Well, I was pretty much in the same boat. I took all of my pre-req's at DCCC, so I felt comfortable there. I applied to DCCC, FTCC, & GTCC and was accepted at all 3. I have talked to people that are currently in programs at all schools
and it sounds like I get something different about all and the common theme is that it's going to be tough no matter where I choose. Before making my decision I took in consideration where I would be doing clinicals, how far I would have to drive and pass/fail rate. In the end, I figure that students graduate from the programs all of the time, so it can be done.
I also agree with you on the summer school! No stopping once you start. Let me know what you decide and Good luck!
