I'm looking to apply by sept 1 for spring at ivy tech. The only prob is only 1 of the 3 surrounding campuses offer asn in the spring. Ill of course apply for that but I don't have as high of a score as I could and was hoping to better my odds. In my region (which is only lpn for spring) I have a 198 and at the other 2 I have 195. Would you go ahead and apply for lpn and then immediately transisition or wait til next april and apply only for asn? My ultimate goal is to be a rn. One pro to lpn is id only have to drive the first year and finish within 10 min from my home while transisitioning (but asn or lpn is not offered). I hope this makes sense!

Do whichever route makes most sense to you. Some people wait until after their first application to an RN program is wait listed or rejected before they go the LPN route.
