    Yrs it wasn't bad at all. It was one faculty member and 3 applicants. She asked 3 questions and then assigned our essay. I was nervous and there was no reason to be. It wasn't as intense as job interviews. Do y'all know anybody that already attends the school? I guess this is the waiting period which is so intense. Every second I'm waiting for a letter. I hope everyone did well and we can be attending the same time :-)
    Sounds just like mine, except in-person! i agree - def was not as intense as a job interview. i don't know anyone who goes to JU.. however, my sis (RN) used to work at Shands and knew a number of JU grads who all had nothing but positive experiences while in school. apparently JU also has a very good reputation (the program itself as well as their graduates) with the hospitals/facilities in the surrounding areas. i hate the waiting game!

    Hi fellow BSN hopefuls...I had my interview for the Second Degree program two weeks ago. I think it went well, but who knows! My concern is more so regarding my grades. Wondering if anyone knows when we are supposed to get our acceptance or denial letters? I can barely stand the wait anymore!

    Yes the waiting game is no fun at all. We have until the end if march to receive an acceptance/ denial letters. I'm thinking any day because its between almost 2 weeks since the interviews have stopped. I'm so hopeful that soon I can check the mail box and have an acceptance letter. I wish everyone good luck!! I have a buddy over there now and he loves it. He said if you stay on top of your game you will succeed. Are any of you guys just going to school full time or balancing a job and school?

    i think im going to see how the first term goes and then maybe try to start volunteering or working per diem at a hospital if i can find something.. i will definately not be working full-time plus school.. the ABSN programs seem to go pretty quick so it makes me nervous focusing much time on anything other than school-related work! what about you?

    I will be focusing on school only. I want to be dedicated. I don't think I can do work and school. I volunteer now at the hospital and I love it. Have this journey of waiting been stressful for u? Everyday I check the mailbox to find nothing in there yet. Have you looked for any housing? If your accepted are u going to live on campus?

    the waiting has been MORE than stressful! ive applied to 5 different schools and i pretty much need to be accepted into a summer or fall start.. i will hopefully start hearing back from schools at the end of March. i moved back in w/ my parents while completing pre-reqs but they are moving to a different state this coming fall so this type of stress is not something i would like to deal with for much longer!0

    if accepted, i will not be living on campus.. i thought about it for awhile, but since JU isn't in the best neighborhood/area AND since we will be all over the place for clinical rotations, i dont feel like i need to live extremely close to campus. i will probably live near the beaches area or somewhere near st. johns towncenter.. i have been warned to stay away from Arlington in general so we will see. housing is pretty cheap compared to what im used to but im really unsure of that aspect right now!

    what about you? are you from FL? what type of volunteering do you do?

    March 22 but I'm assuming that as seats open up they will start letting people on the wait list know.

    I received my JU acceptance letter yesterday, however, I was accepted by UF (and I live in Gainesville) so I will be declining JU's offer. That's good news for someone on the waitlist!

    Docosa, did you join the UF ABSN Facebook group yet? There's a link in the UF thread if you haven't already.
