Vanderbilt Pre-Specialty (for non-RNs) MSN 2013 - page 9

Hi All, There doesn't seem to be a thread yet for pre-specialty Vandy applicants (the thread going now seems to consist mostly of grad entry), so I thought I'd start one! Any other pre-specialty... Read More

    Oh sorry I misinterpreted what you said!

    It's okay I was being confusing as well! I was getting the impression (from other threads too) that people were expecting an aid number in the envelope, and that just wouldn't make sense! But yes, now that we're done applying for schools, it's onto FAFSA, school aid, and scholarships! At least we'll be busy while we wait.

    Columbia letters went out today--got in for PMHNP! Anyone else apply there? Vandy is my first choice, but it feels great to know I am accepted to at least one program, and a great one at that!

    Is there anyone out there who did Not get a financial aid packet? I'm kind of getting concerned because I didn't receive one.

    Thanks Sarah! Congrats to you too! I definitely want to wait and hear from Vanderbilt though. I'm a little worried about the timing of it all.

    Congratulations, Sarah and Hannah!!

    KoKe, I also received the financial aid packet. I can't remember exactly when it arrived, but it was postmarked on 01/30.

    I got my financial aid "packet" too. Just 2 sheets of paper and one saying that I will get more financial aid info sent to my email. I guess they encourage everybody to have their FAFSA done and out of the way before we find out if we're admitted. I completed my FAFSA a few days ago. I always fill it out as soon as I've finished filing my tax return.

    The tone of the financial aid packet seemed like they want us to start getting used to the fact that Vandy is so expensive, so it's probably better to start considering the financial aspect ASAP. I know that I have to make sure that I have all my financial aid figured out before I find out if I get in, because if I'm accepted and have to pay my admission deposit I want to know if I can definitely afford to attend there.

    Congrats to those of you that got into Columbia!!!

    Hi all! I also am having a hard time trying to figure out if and how I will visit for the open house. I applied and interviewed for PMHNP, and am seriously hoping to get into VUSN! I found out yesterday and today that I got accepted into the PMHNP direct entry programs at Columbia and MGH, and am obviously very happy about both of those, but am feeling a little stressed about timing now.

    Just wanted to introduce myself and see how anyone else is navigating these decision deadlines and/or the visiting weekend.

    Thank you! I'm also not sure what to do about visiting Vanderbilt. I know if I have to choose between Columbia and Vanderbilt I'd definitely like to see both schools and learn more about the programs before deciding.

    Can someone tell me where I can find the information about the visiting day in March?
