    I would get school over ASAP. I'm sure you're making a lot as a travel nurse in Cali, but for me, I was making a little under $50k in Florida and wouldn't wait another year...that would be giving up a CRNA salary for a year instead! Financially it made sense to me. I had a bit saved up, and my only debt was my car, which was an affordable one and my payment is only $210/month.

    If you can live like a student...on a budget...you should be fine on loans. You'll be able to pay them back pretty quickly as a CRNA, if you *want* to haha. I'm planning on paying them off within 2 years of graduating.

    Make a budget, make a plan, save save save before you start ������
    Yeah, I hear you. My main concern is my car note. Thanks for your feedback. I really appreciate it

    St. Baptist Your stats look awesome! The GRE shouldn't be an issue considering your experience and GPA. I hope you went ahead and applied!

    The most important thing to remember for you (or anyone who is applying) is that the single most important factor to getting into school is your interview. All your stats do is get you an interview. If you have a bad interview it won't matter if yo have a 4.0 GPA and a 330 GRE. If you have a great interview that shows the program that you are passionate and will be an asset to their program, you will jump over people with better stats than yours. Try to get those stats as high as you can, but start preparing and practicing for your interview now!!!

    I applied to many schools (perhaps, too many). I applied to UTC, Adventist, Arkansas, LSU, MTSA, and Rutgers. I've already interviewed at UTC, Adventist and Arkansas. I just received an acceptance letter from Adventist University. My tip to you is to be confident (if only for that time period), know your ACLS, drugs, and as much as you can about vents/ airway protection. Also review your hemodynamics, and oxyhemoglobin curve. Most importantly, Be yourself! You will do great!
