Any Fall 2006 JHU Applicants?

  1. thought we could get a little thread going on.

    i don't know about everyone else, but i don't know how on earth i'm going to make it to decision time. i know decisions aren't announced until december 15, but i still come home each day checking email and mail for anything jhu related! jhu has been my dream for almost two years.

    i still can't believe 1000 applicants for 100 seats. blows my mind.

    anyways, so what's everyone applying for? accelerated or traditional? direct-entry or not?

    i decided to go traditional. i've worked so hard that if i get in, i want to enjoy jhu and baltimore. i want to get involved in as much as possible, and intern at jhu during the summer.

    can't wait to hear from everyone!!

    So, uh, is this a sign that not many people applied this year and i have a shot, or what? :chuckle

    i do have a question for anyone who applied early decision in the past. i keep hearing for the regular deadline, they called those accepted the day the letters came out. does anyone know if they do the same thing for early decision? and I suppose there's no chance word will come out BEFORE December 15..(man, I need some sleep!!)

    Thanks guys! I look forward to hearing from any JHU applicants, students, or alumni!!

    Hi Alanap!!!

    Great to hear from you!! Nice to meet ya!

    Oh and welcome to AllNurses!!!!

    Did you apply early decision?

    Kinda freaking out at the minute because just found out my school's not releasing grade reports or unofficial transcripts until the 19th, and announcements are made on the 15th..ayiyi!!(edit: nevermind, talked to my uni's registrar, and he said just come this monday, hopefully that's enough time! )

    Glad to meet you! Hope we can talk more! Are you from MD?

    I did apply early decision and just found out I got in! I've just got to pass microbio with a B. (This shouldn't be a problem but I am driven by anxiety so of course it makes me a little nervous.) I am from California. Grew up in Berkeley, now I live in Oakland (where I've been doing prerequisites at community college) and I have an undergrad BA from UCLA. How about you? I've never been to Baltimore but am thinking it might be time to plan a trip! Best of luck! How long is the traditional program?
    Cheers!

    I know another person who got accepted for early decision this week, so JHUSON are in the process of contacting people now. If you are not there live, I don't think they leave a message. They want to tell you live. Good luck.

    **sigh**

    thanks, girlie, but my dad's in a wheelchair and always at home. Nobody's tried calling.

    I guess when I fax them my updated unofficial transcript Monday, I'll ask. Can't hurt.

    Hang in there Peachy. It could be they are going down a list and there are only so many hours in the day to contact applicants! If your name is toward the end of the alphabet, it could be next week. Don't stress out over things you cannot control. You'll find out by Dec 15th!

    Namaste,

    Hehe, you're making me smile, and I appreciate it.

    Unfortunately, my last name starts with a B.

    I did like the Namaste. I tried yoga a couple of times and loved it. I was home to try the Bikram yoga studio in Baltimore.

    Thanks so much for everything you've done over the last year. I appreciate it.:angel2:

    But Peachy, didn't you apply traditional? Maybe they've only notified accelerated program people. I think it is a great idea to call and ask on monday.

    Thanks so much you guys.

    I'm sorry, not trying to be a pain. Just don't know what I'll do if I'm not in.

    Do you mind if I ask if you (or your friend, Smile) are direct entry? That's the only thing I can figure out calling early.

    Why aren't you out partying/celebrating, alanap? Studying for finals too? :chuckle

    Hi Peachy,
    Well, actually "namaste" is blessing, not a yoga pose per se:

    "I honor the place in you where Spirit lives
    I honor the place in you which is
    of Love, of Truth, of Light, of Peace,
    when you are in that place in you,
    and I am in that place in me,
    then we are One."

    It's an ancient Sanskrit saying.

    The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another. "Nama" means bow, "as" means I, and "te" means you. Therefore, Namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you."

    It's often said at the end of a yoga class; the mind is less active and the energy in the room is more peaceful. The teacher initiates Namaste as a symbol of gratitude and respect toward her students and her own teachers and in return invites the students to connect with their lineage, thereby allowing the truth to flow--the truth that we are all one when we live from the heart.

    So what I was trying to say, was a variant of 'peace' to calm your inner soul. Patience is the key.
