I don't have info on those programs because I am further south, but my advice is to get the list of requiements and complete them. The schools in my area accept based on points not a waitlist. I did everything on the points list including working in a hospital and volunteering at a hospital. I studied my bottom off to get A's in all of my sciences too. It took me 3 years to get through all the classes etc (some of it was part time) and I was just accepted into a competitive BSN program for the fall. There are not any short cuts but you can find a school that fits your needs. I wasted a lot of time trying to fullfill requirements for several different schools. Just do some research
