I will be relocating to Leesburg, VA in the near future and I am planning on starting an accelerated 2nd degree program sometime in 2011. My first choice would be George Mason, because of cheap in-state tuition, but I have heard its very difficult to get into so I am considering other options of course!
I am interested in Shenandoah University because 1)the second degree program is located right in Leesburg, where I'll be living and 2)they have a midwifery program. However, so far I've very mixed (mostly negative) reviews..
Have any of you gone through their 2nd degree bachelor's program or their midwifery program? What did you think? Do you think it would be possible to transition right into a master's program from the 2nd degree program (their site says they require a year of nursing experience before applying)? Or, in general, what is the school's reputation? Would it be worth the extra $$$ and commute to consider places like Georgetown or John Hopkins instead?
Thanks for the help!
