    have any of you taken the western suffolk boces test? It's called TEAS. Im nervous about it because in addition to the veeb test it has a science portion. Anyway, if someone could get back to me and let me know how the two tests were in comparison i would GREATLY appreciate it thanks in advance

    Hello everyone,
    First I'd like to say I liked reading your posts, they were informative and that you are a supportive bunch.
    Second, I have read a lot of posts about the bridge program and they have confused me. I recieved a letter today saying that I passed the entrance exam, but they have put a "hold" on offering additional seats. I guess I'm on a wait list. So I'm wondering, from what I've read here it seems that they are holding seats for those in the bridge program;
    I don't know what to make of this. Would I have a better chance getting in if I had not passed?
    What does this "hold" mean for those who passed? Does that mean they're put on a waiting list? :thnkg:
    Please help.

    :icon_roll Honestly, I wish I knew the answers to your questions. It does seem alittle odd that they would put someone who passed the entrance exam on the waiting list, yet still take money from people for the bridge program??? I mean NO disrespect for those who did not pass, and are attempting the bridge program, it just seems alittle odd. Wouldnt they want the people who passed the exam on the first try to attend their school? I just dont get it. It seems like a money-making scheme to me, but again, I really dont have a clue why they do things the way they do. Good luck to all on the waiting list and in the bridge program. Hopefully everything will fall into place and we will all be classmates in September!:redpinkhe

    Geo299 while you guys were impatiently waiting for your results I was totally rooting for ny-mom, nursegurl, trini, malenurse amongst many others.I hope many others named and other wise who did not pass still do well in the bridge and make it in the program for sept . I do not have the "crabs in a barrel syndrome". Most of us are not fresh out of high school and for the benefit of our society, the greater good, and our own personnal or family reasons need to succeed. From my observations, most of us here are adults, reguardless of age.
    If paying for the bridge increased my chances of getting in I would pay ( in a heart beat). Thanks nursegurl for your honest reply and sorry geo if I have offended you. Since I have grown to admire many who have not passed I will bite my tongue and leave it at that geo, thanks for you support.
