I'm from Mexico...

  1. 0
    And i went to college there, i could not finish my DMD, one year left, and this was more than 15 years ago...
    Now I'm trying to get in to nursing school, do i have to prove them about my Mexican records?
    Or just not mention it and go with all my pre requisites and so on...
    Not doing it will save me $400 to $500 in tranlation paperwork...

    Any advice will be really appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Having your transcripts might save you from having to take a couple of classes. The translation might cost $400-$500, but so will the classes.

    If the school(s) application form tells you to list and submit transcripts from all your previous schools (which is pretty standard here), you omit the Mexican school(s), and your school later finds out, one way or another, that you did attend another college/uni and didn't include that info on your application, many schools consider that academic dishonesty sufficient to expel you from the program.

    Honesty is always the best policy.

    No, they did not accept any of my credits. According to the ECE transcript I have 137 credit hours but according to any school they are too old or not transferable... It is what it is!
    De que parte de México eres?
