    Congrats Paco!! Well sort of lol.

    I'm still waiting on my decision, so if you don't mind me asking. How did they inform you?
    By mail .. but I was not home. Someone was checking the mail for me and I had them open the letter they said was from U of Miami.

    HI all! I just sent in my application. I am so surprised that everyone is ahead of the game and submitted their applications already. Can I ask what the turn around time was from when you submitted the application until you heard back?
    now that you have all been accepted, I am getting nervous!

    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?

    robin and lovelogic,

    when did you guys send in your applications

    nycgal, which program are you applying into, may 2011 or jan 2012? there is another thread on this site regarding the fact that there are two conflicting websites with 2 conflicting deadlines. i believe in december they changed the august 2011 start date to jan 2012 and also changed the application deadlines. i applied dec 1st for early decision and because one of my college transcripts from a class i took in hs wasnt in on the 1st, i wasnt considered for early decision and still have yet to receive a reply.

    kyle123, again you probably saw the old website with the march 1st deadline..from reading these posts before..it looks like typical turn around time was about 4-6 weeks for early decision...they send out decision letters on a weekly basis, but my admissions advisor said i would receive a decision by april 15th and i applied dec 1st my B.S. degree GPA was 3.52, my pre req gpa is a 4.0 (i am taking chemistry right now and also have a 4.0 in that class)

    am going crazy waiting...but will let you guys know how long it takes before i get my letter. im at 3 months of waiting now

    OP on this thread! Decided to pop in to congratulate everyone who got into the summer class! If you did not know already, I did get accepted to Miami but I declined their offer. The tuition is way beyond what I am capable of comfortably paying. So, some lucky person on the waitlist got my seat, well-deserved I am sure (I hope anyway!) ... I have since been accepted to ABSN programs @ UCF and Stony Brook (NY) and have an interview this Fri with UNF so we shall see which school will soon be my BSN-granting school!

    Best of luck everyone! We're going to be NURSES!

    hey all congrats to whoever got in. I want to apply for next year.. i'm really nervous tho. what do u think my chances are of getting in. I'm 21 years old, from new york.. I will have just received my BA in psychology with an overall 3.7 gpa wen i apply. Will have all but 1 pre-req done before i apply in which I will have all A's and high B's.. like 70 hrs of volunteer experience in an ICU in a hospital. other than that, no healthcare experience. As a psych major I had 2 research positions in labs, i dont know if that will help. What do you think my chances are of getting in?? for all you guys who got in , do you mind sharing your stats / experiene with me? thanks!

    hi klinden,

    you have really good stats so i wouldnt be too worried. you should apply to the SUNY schools as well if you were considering staying in new york. my stats were: B.S. in Business Mgmt with an overall 3.52 GPA...My pre-req GPA (minus Psych) is a 4.0, but I was missing 1 pre-req class, which i am taking now. my acceptance letter says my acceptance is pending i complete my prereq class with a C or higher. i have spoken to others who were missing several pre-reqs and still were accepted. i have NO healthcare experience at all and the only volunteer experience i have was being a foster parent for the humane society...they really dont look into all of that much specifically as entry requirements, although the common application (the one you fill out for entry into the program) will ask you to write an essay and put info about volunteer work. also, make sure you get a good letter of recommendation in for yourself. some people say the app process is looking for well rounded individuals while others say its all numbers. i dont have an opinion on that yet. one thing i will say is APPLY EARLY!!!! there was conflicting website information up when i was applying. i thought i was applying for early decision for May but i was actually applying ON the deadline date..while other people waited 4-5 weeks for an acceptance letter i waited 3 months (assuming i was on a wait list of some sort)..hope this helps..good luck

    thanks yunas_mommy!

    I am also considering applying to Suny stonybrook, suny downstate and NYU in new york.. the other suny schools are upstate and i spent the last 4 years upstate in binghamton so I need to get out of there haha. Do you mind me asking how old you were when you got in ? i'm nervous that since im right out of college they may not take me. i wont have as much life experience/work as some. the only jobs ive had is a secretary in 2 law firms and a tutor for psychology.. did u apply to any other schools and get in?

    Stony brook is a great school. I'm from long island grew up in Medford and did my bachelors there. They are highly recommended for science majors. Lol yeah change of scenery from upstate would be nice. I am 25 now but they don't look at your work experience. There are people in my class that range from like 19 to in their 30's from what I can tell. Your grades are great I wouldn't be too worried. I only applied to Barry u as well and got accepted but I would have to wait because they wanted more pre reqs and also more money for a longer program so I chose To stick w UM since it was my first choice anyway!
