    Are any of you current UF students? Just wondering if there was some way we could check our ISIS to see updates.

    I'm a current UF student and I have no idea about anything. They haven't really given us much information to go on.

    I am a current UF student and I don't believe you can check Isis... Last year it was just a waiting game until we received letters in the mail. Hopefully they send them out soon... I am a little concerned because they said they would send them out at the end of February which likely means we will get them the first week of march, which is during spring break and ill be 3 hours away in my hometown... So in that case if you guys get anything the first week in march, can you post? Ill want to drive back here to check my mail! Haha

    I didn't think there was one either, but so many schools have online updates I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

    One thing that I noticed today was that the regular (non accelerated) BSN application deadline is March 1st for fall of 2013. This may just be my runaway deductive reasoning. Logic tells me however that the CON is trying to have our decisions out before the traditional program deadline so that they are not inundated. If this is the case then I feel more confident that our decisions will come sooner rather than later. Last year's class had to wait more than a month longer than they anticipated for decisions, hopefully we all can avoid that!

    Good news...

    I have a good friend who spoke with a CON professor & they said to expect to hear something just before spring break...

    The last day of classes before spring break is March 1st (which is a Friday)...So I'm assuming it means either earlier that week, March 1st, or 2nd...since they dont deliver mail on Sundays.

    It's getting closer....fingers crossed

    Want to play a game? This waiting can be tough, and I want to get to know you all! Whether we get in now, or years down the road, we will all be nurses out in the healthcare field together--with a little bit of persistence. I think it would be cool to get to know you all, especially since we may end up being potential cohort classmates!
