I have heard some good things about Holy Cross college. I think the reason that you haven't heard a lot about it is because the classes are very small. Honestly, I would love to go there but I don't want to be in serious dept when I graduate. About 30,000 for nursing school? Am I calcuating this correctly? I recently looked at LSU med school and it was 27,000.... :/
I honest don't have much experience with financial aid. I've been going to Delgado and paid out of pocket. And for my first degree I was on TOPS. I used a student loan calculator and it told me for 30,000 dept I would pay approx $360 a month. It was a random internet site, so not sure if that's even accurate. That's not a crazy note to me on a nurses salary, but if I were to go on to get my NP and need more financial assistance, would I have a problem getting it?
Sorry for the ramble, but my brain is fried from A&P haha. I was planning on applying to Charity & LSU for spring admission but my boyfriend interviewed a lot of nurses today on his EMT ride along and 9 out of 10 at a private New Orleans hospital said go to Holy Cross. Also a friend said to do whatever you could to go there. I'm just trying to crunch numbers and weigh options.
Any advice would be appreciated!
