    What are my chances to get into this program with a cumulative GPA: 3.45 and a Pre-req GPA: 3.70... I applied by the March 1st deadline, does anyone know by when I would be notify? Also can anyone tell me their experience on getting into the program as well as their gpa and pre-req gpa they were accepted with?

    i applied in sept. and STILL haven't heard, i'm guess its because i have 4 pre-req's pending (that im doing right now). I went to UM for my bachelors (graduated 2005) and lemme tell ya, in the application process it's ALL about numbers and NOTHING about you as a well rounded person, they're too big of a university to care about the individual (I love them anyway)

    Stony brook was like that as well and that's where I went for my bachelors. I am still missing one pre req and it says on my letters my acceptance is pending I pass that with a c or higher so idk if that's it. Can I ask how you paid for um for your bachelors and what's your plan for this program??

    Hi everyone,

    I'm hoping to transfer to UM eventually, and I was wondering if any of you knew whether the RN-BSN program was the same as the ABSN program? I am working on completing my ASN now and will be sitting for the NCLEX at the end of my program. Anyway, I really want to go to UM, but unless there is the opportunity for me to utilize the Scholar's Program for tuition, I don't know how I could possibly pay for it! UM is already somewhat pricey, but as I am not a FL resident, out of state tuition would probably push me over the end!

    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!

    hey yunas, i transfered there as a sophomore, declared independence from my guardians and subsequently received a lot of grants and loans... at 18 i really had no concept of money, i just signed everything and now i have about 26k in debt- no clue how that happened, you'd think it would be more... i have no idea what i'm going to do if i'm accepted in may since i'll only have 1 month to come up with the money, scholarships are closed and idk, i think i missed the fafsa deadline?? i have no clue what i'll do, i dont really expect to get admitted at this point.

    Chefie- UM is a private school, therefore whether you're an in state or out of state resident the tuition will be the same

    express,

    thanks for the info...unfortunately because this is a 2nd bachelors degree my financial aid eligibility is very limited, only covers about half the program. i applied for a private student loan (took a total of 15 minutes online) and was approved instantly by two different companies (wells fargo for medcap and citibank citiassist). that is basically how most people end up paying for it if they dont receive scholarships...

    thanks yunas... i think thats what i may have to do and just hope to find a job with tuition reimbursement later on

    Quick question for those who already applied to UM. I'm looking to at UM to my list of nursing schools to apply to. I don't know if the application is way over my head or if I'm looking too much into it. The Common Application that we have to complete is all high school information and so forth....is that what I am supposed to fill out? I guess I'm just used to the other ABSN applications?

    I swear I'm not dumb lol....but I'm super confused and i don't know if I'm just missing something.

    Thanks in advance
