A great small school! I was worried about going to a Catholic college because I am not Catholic, but everyone is welcoming and so nice. I loved the school, the teachers, and the people.
Review University of St. Francis - Illinois
The process of getting into the program was amazingly simple. Following the criteria was straight forward and allowed for me to easily transition from one school to the next. I did not encounter any specific difficulties. I would have to say the most important criteria for admission would be TEAS exam scores. It is a state wide set entrance exam and if one does not pass, one can not get into the program. As far as tips go, I would be more than confident in saying that anyone can do it, as long as they work hard. This program is not just handing you your admission. They require the GPA, ACT/SAT, and TEAS requirements to be met. Don't be afraid to meet with counselors if you have any concerns. If you are a transfer student, look specifically into the college classes required for that specific program. Overall, Saint Francis is open to any questions!
The class size very class on average there are about 17 students in each class, but of course in the science lecture there are more than 17 students. Because the class size is so small, students can better interact with professor. For example a student can stop a professor during his or her lecture to ask a question if they don't understand. Then if the student still isn't getting the information the student can stay after class and ask the professor questions.
