To be fair, GW and Saddleback have some clinicals at the same hospitals...however, I am- and always will be- partial to Saddleback. I remember my first semester, I had clinicals at Hoag and some of the GW students would sit with us at lunch (so nice). I have to confirm what Dread090 said about the instructors. They are all outstanding. I'm going into my last semester in August and I can honestly say I never once felt like an instructor didn't have my back when I needed it.

The exams are tough and incrementally harder with each exam (prepping for NCLEX from day one). The information isn't spoon fed to you, you are expected to do the work. There are community health hours that must be done (Home health, vaccination clinics, teddy bear clinics (my fave), child birthing and lactation classes and so on...
Either way, when it's all said and done, I don't think that one school's graduate gets preferred over the other. I think that RN=RN once you pass the NCLEX.
Saddleback is for me, but go with what works for you and CONGRATS
