    did you say yes? I did, but I have this feeling we won't hear about that cohort for a while either. I feel like it's a last minute spot filler and I am scared to be left behind, without sufficient time to prepare, etc. And Financial Aid? Hello? I mean, it's going to take some time to get that many thousands of dollars together. I'm scared.

    I also said yes. It would be so sweet if I could start nursing school early. I assumed that we would hear pretty quickly if we got in or not because of getting together the finances. I thought it was a good sign when I got that email last friday but now I don't know. I am also scared. It's a lot of money!!

    I too am having my application reviewed for possibly starting this Fall also, but wow, it's a month away. I hope they let us know soon so we can run around mindless for a month trying to get everything together. Doing everything in less than a month is extreme, especially for financial reasons as stated above and giving my jobs notice. But, this is our dream career, so you have to do what you have to do.

    Has anyone called or emailed asking about when we will find out? I know it hasn't been that long since they sent out the email but it would be nice to know when we can expect to know. Are you guys taking out private loans? I've been doing a wee bit of research. Medcap from Wells Fargo for medical professionals looks promising.This wait is so stressful. I am pretty sure its giving me gray hair (i found my first one today).

    We aren't expected to hear anything back until the middle of October. I don't know about loans yet. I know you can use federal loans too. I have the military paying for 20k of my school and I guess I'll have to take out more money to cover the rest. But in the end it will all be worth it!!
