Got your pm, but I can't pm you back :T In regards to your question on why I wanted to attend Pace, well when I was deciding on where to apply, I picked schools in Cali and in NY. There aren't many schools in Cali with accerlerated BSN/MS programs. Both places are cities I have family in. There aren't many accelerated programs in either city. I applied to a total of 7 schools. Pace is the first one to send me a decision. I originally wanted to apply to the NY campus, but they only have a fall start date and the application deadline had already passed, so I opted for the Westchester campus. Essentially, I wanted to go to a school in a big city with lots of people and easy transportation.
Do you have any insight on why so many people drop out of the 1 year program? Is it because of teachers or because they are not use to the accelerated pace of the system? What background do most people who attend the one year program come from? I'm going to graduate with a B.S. in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Medical Microbiology from UC Davis. We are on a quarter system so our curriculum is very fast as well, with exams and papers almost every week. Do you think with my background I will be ready?
I really appreciate your insight. :D:D
