Write an essay and turn in a transcript, thatAug 18 2013Radiological Sciences
Write an essay and turn in a transcript, that is all you need to get accepted to the program. Easy at first, but every other step was a drag. They sent me back and forth across the street to the wrong office, I guess they don't believe in phones or communication. I had to constantly call to find out my status, they never sent me my acceptance letter, I had to pick it up in person! They claim they mailed it out to me, so why did they have it sealed and ready to hand to me?

If your a military vet don't expect financial aid to be easy. Those people are so lost... they will try to charge you for late payments when they haven't even contacted VA for the payment until the drop date, making you look like an idiot when you call VA and they say "we're waiting on approval from the institution to release payment". They need to get more organized and will still bill you for that late fee. They don't have a VA liaison either so watch them carefully.

The cost is too much to go here. I would have expected more from a private institution.
Also, when you graduate, don't expect to get your diploma in the mail....I waited 3 weeks and finally got tired and called. Apparently they had not approved me for graduation....mind you I already walked at commencement, took my board exams and was a registered radiographer by then....They at that point decided to approved me and proceeded to tell me it would take a few weeks more because the university was out of diploma paper.... are you kidding me!! That was the final straw for me. I will never be going back to this place for anything else.
The reputation they carry is just a facade to charge you 2x more than any other college.

If you can handle all the disorganization of getting in, and don't mind being overcharged to receive mediocre education (that you can get at a community college for a fraction of the cost) and if you don't mind not finding a job right out of school, then this is the place for you. I would only recommend this place to someone still living at home with their parents with no financial obligations. If you are married, or living on your own, this will be a hard ship to sail, but it is possible.

To be blunt, this college is for high achieversNov 16 2011Nursing
To be blunt, this college is for high achievers. If you are not a self-critical A to high B student I suggest you choose a community college. The nursing program is very competitive and the classes are content rich. Do not plan to work while you are in nursing school. If you do, make sure it is part time, definitely less than 30 hours a week. You simply WILL NOT do well. This program requires TONS of self teaching. You class lectures are simply reviews of online lectures you are required to listen to and will be tested on. If you are former military, you will encounter a familiar environment. This program has a low graduation rate, but if you make it through you WILL have no problem with the NCLEX and finding a job. There are a lot of people in my class who should not have wasted their money as they did not put forth the effort necessary. Quite frankly, they really don't belong in the field. I personally feel all programs should be this hard to weed out the folks who enter the field and give it a bad name. If you are big on social life and want to play house with your mate, get that out of your system before you waste your money. Be prepared to have NO LIFE until you graduate. I don't think the college is perfect and I have valid complaints about it, but I also have similar complaints about my previous colleges. Overall, its a fine place to go to school. The campus is clean, safe, and they have a dress code. It's a very conservative environment. If you think college is a place to get dress like a stripper and display your business, its best you attend a local community college.
I had no issues with getting in, in factMar 16 2011Nursing
I had no issues with getting in, in fact I was over qualified. If you so choose to enter this school, get all of your prerequisites done at a community college.
