I'm looking to go back to school for a total career change. I currently hold my BS in Advertising. Being a completely different field I am going to begin taking my prereqs in January at a community college. I have been thoroughly researching following 3 accelerated programs and I am having trouble weighing the pros and cons of each and which I want to apply for. I would really love an positive or negative feedback on what others have heard the main differences amongst the 3 are (aside from Uconn not being a BSN program)
1. Uconn: The prereqs seem less demanding however when looking at the list of acceptable courses that would transfer I was confused if the commas mean one or the other or that you must have both. For example, Chemistry lists Chem111, Chem 112 as a community college equivalent. Does this mean that I need to take both?
2. SCSU ACE: The application process seems daunting. My undergrad degree is from Southern New Hampshire Univ. and it says on SCSU website that the faculty cannot evaluate transfer credits until applying. I would like to know however, prior to applying to the program if my math and psych courses would transfer (if I get accepted to the ACE program and my previous courses DO NOT transfer then I would not have enough time to complete the prereqs before the cohert began) Can anyone speak to this?
3. My concern about Quinnipiac is that it is very expensive. I am a single mother and I'm a waitress but I do not know how far financial aid would carry me on that.
Can anyone speak to any of these or address these questions/concerns? Thanks in advance!
