Some Additonal Advice
1. Applying to 3 or 4 nursing programs is about the norm for Aggies, you can
    add more to spread the wealth or less to zero in on a couple of select
    schools.
2. Every nursing program has a hoop that they want you to jump through. You
    have to decide which hoops you are willing to jump through.Some hoops are
    in the form of extra required prerequisites, entrance tests, or application
    procedures.
3. At a nursing program website you are either a Bacc2 or Second Degree BSN
    if you are going to have a four year degree prior to nursing school.Or, you are
    a Generic Plan or BSN if you are not going to have a four year degree prior to
    starting nursing school.You are not a “Graduate” and you are not usually a
    “Transfer” student.
