Ranked 75 percentile for my ADN program.. do you think I'll get in?

Ugh I am so Anxious for March 10th!

So.. I took my TEAS test and applied for the ADN program at DCCC. Students must score a 62 to be ranked.

My Adjusted Individual Total Score was a 74 and my Percentile Rank Nationally and for the program is 75 so that puts me in the top 25% but I don't know if the top 25% will be enough.

Any of my nursing friends have any input? Do I have a chance? I know I can always re-test for next-go-around (next year) but I'm just curious 🤔

Thanks❤

DCCC is a point system based on the following components.

Max # is 16

TEAS score earns 0-10

BIO classes earn you points; I got 2 points there.

College Math earns 1 pt. I didn't take any because I tested out.

ACA earns 1pt. But I'm taking that now :/

Then if applicants have the same # of pts they go off of reading scores first.

It's going to depend on your cohort... all of the other people who are applying at the same time. If they're a bunch of high-flyers, you may not make the cut. But if you're lucky enough to be in an *average* cohort you could be a shoo-in.

Thank you for your reply. Yes I have been trying to see how many student may apply if 250 or less students applied and I am in the top 25% then I should have a good chance to get in... it's a community college in a small town but It is said to be competitive.. sooo I am not sure. 🤔

I'm in a similar situation...small town, cohort only starts every OTHER year, and they only accept 10 people. UGG. I've done the best I possibly can (96.8 on my HESI test) and 3.93 GPA...taking all the pre-reqs that give me points, etc. But it still comes down to who is applying at the same time. Bunch of rockstars? Maybe I haven't done well enough. Just have to cross my fingers and pray!

I wish our school did a ranking. We also have to wait until April to find out if we get in
