UF Accelerated BSN, Summer 2018 - page 4

Hi all! It's pretty early on but I'd love to meet and chat with the potential applicants for this program. I also think it'd be great to have this forum in case we stumble upon application... Read More

    Personally, my focus is to apply for UF both at Gainesville and Jax, mainly because it's closer to home and since I'm used to UF already haha. I still have yet to start my application because I wanted to be sure of my summer grades first before I calculated them. In that case, this is the last week and I'm almost done, hopefully I'll get an A (fingers crossed)! And from what I heard there is an Essay for the UF application.. hopefully that isn't too bad. Also, do you guys know if this qualifies as a bachelor's program for financial aid? I want to know so if it is I can apply for it..?

    That makes sense, I'd love to be closer to home if I could as well! So I hope you get in! And you have a point. I'm still taking a pre-req but I plan I sending in an updated transcript in the future. :-) Good luck with those classes!!!

    And I didn't know about the essay (didn't see it on the website), but if there ends up being one in CASPA, no problem!

    As for the financial aid, from my understanding I wouldn't see why it wouldn't. I think Financial aid only covers to a certain number of credits, so I think at some point you may end up having to pay out of pocket once you reach that limit in the program. But that's definitely a question Kenneth could answer!

    Quick Question: So I called UF Office of Admission to ask about the application and they told me to put BSN Accelerated or Nursing BSN Accelerated for the planned major department. I put "BSN Accelerated." Is that what you guys put as well? Just wanted to make sure

    Also we don't round the self reported GPA right?

    Hey guys, have you heard anything after submitting the Post Bacc app? I sent it on the 27th I think but I haven't heard anything yet. So I was wondering if you both did or not..?

    Hi there, can anybody shed some light on how long it took UF to get back to you regarding your initial application? (the post bac one)!

    Hi! So I sent mine in on around June 27th and I saw they cashed in my check July 7th. That's howbi know they received it but other than that I haven't heard anything. I don't know what to expect either..

    Ok. I sent mine out on the 7th. So they should be cashing mine soon? If you can let me know when they get back to you!

    I sent my application and check on June 1st. The check was processed a week later. I haven't heard anything back. I'm not sure what to expect either? I'll probably follow up soon because I feel like it shouldn't take this long...

    Yeah maybe we should call or something..? This process is making me anxious and I'd rather turn things in, if I'm missing any, now. Or I have to wait until fall since I will be travelling soon..

    Well nursingCAS doesn't open until August, maybe there will be more info when that opens.
