    I am currently a student at Goodwin College. I've been going there for the past year and just got admitted into their nursing program. The school is architecturally very beautiful and comes with a river front view. It may be a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Every single professor I've had has been available to me when I've needed them most. Not to mention very few students per classroom. Tutoring is available with very flexible schedules, and the library allows free printing for your school work. I will not sugar coat the nursing program process- because it is DIFFICULT. Way harder to get in than the seminar will make you think. They only allow 67 candidates per cohort- 3 times a year. But 10 of those positions are reserved for LPN's trying to get into the program. That means there are only 57 spots available for the rest of the applicants. My best advice to you is if you need to fulfill more pre-reqs DO THEM AT GOODWIN. Why? Well because Goodwin goes by a points system and you get 1 point per class you take at Goodwin, and only up to 7 classes. So if you take 7 courses there- you already have 7 points. Next, make sure you keep you GPA high. I'm talking no less than a 3.7. Make sure you pay special attention to your A&P courses and keep all of your notes. Trust me, you're going to need them. All other points are based on what you school on the entrance exam and what degree you come in with. Masters= 4 points, Bachelors= 3, Associates= 2, and High school diploma= 1. Keep your points as high as possible. I've never heard of anyone getting in with less than 19 points. So aim for something higher just to be on the safe side. Overall, I would definitely recommend this school to anyone interested in a career offered at Goodwin College. Good luck!

    This college is set to eliminate the weaker student. You need to be in the "zone" to achieve what you want. It's up to you. Nothing will be given to you as far as grades. You must work and earn the grades.

    Get ready for the ride of your life because before you know it you will be done with school, and/or moving on to something else. Time flies when you are in college.

    School is a bit pricey, but they have a lot of scholarships available if you just ask, including matching scholarships you receive from outside sources. But with that being said, I still have yet to pay a dime to the school, and won't have to until I have graduated and start my career.
