A friend of mine went to Linfield. She had a previous degree (with a 2.3-ish GPA). Prereq GPA 3.8-ish Graduated in Dec 2006, went to work for a small hospital here in the Portland area in Jan 07. In March 08, she was given the opportunity to step up and take a position as the "Education Coordinator", working alongside the manager, another Linfield grad. (Who had a previous degree, and had been a nurse for less than 2 years prior to becoming the manager.) She says that Linfield doesn't necessarily have anything to do with it, other than the program helped prepare her to reach to her full potential, and never rule anything out.
I wish I had realized this when I was in school: Any program is going to be what you make of it. Never rule anything out.
