Because I have too much time on my hands (not!) I did a little research.
First of all, the Apollo Group is the parent of UOP so in that small way, the story makes sense. However, the Apollo group has nothing whatsoever to do with GCU other than several of the higher ups (CEO's) etc, came from working at the Apollo Group before going and working with GCU. So perhaps some policies changed, but they were not bought out by the Apollo Group, that I can find anyway. All investor relations documents online with the SEC say that Grand Canyon U is owned by Grand Canyon Education.
I also looked for law suits involving GCU and/or Apollo Group. I did find two similar law suits relating to the Whistle Blower law (filed against each, but completely different suits) and some financial aid class action law suit - but no law suit connecting the two. Granted, I spent about 32 seconds on this research, but still - if there were a 15 million dollar law suit because of the joining of two entities -I think it would have come up in the first 3 pages of google searching.
in other posts, the OP indicates several contradictory things:
He/She also indicates that they would be willing to go ANYWHERE there isn't a waiting list AND The OP also says they would NOT be willing to leave Arizona because the 'merger' wiped him out financially -
BUT the OP also says he/she has no debt.
He/She is also extremely smart and ready for medical school, AND also has a learning disability.
The OP has found that GPA doesn't matter for getting into school, but experience does and he/she doesn't have the right kind of experience.
The OP has found that GPA is the ONLY thing that matters so they can't get into school.
I can't possibly make out what's going on here other than there is SOME reason the OP can't get into nursing school and some reason why he/she obtained 40 credits worth of F's for 'no reason'. 40 credits in 2 semesters? I mean, I know it can be done, but it's not usual.
OP - I don't know what's happening with you but it's obvious that you want to go to school somewhere. The rest of it I will take with a grain of salt. I apologize if you think I'm being harsh here - but your posts have been contradictory. But, assuming that you are willing to go anywhere - Here in PA, a 3.2 will get you into a state school with no waiting list. Several parts of the state are pretty good with the job market too. So, if you are truly willing to go anywhere...PA is at least one answer. I'm sure there are a ton of other states in the USA where a 3.2 will get you into nursing school. If Arizona isn't the place - move on. It's a big country.
Lastly, I can't believe I just spent 15 minutes writing this post at 10:30 at night...I know I had better things to do!
