hi! well u posted a while ago, but if your still looking for a nursing school to apply to, and since it seems that the nursing schools in the US are so competitive, how about applying somewhere abroad?
i just graduated from the American University of Beirut in lebanon, i know you must be thinking i must be crazy to suggest this since we just had a mini war and parts of lebanon were devasted but overall lebanon is doing quiet well and is stable now and many americans such as myself LOVE living here. plus the American University of Beirut would definelty accept you and furthermore, the nursing school here has a VERY good reputation and has been opened for 100 yrs. it is also accredited with the New York education department so you wont have problems with NCLEX at all.
also youll have lots of fun while studying since beirut is definelty a hot spot for great fun like going to the beach skiing and clubbing! i worked really hard in the nursing school here its really tough. but worth it! so just a thouhgt, why dont you explore options abroad? anyway good luck and all!
