Hello all,

I though It would be better posting in the Colorado forum to get more views from people who actually have applied or already in school.

Here is my dilemma, I am from Atlanta, GA. I have all my pre-req completed with a 3.8 gpa average, I have all A's in my science classes and one B in English.

However, My fiance wants to move to Colorado, but when I look up the schools they are stating that you have to wait 7 years to apply if you have a possession charge. I have one for Marijuana, it is a misdemeanor. But that's the only thing I have on my record. I am so stuck and don't know what to do. I really want to go with him, but I am thinking of just staying here. I will have to wait an extra two years to even apply. The lady told me to try universities or Bsn programs but I think they follow the same stipulations. Is there any out of state school closer to Denver that might be worth the commute?

That's what I thought but I called one of the community colleges and they told me, since it's still illegal by federal it still counts. I will post the link.
