I applied for the generic program and submitted my application in June. I checked with the admission's coordinator by email this week, and she confirmed they received all of my requirements. Now I'm waiting for a reply! Hoping that will arrive sometime in October.

Hello, long time lurker. First time posting : )

I submitted my application in June. I am anxiously waiting to hear back. This is the worst waiting game ever! 

Me too! I’ve been constantly checking my email to see if they’ve sent anything

LOL, I searched the older posts too but didn't pay attention to the date, nice observation

hey, as far as san antonio nursing programs go, here's what I've heard:

- avoid Galen (was told this by my pre-req professors)

- UIW... super expensive, can get the same credential (RN) for much less

- Texas Lutheran... good program but also too expensive

- SAC... most affordable and long standing history

- BSHP... lots of good reviews of this program, same associates degree as SAC but more expensive, advantage is the hospital affiliation and great clinical rotations

-UTHSCSA... lots more pre requisites and application requirements but challenging program

My questions are:

Is SAC your first choice for nursing school? If yes, why? If not, why not? And where else have you applied? What are your impressions of the other programs?... I am really interested in SAC but don't know any nursing students who go there. Otherwise I'd ask them all about their experiences.
