Hi there! I received my acceptance letter for the Summer 2011 Accelerated BSN Program at UM. I was just wondering if anyone who is already in this program could give me some insight on how they like it. Some of my main questions... Read More

    I thought early decision deadline was Dec 1 .. I guess I was mistaken. And I must admit I did sit on the application for a while before sending it in. Had I known there would be a rolling admissions process I would have jumped on this one. I noticed people applied as early as last spring, wow. I would have done that. Then again, I did not really consider Miami until @ Sept. To be honest, Miami is not one of my top choices especially since the cost is astronomical. I would only go to Miami if I were to get a substantial financial award. If it's meant to be, it will happen. Wait and see ...

    The early decision deadline was dec 1st, but the regular decision deadline is mar 1st for both the summer and fall program. I applied as soon as I found out um had a Bsn program. I had no clue, it never came up on the websites when I searched Bsn, otherwise I would have applied way in advance as well.

    Izopata, you never mentioned when you sent your application in...?

    I had applied for the last fall, but due to full capacity they postponed my application for the summer. They have had my application since March of last year, I believe. The lady told me today that I was accepted.I asked her about receiving a credit evaluation before receiving a decision letter. She said that that was weird bacause normally you receive a decision letter first, and then de credit evaluation, she checked and told me that I had been accepted that I have not received my decision letter since they are just in the process of printing them. I am very happy, but I do not believe it until I see the decision letter. I will keep you posted. Good luck!

    I forgot to mention that I was told by the admission office that the accelarated option do not have an early decision option. They review the applications by the order they receive them.

    There is no more Fall admissions. All applications were due on December 1st 2010. They have changed the Fall Start to January start and the first January class is starting Jan 2012 with applications due October.
    Visit Website as the changes were made within the early Fall 2010. I was not aware till I called and spoke with admissions because two different websites list different application due dates.

    But to clarify there is no early admissions everything was due December 1st 2010 for May 2011 start and the next start date after that is January 2012!

    Good Luck everyone!
    Hope that helped

    Sure did, thanks for clarifying. I was wondering why there were 2 websites out there with conflicting info! I have reduced hopes with Miami now ... ... with rolling admissions, I will be competing for a smaller number of seats.

    izo,
    I totally had the feeling you were accepted. i got accepted into barry (but for pre-nursing since i was missing chem..) and they sent me the same thing with my financial aid documents. so congratulations! is UM your first choice? are you waiting on other schools? and thanks for letting us know they said there was no early decision..this is the website i somehow found when i was applying into the program...

    http://www6.miami.edu/sonhs/programs/bsn_acc_adrd.html

    they have 2-3 websites with conflicting info, but i either reallllllly lucky or just made it by the skin of my teeth..

    i filled out my common app dec 1st, got most of my transcripts in by the 2nd ( i took this one lousy college credity course in hs and ALWAYS forget about getting those transcripts in and never have extras!), and received a letter dated dec 3rd they received my application. i am being considered for the may (summer 1 entry) program. i called and verified today after i read these posts and saw my hope dwindling away. she would not give me any info though, she told me i "would be notified by the united states postal service" lol. so im still in the game here for may...

    i REALLY hope i get into mays class, because i am going back to my old job (which i dislike very much!) in the meantime to try and make, and save, some money before starting school. i couldnt IMAGINE having to work there for another whole year...

    paco, dont give up hope yet..because its a recent change and rolling admissions and alot of people are deferring their enrollment because of cost (which im sure is a reason people arent applying as well)
