    Hello! I am considering applying. I haven't taken the exam yet though. Is it hard? I've taken the HESI before, but Carrington requires Kaplan right?

    Hi! Yes it is the Kaplan now. It consists of reading comprehension, math, and writing (not actual writing but fixing sentences, identifying grammar and spelling errors). The last day to take the entrance exam is next Thursday and I believe the background check and drug test is due by then. Not sure if there is enough time for you to apply for January start but they start classes in May also. Good luck!!

    So I just went to the information session and they pushed out the date until 10/27 because so many people are taking the Kaplan. I guess that means there will be a lot of people applying this round I'm taking the exam on the 26th! Hopefully I get something decent. She said to shoot for the high 80's.

    Oh wow! I knew there were quite a few people applying but didn't anticipate that! Good luck on your Kaplan!

    I took my Kaplan! Do you know how they calculate the final score? I know my scores for each individual section, but don't know how they figure the final score.

    I think they take the average of how everyone places on the Kaplan. Couldn't tell you for sure how they calculate the scores. You will get a phone call from the admissions director to go over your scores and they will be placing calls for the day students next week and for the nights the next few weeks after that. Fingers crossed! How do you think you did?

    Oh my gosh that's so soon! Are you applying for days or nights? I think I did well but i guess that depends on how everyone else did. I got 100% on the math and missed one in the reading, but I missed a few on the writing section. That part was pretty difficult!

    I applied for The January 2018 semester too. This wait for an acceptance call is killing me!! Has anyone heard anything yet?

    I just called because I hadn't heard yet what my my Kaplan score was. When I spoke with her she said they would be calling at the end of this week and through the next two weeks to offer seats for January.

    Glad some one called.

    How was your score? Do you think you made the cut?

    I got a 288/300! I got 100% on the math which I guess translated to 110% for the Kaplan. I still don't understand how they do their calculations. I hope that is enough to get in. How did you do?

    My kaplan was 97%. I got 100% on the math too, raw score. I don't really get how the calculations work for scoring either. I assumed it was a percentile ranking against all applicants, guess that one was wrong if you got an adjusted 110% on the math.
