I have read a number of posts that alluded to wait lists last a year or more for nursing schools. Can anyone tell me specifically which schools in the Twin Cities have these lengthy wait lists? I am applying to the UMN, Normandale, Inver Hills, and Ridgewater but I have not read anything on their sites about wait lists running a year or more. Seems to me that there are three options; you get in, you temporarily get wait listed for the upcoming fall, or you get rejected. I haven't read anywhere about a school potentially responding with "not this year, but we'll take you in the fall of 2011." Am I missing something?
