Hi my name is Samantha and I was recently accepted into D'youville College of Nursing in New York for Spring 2018, therefore starting clinicals in Fall 2018. I really want to go but my mom is trying to force me to go to a school in Texas, however, my GPA for the Texas school is extremely low (they did not take a bunch of my classes from my current school in Michigan) and now I'm in a dilemma. New York gave me a large scholarship
and Texas gave me a small one but my mom is scared that I'll be in a State where I know no one. (Bear in mind I'm 17 years old and college sophomore and since I'm really young she is still trying to dictate my life). I almost know I won't get into the Texas SON so I really do think I should go to New York. DO you have any ideas to let her let me go to NY? Also are any of you starting the Nursing Program in January 2018? Look forward to hearing your replies!
