i applied to South University. they are accredited but a newer school, so they have slightly less competitive admissions. plus, the school is private so while it is more expensive, you have the same chance as all the other students. it doesn't matter if you are in state or out of state. the school is small, but it seems as though they really care about the students. good luck with your decisions. also, applying to instate schools may make the process easier b/c it is really hard to get in an out of state school. well, i hope this helps.
I applied to Samford, South, Mercer, NOVA (west palm beach location), and LECOM (sending it overnight on Monday). I've interviewed at NOVA, and they said 4-6 wks so I should hear from them within the next 2 weeks. I called South and they said the dean was reviewing my app. If I could take 1 semester off my transcripts from 99 I could have a 3.8ish....but oh well. I'm sure everone would like to remove some. Good luck!
