I have been looking at schools in NYC that offer an accelerated program and it seems like NYU is my first choice. I have other options as well, such as SUNY Downstate and Hunter, but those are much too difficult to get accepted into, and it just doesn't seem worth my time to complete pre-reqs for those schools when there is a high chance that I won't even get into them.
From what I've read in these forums, NYU has a much higher acceptance rate, mainly due to its high tuition, but with a little bit of money saved up, and through loans, I hope be able to manage.
My question is where to complete my pre-reqs. I've been researching CUNYs and local community colleges to take courses as a non-degree student, but I realized how difficult it is to get seats in those classes, since all the full-time students would have already signed up for classes by the time a non-degree student can register.
So I figured it could be possible to complete my prereqs at NYU itself. I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with this, but see the below link for the application:
Does it sound reasonable to anyone that I can complete all the prereqs (I already took Statistics and Chemistry in college), which include AP, Nutrition, Dev Psych, and Microbio in 1-2 semesters and then start right away in the NYU accelerated program? Is that how the program works if I am applying for a 2nd degree in nursing?
Thanks for your help! I hope to hear from those who have gone through the same thing I expect to and are going to/have attended NYU through its accelerated program. Thanks again!
