Thanks so much for the great information. I'm surprised that they didn't have more of a turnout, but I'm wondering if either people don't know about the program or if the high cost and and requirements steer people away.
It sounds as though they have pretty high standards for their applicants. I know when I had spoken to the dean's assistant she said that your application is only based upon your GPA and HESI scores.
I wonder why their program is so much longer? I know with UT theirs is around 18 months I believe because they attend during the summer as well. I'm not sure why this program would be longer if they include the summers.
As far as the financial aid I was able to find on their website that if you transfer in with a high GPA they have a $10,000 scholarship and if you are a member of Phi Theta Kappa I think it's like a $3,500 or $5,000 scholarship, can't remember right off hand. But even with that assistance it is very expensive.
Even though they take less applicants it also looks as though they have less people applying, so I think that would actually work in your favor. As with UT Houston they have 1000+ applicants every application period, so even though they can afford to take more students, you also have way more competition.
Well that's encouraging information. I was going to try to take Micro this summer, but I got in the class on the first night and realized that with the other courses that I'm taking this semester that there wouldn't be any way I could keep up with everything and come out with an awesome grade. So I'm having to push it back to the fall possibly. I'm trying to weigh out my science courses over the next few semesters, which I know is going to take me longer, but I'm down to so few courses I really want to make sure that my science GPA is pretty high.
Did they say much about the pre requisites? I know she had said that they go over all of that at the information session.
Thanks again for the information!
