    For all of you that applied last year: What do you all think my chances are of getting in with an 83 on the HESI and a 3.4 GPA? Thanks in advance!

    Hi all!

    I'm getting really nervous reading all of these comments! I started my application process yesterday and plan to apply this summer. I have a BS from vcu but I do not have micro or A&P 1/2 i've noticed a lot of you are taking those classes before the program? I thought they were part of the program- am I wrong about that? or are you all just taking them to get them out of the way?

    Also how hard was the HESI and what sections do they use?

    bowersjc, good luck with your application, I applied back in 2015 so not sure if any changes have been made in the evaluation process, it may be helpful to check with the folks that applied more recently to the program. I believe overall the point system is used in ranking the applicants, most weight is given to HESI scores, secondly your sciences (esp A&P and Micro) are weighed - that's why many people take them prior to the program to increase their odds of acceptance, lastly your psychology/ethics are added. HESI when I applied had reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, math, chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, and critical thinking. It's all pretty fairly basic stuff in HESI, nothing too deep from what I remember.
    Anyways, hope this helps,
    Again, good luck with the application.

    Hello everyone! I know this is for last year but I dropped off my application for spring 2018 start date and had a few questions. I know its a year round program but at the info meet they mentioned a small break for summer. My fiance and I are trying to plan an elopement and of course this all depends on if i get into the program. I can't find anything online about the calendar except the regular TCC one. When are your breaks during the program and how long are they?
