    always have hope! someone emailed me the terre haute cut off numbers.

    lpn – 196.5 – 178.3
    rn – 217.1 – 193.0

    the lpn start score was higher than the cut off for the rn program......that means that people could have gotten into the rn program, but didn't apply. (i think)

    the campuses are so secretive about ranges. even if they change each semester, it's nice to have something to look at every now and then.

    i should also mention that the ranges are subject to change, as people decline their acceptance.

    Thanks for the feedback on the online courses! If I have to retake 102 this fall, I may go ahead and do it online. I am having some troubles figuring out what materials I should be focusing my time on for the tests/quizzes this Summer, perhaps doing online homework activities could alleviate that in the fall.

    Hi everyone!
    I am done with all prereq's with all A's so far and taking Micro at Indy campus in the fall along with dosage calculation online. I plan to apply to Indy, Greencastle and possibly Columbus in Sept for Jan 2010 start hopefully. I am going to retake the TEAS...only got a 79 on my first attempt so I gotta brush up on my science and math a little bit the next month and re-try. It's nice to have a place to meet others going through same stresses. Anyone taken Micro at Indy campus? I heard the tests are in essay form. I'm wandering if I should have signed up to take online instead.

    Hi crazylife2! I am signed up to take Micro online thru Terre Haute in the fall. I think I did hear that about Indy's micro with the tests being essays. Micro thru Terre Haute will have one day we have to drive there to do a lab day (on a Saturday I believe). I hope that class is okay, I'm kinda scared of it.

    Hi MistyMiss,

    Are you applying to the Program to start in Jan 2010?

    I have been contemplating doing the same thing!

    I called Columbus today & asked them if I retook one of my A&P classes in the fall, if they'd honor the new grade? They said they would not be able to since the deadline to Register is Sept 1 & the grades for Fall won't be out until December.

    They said if I took the class in the Spring & applied for the Fall program, they would pull up & honor a new grade. (since there's a summer semester in between).

    I don't know if all campuses are like that or not....I hate to see you spend the $ & not have it work out like you had hoped.

    Hiya and TY!

    Hopefully I will not have to retake it so that I can apply this September. It is my understanding that if pre-reqs are completed during the Fall 2009 semester, you can apply in April for the Fall 2010 program. Does that sound right?

    Yes you are correct MistyMiss. Are you taking 102 right now? I am taking it online right now. Man it's a lot of work since it's the summer. If I didn't have to take it this summer (I want to apply in Sept) then I wouldn't have done it. Oh well, I'm plugging along in it. . .

    Yes I am, "plugging along" describes it very well for the Lawrence campus summer session too! Lecture, homework, study.., Lecture, homework, study.., Lecture, homework, study, study, TEST! It goes so quickly and yet requires so much work When it is all said and done though, I am thinking we have made the right decision to take the crash summer course and get into the program in January.

    I think that Micro class in Terre Haute is gonna be one big AN reunion! I'm signed up for it too....

    What class are you in for fall? I'm in section H1G, CRN #24303. I'm also in online Chem 101 section 13B, CRN #25829 out ot S. Bend.
  11. by   BlindMouse3
    I'm in CRN: 24203 (Section H0G! lol) for Micro, and I'm also taking Online Chem in SB, but my CRN is 25831.

    I was pretty disappointed in the fact that I had to select a lot of fall classes totally at random. I love when they are on ratemyprofessors.com. lol

    Hello all! this is the first time I have posted on this site so hope all goes well. But for those of you attending Ivy Tech Indy or applying, I have some questions.
    First of all, some background...I am an LPN, got it at Ivy Tech Columbus. Started the transition there last summer, and HATED it. The instructors were mostly the same ones I had in LPN school but something had changed, and anyway maybe it wasn't the right time for me. I am wanting to give it a second try, but at the Indy campus.
    Anyone have any advice, such as how competitive it is, I have As and Bs in all my prereqs...should I retake the classes I have Bs in? I got right in to the Columbus transition, so do you think this will be as easy at the Indy campus? Anyone know where they do clinicals?
    Any and all information would be GREATLY appreciated!! thanks!:bowingpur

    Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me more about the aphy101 102 you are taking online, do you ever have to go to the school for labs, or tests. I am actually in Gary but the 8 week 101 is in Terra Haute and that would be a really far drive. Also is it true you have to dissect something?
