I'm only in my second semester of my freshman year at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, and have already declared my major in nursing. Being a male, I know that I will have a difficult road ahead of me, but have accepted the challenge with an open mind. Earlier this semester I found out that the recent change in my fathers job, is going to require us move to Houston, TX. Looking at the nursing programs within the city I have noticed that UTHealth is one of the top schools in the state as far as nursing standards go.
My question is, does UTHealth judge its applicants based on where they go to take their pre-reqs. Do they look at where you got your course work done more than they do your actual grades? As i'm sure most of you can relate, the college years are not exactly considered living lavishly, and being on a very tight budget, I will most likely have to go to a community college to complete my pre-reqs.
