    Hello flymedicRN24. Jacksonville is one of my top choices but I'm waiting on admission decisions from 3 other schools. Once i get those, I will choose a school. Did u apply anywhere else? What made u choose Jacksonville? Are u familiar with the program?

    Hi pandorasbox. I felt the negative issues seen with the bbb with CGU and the coach at UTA helped me decide. I also like that the classes at JU are web based as well. I like seeing and listening to instructions. I am also able to contact the instructor directly. At least that is what I am told.

    I do not know of anyone personally who has went. I just haven't found negative things about the school.

    I live in Florida, so I can also apply for additional grant money awarded to FL residents. I just feel they have more to offer me. I hope that ends up being true.

    So my adventure starts Jan 7th

    Congratulations on your decision. I was already accepted at Jacksonville, but like I told you, I am waiting on other schools in order to make a final decision. I'm in FL right now visiting family, but that won't get me a discount, lol.

    Is Jacksonville a well known school? Just wondering how it will look on a resume.

    Thank you. I also applied to UTA. I haven't heard very much from them. An advisor called me last Tues. asking me to complete the application process. I informed him all was done just waiting on my last transcript. He didn't seem to have a clue. JU seems to be well known. Founded in 1930's as Junior College, and 1950's as University.

    Hi flymedicRN24. Out of curiosity, do you have to do any additional coursework at Jacksonville? They told me I need stats and a 3 hr nutrition course cuz the one I transferred in was only 1 hr.

    Other schools want a combination of other coursework varying from college algebra, stats, another course in speech or communication cuz mine only came in as 2.67 cr hrs, and they must have 3.0 cr hrs. That happened due to the fact that my school was on the qtr system when I attended. Ridiculous to have to take a whole other class just because I'm short 0.33 hrs!

    So, for the moment, Jacksonville is still in the running, but I am still waiting on a decision from UTA and Utica College. I don't have much hope from UTA as they require even more coursework with TX and US history, etc.

    Have u already enrolled for classes at JU?

    Hi pandorasbox. Yes, I have to take statistics and college algebra. I have already taken a 3 hr Nutrition in as pre-req for AS. I will also have to take history and their intro to chemistry along with world lit, philosophy. I am ok with the classes because I intend on going to graduate school.
