Hi! (Warning this is going to be long)
I'm going to start my sophomore year majoring in pre-nursing or health specialization at northern essex community college. When I was in highschool i didn't know what SAT's were because I came from Israel freshman year so I had no clue about anything and still don't have a clue. when I asked my guidance counselor what SAT's were he answered "don't worry about it." Because he just assumed that I won't go to college but I was so confused and I didn't know what I wanted. In the summer after graduating high school I realized that I always wanted to be a nurse, but no school accepts transfers (not the ones the work for me) right now in community college I'm an honors student but I think that it's still expensive for community college just for an RN degree so i'd rather go to a state school and get a BSN but it doesn't seem to be an option. I'm really interested in the UMASS AMHERST nursing program and I feel like i fit in this school. So the point of this post... what if I wrote an email about myself and how bad I want to get into their program so that they consider accepting? I know that this sounds very dumb. But I have worked very hard and went through alot and I think that I deserve to be in a good program. (Aren't we all though) But no one helped me because my parents have never experienced college in America and other people didn't seem to do their job.
