    Before taking the test, all counselors and such said that you need to get at least 50% correct in all categories to be entered into the program...I assume that that is the middle column only because they didn't say that you need to get into the 50th percentile as the 3rd column is the percentile column for each section... You did best in Verbal and usually, this is where folks get their lowest score.

    Were there lots of people testing when you took the test? There were three people (including me) on the date that i tested.

    When I took the test it was about 25 people. My computer froze 3 times. I had to use 3 different computers

    There was a guy taking the test his computer was frozen the whole time, he was really ****** I felt so bad. He was close to crying but I felt his pain...Wow on 3 had a full room but no one discussed it after when I asked one guy he ran away lol idk what was wrong with him do you think you did

    Hopefully, i did well enough....i'm hoping.

    My percentile scores (last column) are:

    Verbal 83, Math 98 & Science 96 ...I also made it over the 50% mark in the 2nd column. Hopefully, we'll be starting the program together!

    Well with your scores you def got in

    Wow, Congrats on getting accepted into Rutgers!

    You are pretty far along already, it sounds like you have a backup plan though. The nursing program would extend your stay in Essex...which are you most passionate about?

    Either way, i wish you all the best of luck!

    I realllllly want to do nursing. The only problem is Rutgers isn't taking transfer nursing students this year so I'd have to have 24 credits from Rutgers in order to transfer into their nursing program as a Rutgers student so that's the route I will have to take if I don't get into the program at Essex.

    At least you have a back up plan Miracle because i dont have one. My only plan at the moment is to get into the program and finish it as an RN. If by chance i am not accepted, i would be devestated and but i'd have to move on. You are already prepared for anything, which is excellent.

    I truly do believe that the 50% is based on the middle column though. It might also depend on how you scored against the other applicants too though. I think you might be fine....Well unfortunately have to wait though.

    Idk, I think its last last column especially if its Percentiles based on others that have taken the test and entered similar nursing programs. You are definitely going to get in without a doubt. The only thing I'm worried about is the Math section last column. If its the middle then I'll be super happy but I doubt it since that's only based on the number of questions answered correctly, and I know Essex goes by the percentile.
