    Dear Sheri,
    Hi, I am see that you are actively attending MSON, I applied and just got my letter telling me I was not recommended for acceptance. I am really upset and wondered if you can give me some advice. My high school GPA was 2.0 and that detracted a point or so, but college of 2 years GPA is 3.95 and I have completed AP I and psy 241 and math with BS and am now taking AP II and micro and hope to finish with an A in both. Here is my question: on my TEAS I scored a 62 in science a 90 in math 88 in reading and 47 in the other. overall I got a 75.3, I was told this was an average score. I am prepared to take the TEAS again and study the way you suggested but I am curious do you feel it is my low teas score or something else. What is my best shot at this. I too am an older student, 35 and just now trying to get a career, I have a CNA job in the ED dept and will keep working and taking varous classes, while waiting till april to retake my TEAS, that is the earlies I can retake them.

    Down and out, any advice would be great, ps I hope you doing well and enjoying MSON

    Hi CNALeslie,

    I'm sorry to hear you were not accepted this round. Try not to give up hope though! I know so many people, even people like you already working in health care, that have had to apply 2-3 times, especially with these ADN programs. ADN's have larger applicant pools than BSN's and makes them more competitive.

    I did not know decisions were already being mailed out. Can you tell me when you submitted your app, completed with TEAS and all transcripts?

    I haven't heard anything yet and this is one of my main picks for schools, I'm so so so nervous!!

    Thank you!

    hey leslie... that is so thoughtful of you to say, it must have worked b/c I got my acceptance yesterday! i was trying to be patient but i broke down this week and it was just right around the corner. still can't believe it. thank you so much for replying so quickly.

    I'm truly sorry you did not get in this round. i wish all these programs had more seats available, that really seems to be the biggest problem. i don't know exactly how their point system works and what i got but i had similar stats to yours, except pretty good TEAS score which i think was the biggest factor. many people end up taking TEAS twice, i didn't have time for it but lucked out i guess.
