I've decided to take the plunge as well and am looking at having my kit in by August 2013. I have my RN license already and I graduate from my RN-BSN program in May. I've busted my butt to make sure I have a great GPA and to get done in under a year. I am prior USMC as well, with 5 years AD. I'm really excited and nervous to see if I'm accepted at the end of the year. Good luck to you!
