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.
