Hey TX2015, I completely understand how you're feeling. This whole thing is so obscure, and with so much riding on it--our careers--it's extremely stressful.
I applied for the Fall 2014 semester back in Jan 2014. I had no idea what would transfer, etc. and was surprised to find out that in order to get the transcript eval I had to apply first. My thinking was, I'll just go down there and find out if it's worth me applying yet or whether I should take a few more classes first. As you know, not the case. Pay your $60 and wait.
I received the transcript eval for that application (Fall 2014) in February 2014. I had 32 hours of the required prereques. Also, they wanted my foreign transcripts. I received the letter saying I didn't accepted into the Fall 2014 semester in March 2014. The letter didn't say why. I just figured I was missing a transcript (the foreign one) and 8 hours short of the 40.
The transcript eval I received the other day was dated November 2014, and it was the same transcript eval I received before. I'm sure they will have updated everything and I'll receive a new one soon. I just freaked out when I first saw it and couldn't think straight.
I'm sure your stuff will transfer. I too have no idea what their criteria for acceptance is. I imagine they give greater weight to classes taken at 4 year colleges than at community colleges.
My worry is that my A&P, Micro, Math, etc. were taken over 7 years ago. I don't know if that counts against me. I did well on the HESI. Although, I made an 830 on CT and completely forgot to do the learning styles thing! I'm hoping that having been an LVN for the last 7 years and currently working in the med center will count in my favor. I'm not sure, though, as maybe they only want young, fresh out of college kinda students.
Sounds like you've done your research, though. Good luck to you, too!
Are you going to spend another $60 and put in an application for the Fall 2015 semester? The deadline is Jan 15th. I figured I would. Why not?
