    I'm not exactly sure where you are, but if you're in VA or close to it, you may want to research Marymount University or George Mason University. Sorry, I don't know anything about CUA's program.

    Yep im in VA and I got accepted into Marymount for spring 2007 but declined them to go to another school & had to end up leaving there for a family medical emergency so now im back at square one. I did reapply to marymount for fall 07 & am waiting to hear back from them in june. I am applying to CUA for this fall but dont know my chances of getting in this late even though the admissions cycle is still open. I haven't looked into any cc's only because I don't live in northern virginia or around the metropolitan area.

    Hey guys. I just heard from Marymount, and I'll be starting this August. I was just wondering about you guys and how your search was going. Hope all is well.

    I started in the 2nd degree program at CUA, but had to scale back. If you are an older student, over 25, they tend to give you a hard time. I did graduate from there, but I was withdrew from the accelerated program to the regualr program. If you have been a professional in some other field before nursing, they tend to look down on you. It is still a great school, I think I learned a lot, and was academically challenged.

    Anyone out there familiar with Marymounts Accelerated second degree program? I'm scheduled to begin in Jan and am getting cold feet. I want to keep my weekend receptionist job which gives me plenty of study/down time. I've heard a few scary stories about people not being able to handle the work load. I'm now debating whether or not I should attend the community college diploma program. Finish with little to no debt but no degree and in 2.5 years as opposed to 1.5 years with a degree. Any suggestions?? Thanks!
