What do you guys think?
Will I have a better chance of getting into UTAustin or in fact any college b/c I am a male and want to be a RN w/ a BSN. I have seen other colleges that give points to such applicants. Plus I'm hispanic. low income family and extremely low performing inner city hs. 1290 SAT also. TX resident

(please dont start with the AA bull, it doesnt hurt me, but it does offend me, but i'll make the most of it for now)

if you are in the top 10% (with your SAT, you definitely should be in it at a "low performing...hs"), you will get into UT by default.

no im in the top 25%. i have a job so i didnt do too well my first 3 years. actually i was in the 3rd quarter my junior year.

"no one"....was ur comment meant to demean me or actually a positive one? here in tx, especially san antonio 60K is awesome. seeing as the avg household, not person, makes only 35K a yr. anywayz even if you meant it to be bad...i dont care....as long as im happy doing what im doing i can care less about the pay.

in response to "nyguy". first of all i want to do pre-med and nursing at the same time. primarily i get to see 2 aspects of a doctors job; both his and his staff. 2nd i still get to help people out directly. 3rd, nurses are always in demand. 4th even though i might not like the idea of becoming a MD afterall, i will still have a real degree to fall back on. so thats why i want to become a nurse. its kinda like my my fallback if i dont become a MD or PA. oh and i hear that there are many scholarships available to nursing students and even special ones for male nursing students.

Nurses with 5+ years of experience make around $60K where I live.

I'm not sure how that's demeaning.

By Diggler on Saturday, January 04, 2003 - 12:23 am: Edit

sorry about that "no one" but seeing as many of these ivy-goers are spoiled by daddy and mommy i thought you were one of those who saw 60K as s h i t pay, just as they see a 1400 as a s h i t score. sorry. yeah nurses do make good money for what they do. here in san antonio a first year RN with a bsn will make about $25 per hr.

umm you do realize those "stupid" doctors that work hard can make as much as 1 mil a year in private practice and even higher. Also, just cause your a doc doesn't mean you have to work like crazy, many in academics take home like 250-300k and just write papers and go home at 5 or 6 everyday. As a doctor its upto you, if you want to work hard you can go all out and make like 1.5 million a year, if you don't care and just have a nice small clinic with a few patients and see a few patients in the hospital you will still make like 250 and have a good life...and I'm talking like something high like cardiologist...

if your aomsething like a dentist, you make like 200-250k and go home early every day

Most, if not all, nursing schools do not want students that are planning on changing careers after graduation (i.e. medicine). With the national nursing shortage they rather admit someone that will stay in the field. I know this b/c I am an associate professor at a large med school in the southwest and often sit in both medical and nursing admission committees.

By Diggler on Friday, January 17, 2003 - 01:05 pm: Edit

well if i dont get into med school i want to be an Advanced Nurse Practioner

Sure Diggler or a PA. Just make sure not to make a big deal about wanting to use nursing school as a "stepping stone" to a non-nursing profession.

I'm out to be a male nurse too. Actually I'm persuing an LPN liscense, so I can work through college and earn my physician asst. degree. I know a lot of cool guy nurses, and I even party with some of them. People that think all dude nurses are gay should check this out. I have a buddy and he's a registered nurse, he can funnel 7 beers before he takes a breath. Thats more than our buddies that work at the tatoo shop and mechanics we know that think they're tough s h i t. Point: Guy nurses aren't pussies just because they wear scrubs.
