With the recent cutbacks, we've all been made aware of how competitive it is becoming to get a nursing scholarship these days. But does anyone know about how tough it is going to be now that they are commissioning around 140-160 nurses instead of 200+? I have asked my PMS and other cadre but they don't seem to have any answers as it relates to nursing, just that "it's harder now". If anyone knows a nursing cadet who recently went AD, what were there scores like (GPA, PT, etc)? I'm a pretty good student and one of the top in PT at my battalion, but I literally have nothing to compare myself to. I want to go AD when I graduate (MAY16) and I want to start getting an idea of how realistic this is, or if I should be planning on being in the guard/reserves. Any help is much appreciated!
