MCG/CNL Fall 2011 applicants

Posted

Hello, I just wanted to start a thread for those who plan on applying to the CNL program at the Medical College of Georgia next year (Fall 2011).

Great Idea. I also intend to apply for fall 2011. Have you finished our prerequisites yet? I am still working on mine at the moment.

@ ayti, yes I am done with the prerequisites. I just need to take the GRE!

Hello I am also applying to program next year. I have taken my prerequisites and I'm preparing to take the MAT.

I'm also thinking about applying but I'll have two pre-req's in progress for Spring and one to complete over the Summer. Because of that, I wonder if I'll be competitive enough for the Athens campus?

Good Luck! I take the GRE the end of this month. I am very nervous!

I think the Athens location is the most competitive. I am not sure if they consider how many pre-req's you have left to complete. If you call *** she will answer all your questions. I have spoken to her several times about admissions questions.

Hi, for those of you that have completed their prerequisites, can anyone tell me what Chemistry they took for their prerequisite and which school? Thanks

I took Survey of Chemistry 1 and 2 at Georgia Perimeter College. The first Chemistry was like a general chemistry class. The second chemistry class was mostly organic chemistry. Again, you can always call or email **** at MCG (which becomes Georgia Health Sciences University on 1 Feb). She can make sure you are taking the correct chemistry.

Thanks @ sharzaejones. How did you find the chemistry classes? was it as challenging as A & P?

I am so anxious of the GRE because of the analogies and antonyms, the words are out of this world. How have you been preparing since you take your exam this month? Do you know if the MAT is more manageable? Are you applying to any other school apart from MCG?

I got an A in Chemistry 1 and 2 (including both labs). I thought A&P was harder than chemistry (that is only MY opinion). Yes, I am very nervous about taking the GRE. I took a prep-course through Kaplan and I have been studying vocabulary words daily. MCG takes your highest GRE score....if I dont do well on the 27th, I will register to take it again in December...and January (you can take it once per month). I do not know much about the MAT. A friend of mine took it last year and she didnt like it....I am also applying to the University of West Georgia. I still need to take the TEAS....I will probably apply to some other schools too...not sure which ones yet. When are you taking the GRE? Are you applying to other schools too?

Hi sharzaejones.For odd reason am just nervous about chemistry. I hope to do great in it when I take it next qtr. I plan to take the gre next month. I need to take Teas as well and I will probably apply to kennesaw state, ga highlands and chattahoochee tech for associates program. I just want to keep options open. So much to do!!!! Can't wait to finish all my prereqs

Hi Everyone.

I initially wanted to apply to MCG/CNL for Fall 2011, but postponed it to Fall 2012, and using 2011 to work on finances & getting some tuition fees ready. How is the GRE coming along? Did you guys take A&Pii and MicroBiology during the same quarter? & how r u preparing for the tuition, given how difficult it is for graduate students to get aid?

The GRE is coming along. I take it next week on the 27th. Im taking it early so I can retake it if my score isnt what I want it to be. I am still very nervous about taking it. I did not take A&P and microbiology together. I did take A&P2 and Chemistry 2 together. I was in the military and they will pay my tuition so im not really worried about that.

Thanks Sharzaejones, I'll most probably take A&PII, and Chem2 together as well. Wish you the best in your nursing career!

Hi sharzaejones. How did the gre exam go? Hope u did great?

It went okay...I am still going to take it again next month and in January. When are you taking it?

I need more time to study. I will take it next month. Do you know if the Feb 1st deadline to apply is set on stone? I have finals in 2weeks, so busy preparing at the moment.Since I still need to finish my prerequisites it just feels like I am really out of time! :-( Since you have taken it already, were the GRE words you had to learn helpful? Did you come across any of those words on exam?
