Posted

Hi! I graduated last year and applied for rpn at conestoga and mohawk but unfortunately i did not get in because of my marks and my HOAE mark. I recently re wrote the hoae this year and went back for grade 13 to get my marks. i now have all mid to high 80s in math, english, bio and chemistry. My hoae mark this year was a 64%. This year i have re applied to rpn at conestoga,mohawk, and sheridan. as well as pre health at conestoga and mohawk. Does anyone know when the are sending out acceptances for pre health and rpn? as well as if they think i will be fine with my 64% and with my marks from highschool???

I really hope i get into practical nursing.

Conestoga usually begins sending out first round acceptances on the first business day in February. Then mid-March, and again in April. Anything after April will be a wait list offer, as people who have been accepted only have until May 1st to accept their offers before they expire. Acceptances for those on the wait list can go out anytime up until the week school begins.

What was your last year's marks if you don't mind me asking? And I'm sure you'll get in somewhere, you have high marks! If I were you I'd only apply to one prehealth because you'll definitely get accepted if your eng and math are mid to high 80s and apply to another RPN program at a less competitive college instead that doesn't require the HOAE testing. I'd recommend Jan start.

My overall highschool average is a 81% and like i said before my hoae mark overall average was a 64%... I have been accepted into the pre healthprogram at conestoga, but now i am just waiting to hear about rpn. I also applied for the january intake..is the january intake less competitive?! any advise will be great :)

January is less competetive they usually say. I had low HS grades (and a low university gpa [didnt finish my program]) and was rejected from RPN twice. I eventually decided to pursue my RN by doing prehealth at Fanshawe. I applied to an RPN program as a back up this year and got into George Brown February 1st. I had a 4.17 GPA from pre health. I also wrote the HOAE (for a different program at Fanshawe) and we didnt get a percentage grade on it, just scored in different percentiles. I scored in the 98th and 99th in all categories. I found PHS really helped me on the HOAE. Dont give up yet :) And apply too for January if you want. You can also pursue PHS if you want. I loved the program totally and would recommend it to anyone!
