The deadline is approaching! I noticed there wasn't a thread for this so I thought I'd start one. Is anyone else out there applying to Salisbury for the Accelerated BSN program?... Read More

    Huh, lots of vegetarians around here. Me too!

    Hopefully you have the transcript issue sorted out by now. My application also said 'incomplete'. I called to inquire, and for some reason, the nursing department only sent some of my transcripts to admissions. I had to ask them to send all of them. I'm sure this isn't a normal occurrence though.

    Has anyone been called for an interview? I haven't heard a peep yet. I'm starting to get a bit anxious.

    I haven't but I just found out I was accepted to stony brook so you have one less competitor. Good luck everyone!

    congrats GoVeg!!!! Is that your school of choice? Awesome!

    I haven't heard anything either, I'm anxious too because SU is one of my top picks. eek. Hope to hear soon...and thanks for posting the number, I'll give them a call but I hope its not a big deal.

    Anyone taking pathophysiology online? Or planning to take it this summer at SU? I really want to find a self-paced online course but having a really hard time.

    Thanks cbrubaker! Yep, Stony Brook was my first choice

    I was enrolled in pathophysiology online but dropped it as I don't need it for Stony Brook. I was taking it at a community college in North Carolina online. It was $800 for the course with out of state tuition so it is somewhat reasonable. I think UCLA extension also offers it online. I know it sounds crazy to take schools in other states but after I moved state and had to pay out of state tuition I found that other states had much cheaper tuition than Maryland.

    If I get into Salisbury, I will take pathophysiology online this summer. A counselor at SU told me to not even try getting into the class at SU. She said it was near impossible for current students to get in, let alone those who are not yet students. Kind of frustrating that it's required, yet so hard to find, but I guess that's due to a teacher shortage.

    I took my patho online at the community college of Denver during a summer session and loved it. Figured I'd at least mention it in case you need some other places that offer it.

    Hi,I also applied to Salisbury, and if I get accepted, I plan to take Pathophysiology this summer. I am taking Chemistry there this semester, so I hope I can get into the summer class since I'm now considered a "current" student. Also, I called Carmel Boger last month and asked about interviews, and she said they most likely won't do interviews because they're expecting a large volume of applicants. She said they didn't do them last year for that reason. So, I guess we have to just wait for a letter in the mail. Good luck to you all! Hopefully, we'll be classmates this year!

    Awesome, we can have study sessions with vegetarian snacks! Coherrman, how is the area? Are you from Salisbury originally? I am from NJ and want to drive down and check out the area, I don't know much about it. Tips??

    I live an hour away, so I'm not sure where the best housing is. Salisbury has some parts that I've heard can be a bit sketchy, but overall, I think it's a decent area. The beaches are only a little over a half hour away, and there are many quaint, charming towns nearby. I live near Easton, and it's beautiful and charming. If you love the water, the Eastern Shore is a great place to be! I'd recommend that you explore a bit outside of Salisbury where you'll find more charm and places to eat and shop other than chains (Salisbury is a big strip full of every chain store and restaurant you can think of)!

    Thank you so much for telling us about the interviews. I've been getting anxious since I haven't heard from them. Although I wish there were interviews, to have one more shot at making a good impression.

    Coherrman, I'm in Cambridge. We're practically neighbors!

    LotusBean, we are very close! What online Pathophysiology course will you be taking? I didn't know it would be so hard to get into the summer class at SU and assumed I'd take it there. I start chemistry at SU next week, so maybe That will help. I am staring to get so anxious to find out whether or not I'm going to be in the 2nd degree program or not! Hopefully, we'll both get in!

    I am taking A & P II at Chesapeake this semester, and can't take patho until that is completed. I have looked around at online courses, but haven't decided on one yet. The SU counselor I emailed with was probably talking about path during the school year. Perhaps it is easier to get in during the summer?

    When do you think we'll find out our fates? I'm thinking March, but I am already checking my mailbox anxiously every day.
