Do you think that it is really alot easier to get into Penn through the Nursing Program (especially if one is male)? If one gets in, then one can simply transfer after one year, right?

It's true that it's easier, but you're going to have the convince the applications committee and your interviewer that you're genuinely interested in nursing, or they'll see right through you.

I'm certain they come across this situation all the time.

You can't transfer from general Penn admissions to Wharton, but other than that you can change your major.

Yeah you can transfer from school of arts and sciences to Wharton. The only hassle is that you have to "re-apply" to wharton. That means submitting your transcript and writing more freakin' essays. I am a part-time student at Penn, majoring in Poly Scie, and am having a great time, regardless of Wharton.

I wouldnt try it if I were you. Nursing requires an interview on campus. They'll identify you as a fraud pretty easily--you aren't the first person to whom this thought has occured.

But if they dont, after your first year of nursing, the courses you will have taken probably would not transfer into the other degree programs successfully. Go take a look at the nursing curriculum. I suspect that if you were allowed to transfer, it would take you an extra year to graduate.
