Didn't Dennis Tennant use to be JCHS principle? That's beside the point, I'm sure you didn't reject Tech's fine education.. Other way around.

Actually, "hun" this is my home & my mother is a well known professor within the upper level division.. So please, try a different route. Also, resorting to two people sucking each others' "crooked di**s" just proves to everyone why you weren't accepted

I started at Motlow and asked a few questions. One lady said they had 900 applicants, another said 700, but only 250 were qualified. Amy said many applicants have 4.0 and some most have 3.7, she was rather snotty about the whole thing. And gave me the attitude of don't bother. Overall I estimate the chances of being accepted at 40% and this is for Motlow.

This number is still better then the chance of being accepted at Volunteer State Community College in the Physical Therapy Assistant Program, which I estimate the acceptance rate to be about 23%.

It seems to me that they watch people's demeaner in the early programs and "discuss" things amongst themselves. So someone with the 4.0 and acts like an ass will not get in. Someone with a 3.5 and can take orders and criticism will get in. They probably also look at life experiences as well as everything else that can be considered.

What bugs me about this is that the schools are not straight up with telling the students their chances of getting in. They don't tell students the truth, and why? Probably $$$$.

They can't know your chances of getting in unless they know how many people will be applying and what their attributes are. If you're competing for a spot out of 50 with a 4.0 GPA against 400 applicants then your chances will be a lot worse than if you're competing for one of 50 spots with a 3.5 GPA against 60 applicants.

I can tell you without a doubt that there's no way that Motlow's nursing program receives 700-900 applications per semester. I've heard that TTU's nursing program receives an average of 60 per semester. MTSU receives a couple hundred applicants.
There you go

I did not use attributes, only "averages" with 100 spots available, and 250 qualified applications puts the chances at 100 over 250, 25 divides into 10 places that at 40%

No one, not even the "school" will estimate all applicants "attributes" but you can do a rough estimate using how many apply and how many spots are open.

Not sure if it's changed since then but last time I checked, TTU's nursing school has the highest first time NCLEX pass rate in the state. A very good school.

I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone after hearing all the crap that goes down there!!! The professor's that work their are hippocrates! They will bend the rules for students they want to succeed but if your on the other end you better work your butt off and have nothing planned for 2 years except nursing school. They have a high pass rate on the NCLEX but when those students join the working world they are let go 50% of the time because they can't keep up in the real world! TTU needs to worry more about the students and not waste millions of dollars on a glitched facility. Use this money to hire more professor's who actually care if the students succeed!!! As much as a shortage of nurses there is you would think all nursing schools would be doing their best to make sure there students succeed. I don't care about passing the NCLEX if I won't be able to hold down a job once doing so! I applied an got into Tech then changed my mind when I got accepted it was based solo of GPA...I had a 3.87 I do not regret my choice and I will be graduating this DEC!:)
It's very clear to me that you haven't a clue as to what you're talking about. I never saw an instructor exhibit any level of unfairness or favoritism while I was a student there. I did see a couple of people get their rude, inconsiderate, arrogant asses handed to them though and one senior who was quite taken with the faculty was thrown out of the program a couple of weeks before graduation because she was caught cheating. You're probably one of those stupid little girls who got yelled at or dismissed from clinicals for your behavior!

Why do you think thousands of locals are being trained at a time to work in the medical field?They have an extremely high turnover andif you arent related to or friends with a "tenured" "person" there you wont be staying on.

I find it interesting that you have an opinion on college and nursing school when you've never completed either.

Quit acting like you're entitled to go to nursing school! You're probably one of those people who thought that just because the minimum GPA required to apply is a 2.5, you could get in with a 2.6.

I bust my ass an an RN at CRMC! I am proud to say I work there and you my friend are always bashing the people that could help you the most! If it isnt law enforcement its nurses (CRMC).
I am assuming that you couldnt get into nursing programs because of your criminal record? Or is it that you couldnt get into law enforcement, so decisded to try nursing or vice versa?
What is your problem with public safety? Jaded much? You have to be the most miserable failure in life ever! I am sure you are so dissapointed at how your life has turned out. No future, probably no job, couldnt make it thru college. Plain o waste of good fresh air, huh.
