This is my first post, and although I've been a long-time lurker, I'm not terribly familiar with the forums so I hope I've posted this topic in the correct sub-forum. If not, my apologies in advance.
A while back I decided entering the medical field would be something of interest to me, but I'm still very undecided on what I'd like to accomplish. I know nursing is of great interest to me, so at the minimum I'd like to attend a nursing program and potentially return for my masters. This year I'm finishing up all my pre-reqs at my 2 Year Institution (AP I+II, Chem, Microbiology, etc) and plan on transferring into a 4 Year Institution for my bachelors.
My college GPA thus far has been 3.55, however, I never took the SATs or ACT. I believe that most colleges do not require scores for those tests if you already hold an associate's degree, though. I've made a list of schools I'd like to apply to, and if anyone here is familiar with any of them or is an alumni, any insight, advice, tips, or thoughts on my chances of admission would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
The College of New Jersey
UNC Chapel Hill
Thomas Jefferson University
Also, will not having any EC's hinder me from getting into a nursing program? I regret not joining any clubs or volunteering, but I've been employed at UPS for some time now and night shifts make it so half my day is shot.
Thanks for reading and hope everyone here has a great day
