Anyone else preparing for fall 2012? I'm such a dork about this. I've been planning every single little step of this.
I'll be submitting my university application in October/November. I'm not worried about getting accepted to the University in general because I have a 3.8 right now, provided A&P2 and micro together don't kill me. Then I'll be sitting for the A2 by January (want to finish A&P2 first) and applying to the BSN program by January/February. Unfortunately the CC I'm in doesn't offer one of the pre-reqs for the university, but I can take that over next summer.
Anyone else with similar plans?

JHU is ungodly expensive, add the commute to and from, as well as to the clinical sites + parking for both and tuition is just the tip of the iceberg. Wait it out and apply to UMB @ SG.
I'm aware of the JHU expense and although I'll apply for their scholarship
, the chances of me getting in and getting their half price tuition scholarship are slim. I've been saving up for nursing school since I decided to go. I'm in a unique position as I work in a well paid career right now (which I hate but that's another story). By the time August rolls around, I'll have enough money in my savings account to pay the tuition for JHU (unless they decide to raise it significantly).
UMD is a crazy bargain but again, I could wait to apply and still not get in. UMD gets a lot of applicants and I think I'm competitive but who knows. No guarantees I'll get into JHU either but I'd end up becoming a nurse a whole year earlier if I get into JHU in the fall than if I wait out for UMD for the following spring. And even though I'd love to go to UMD, if I get to started in my new career a whole year earlier, it'd be worth the price difference.
Now if I don't get into JHU, then I'll reapply and apply to UMD and possibly another school. And I'll retake my chemistry as well which I don't plan to do as it'd be the last pre-req I'd need if I went to UMD and JHU doesn't require it.
