    Good luck! I have a phone interview later this week. If you don't mind coming back and sharing your experience after your interview, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Has anyone applied to the Banner preceptorship program for their final semester of school? If so, please share your experience. How long did it take to hear from a recruiter after submitting the application? What was the interview like? How did you prepare? Thank you!

    Recording Lectures?

    I record all of my lectures and listen to them while I'm studying at home, in the car, walking the dog, etc. My classes are typically four hours long, so I record the lectures in chunks, typically by chapter. As the professor pulls up the powerpoint for the next chapter, I start a new recording and title it with the class and chapter. It makes it so much easier to find what I'm looking for while I'm studying. I haven't had a professor say no yet, but I'd definitely make sure to ask permission before busting out the recorder.

    @sabbysabby & @rilslay, congrats to you both! Eeeek, I'm so nervous. @jmtravers3, I'll comment on here the moment I hear anything about Tucson. I'm checking every time my phone alerts me to new emails, hehehe.

    I broke down and called the nursing office last week. The person I spoke to said we should know by this Friday. Fingers crossed!

    @rilslay, thanks for clearing that up! That fits with what the advisor in Tucson told us in our information session.

    @miam0, I found this comment in the NAU Nursing Fall 2016 forum: "1) First, they look at just your PREREQUISITES GPA (not overall college GPA)..They base it off of a point system: 3.0-3.19=1 point 3.2-3.39=2 points 3.4-3.59=3 points 3.6-3.79=4 points 3.8-4.0=5 points 2) Next they look at your KAPLAN Scores.. and they weigh the points based on the averages for the application cycle..(Usually anything over a 90 gets you 5 points, but it depends on the cycle) I was told that you have to at least score a 65%-70% on the science portion to be considered. (But again, it depends what the average test scores were for your application cohort) 3) They look at how many of the prerequisite classes that you have in progress or completed. For example.. if you apply with all of the prerequisites complete you get the full points for that section which is 2 points I believe. 4) These are kind of like "bonus points": - If you are an NAU student with +30 credits you get an extra point +1 - If you have any 60 college credits completed with a 3.0 GPA or higher then you get an extra point too +1" The current admissions criteria is identical so it's probably still mostly accurate, but I can't say for sure. I was told by the advisor in Tucson that Kaplan scores are looked at before GPA, so that's a little contradictory to this post. It might also be something unique to Tucson? The person who posted this said she received the information directly from an advisor in Flagstaff. Anyway, I hope this helps!

    @rilslay, I wouldn't worry too much about having courses in progress. Your Kaplan/GPA are really good. The advisor in Tucson told me that someone was accepted last semester with 3 courses in progress. @Sabbysabby, is it 170 for the Flagstaff program only, or 170 total applications received across all campuses?
