    vbnim,

    Did you call them already to let them know you're going on the 8th? I was wondering if you got anymore info than I did. What I want to know is how many people they mailed that letter to, if it was just the ones they are accepting or if they are planning on determining whose in from the test scores (which means there's tons of pressure to score really, really good, not just pass with a 67%). Any info is greatly appreciated!!!

    kr11,
    I have called over there a few times We're all in the same boat here, i guess. I confirmed that i will be taking the teas on june 8th and the first lady there said there were 41 people taking the test that day (i don't know if there are other scheduled dates) I asked if that meant I was accepted since i was scheduled for the teas and she told me that can't be determined until the scores come in from the teas. (vague huh?) The second lady i spoke to, i made up a dumb excuse to call again, she said the same thing that it couldn't be determined until the scores come in and i asked her if i would be taking the teas had i been an alternate and she said "not yet". I don't know what this all means but i do know that my friend, who applied as well, received an alternate letter the day before i received my teas test letter. I also asked the first lady whom i spoke to if my letter maybe got lost in the mail or something and she said "not everyone gets the same letters"
    You're probably in the same state as i have been for a week now, not knowing if we are accepted or what, but the way i see it, if we pass this test we are at worst case scenario, alternates right? They wouldn't pay for us to pay the teas test otherwise right?
    Are you studying? What have you found out?

    hi vbnim1 and kr11,

    i took it may 13 with lvn students who are trying to join the bridge program...there were i think 30-40 people in the room, im not quite sure cause i was busy being too anxious for the test ( i was in my own bubble).hehe.i was one of the last to finish the test....after they told me my score, the lady immediately gave me an acceptance letter and told me that im in for this upcoming fall..honestly, i dont know if its the same process for you guys taking it on the 8th, i hope so..... i know how hard and frustrating it can get to wait..been there.... (i applied a few times and was put on wait lists before i got invited for the teas exam.. so thats probably another factor as to why i got in for this fall besides passing the teas and just got lucky overall)..but i think being invited to take the test is a very very good sign that you guys are being considered for this fall (but pls keep in mind im not speaking for the school's behalf, just my opinion).. just study, study , and study.. and hope for the best... concentrate on ratio, percentage, reading charts/graphs.. um fractions... and know some stuff about earth science (rocks) and little about chem...just stay positive and hope to meet you guys this fall.. GOODLUCK!!! =) and CONGRATS TO BOTH OF YOU making it this far =)...

    That happened to me last semester and they told me to call the impacted students desk. For some reason my rejection came late :-(

    I actually got a call from them today, I guess when I RSVPed the lady never wrote my name down so they called to make sure I got the letter and am going on the 8th.

    I would call them tomorrow.

    Thanks so much! Congrats to you too! I'm so nervous for the test! Were you allowed to use a calculator? Was your score super high? My friend who is in the program said that as long as we pass the test we are in and that your letter would tell you if you were an alternate! I'm still not getting my hopes up until I have that acceptance letter in my hand! Thanks for all the info!

    thanks for the congrats! =)..
    ..no calculator allowed on the test... the test is timed approx 3 1/2 hrs long, but you can take it on your own pace..where you can decide when to start the next subject...

    goodluck again!! =D.

    dcalgrl, Thanks so much!! Did you join the bridge program then? I too can't wait to get the acceptance in hand!! I'm a bit worried about the chemistry side of the test, should i be?

    no unfortunately, im not an lvn.. im a "beginner"..no experience what so ever but volunteer... so im anticipating and excited of whats to come..(a little scared too..hehe)

    teas is ged equivalent.. so the chem is mostly basic questions about elements...and they dont ask that much about it... the science portion.. i guess would be best described as "anything goes" type of questions.. they look at your math and reading heavily though.. so concentrate on doing well on those the most..

    goodluck !!
