    I don't really think it's a matter of anyone bragging about getting a lower score. As someone that received a lower score than you, I don't really think it's fair to technically be shaming those that got into the program with a lower score, as everyone has worked equally as hard, regardless of the outcome. With a program with such competitive entry as JJC, every bit counts and is taken into consideration. When one applicant has an A in one of the prerequisites and the other applicant has a B, or a C, that can make all the difference and be the deciding factor - regardless of how each portion is weighted. There isn't much room for error, and even though the TEAS is weighted more than GPA, the GPA is still considered and makes an impact.

    Congratulations to everyone accepted! As a reference for those that were curious, I was accepted to the program with the following: ENG 101 (A), PSYC 101 (A), PSYC 215 (A), HEAL 109 (A) and am currently enrolled in BIO 250 and will complete BIO 251 over the summer. So 4/6 of the prereqs completed with a 4.0 GPA in those said courses. My TEAS score was 71.3. I'm going to go ahead and make a generalized assumption that with this round of admissions, it must have come down to emphasis on your GPA since I'm seeing those that had a much higher TEAS than I but where we differed was the GPA of the prerequisites. Good luck to everyone on your journey of becoming nurses!
