    Nope. I got a cheap state school. Why go to a big shot university if I can get the same education at a cheaper price. :]

    I know someone at Northeastern. She is a nursing major, and really is enjoying it as far as I know.

    Hi! I am a sophomore in Quinnipiac's nursing program, and I love it here. unfortunately, i have to transfer because I am just realizing how expensive it is...and since I live in Mass, I am also realizing that I would rather to go a school close to Boston so I can work at a hospital in Boston.
    So if I had any advice for you, it would be go to a school that you/your family can afford without trouble and one that is near where you live/want to work. I am hoping to transfer to Salem State if i get in because they have a good program and its near Boston.
    If you get into Umass Amherst's program, UPenn, Northeastern, or BC, I would suggest go to one of those definitely! Those are amazing schools and have some of the best nursing programs in the country pretty much. I know someone who goes to Northeastern and BC and they love it. Northeastern is awesome because they get to do co-op, but you go to school an extra year. when you do co-op at the best hospitals in boston, you will most likely get a job at one of them when you graduate.
    Other than those schools, which are worth the money, I would go to a state school over quinnipiac especially if you live in mass. I thought about applying to Fitchburg but didn't like the area, so i chose Salem.
    Sorry that was so long but hope it helped!

    I am applying to most of those schools. There is a big discrepancy between UPENN and FSU and Salem State, I wouldn't apply to Penn unless you're sure you really have a shot. It's an ivy.
