CONGRATS!!!!
2. ## National University SD Cohort 59 July19

We don't find out what our essay score is, you just find out whether you were accepted or not (but i would assume you can ask after u get accepted). From what I have heard they do whole numbers, one person could grade you a 4 and another a 5, and your essay score would be 4.5, but I am not 100% sure on that. total score: TEAS 40%: (0.TEAS score) *40 ex: 94.4 TEAS = (0.944*40) = 37.76 points GPA 40%: 4.0 would be 40 points, 3.9 = 39 points. 3.65, = 36.5 points etc Essay: 20% We don't know this, but you can guess and play with the numbers, by multiplying your guess score divided by 5 (1/5, 2/5,3/5,4/5 or 5/5), by 20! ex: 3/5 = 0.6 0.6*20 = 12 points So in this situation, add up all the points: (37.76 + 40 + 12) = 89.76 points (ish) If this is wrong someone correct me ASAP!! pleasE!!

could someone email and see how many applicants are still going through with this cohort? I bet we've come down a few from 200

Positive thoughts coming your way!! I can almost promise you did better than that Good luck!!

I would focus on the essay. I fell into the same mindset trying to study for the teas and make it better, when really all it would do is give you one or 2 points extra. I wish I had prepped for the essay better, and I really believe that I might have sunk my chances even with the GPA and TEAS I have. I believe on other cohort pages there is a list of essay topics, and those are what we got! Nothing weird.... but getting a full 20 points would do a lot more for you than an extra 1 or 2 on the TEAS side. GOOD LUCK!

I think you're in a really good position for this cohort! I know that doesn't ease the worry but I really mean it! Your TEAS and GPA alone give you 74.48 points, which is awesome! Can you give an honest judgement of what you think your essay would score out of 5? (Be brutally honest, I don't think i did better than a 3/5 lol) They have two people read it and give a score, and then the two scores are averaged. Then that score is equated to x/20 points and added to your 74.48. Play with the numbers, i bet you'll find it pretty motivating!

9. ## National University SD Cohort 59 July19

I know, this cohort is so quiet!!! But to answer your question, there are just under 200 applicants this time around. Not bad! I've heard of cohorts having 300!!! I am looking forward to having this process over with, and counting down the days until its essay and TEAS time! I'm on the 20th. Anyone else?

13. ## Anatomy and Physiology 1 Tips?

HI! It's so great that you want to get a head start on AP! You definitely do not need it, but I admire the enthusiasm and dedication. I would highly rec getting this book: The Human Body concepts of anatomy and physiology by Bruce Wingerd, 3rd ed. It was \$7 on amazon, and a total steal. Save the hefty book for when you've actually started so you know which one your professor wants. I bought this book about midway thru AP 2 and wish i had gotten it for AP 1. Its a respectively dumbed down version of the Tortora textbook (which I would bet is the one your teacher would want). It's actually easy to read and written in a logical way. buy this book and rent your class one! good luck!
