hello everyone! i'm new here, nice to see a place where pre-nursing students like me can get some actual advice/information!
well, here's my background story in a nutshell...i attend a 4 year state university and i'm now currently a junior. i'm a pre-nursing student and i applied to the program and unfortunately didn't get in...super super competitive. now the options that i have since i didn't get in are either: 1) change your major or 2) go to a different school. since i didn't want to change my major, i'm now currently at home taking some summer classes and my plan was to stay at home for a while and go to nursing school here.
here's the kicker: i am behind a couple of classes in my pre-reqs. i did NOT do well in my anatomy class so i'm retaking it now and i have to take microbiology in the fall, which puts me at a disadvantage because now i can't apply to any of the schools here until next semester and i am the type of person that HATES waiting around and i can't go this long without taking classes. i was thinking of possibly going back to the university in the fall and majoring in either criminology or family and child sciences, and while i continue my education i will finish my pre-reqs and apply to another school here in my hometown which has a 2 year waiting list (the term starts summer 2014 and i graduate spring 2014)
so my question is, to all of the men and women who have possibly gone through the same situation, is should i just wait and apply for the community college here at home for next year or should i graduate from the university and go to the program with the 2 year waiting list afterwards? would i be wasting my time if i graduated with a different major???? please help
