Gee, I know this post is four months after you guys have posted, but I just was browsing around and saw it; I hope one of you might help.
I am waiting to see if I get into the Accelerated BSN program at Georgetown; I could have gone into Direct Entry but was afraid to commit to D.C. (or Georgetown)for so long since I live in California, too. I'm ALSO afraid to commit to the WHC scholarship program. What did you guys end up doing?
I figured out that the three years working there would actually cost way more in living expenses than borrowing the money the scholarship pays for. I have all the tuition, it's the money for rent, etc., that I need.
Also, does everyone selected for the "first draft" HAVE to attend an interview? I figured they would.
Any information about Georgetown will be greatly appreciated.
So I ended up choosing to go to NYU because of all the reasons you've listed, pretty much. I'm from CA, and I couldn't commit to the three year scholarship at WHC. It was just too much time for me when I wasn't even sure if I would like the city yet. I mean, I visited and I knew I liked it, but it's different when you live there, you know?
For me, NYU was a better choice even though I'm going to be paying all those loans back. You have to just decide what's best for you. Have you gone to the Georgetown interview yet? I applied for the scholarship even though I didn't think I wanted it. I interviewed at WHC and at Georgetown before I made up my mind about anything. That way I had all the information before I decided anything.
I have no idea if that was helpful at all, but there you have it. Feel free to ask me anything else and I'll try to answer
