    Hi Everyone! I'm new to this forum. Is anyone applying to to the spring '13 ADN program? The closer the deadline gets the more anxious I become! I hope I have enough points to get in!!!
    When I was accepted for Spring 2011 I got my letter within four days. Don't know if they are still as fast as last year. I only have 153 points so I'm not holding my breath. Last time I had 161. The TEAS V cost me a few points. For those that get in the program be prepared to put all the time you have into school. They are great instructors but you will have to study and learn outside class as well. The questions that are on the test may come from outside the text books. You have to have an 80 at the end of each semester to pass. Out of my 72 that started about 20 remain. The program can, of course, be passed so just be ready to focus. Good luck to each one of us.

    Checked the mail today. I know it is too soon, but still... I have only 162 points and during my MAR review was encouraged that my scores looked fine. It was not recommended that I take the TEAS over, but after hearing 170's I am starting to wonder if I should have retaken the TEAS.

    Hello Treasures!
    I too checked the mailbox...knowing it was too soon but HOPING lol. At 162 I would think you are ok. That is still like 7ish points above the low for the last 2 semesters. I think some will have higher than my 171.3 and others a bit lower. My guess is the low will be 159....just for fun let's keep our minds occupied and guess highs and lows? lol We could also guess when the first letters will arrive! Ok so my guesses are HIGH 186...Low 159 and letters on October 8th...anyone want to play?

    GTCC vs FTCC

    have yall heard any good things or bad things about either?

    I'm getting pretty much the same info both ways.

    I've heard mostly the same. I just think FTCC is more popular but I think they both provide a quality education. I'd be happy with either school

    Hello everyone!
    From what I can see on NCLEX pass rates...GTCC 3 year average is 88%...FTCC 3 year average is 91%. For the current quarter FTCC is sitting at 98% 1st time pass rate and GTCC at 90%. I strongly believe ANY program gives back what you put into it. I have heard that Forsyth has state of the art equiptment and such. I do not know anyone who went to GTCC. I am SO ready to open my mailbox and see a BIG envelope from FTCC lol. Congrats on those accepted at GTCC. Prayers are with those who will have to decide which school to choose!
