I have stayed home with my kids for years and, like several other people on here, it was NEVER mentione how important it was to be partnered. The first time I applied I was denied and was devastated. I was angry that I basically HAD to get a job to be accepted, but it came down to what I needed to do to fulfill my dream of being a nurse. (Now it actually states that partnered students get chosen first or whatever, but 18 months ago that wasn't spoken or written anywhere!) Anyway, it's worked out for the best, and 3 attempts later I'm finally accepted! Anyway, to those of you that received misinformation, I was in your shoes not too long ago. I've shed MANY tears throughout this crazy journey, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. I am very blessed to have family close by to help with the kiddos and a very supportive husband. I would have lost my mind if not for them!I know it's an eye-roller to hear, but DON'T GIVE UP! Use this forum to learn everything the advisors failed to mention, keep asking questions, and do whatever you have to to get in. Retake science classes, get a job in a hospital (it's kinda cool because I already know which areas I DON'T want to work in haha!), whatever it takes. I'm proof that it will pay off!!! Good luck to everyone!!!!
