Hi, I did not see a post for Fall 2020 so I decided to start one to see if anyone was applying and allow us a way to connect if so.

Hello guys! I am applying for Fall 2020. I got a 89% on the HESI and have a 3.2 GPA. I may be retaking the HESI one more time to get a bit higher than 90%. how did everyone else do?

I haven't taken the HESI yet. I was scheduled but due to testing center closing I missed out. Hopefully it will open up before the deadline.

Yeah! The school told me to call them

on Monday to get updates on the HESI. I think they may cancel it and probably ask to write an essay. So they’re probably will go with the GPA and Essay

I hope they go with GPA and an essay! I'm applying too and can't take the HESI with the CORONA situation.

Is this a career or a degree switch for anyone else?

Career switch for me.

So if you check the page. It says applications are due on same deadline still. They said to apply with a HESI score if you have taken it and if you haven’t then to apply still but you will need to eventually take it. It says it’ll take longer to know our letter of acceptance because of this.

Honestly to me,

The virus has reassured me that medicine is my passion. It has strengthened me to follow my healthcare path.

Hey Everybody

I applied for the Fall 2020 cohort. I already taken my HESI. Don't worry if you did not take the exam as of yet. They are going to work with individuals who apply on time.

hi girl! CONGRATS on applying! what were your scores for each section? I'm nervous I'm not competitive enough

I scored a 96% overall. High 90's in each subject (I studied for months) I wouldn't worry about your score. I know several students who were accepted last semester one who scored an 83. I actually went to the information session earlier this year and she suggested for students to score at least an 80 to be competitive. Good luck to all of us!

Oh I hope they go with GPA & Essay but sadly I dont think they will. I will say though it's cutting it pretty close though to when we would normally start school which is roughly 2nd week of August & that's right around the corner.

Has anyone heard any more updates? I keep checking my email and the reynolds webpage for updates but nothing yet.

Although I have already taken the exam, I'm still concerned about any delays that we may encounter regarding acceptance/denials. The semester starts in August and we have to do so much before starting physicals, immunizations, CPR, background checks, purchasing books. I really hope we find out in early July.

I've been studying for months for the HESI. I've been told the anatomy is not that bad but then others say it was brutal. I dont know if the test is random for everyone or if they ask the same questions but I'm just at a loss for what to study. I take mine on Friday.

One girl told me she got a question regarding food & atleast 6 biology questions regarding "kingdom, phylum, species" etc, hetero/homozygous stuff & was mad because she failed the anatomy portion with a 72. She never got a single question regarding hormones or bones.

That kind of scares me because I haven't looked at any of that biology stuff for years. I've just focused on the anatomy/physiology. I've done pocket prep, khan academy & quizlet. I hope thats enough.

I think the questions are random. I didn't have any biology type questions. If you tooK A&P 1 & 2 you should be fine. Good luck!
