Unfortunately i got the rejection letter
AGAIN from TCC.
Does anyone have ANY advice regarding what I should do to be competitive enough to get accepted?
I have completed all pre-req and general classes, A's & B's for all. Got an A in A&P1 & B's in A&P2 and Micro -the pre-req's
My TEAS scores are low..Adjusted Indiv Score 74.7%, Mean Nat'l 74.4%, Mean-Program 75.4%, Reading-85% Math-84.4%, Science-56.7%, English 69.1%
Thanks if you have any info at all :bowingpur...i'm pretty bummed and wondering what's really needed to get into this program!

My former coworker had a 4.0 grade point average in her prerequisite classes and was rejected from TCC after having applied to both their generic ADN program and the LVN-to-RN fast track transition program. She is now an RN student at Southwestern Adventist University's nursing program.
The schools located in the urban areas (TCC, El Centro, Brookhaven, UT Arlington, etc.) are harder to get admitted into since so many people are applying. You might have 600 people applying for 60 nursing spots, so it gets fiercely competitive. If your GPA is less than 3.8, many of the centrally located community colleges may not accept you.
To get around this problem, many people in DFW attend nursing programs
at the outlying colleges (Paris, Hill, Tarleton, Navarro, McLennan, Grayson, NCTC, etc.). My prerequisite GPA is a 3.67, and I'm attending nursing school in Oklahoma City while living in Fort Worth.

To answer the question to why you didn't get accepted is probably because you failed the science section with 56.7%. The math and the science weighs the heaviest, i know that at the info session they say that anything above a 50% is good but let's be realistic, there are about 400-500 applicants for 100 spots. i hate that they give this kind of false information to students. They don't go by overall score on the teas the science section is worth 11%, Math 10%, Reading and English 8%. What is ur science gpa ( chem.,a&p, and micro)? what is ur overall gpa? Have u completed the math requirement and all of ur pre reqs? I got accepted this year after applying for the second time. The first time i had every pre req finished, 3.75 science gpa, 3.5 overall gpa, and a overall score of 69.5 on the teas. I failed the math portion of the teas with a 56% and made a 60% in science. The second time i took it i got a 77% in math and a 70% in science. It also depends on the application pool i honestly believe that there wasnt as many students applying this application period as before b/c i did not think i was going to get accepted. (If you're going to apply for next spring they have changed some things...u can get bonus points for medical terminology
and pharmacology, u can't take spch 1318 as a speech component, and u can only repeat a course twice, if more than twice u will get no points for that course.)
