According to her, not enough students elected to switch campuses so some were picked at random to transfer and not given the option to stay. When they complained, they were given the run around, but the girl was told by one of her professors that GS has made a huge push to boost enrollment in Savannah which is why they've spent lots of money on radio and tv ads for the Savannah campus and waived all out of state tuition for that campus only. According to her professor, GS wants the Statesboro and Savannah campuses to be about equal in size, with specific colleges located at each and thinks that a lot of students might be forced to transfer. I was pretty shocked when I heard this. Have y'all heard anything similar?
    Students who desire to go into Nursing take a number of electives in a pre-Nursing program along with their core undergraduate curriculum, and then have to apply for admission into the actual School of Nursing for their last two years. Admission into the SON is VERY competitive.

    The Statesboro campus Associate Chair for Nursing told me on the Nursing application process students can state their desire for Statesboro campus, Armstrong campus, or both. As mentioned Statesboro campus has historically (and will continue to be the case post consolidation) accepted less Nursing students (50 per cohort) due to class and clinical space limitations. So it would stand to reason that as has always has been the case, a student has a higher likelihood of being accepted into the Nursing program on the Armstrong campus simply due to the higher number of students admitted each cohort. This student has experienced what many prospective Nursing students have for years. It's simply a numbers game.

    What that means is she may not qualify to be one of the 50 on Statesboro campus but can qualify to be one of the 100+ on Armstrong campus.

    The story doesn't even sound credible.

    It does seem to be following the same trajectory as a lot of news stories that begin on social media and then are carried by the mainstream.

    Learned to dance at RUE 21. Heard they offer lessons for every pair of ripped faded jeans purchased there.
