Here's my dillema--I am applying to nursing schools for next fall. There is only one public BSN program in my area. There are private ones around, but they cost a lot, and since this is my second career, I'm paying
and I don't want to come out of school with a huge loan.
There are ADN programs around here, but I already have all the pre-reqs for the BSN. How many programs did you apply to and how many did you get into?
Any input would be helpful, including any advice on assuring my acceptance into the school I want.

I applied to one. I was an undergrad at the university, though...that might have made a difference (they said it didn't...).
Got into the one I applied to the first time around. My school had a reputation for being 'difficult' to get in to, and the professors were all so secretive about who got in why (some students with 4.0's were turned away while others with 2.9's got accepted...), so I just did the best I could grade wise, kept my nose clean discipline wise, sat in the front row at all my pre-req classes, and made sure not to get on the bad side of ANYBODY before I got in. That was about it.
Just do your best. Keep your grades up. Don't brown-nose, but don't be a trouble maker (not yet...save that for AFTER you graduate...hee hee!). That's all you really CAN do, short of fulfilling any specific requirements they have outlined.
