Hi everyone, I'm starting my pre-reqs next week (local MA comm coll), I have a BA in English and MS in Counseling. I really only have my sights set on MGHIHP ABSN program, I know I *should* look at other programs, but it's the only one I'm really interested in. I'm shooting for a July 2014 application.
I was wondering, if anyone has taken any pre-reqs through MGHIHP that also got accepted there? Is there any advantage do you think to taking courses through them as opposed to somewhere else?

You gain experience with the faculty and computer system. You may get more in-depth knowledge on the topics.
Likely pay (quite) a bit more for it and the class itself may be a bit harder than the local CC.

I took all my prereqs at Quincy College and was accepted to MGH. If money is not an issue, then I say go for it but I do not think it necessarily gives you a leg up. I think the grades you receive matter more.

If you haven't taken chemistry, I would recommend taking it at mghihp since you can get the requirement done in one semester instead of 3. Otherwise, I don't think it makes a difference.
