    @blue, the upcoming orientation in september is mandatory. if you do not go, you will not be able to attend the program (i'm sure there are exceptions, but this is the basic rule). does this mean there is a spot open for wait-list? i'm not so sure how they will handle no-shows, but it seems odd that they will bring someone in very last minute - even after missing orientation and just 1 day before classes actually begin. @sirena, i haven't received the physical acceptance letters yet as well. in fact, i'm not even sure if they will be sending one (which is odd). @kosmic, so will we get a schedule of classes before the actual orientation to get an idea of what we would want to register (like via mail during the summer)? in addition, when you refer to the "mandatory health insurance", the insurance that is included in the student tuition is suffice?

    My mom is upset because she thinks CSU-LA is a bad school for Nursing. Does anyone know where CSU-LA BSN falls in rankings compared to other BSN programs in the nation? I've tried to look everywhere, but all I could find were MSN programs.

    TEAS Tips - Must Read (2nd Ed.)

    i have recently taken the teas v. honestly, i am not the smartest person but i didn't have to study hard at all for the teas. all i really did were practice problems - and when i wasn't sure on one part, i would find the answers to it. i received a 80% in math, 95% in science, 99% english, and 95% in reading. here is my experience with the whole test process: general tips: - answer every question! do not leave any question blank. there is no penalty for wrong answers, so it is in your best interest to make an educated guess! - eat a healthy breakfast that morning. - sleep early the night before. - do not get stressed/anxious/nervous during the test - deep breaths, calm down, and relax! - bring a highlighter! (not sure if this is allowed - so please double-check with the proctor) - do not get intimidated by other people who finish way earlier than you in a certain section. that person might have just as easily got them all wrong! - wear comfortable clothing! you aren't going out to impress anyone. - morning exercise! - bring your photo id + pen/paper id. - bring your whole pencil case. - bring snacks to munch on during breaks! - practice problems are the way to go. particularly for the reading part: 1) know the different types of writing (expository, narrative, eulogy, informative, etc.) 2) when you read the passages, really find out the author's intent and what he/she is trying to say. 3) when reading multiple choice answers, usually the first adjective or verb will give away the answer. 4) another tip i found (or rather a good habit in general) is to set your homepage to "dictionary.com" - here, you will see the new "word of the day" each time you open up your web browser. i think it will be very helpful to expand your vocabulary knowledge. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- as for the english portion: - make sure you really know the word usage such as they're/their/there - another point to make is to understand subject-verb agreement - there was an emphases on capitalization rules: when to use it, when to not - another tip is to go with your gut instinct - especially in this section. if it sounds right to you, then it probably is. the more you second-guess and repeat the words to yourself, the more distorted the word may get/sound. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ as for the math portion: - a previously mentioned post talked about how www.math.com has saved his life in the math portion and really helped him to do well. obviously, as you probably know from my math score - i didn't really do that well. - obviously you must be comfortable with adding, multiplication, division, long-division, and subtraction by hand. - a good technique is to round off numbers that will eliminate other choices when doing computations - don't be stuck on one problem for too long - just move on. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- as for the science portion: - make sure to know your basic chemistry - make sure to know your basic biology - know some physiology that's about everything i can remember! remember, practice problems really do help! best of luck!

    Waiting List

    How many students from the BSN-program actually gets into the program if they're wait-listed? How does the wait-list even work? If I am fairly high (say #1 or 2) on the waiting list, what does that mean in actual probability of getting in? (The school is CSU LA BSN Program.)
