    Thanks for your advice... How was it taking your nursing classes plus those additional classes, like religion... For students going this fall we take 2 nursing classes and 3 regular classes the 1st semester...

    I have the WHC Schlorship... Did you have the schlorship or now others who did and how did it work 4 them?

    I like the are to work in but my fiance is military so we go where they tell us.. but there are several bases in the area clase to WHC that he can get stationed at..
    Where did you end up working after your degree?

    Thanks again..

    The theology classes were fine--- I liked it. I would recommend the standard one "Problem of God" and see if you can get a recommendation on the teacher. Some of the classes are taught by Jesuit priests and they're supposed to be really good. Don't take Buddhism- it's supposed to be really hard. There is a Holocaust class that is supposed to be awesome too.
    I had trouble finding a job after graduation out of state, and Georgetown didn't really tell us when to start applying- you should apply a LOT during your last semester. I started last month at University of Chicago, which I am really happy to have gotten. But Georgetown "name" will not get you a job unless you are in DC. I got in through a family contact.

    I did my interview for the Georgetown accelerated BSN program on 10/3. There were about 45 of us in my group that day, which included a tour/group interviews for people interested in the WHC Scholars program.

    Getting into this program is highly competitive. I heard the admission rate was something like 1 in 9 for the Spring 2010 cohort. It's not just about grades. To get in, you need to show them that you have a passion for nursing (don't try to fake it), and that you really, really want to go to GU. Again, hearsay was that only about 1 in 3 applicants gets invited for an interview on campus. One third of those get offers.
