Quote from angelito1981
i know it is expensive but i think the faster results attracts a lot of people. i am in that boat right now. i applied twice at bcc/bc before and didn't even get a reply. it sucks because when i asked them, the said,"there is no guarantee in time, availability". i rather pay now that wait longer which i see it as wasting more time. i am making descent money right now in my job but it got to the point that i need to move on and pursue my goals/dreams.
i can see your point as well.
i wanted to be an rn more than anything back in 2002*2003 that i would of done anything to get in. back when i was applying-- which seems like forever ago now that is 2010 keiser was just starting out-- and i did not want to get in to a $20-30k debt with a school that i did not know if it was going to be accredited, and a school that was located at a strip mall (i've seen the school when i went shopping!). i knew that keiser was a technical school (i had already gone to national school of technology- for ma, so another technical school did not attract me much).
but after getting 2 and 3, and 4 rejection letters from mdc, and my aa was just about complete, i was getting desperate and i would of gone anywhere to get my rn degree. so one of the girls in my chemistry class told me she was applying to nsu in davie and a light bulb came up and i decided to apply and got in! unfortunately i did not make it at nsu-- but kind of a blessing in disguise because now i do not have a $40k debt that i would of had with nsu, and instead i went to bcc which is practically pennies compared to nsu. i got extremely lucky.
if your heart desires to be an rn, and you cant get into a cheap college-- then go to the private technical school for your rn. yes you will be with a $40k debt for your associate's degree--- but once you have that rn next to your name, you see your name on the florida website......... every penny you spent on loans in school will be worth it. you will be working and doing well financially, and little by little you will pay it off.
but keep applying to the public schools! you might just get lucky and get accepted!
