I would like for everyone to suggest to me what they would do in my situation...
I am currently taking my pre-reqs at a city college in nyc. It offers a nursing program but with all of the competition and ridiculous "mandatory 4.0" you must get in order to maybe get into the program
, I just figured I'd take my pre-reqs there and once it's time to take actual nursing courses to apply to a private college.
However, I'm now having 2nd thoughts and thinking about how the city college would be way cheaper and much more manageable financially. I'm wondering "what if I can actually get in to the city college (which is WAY cheaper) nursing program. - Unfortunately they require a math course which I'm absolutely horrible at
I don't think I've ever got over a 65 or C in any Math course in my life.
Keep in mind if I take math and fail or just barely pass this ruins my gpa and possibly chances for me to apply to private schools - which I know for a fact in my area don't even require math. Also, we all know about ridiculous waitlists and sometimes the students with 4.0's don't get in because of so many applicants.
Should I take their requirement in Math and see if my grade in it is good enough to apply to their program? Should I wait to see with my gpa for the pre-reqs look like before I even take "their required math"?
What would you do?
