To be honest I don't know much about BC or CSUB's program other than BC is "supposed" to be more hands on and have great professors.
I applied to both programs so I hope I get into CSUB for Fall, although it's really competitive so I'm a bit doubtful about it. If not I'm going to keep trying to get into BC. I hope you're right about getting in my second time. It was a bummer getting that rejection letter.
Brush up on basic algebra. Order of operations, FOIL, ratios, etc. I think I did best on the math, it wasn't too bad. The science is difficult, there was a lot of Chemistry on mine that I couldn't recall ever seeing before. Reading was simple. I hated the "this word has the same meaning as which on of these words," things. Vocabulary is hard to study because the words are random, it's like you know it or you don't.
I didn't get in through the traditional application... but I did apply for a sponsorship with both Memorial and Mercy hospitals and ended up getting selected by both. I just found out today both hospitals accepted me so now I have to make the awkward 'no thank you' phone call. *gulp*
