if you take the time to read the other posts, you will find that my post actually is relevant. i believe the question was whether or not the same qualifying admissions requirements remain in effect, ie. the 2 years of critical care experience. my post was purely objective in stating that, although the requirement is still listed on the website and all of the admission information, it is not followed. this may actually help some potential applicants.
a) the students that have expressed their incontent have issues with the fact that some of the classes were dropped completely from the curriculum, not the fact that a few professors have changed.
b) your class was never mentioned in the post was it?
c)"yes, it is a good idea to talk to students before you apply but you should also validate and analyze the credibility of the information you receive before you post it on the internet
ok, how much more credible and valid can information be if it comes as a first person source? listen, it sounds like you feel as though you need to defend your program and i am not sure why. unless you have some issues yourself with it. i think it is a great program and know several crnas that rec'd their degree there. this is a forum where questions are asked and answers are posted. subjective and objective.

actually everything in your post regarding the admissions process is completely irrelevant due to the new administration revamping the process. furthermore, it was irresponsible of you to post on the internet that people are unhappy with the new administration for these reasons:
a. of course there will be some unhappy students in the class that started with one group of professors and had them all suddenly replaced. i for one know first hand that most of them are happy but will admit that the transition was stressfull to them.
b. the new students, including myself have been to class for 3 days, none of which included lectures or tests by the new director (that starts next week)so any unhappy comments from my class would be completely unfounded.
yes, it is a good idea to talk to students before you apply but you should also validate and analyze the credibility of the information you receive before you post it on the internet.
