Mostly, I often did the normal routine, it wasFeb 15 2010Radiological Sciences
Mostly, I often did the normal routine, it was pretty much fair to get in to this university. I would say that anybody could actually get into this university pretty much. I mean it was pretty much standard most of the time.

Although, I have to say is this, Northwestern State has a great reputation that it has depending on departments such as Liberal Arts, Music Education, Psychology, Nursing, and Theater. These are the most in what students go for when they come here.

Radiologic Sciences is not really big here in NSU. I would recommend most individuals to actually start off at a two year college then head off for a four year school to get their bachelor's degree. I sort of regreted in not starting off at a community college instead. I remember that out of all of the campus, from the Natchitoches, Shreveport, and Alexandria campus COMBINED we only had about 60 students who were going to try to get into clinicals for only about 33 slots. While in the community college were I live at, 200 hundred students were competing into clinical sites. Now, what does that tell ya.

It was very difficult to get in. It took almost 3 years for them to get everything straight for me to even start to attend college
