I applied to 4 programs, all state schools, and I've received rejection letters from 2, one of which was my top choice. I did, however, get accepted into the universities as a undergraduate transfer student. Has this happened to any of you? I need advice. Should I just take another year off and apply to more schools next year? OR should I get into one of the universities, change my major to (let's say) public health, and reapply next year to the nursing program with the hope that being a current student and local resident I'll have a better chance at getting in?
Any suggestions are appreciated, thank you!
