    Comparing Emory to chamberlain is like comparing a BMW to a Hyundai. Except this Hyundai is going to cost you just as must The BMW.

    Emory does not require, per se, experience. They just require a resume. If you have work exp or volunteer exp they want you to put it on there. By no means do they require it. A friend of mine got in with zero volunteer work. Just wanted to clear that up. Look up stay at home mom resumes for help with that area so you can put something on it. You could also email admissions at Emory and explain your situation. They are very good about helping people out with the application process.

    And you are mistaken, no school in Atlanta has a waiting list. They are all competitive merit-based admission. With your grades, I wouldn't waste my time with Chamberlain. Schools like that are for people who don't have the grades to go elsewhere and want to skip the prereqs. Emory or even one of the local state programs (GSU, KSU, CSU) would be better IMO.

    Just came across this thread as I was looking at different schools. Just wanted to say I think what you said was very offensive Meeep. Not everyone does it because they have bad grades, some just can't wait the 2 years it takes to do prerequisites and then however long until they get in the program and then at least another 2 years for the actual degree. Also I don't go to Chamberlain but if they are CCNE accredited then they are a good school. Don't hate on all for profit schools because they have their niche and it's not all stupid people that got bad grades.

    That's your opinion. We are all entitled to them. Chamberlain definitely does take applicants with low GPA's, as well as people who have been kicked out for academic dishonesty at other schools. I am sure there are some people with 4.0's that just want to skip the waiting, but that fact does not make my point any less true. Equating it with an Emory education is just silly, and that was the point I was making.

    Chamberlain is not for people who don't have prereq's or the grades. My GPA is not bad at all all I took all of my prereq's at GPC to cut costs. I actually start inSeptember. I think going to an Open House would be better rather than getting second hand info.

    I totally disagree!!! I took a lot of prereq's before Chamberlain which helped with tuition. What I'm paying at Chamberlain is NOT anywhere near the cost of Emory. Who cares about this school being better than that. What really matters is passing yr Nclex and getting yr license at the end of the day.

    In my opinion, I will suggest that you go to a nursing school that is accreditated. I mean CCNE or NLN accredited that are recognized by Hospitals.

    Chamberlain has both regional and national (CCNE) accreditation.

    AND I feel as if I'm getting a great education towards obtaining my BSN. It might not be the most prestigious school in ATL, but no need to put down something you probably don't know much about.
