DePaul MENP Fall 2013 - Page 2Register Today!
- Feb 5 by baystudent@rykii, I also applied to U of Arizona (~$45,000 tuition for entire program) and Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati (~$39,000). DePaul costs almost $68,000 for tuition for this entire program. I live in California, and we don't have too many programs here that offer a direct-entry generalist masters so I mostly applied out of state for that reason.
@oh191, it would be lovely and much appreciated if you could ask about financial aid.
@sweetie23, I received an e-mail and am waiting on the snail mail to arrive.
- Feb 6 by sweetie23Congrats to you all who got in! I'm just so anxious to hear back from them. Did you all apply really early? I applied right before the deadline maybe that's why I still havent found out yet?
- Feb 7 by rykki@sweetie23, I got all my applications in the day before the deadline! I got an e-mail and received the packet almost a week later.
@baystudent, Ah okay. I was just thinking about the other direct entry MSN programs in Chicago, which are around the same price (I think).
@oh191, Yes please! It'd be great to meet someone before the program starts. So are you set on going to DePaul? And what time on the 22nd?
- Feb 11 by rykki@oh191, I submitted my intent to enroll form online and nowhere in the packet or online did it mention a deposit. Unless I just completely missed it! Also, I'm sorry if you tried PM-ing me, it's not working for me at the moment. I would love to join you for the tour on the 22nd at 2pm. Are you meeting in the Welcome Center @ 2400 N. Sheffield Ave?
- Feb 13 by oh191Rykki, I will try to PM you again but just in case it doesn't work I think we are meeting at the school of nursing on W. Fullerton. I will double check though!
- Feb 20 by mdecasCongratulations everyone! I found out I was accepted this morning. There's no deposit according to the college and first payment for anything is just tuition in September.
The campus is very pretty and the student body is very diverse (I live a few blocks and use their gym) - and not to mention, located in a beautiful city!
- Feb 21 by rykkiWow, congratulations @mdecas! I'd like to hear more about what you have to say about DePaul; I'm very curious. Is housing easy to find around there? Is it affordable?
- Feb 21 by mdecas@Rykki thank you very much ... I know two students from DePaul - both alumni and found work right away in downtown Chicago hospitals. Both claimed that DePaul MENP students are looked highly upon - always a plus
Housing in Lincoln Park/around DePaul's campus is easy to find (best time to look is in the summer when graduates are leaving the area). I live in Wrigleyville - less than a 10 min drive/train ride) from DePaul's main campus and I pay around $850 for a one bedroom with most utilities included. Both Wrigleyville and Lincoln Park are great areas to live in (Lincoln Park, in my opinion is nicer in terms of cleanliness. Wrigleyville is known for its bars and can be a bit noisy on weekend nights if you don't mind that). The people are mostly students and younger crowds like us. The campus is off the Red line train and is accessible by bus if you decide to live further from campus.
let me know if you have any other questions about the area!
- Feb 21 by rykki@mdecas, Thank you your post was very helpful! It was reassuring to hear that DePaul has a good reputation and that alumni were able to find work. If my situation allows it, I'd like to find an apartment in Lincoln Park or a few stops away on the red line. I've been browsing Craigslist just to get an idea of what's out there for the area and it seems pretty pricey. I'd have to find a/some roommate(s) but am kinda not looking forward to searching for strangers.
@oh191, I'm sorry we haven't been able to PM each other. I'd still like to join you for the tour tomorrow, so if it's still on I will show up at the nursing school at the time you mentioned! Look forward to meeting ya.
