I could not get hold of anyone but left a message. So there are no pre-requisites or entrance tests to DYC? I have an AS in science with lots of courses leading to nursing school. I will begin a pathophysiology class tomorrow and i'm thinking abaout dropping the course because i dont know if it will transfer to DYC. i have until 5pm tomorrow to drop the class. What do u think? are you still at DYC? thanks.No problem at all, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me, I wont claim I am a expert but if I don't have the information I can ask.

If you could, email me I will give you a direct number to an admissions counselor (I don't get why they didn't answer, they have always answered for me)Last edit by Silverdragon102 on Jun 8, '09 : Reason: TOS pm to member
Jun 8, '09Joined: Jun '09; Posts: 10Thank You for the information. I am currently living in Maryland do you know any easy schools to get in around MD, VA or DC?
Or any other state near by, I see the posts from everybody around here, and it is really difficult to get in any school. Do you recommend me to take the pre-requisites in the college while I look for better options??
Jun 9, '09Occupation: anything lol From: US ; Joined: Jun '09; Posts: 55; Likes: 17http://www.discovernursing.com/nursi...-waiting-lists has a few schools in the VA area with no waiting list for nursing. I would look at the schools they have listed and then google the schools to see how hard it is for admission. There are a lot of colleges that dont allow certain classes to transfer to their college (for example, my college wont allow any chemistry to be transfered) But if I were you, I would try to find a college that you think you can get into, apply, and if denied, ask them what classes you can transfer to that college for a community college. (dont forget the asking part, no sense in taking a course you will have to take over again)

The programs are fairly comparable, although I think Le Moyne's is probably a bit better because of the association with St. Joseph's, but what was a huge factor was the campus. DYC is super urban and doesn't really feel like much of a campus. LMC's while small, is beautiful, suburban and has a great campus feel and much better housing!
LMC's program is pretty competitive. I think like 12% of the applicants got in this year for the 4 year BSN option, but it's worth checking out although no more will be accepted for the fall of '09.
As for others: Howard University (DC) has a nursing program that's easy to get into. Also: Coppin State University (MD) and Norfolk State University (VA).

BS or BA degree from a regionally accredited institution
GPA of 3.0/4.0 (baccalaureate OR graduate cumulative)
GRE total score of 1000 and 4.0 on writing portion
TOEFL of 590 if non-native English speaker
1 year of biology (1st year sequence or anatomy/physiology & microbiology preferred)
1 year of chemistry (organic and inorganic)
Personal Statement (1 - 2 pages)
There are two cohorts per year, the Fall cohort and the Winter cohort. They are currently accepting applications for the Winter Cohort of 2010. The application fee is $40, which after experiencing three years of med school application fees is not bad at all. There is a wait list, but the first I ever heard of it was when the dept website was updated a few months ago. Myself, I got in with no difficulty and on my first pass, but then again I exceeded the minimum requirements for admission. If you look at the admission requirements and say, "pfft, no problem," then you should definitely consider DePaul as an option.

As long as you had a 3.0 or higher, and did (or was in the process of doing) all of your prereqs, you're good to go). They accept 50 for the fall program, and 40 for the winter.
