I currently have a degree in Education and have completed all the pre-reqs for nursing. I applied to an accelerated program, but my GPA(3.8) and Kaplan(79) may not be competetive enough. I am borderline and the advisor said that the same scores would probabaly be accepted into their regular nursing program. I find out in a couple of weeks whether I am accepted or not to the accelerated program, so here's my dilemma. If I'm not accepted, do I try for the two year(5 semester) program or wait a year and shoot for the accelerated slot again? What is the biggest difference as far as scheduling between a 5 semester program and a 12 month accelerated?
