    All schools are competitive. However, Baylor and UT have reputations of being even more difficult to get into than most. I know that Baylor interviewed 40 and accepted 14. I cannot speak to other programs as I only applied to Baylor and was accepted.

    I wanted to add Barry University to this list. They have five clinical regions and it appears that you select one of the five and complete all your required clinicals there. You can also take your didactic courses via Interactive Video Conferencing from the five clinical regions. Florida is looking better and better!

    I want to add Wolford College to the list

    The first 12 months are in Naples, FL for all the didactic coursework. Then the latter 16 months you select either Naples or Tampa as your clinical hub and complete the clinicals there.

    Northeastern University in Boston tries to keep you at the same facility for all of your clinical. There may be an occasional rotation to another site if you are not getting enough of a certain type of case at your facility but all of the clinical sites are pretty much in the same general vicinity.

    University of South Florida keeps everyone in the Tampa area. It's a new program though, what have you all heard about it? I'm going there for my BSN currently, and I hope they'll have an info session at some point, but I'm looking for opinions from people not affiliated with the school as well.

    I am currently attending St John's School of Nurse Anesthesia at Missouri State. All clinicals are at one site. In addition, the tuition for all anesthesia classes is free and they provide free health insurance for you and your family. I have to pay out of state tuition and total cost is approx. $10,000 for the entire program. Cost of living in Springfield is low. Also, Springfield is a nice place to raise a family. Good luck with your search!
