Is TCU or UT Arlington better for traditional BSN as far as the college experience (diversity, dorms, campus life) and ranking of the programs. I am not really concerned with cost as I will only attend if I receive good financial, but currently I am just interested in whether or not theses schools are worth applying to. :spin:

I am a UTA grad so I'm a little biased. You will get nothing at TCU that you can't get at UTA for thousands and thousands of dollars less.

I am a current TCU nursing student (graduating in December!!!). It was pretty easy to get into TCU (I've heard its kinda hard to get into UTA since it costs alot less!). I would apply to every school you can. I do like it here at TCU, but they do make you take a bunch of BS classes, and its really expensive (~13,000 per semester). The nursing staff are really good here though. Just apply and see where you get in, then go from there. Good luck!!!

Nursing school admissions are fiercely competitive in the DFW area. My former coworker recently was rejected from TCC's program with a 4.0 grade point average because so many people applied. She ended up having to attend the nursing program at Southwestern Adventist University.
Therefore, it's not really about which school of nursing is better. Rather, the realistic question is "Which school of nursing will take me?"
Good luck to you!
