It was sort of competitive. You have to have 2 letters of recommendation. I had those, but I didn't have any from a medical background. Plus I was the last group that was accepted that could be short any credits on the Pre req's.
The big plus about this program is that we found out in less than 3 weeks if we got accepted or not. I did not get my first choice, but I figured that this was due to me being a few credits short of completing all the pre req's, and not having any nursing/medical background on my job or letters of recommendation.
If you go to the application session, they should be able to tell you when to expect a response as to whether you get accepted or not. I think 3 or 4 MCCCD schools
are doing the Concurrent program, so you might have a better chance as more schools link up with NAU.
You might also want to check out the ASU concurrent program. I know it's more money, but it never hurts to explore all your possibilities.
I had a 4.0 when I applied to the NAU concurrent program, and I can't remember what I got on the NET. I just hope they can tell you quickly whether you got accepted or not.
NAU is also doing a partnership with University of Phoenix as well.
Hope this helps...
