I am currently finishing up my pre-requisite required for this program but i have a few questions...

1. How hard is it to get into this program?
-My state (Hawaii) offers only ONE like this and its super competetive that students retake classes that they got a B in, just to get an A. It says on the application that you only need a 3 something but in reality, they wont even consider your application unless you have a 4.0

2. How far away is this to Lawton?

3. Should I dorm, if not..what areas should i find a place to live?

Thanks!

You might mention what program you are wanting to get into. In any case, it's a good idea in OK to get an associate's degree because if you do so then any University in OK has to transfer all your hours. If you don't have the associate degree then they may pick and choose what to accept.

Thanks for that info, Heather. Anna will be starting her college career at OCCC, so it's good to know she should get her Associates degree before she transfers.

don't go to wosc nursing, it is an awful program the instructors have no respect for students or each other, there is constant drama, and everyone in my graduating class hates it I wish someone would have told me how bad it isIt gets progressively worse every year, this year if you don't make a 76 on the final regardless if you are passing or not, you will not graduate. I don't know anyone in my class that would tell someone to go to this program



run run run as fast as you can from wosc, try occc I have heard good things about them
