    Thanks I'm still waiting to hear from 2 other schools, so I still have some waiting to do...how about you?

    I'll be going to Loyola. I have had some really terrible application experiences during the last couple of years (different program...long story), so I stopped all of my other apps-in-progress once I got accepted there, because my poor heart cannot take one more week of admissions torture! I have a sure thing now and it's nice to finally be able to make solid plans.

    That's good! At least you're all set and ready!

    I'm still kind of disappointed they're moving to the Maywood campus. I rely on public transportation and would need to take 2 buses and a train to get there, including a pace bus, which I'm assuming will be a huge hassle since most run like every hour. Ugh! It would've been easier to get to the Lakeshore campus since it's in the city, but oh well.

    Yeah, I'm pretty bummed about the move, too. It will be nice to be in a completely new facility, but the commute is going to be rough...I can't even imagine how it would be with public transportation! Are your other choices in the city, then?

    Yeah, I'm pretty much just waiting to hear from DePaul, but I won't hear from them until the end of April so I am pretty nervous because I just got my letter from Loyola saying that the ABSN program operates on a first come, first serve basis, so my spot could be taken at any time and they want a reply and deposit by May 1st. =/

    hi there- i do believe the deposit is refundable though. i felt the same way and figured with my luck i had better save the loyola spot just in case depaul says no. when i was paying though i think it said it was refundable (200.00) up until the first day of class.
    good luck : )

    Really? Where did it say that?
  11. by   naysando
    sorry i just double checked..it says
    Remember, deposits are refundable only until May 1. If your plans change, you must notify Undergraduate Admissions by that date.

    sooooo i should say book it dan-o! we will know about depaul (hopefully) by then but at least you will have your spot saved...at least that is what i did : )

    I called Loyola and spoke with someone from admissions. The lady I spoke with told me that the deposit is refundable until July on a case by case basis. She also said that they ABSN program was close to getting full and advised me to pay the deposit to save my spot and if my plans change then I would be able to get a refund. SO I panicked and submitted my deposit online. I noticed that on the website it says that it is refundable until May 1st, so I figured I was fine if my plans changed.However, I looked over the intent to enroll form that came with my acceptance letter and it said that the deposit is nonrefundable. Ugh. I don't know what to believe now so I just emailed Natalie (should have just called her to begin with), hopefully she can set things straight!

    yea i know- it's confusing- and i did read somewhere that it was refundable up until the first day of classes too. by may 1st makes more sense though since that is their deadline. i am also confused by how many people are admitted (i have seen 60, 65, and 95 admitted) as well as their pass rate (they say 100% but the report for 2011 says 81%!) i think that they just have so many websites/flyers that there is no way to update them all as info changes. i have also questioned their flyer which says for the absn program they offer "direct entry to the msn program" on page 2 here:http://www.luc.edu/undergrad/media/p...ics/ABSN_2.pdf
    but when i emailed the graduate office she said that is NOT true- you have to apply just like everyone else and i think they have a 2000 experience requirement, which again confuses me because that is not what this flyer says : (
    not liking the inconsistancies so far : (
