    I had the same problem with IVY tech about not getting straight answers. They told me the wrong deadline date and I missed it prolonging my admission further as I had applied 3 semesters in a row at IUPUI having taking all of my pre-requisites there and having all A's and a B and still did not get in there. I then tried BSU and I LOVE IT!! I was accepted there immediately and it is a wonderful program. I have learned so much there and though I have had to commute from Indy, has been a great experience. I would totally recommend going there. I am 24 and married and am using FAFSA to pay for my tuition. I highly recommend this program, and hope you would consider it. The drive really isn't that bad. Just straight up 69 about an hour from Indy (if you go a teensy bit over the limit. ;-) )

    I'm glad you're having a good experience there. I went there from '99 - '01 and I HATED it. The professors didn't want to see you outside of class, so if you had a question, tough. They were narcissitic (sp) and didn't care if you passed or failed. I had a professor whose test questions were like this: what page did chapter one start on, who or what is the first thing in the index, etc. One professor yelled at a student (and I mean yelled with an eraser thrown at her) for asking a question. I left and went to Ivy Tech. Liked it there, but wanted to try college again. I'm now attending Marian and I'm loving it! I wondered why I just didn't go here in the first place. Everyone is so nice, helpful, will go out of their way for you, etc. Yes, tuition is expensive but if you do your research you should get scholarships and grants. You also get a grant from Marian. I didn't have to borrow anything to attend here.

    Sounds like maybe they got rid of the bad professors at BSU. At the time, I wasn't the only one with problems with the teachers. I'm not transferring again. But I'm glad you're having a great experience! Good luck in school!

    I looked into BSU and it's not gonna work for me. 4 year program only. I NEED to do the 2 year and start working as a nurse, then finish up the Bachelors. Marian and U of I are still my top choices It's good to hear you are liking Marian!

    Actually, this has changed. At least for the Fall 2007 class. Because the cirriculum changed, they all allowing the classes taken in Spring 2007 to count toward admission to the Fall 2007 nursing program. This is a recent change, so check with the admissions office.
    I am in ANP2 right now, and will be applying for the Fall 2007 ASN program. I was told that the Spring classes will count for Fall admissions.
    Hope this helps!

    No and here's why. Points are only awarded for courses completed by the application DEADLINE . For example the ASN deadline for the class starting Jan 01 2007 was something like Sept 15 2006 (and Oct 15 for the LPN class starting at the same time giving those who applied to the ASN class and were not accepted the opportunity to apply to the LPN class). Thus, ALL classes for points would have had to be completed at the latest by the end of the Summer Semester 2006. Now classes completed in the Fall of say 2007 could be applied towards the class starting in Aug of 2008 (I think the deadline for class application would be something like March 15 2008). Is this clear as mud? Also TEAS tests need to be taken for the last time (you get up to three shots in a two year period) about a month or so before the application deadline AND you MUST have attended one of the many information sessions.
