I have been researching more about going to school for nursing and was pretty set on trying to go to MATC since I had gone there before for a different degree. I took many of the General courses already so I only need to take science and biology classes. I am a little put off by the petition process of MATC, the fact that I could complete all of the General courses and get all my shots then get turned down for whatever reason and have to wait until next semester to try and get in again, and maybe get turned down again. Has anyone petitioned lately and been denied?
I've been looking at other schools and it doesn't look like Bryant & Stratton has a petition process, I may be wrong but I didn't see any mention of it. Has anyone gone to Bryant & Stratton? Is it likely that credits would transfer if I decided to go for a Bachelors?
I'd appreciate any input, I work full time and have been trying to get the ball rolling so I'm trying to make a decision because I will have to quit my full time job.

DO NOT apply at bryant & Stratton!! We don't even have a Dean!!!
Well, Hemmatmahdi, you must not check your student email. I am a Bryant & Stratton student as well, and I'd like to post a correction to this thread. Early into the winter semester the nursing student body recieved an email informing us that we do, in-fact, have a dean that was recently hired, and our accreditation status is NOT in jeopardy. I am in my last semester at Bryant & Stratton and I, like many of you, scoured www.allnurses.com
for any helpful tips about my school and the nursing profession. Bryant & Stratton was a great place to go for my ADN. I feel so prepared to enter the world of nursing. I have a lot of friends that attend other nursing schools in the greater Milwaukee area, and let me just say I can definitely tell I got a great education at Bryant & Stratton. It is a farily newer program that is always evolving. It seems most of the kinks have been worked out but you'll always encounter an issue or two with any program you enroll in. We have one of the highest NCLEX pass rates in the area...this school must be doing something right!
As for the credit transfer question, all of my nursing credits from Bryant & Stratton have been accepted at UW-GREENBAY for their RN-BSN Online bridge program. Bryant & Stratton also announced recently that they are beginning a BSN program as well.
