Hi everyone,I am applying to Chamberlain for this upcoming spring( Feb 28)BSN program. If anyone doesn't mind telling me because i am such a nervous wreck what there GPA was and HESi score. I have GPA: 3.8 and have taken my HESI a2 test 2 days ago with 81% score!! With the 81% do you think i would have to score higher on the HESI exam??? :confused:

It looks like your GPA is more important than your Hesi A2 @ Chamberlain. The admission requirements are 75% on the A2.

I can tell you that 81% isn't "bad" on the Hesi, in my class @ Gateway, the class average on the Hesi A2 was 81%.

I applied for early admission with Chamberlain for Spring 2011 in October of 2010 and was accepted!

My GPA wasn't the greatest--combined GPA between a previous Bachelor degree where I didn't do the greatest + my GPA at a community college where I took microbio/anatomy/physio and some other GE classes to transfer to have a CGPA of ~2.8. I got a score of 97.3% on my HESI A2 (100% in math and 94.6% in English--studied my butt off for about 3-4 weeks, but also studying for TEAS for other schools, so I was well-prepared).

I think there are several factors involved: GPA + HESI A2 + amount of spaces available + any additional things to consider for the application (I also had my old SAT scores sent in to "boost" my file). The admission committee meets once a month of each month (from what I've been told, the last meeting being January 17th) to review applications. Since I took my test near the end of October, I was notified by mid-November of my acceptance.

I don't think 81% is bad at all, plus you have a very strong GPA. I would ask your Admissions Advisor what their opinion based on your scores & GPA. You may be able to squeeze in another test to bump up your score (if need be) before their last acceptance meeting. Positive vibes going your way!

My Hesi score was 90, I have 3.8 GPA from MCC. I applied in December I think.

I have completed my background and drug screen, now just waiting for orientation I guess.

Anyone from the East valley starting this Feb? I have a commute!

I am sure you will be fine...it took them forever to let me know about my early admission. I kinda bugged my advisor a bit.....

Good luck, let me know if you got the call !!!

I think you should be fine I applied last summer for the october start and got accepted with a GPA of 3.5 and a HESI score of 89 %. But i decided to start this upcoming spring semester. But i think you shouldn't worry to much with a GPA and Hesi score like that. Hope to see all you guys this upcoming semester.
