I can't give any advice on the HESI because I'm not taking it until mid December. Though I am a Fall 2011 Hopeful!!! I'll graduate from Lone Star College in May 2011. I have about 4 more classes I'm registered to take (PHIL, Statistics, GOVT2, & Nutrition) in the Spring but hoping to finish with at least a 3.6% GPA. I have been submitting BSN applications over the last few weeks. So far I've applied to UT Houston, A&M, & UTMB. We have a long wait ahead of us since we probably won't hear back until March/April!!! It sounds like you are in the Houston area also! Keep me posted & good luck!!!
