    Hi Brielle,

    I got into Marymount and GWU for the Fall 14 and I would really to pick your brain on the pros and cons of both. I have been feverishly doing my research-but nothing beats talking to students like you, especially ones who had the make the same decision I have to make. If you have a moment can you give me a call? I would love to chat or take you out for coffee at a date, location and time of your convenience. I am not gonna lie I am a bit anxious about making the right decision. My main concern w GWU is having professors who teach to the test and don't just say know everything and who really care about helping their students succeed. The ability to get text and syllabi access somehwt early to get a jumpstart on work as well as starting some NCLEX prep beforehand. And of course having to move or live closer as I live in Arlington as well as being able to manage the workload and heavy courseload and do well. The fail rate and of course NCLEX pass rate is my utmost concern. I want to go to a school where I can manage the work, and not feel overwhelemed even though I am working hard- so how ot manage time when you go to class 9-5 and probably want to nap before you do work again is also a concern. If there are days of no class in between that seems manageable. When tests and finals are schedule is also another concern. I do not want more than 1 test onthe same day if possible.

    Anyway as you see I have a few questions and I would really appreciate your help. Please call me at 201 560 6454 anytime, day or nite, if at all possible. I would be eternally grateful to learn from the wisdom of your experiences.

    Thank you very much for your time, help and consideration.

    Warm regards,

    Lauren Montalvo
