    Hello everyone!!! I was looking up comments for niu and im glad i found this. So i applied last year to Niu and i was placed on the waiting list for spring. I then received an acceptance letter to begin Jan 2012 however i was unable to start because i had just had a baby. Nursing staff told me to reapply for fall so i did and i just got a denial((. I didnt even get on the waiting list! Im so bummed i def thought i wud at least get on the waiting list. The letter says to reaply for next yr i wonder what the chances r ill get accepted next fall? Any ideas?

    so sorry to hear that - just does not make any sense. I would call the school and find out what happened - they should be able to fill you in with some information I would guess. Still waiting on my end for a response.

    Awfully quiet on the thread today......anyone heard anything yet?
    Most of the talking seems to have shifted over to the facebook group. :P Quite a few people from the thread, including myself, were accepted. There are also some still waiting on their letters too, so come join us! Here's the link to the group if you'd like to join us and chat:
