BYU is hard--You will work your tail off even in classes that look easy. I have a friend that got accepted through the back door (see below) wanted to be a nurse but BYU's program is so competitive she ended up switching to dietetics. Fine, but now she's in chemistry with the pre-meds, many of whom were admitted to Ivy League and the class is graded on a forced curve. Can't help but think she'd be halfway through the nursing program if she'd chosen BYUI.
BYU was a great experience. I was able to get my terminal degree at an east coast university and my BYU MS was very highly regarded. I encourage students to get out of Provo and use their skills in the real world.
