    Normally nursing schools accept you as a class. So you all follow the same track and take the clinicals and classes at the same time. If they let us take summer classes we would get ahead of the rest of the graduating class and so most schools don't offer that option unless you apply to an accelerated BSN which is normally open to students already holding a different bachelors degree

    Hey, west0807, thanks for the info! I've actually already been accepted to a few different ABSNs (I do already have my degree). The UMSON BSN is specifically offered to students who already have their BSN, as well as to students who do not, and a time period for completion is not clarified. (The website merely states that we must finished within 5 years of matriculation). I really want to make the right decision, since UMSON is a great school, but I can't spend too much time in nursing school as my husband will be pursuing his PhD.

    For the BSN students at UM, summer is only half the length of a normal semester. Students may take one or two courses in the summer but that is not enough to make up a whole semester so they cannot graduate any earlier - although it does lighten the load for the next semester.

    Is anyone 'Committee ready' yet? My status still hasn't changed yet.

    Grey Lady,

    I re-applied to University of Maryland at Shady Grove campus for the fall semester. I know we hear back this month mid-April. I have a couple of questions for you.

    1) Which hospitals does the Shady Grove campus do their clinicals at?
    2) Can we choose which hospitals we do our clinicals at or is that determined by the professors?
    3) Is there any way you could tell us how many students applied for the fall semester so I could get an idea of what my chances are of getting in?

    I am so nervous to hear back. I already got accepted at Stevenson University but it is so expensive. I really hope I get into Shady Grove campus as it is closer to home and much cheaper.

    My status hasn't changed yet either. However, I haven't been too worried about that because one of the posts from Grey Lady stated that there really is no difference to the students regarding the committee ready status versus the complete and ready for review status, but that it is more for administrative purposes.

    glamourousgirl -1. Shady Grove students go to clinicals all over Montgomery county, a couple in Frederick, a few in DC and even some at UMMS. New ones can come online any time.2. Clinical registrations for either campus are done online (at a later date than registration for classes) and it is basically a lottery. You attempt to register for your first choice and if that one is full you try for second choice, etc. SG students cannot register for Baltimore designated clinicals and vice versa. Unless the system goes down, it's all over in 10 - 15 minutes. 3. The total number of applicants is a meaningless number. Yes, we receive hundreds but a big chunk of those are either unqualified or not serious applicants. I am afraid there is no way to estimate any individual's "chances". Just hang in there - it should not be much longer.

    Thank you so much for answering my questions, that was very helpful! The reason why I asked was because I thought that Shady Grove campus only did their clinicals at Shady Grove Hospital since they are the closest hospital to the campus. I am glad to hear that Shady Grove campus does clinicals all over Montgomery County.

    I can't believe we find out soon, I am so nervous!

    hi all.. I have applied to RN-BSN program for Fall 2013 intake and my online application status was changed to "Committee Ready" about two weeks ago. I got to know they will send out letters in mid April. So hang in there guys and we are almost there.

    So I was wondering how the provisional acceptance works? Like do I wait until I get my transcript from this semester to send in all the forms and money? Because I just got the call saying I was provisionally accepted (I assume since I really didn't have many of my pre-reqs doen since I just switched to nursing last semester) and I know I will be getting all A's and B's this semester.
