Hi mkpatl.... I wasn't at the scheduled orientation b/c of a prior surgery I had scheduled 6 months ago for Dec 9.... I would've been in bad shape for the 12/11 orientation so I registered early. I think we all have the same schedule that you mentioned. I am excited to start and nervous too! ;-)
Hlee--- Hi, my overall GPA is 3.2 (I have a prior Bachelors degree in Journalism and when I was a freshman 8 years ago I had a couple bad grades that still haunt my overall GPA) My nursing GPA is a 3.85 (classes only counting towards my nursing degree).
The Kaplan I took in Feb during my 1st semester of A&P I (no biology or microbio ever taken in my college life) needless to say I got a 40 in the science section but 98 or 100 in the 3 other sections (math, grammar and reading). I would've done better in science but simply had never been exposed to that material. The adviser suggested I wait to take the Kaplan until I had some biology under my belt but I just wanted to get it over with asap & knew I could retest if needed after a 3 month waiting period. However, my overall score was a 81 which the lady who administered the test said that was a great score. I was told not to bother with retesting if I scored above a 60 or 65.
Good luck with Brenau!!!
