Noticed there was no post for this and decided to create one.

Feel free to share anything regarding admissions and the program itself. This may include GPA, HESI scores, involvement, study guides, practice tests, and general information you have heard about admissions before.

super nervous about getting in due to low critical tracking GPA 😞 I have a 93.2 on my HESI, 970 critical thinking section, but I have a 3.3 critical tracking GPA and a 3.5 overall GPA. I have >100 community service hours, 10 from baby gator, and ~50 from Shands volunteering. I think my essays were decent. Wishing everyone luck!!

Hi all, I have a 3.9 overall GPA and a 4.0 critical tracking GPA. I got a 93% on my HESI and a 940 on critical thinking. I have volunteered at Shands and Baby Gator, as well as through Gator Pals and SHIP. I did a global medical training trip through UF and a Gap Medics trip. I have my CNA, CPR, and BLS certifications. My essays were well-written but didn't have the best stuff to talk about compared to other people, probably. Nervous that my grades are gonna drop this semester b/c of online transition πŸ˜• Oh well! Good luck to everyone applying.

That's true! Although, less time spent in advising appointments with students LOL. Maybe it'll work in our favor..

Is it a different personality test than the one on the HESI?

Yeah they email it to us. Apparently it's like getting through the first round of acceptance, I think they send it to candidates that they like.

Ahh okay! It kinda sucks not getting any updates or knowing when we will hear back. I’d rather know sooner than later but I guess they have to wait for grades from this semester?
