I am currently a senior at LICH. Will graduate May,2010(hopefully). As for the admissions, like any nursing school,it is competitive .However,they look at the entire package.So,even if your GPA is not the strongest, I would still encourage you to apply.Essay is particularly important and so is the entrance exam score.I hope you know that the school no longer takes NLN Scores but the TEAS.
Any other questions, feel free to ask.
My suggestion: Keep a back up school option always open.

You can probably start working on your application at this time. the deadline is in March for early decision and April for late.
Refer to http://futurenurselich.org for details.If you haven't taken the TEAS,time to prepare for it will also need to considered.Also the recommendations(I forgot to let you know earlier this is IMP too)
- 0Jan 22, '10 by Each1Teach1I don't have such good ratings for LICH, especially for it's faculty. No one is there to help you! There are no advisors and if you do consult your professor, you'll be lucky to get anything senseful out of them. In addition to that, these professors (there's only 2 per grade) refuse to own up to their mistakes. I know multiple students who were kicked out of the program on a 74.0 to a 74.9 average because the school requires you to maintain a 75. Okay, that's fine BUT when the student has sufficient documentation to prove that the professor was wrong on multiple questions? These professors think they are perfect and will rub their degrees in your face. On another note, the school has 1...I repeat...ONE...run down classroom in a very old building and on top of that, there was no heat in the entire building, leaving the students to sit very close together for heat with their coats on.
One more thing, you'll need certain classes like Microbio and A&P, and Ethics, and couple Psych courses which is fine since they're pre-requsites, however, once you are enrolled at LICH, you are forced to take these classes at St. Francis College (much more expensive than a CUNY school).
