Anyone applying to the Loyola ABSN program for Fall 2010? Also, are there any people on here that are in the program or have graduated that can talk about what they like/dislike about the program?... Read More

    I was also recently accepted to the Loyola ABSN program. However, I cannot decide between Loyola and Depaul...any thoughts? I am also waiting to hear back from Rush, but because their cohort doesn't start until January, I'm afraid I won't hear back anytime soon.

    Congrats! Loyola seems like a really good school. I recently decided to attend a different accelerated program though... best of luck on deciding where to go!

    I have a friend who is in the program and she HATES it! It is very disorganized and too much material to cover in the time they give you. Some of the professors only give online lectures, you might as well teach yourself..and for $40K that's ridiculous. Get your RN at a community college for 1/10th of the cost.

    Rush doesn't start sendingout letters for follow up interviews until after their deadline in June. I think it's June 10th or something. It'll be a while. It's a hard decision because I know Loyola will want their deposit to hold your spot. What to do. Hopefully this is a good problem.

    Hey seemi19,

    I've also applied to the 2013 ABSN program. Haven't really heard much (other than the routine emails in regards to the application process). Consequently, I'm still going through the waiting period. Hoping for the best though!

    Does anyone know how they factor your GPA? Is it based only on your prerequisite courses? I have great prerequisite course grades. My other ones are okay - no D's or F's. But I have two C's and a handful of B's.

    To be honest, I'm not sure. Each school varies. In general, though, prerequisite GPA counts more than overall GPA; however, overall GPA still contributes to admissions criteria. I think the reason prerequisite GPA tends to count more is because the courses relate to the program. Someone may have a high overall GPA for a bachelor in History, whereas someone else may have an average overall GPA in Molecular Cell Biology... so to be fair, one cannot compare both sets of GPA when the level of difficulty is different.

    Has anyone heard any updates on when admission decisions for spring 2013 will go out?
