I think it totally depends on the program. In my area different schools do things differently. One school I looked at just added people to a wait list and you got in when there was an opening (LPN program has a 3 year wait list and RN program has a 3-5 year wait list). My GPA is 3.5, which I am not sure is good enough to get into the program I applied to. They go off of a points system by multiplying your GPA by 10, adding your TEAS score divided by 10, and giving you extra credit points for A&P 1 and 2 (2 points each). I don't have A&P at all yet (am taking 1 this quarter), so my points add up to about 44 points. They told me the cut off last admission was 46. I guess you never know who will apply each time and what they scored, but I am not holding my breath. I was 1 stinkin point away from an A in Chem AND Algebra. I was so disgusted, but what can you do. I did fairly well on the TEAS test (89.4% version 4), but even with that I don't think it will be enough! I know it is so disappointing sometimes. My husband tells me all of the time "you did your best, so don't worry about it." I am going to keep moving forward and hope that it is enough. If not, I will apply again in Spring! By then I will have A&P so I will get those extra points and hopefully get in. Good luck to you! Hope you find somewhere that works for you!
