Fresh from graduation from high school I applied to three schools of journalism. One is the third leading journalism school in North America and not only was I accepted there, but received the offer of an entrance scholarship
. But, it was a 24 hour drive away from home. I was accepted to the second one as well but it was even further away. The third one, only four hours away from home, did not accept me. I was MAD when I discovered a couple of months later that another student who happened to be a minority but who barely graduated was accepted to that third school. This person BARELY graduated while I was an honour roll student with four advanced literature courses under my belt with a trilogy as my senior class project, had worked at the local paper for three years and had my own weekly high school column at the same paper for two years. All of that was on my application. But, I didn't get in and this other person did. She flunked out at the end of the first semester. I wasn't surprised. This was my experience (although I still find it frustrating, I am glad that I didn't head down that road or I wouldn't be about to graduate from nursing school now and journalism - although I am great at writing, journalism is a cut-throat, have no feelings profession and I would have gone crazy).
This was my experience. Take it for whatever you think it is worth. I wish you luck. If you don't get in the first time around, keep trying. You have worked this long and hard so you must have the desire to be a good nurse and goodness knows we need more of them!
