Guys, ignore this person. When deciding which school(s) to apply to, take a look at what fits best into your lifestyle, what you can afford, where you feel comfortable, and what the school's NCLEX pass rates are. If GSU is where you want to go, then definitely apply there knowing that it's a good school, a respected school, has good NCLEX pass rates, and that you will have a good shot at getting hired after graduation.
Oh, and just so you know, as a recent GSU grad, I was hired into a critical care unit at a major hospital here in Atlanta. Had I graduated from "a top ranked program" you know how much more money I would be making right now? Not. One. Penny. More.
This is an exciting and nerve wracking time for you guys--don't let anyone take away from your excitement. I truly wish you all the best of luck!!
