Does anyone know anything about NOVA? I'm thinking about applying there. Any insight about this school is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. :)

All I know is that it's private (ie expensive) and their stats are usually lower than most schools. They're a relatively new program.

I was told by someone that they had accreditation issues in the past. Does anyone know about this or how I can find out more objective information about this?

I believe they are accredited now, but I'm not sure what, if any, issues they had in getting there. I would recommend visiting if you're at all serious about going there -- take a tour, talk to the admission counselors, students. They have an open house sometime in the fall around now that I went to last year that was pretty good. I thought their facilities were nice -- brand new in the last 5 or so years, but I didn't get a good vibe about the place for some reason. I talked to a recent graduate who works in the area where I live now and he liked it, he did well enough to go on for a specialty residency (they can be pretty competitive) after he graduated, if that says anything.
