Right now I'm wrapping up my pre-req's for nursing and last night I was having a conversation with one of my classmates about where we're going to apply. I mentioned all CUNY and SUNY schools because it's all I can afford (I'm maxed out on loans from my first degree). She said she's applying to all private because of the "wait" to get into public schools. She mentioned she talked to someone at Lehman who said the wait time is about 2 years to get in. Every time I hear this from people, it makes me scratch my head -- especially after I read posts on here about people who applied to CUNY or SUNY schools a few months ago and were accepted (or denied), so obviously there isn't always a wait just to get in. Can someone shed some light on this?
