 points and only needed a 70% on the TEAS to get 81 points.  I was looking at the thread for the the Spring 2022 application cycle, and I think 80-81 was probably the cut off.  

Hopefully everyone else will be in a similar boat and the cut off will be a little lower this cycle.  This change really came without enough warning for us to take some of those extra classes that are worth so many points now.  Definitely curious to hear from any other soon-to-be applicants!!

Yes! I would have had 88 points max. It's going to be interesting to see how things play out this cycle considering the new point system and that the app only opens once a year. Im hoping if I don't get in for Fall 2023 that I can at least make it for Spring 2024. Im applying to other schools but they're much further away.
