Lehman College Fall 2017 Admissions?

  1. Im going to be applying to Lehman's Generic BSN program for fall 2017 and I was wondering what my chances of getting accepted are. So far I have a 3.73 pre req gpa and in the process of taking microbiology and organic chemistry lab and lecture. I hope to get it to a 3.8 if I get A's for these 3 classes. As for my Hesi score, I got a 92 overall, 92 for Reading Comprehension, 94 for Math, 92 for A&P and 90 for Critical Thinking. If anyone who has previously been accepted could share their stats with me that would be great! Also, if you're applying for generic Fall 2017 as well you're welcome to share them too so we can see how competitive this year is! I've heard 3.5 is the cut off but I'm sure it depends on the year. Thanks everyone!

    Hey,

    I am considering Lehman College for ABSN (and Generic, as a second option) for the fall 2018. From what I heard and been told (by the admissions staff) your stats are very, very good! I am sure you have a great chance of getting accepted!!! Good luck!

    Btw, are you a current student at Lehman? If so, how is it? What time is your micro class (lecture and lab)?

    Hey FutureNurseInfo!
    Thanks so much for your feedback! I am currently a student there and from my experience I think Lehman is a good school. The professors I've taken have all been knowledgeable on the subject they're teaching and they're usually available for office hours and are willing to help if you have any questions.
    I take micro lecture and lab in the mornings(different days) beginning at 9:30am. The lecture lasts an hour and 40 minutes and the lab lasts 3 hours, however I believe they are offered during the afternoons as well. If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

    Hello! Based on your scores, I think your chance of getting in is very high.
    Just two questions: What did you use to study for the HESI? If you studied for the critical thinking part, what did you use? The critical thinking part of the HESI seems to be what messes a lot of students up.
    Thank you in advance and good luck.

    I'll be bookmarking this because I was supposed to apply for Fall 2017 but some things happened. Just want to see how my fellow peers did.

    Hey Amberrae!
    Thanks for your feedback! I hope they are! I'm mostly worried about maintaining my gpa this semester As for the Hesi, I used a couple of different resources. I used the Elsevier Hesi A2 review book mainly for the math and reading comprehension. I also bought the McGraw Hill's Hesi A2 3 practice tests book and did the practice tests for the math, reading and A&P sections. As for A&P, I mainly used the Cliffnotes A&P quick review book. I read through all of it while also taking notes. If something didn't make sense I would watch anatomygmc on youtube. She's a professor who posted her lectures on youtube. I highly recommend watching her videos, she makes everything so easy to understand! I also bought an app called PocketPrep Hesi A2, which has practice questions for every section of the exam except critical thinking. This app costs 12 dollars but I definitely think it was worth it. The practice questions are really similar to what is actually on the exam. As for Critical thinking, I didn't really study for it because I didn't know how. However, I did see one picture that stated the priorities for nurses which was really helpful to remember for some of the questions. I would say just try to analyze the situation from all perspectives, think about all the consequences for each choice given, try to think about which patient would be most harmed if you don't attend to them first and also keep in mind the scope of practice for a nurse. I hope I helped and good luck!!.

    Hi, SunriseC,

    Thanks for your feedback as well. Right now I am at Hunter, but it offers my few other pre-reqs at times that are not convenient for me, so I was thinking of transferring to Lehman to take those. Also, I know I have to a student there before I can apply its nursing program.

    Btw, how hard was the HESI? In any case, good luck with the rest of your application!

    I'm applying for this fall's accelerated program. Here are my scores:

    Pre-req gpa: 3.9 (I did my pre-reqs at Laguardia CC and Hunter)
    Hesi overall: 94%
    - math: 100% (the elsevier book was spot on for this section)
    - reading comp: 97%
    - a&p: 88%
    - critical thinking: 890

    I didn't study much for HESI. I did the practice math problems (know how to add/subtract/multiply/divide fractions and do proportions--I swear that was 90% of the test) from the Elsevier book and skimmed a cliffsnotes A&P book. I had no idea how to study for critical thinking either.

    Hello! I'm a few days late but I just wanted to thank you so much for such a thorough response. I've saved the photo and I've started studying from it already. Best of luck to you too!

    I just took my Hesi , and applying for the Generic BSN and so far my stats are
    Pre-req gpa : 3.7
    Hesi overall: 90
    Reading:84
    A&P: 88
    Math: 100
    Çritical thinking: 800

    Books I used: Hesi Admission Assessment Review(4th edition) ,Cliffnotes Anatomy and Physiology quick review, and 3 evolve Reach (Hesi) A2 practice Test

    I'm a little worried about the critical thinking because I asked the lady after the test and she said 800 was the cut-off for Critical thinking So I just made it

    What do you guys think?

    Oh okay I hope you're able to find convenient times then! I know lehman has offered some of the pre reqs mornings, afternoons and on the weekends. The Hesi wasn't as hard as I expected but I did study a month in advance, mostly for A&P because it's a lot of information. The math however, as long as you study from the Elsevier study guide, you'll be good to go! The reading comprehension wasn't difficult either, the passages were pretty short and the questions were usually straight forward. I would recommend you study a lot either way just to be safe!

    I saw in another post a user wrote that they got a 79 in the critical thinking section and they still got in last year, I've heard gpa is weighed more heavily than the Hesi score so I'm sure you'll be fine as long as you have 80 and above!
    By the way do you by any chance know what the General Education Requirements Form is or where I can get it? The nursing application says a copy of it needs to be submitted and I'm trying to get my application ready for the deadline. Thanks and good luck!

    Hey,

    you can obtain all these forms (and many others, like your clinical evaluation forms!!!) on the Lehman's nursing website. Once there, you will see to the left all the links to different subsections of the website that will contain all the forms you need.

    Hey, those are some really good stats! Sounds like you're on the road to acceptance, your Critical Thinking score alone should be enough to get you in haha. Here are my stats:

    Pre-req GPA: 4.0 (I am now taking Organic Chemistry, my last pre-req as well as HIN 268, which isnt calculated in pre-req GPA)
    Cumulative GPA: 4.0
    HESI Reading: 96
    HESI Math: 100
    HESI A&P: 100
    Critical Thinking: 870

    I also heard you need at least an 800 in critical thinking, but I am not sure. I hope I do well enough in organic chemistry and maintain a GPA above 3.85. Good luck everyone!
