I know this seems like a really stupid question but I wanted to see what the people on here have found out from personal experience. Not too long ago I was talking with a group of fellow nursing students about the process of getting accepted into the nursing program at our college. A few of the students said that out of all the students they knew that applied for the program most of the time men who applied were accepted after their first or maybe second attempt, while most other students are accepted after their second or third time applying. During the discussion, I told them that I didn't really think that being a guy (and a minority) was what led to this situation but they seemed to disagree and suggested I ask some other guys at this website and some other nursing students overall and see what they think. What does everyone think about this?
