Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I'm applying for the traditional program at Flagstaff and Yuma campus. My GPA is 3.70 on the nose and this will be my first time doing this stuff. I have a degree in Exercise Science so I may have taken a bit more classes than you younger guys applying to the same program, I've decided to study for the Kaplan by exclusively basically studying crash course videos. I will let you know how it goes and I just wanted to put my information out there for any future students. I take the Kaplan August 10th, so you guys will have an opportunity to see how this turns out for me and maybe you can do the same, cheers.

For further background, I'm really not that motivated by school or life as a whole, I'm one of -those- people. I am essentially your average run of the mill dude with no fantastic talents of any kind and I've essentially half assed studying in every way possible because I'm expecting failure. So if I do well, then you know it's not that bad. If I do piss poor, then you'll know it's decently difficult. It's essentially impossible to find any information about the science portion of the test online of course so again, I'm just watching crash course videos on A&P as refreshers. Most of you guys have better GPAs and studying habits so I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors. I will update on the 10th.

Hey! I just wanted to say good luck on the Kaplan. I'm applying for Flagstaff campus solely. I took the Kaplan about 2 weeks ago. I researached as much as I could concerning it and the information I found did not coincide with what was on the test. I'm not entirely sure but it seems like they changed the questions because I've read a zillion forums of people posting the actual questions from the tests. Just a hunch. I made an 88 overall. 93 in math, 91 in reading, 90 in writing and a 75 in science. My prerequisite GPA is a 3.92. I had questions in science that weren't just physiology so be wary!

isn't that just frustrating? the counselor told me to study A and P only. But then everyone said it's only Physiology and now obviously you've had a test that wasn't just physiology. It's just silly. When you say not just physiology did you have anatomy or was it like out of left field stuff like physics?

It really is! I felt so ready too. I had a few biology questions and some regarding taxonomy. No anatomy at all. I would recommend brushing up on biology basics if you aren't strong in it! But there are physiology questions that are common sense on there.

TAXONOMY? wow. curveball. thanks so much for the tip! I'll have to review that for sure it's been a few years. Overall though I think you did excellent honestly, I've heard of people a few years ago getting in with 85 overalls and up essentially. Guess it depends how everyone else does.

I hope so! I don't have the ability to move or attend any other campuses so Flagstaff is my only option. Like you said, depends on the applicant pool. I hope you do amazing on the test!

I've lived in Flag for a few years now too and I'd love to stay here. I just figure statistically there's probably less applicants to the Yuma campus and maybe somehow I could find someone to take my lease. And thank you so much for the kind words!

I love Flag so much. I believe you're right about Yuma. From what I've heard, Flag is the most competitive since it's main campus, unfortunately. If only they offered more spots per semester. Of course! Can't wait to hear how you did!

OKAY GUYS AUGUST 10TH UPDATE POST TEST

The test is NOT anatomy or physiology. It is very very general bios, we're talking BIO 181 stuff, I even had a chemistry question, taxonomy questions, prokaryotes, eukaryotes, brain functions, I studied only anatomy and physiology so I was screwed. A few of the questions are very odd and I actually still believe one had no correct answer. However, every other portion that's not the science is very straightforward. If you have questions try and DM me personally, I took this as a test and plan to apply to the accelerated program now that I know what to study.
