Loyola ABSN Fall 2013

  1. 0
    Just starting a thread for applicants to Loyola's Accelerated BSN program this fall. I applied in January but have been waiting for my last recommendation letter to be submitted for a few weeks, which will hopefully be done by the end of this week. I am wondering how quickly responses are sent out once they review your complete application and I'm also curious to know how they decide who to admit since it's rolling admissions- they can't really compare an entire applicant pool at once this way.

    Hi.
    I applied for Fall as well. My application is now complete. I read on another thread from last year that one applicant received her decision 2 weeks after her application was complete. The rolling admissions makes me nervous because they have apparently been reviewing applications since January and they only accept around 60 people I heard.

    Same here. I'm curious how the rolling admissions works at Loyola. Since they don't really have a complete applicant pool to consider at one time, they can't compare candidates against one another to decide who to admit. Hopefully that's a good thing for everyone who applies early in the app cycle. I actually applied in January but unfortunately my last recommendation letter was just submitted yesterday so it will be a while before a decision is made. After reading some threads from last year, it did seem to take until the end of April to get the cohort filled and wait list started, but surprised because at other schools I'm applying to there are like 300-500 people who apply each time.

    Where else have you applied? I applied to NYU but it is way too expensive. I am awaiting a decision from them too.

    I live out of state so a bunch of public universities in Florida. I'm on the fence about Resurrection University in Chicago too. It's accredited by CCNE and has good NCLEX pass rates but I'm a bit suspicious that they have guaranteed admissions to their BSN program but the minimum stats for it is quite low.

    I also applied at the end of December and my last LOR was just submitted yesterday. I'm crossing my fingers there's still plenty of seats in the cohort left.

    Good to know. The school of nursing called me this evening to invite me to an info session, but I live out of state so I can't attend. Has anyone gone to one already?

    i am in the middle of the application process for this program and i also got a call from them re: info sessions. i live out of state too, but i thought it was interesting that they are trying to touch base with everyone!
