Hello there: I’m a high school junior now and I am looking into some colleges that I can apply to in the southern California region next year. I took the SAT and got a 1850 (580 Reading 620 Math 650 Writing), but I do want to raise this score.
I thought about the Cal State nursing schools in my area, but I know that the budget crisis in the state is affecting admissions and classes, so I am leaning towards the private and UC schools. So far, I’m considering visiting and applying to Mt Saint Mary’s College, Azusa Pacific, UCLA, and UC Irvine for next year. Which of these schools are the most strongest in nursing? I heard that private colleges have the most strong alumni and career networks, so should I consider public or private schools?
