I'm trying to decide between the two schools, but I need some advice and/or perspective (especially if you are a student or have been at one of these schools).

I live in conway, AR (about 30 minutes from LR). I just bought a house (aka don't want to move) and will graduate with my BSN in May 2010 (yay).

Options:

#1 - ASU:
- Spend first 4 months at ASU, then commute one day per week for rest of school (3hr drive for a total of 6hrs/day).
- Majority of clinicals in local Conway hospital (6 blocks from my new house)
- Need graduate level inferential statistics (for what i dont know)
- 2yr minimum of CCU experience, but dates of graduation and application deadline force 3yrs.
- Small class (harder to get in?)
- VERY cheap

#2 - TX Wesleyan:
- Spend 2wks at beginning of fall and spring semesters then classes via live 2-way video at hospital in LR (30min drive)
- Majority of clinicals at hospital(s) in LR
- Need college level chemistry within three years of admission (which means i'll have to REtake a chemistry just to have it recent)
- 1yr minimum of CCU experience, but dates of graduation and application deadline force 2yrs.
- Bigger class (easier to get in?)
- "Normally" expensive

It seems like neither is just great for me - both are about 65% convenient.
