Is there anyone out there applying to the direct entry MSN program at Simmons? I will be attending the program beginning this summer (2012). I went to Simmons for my undergrad, so I've been living in Boston for 6 years and am well-aquainted with the area. I currently live in Brighton (about a 15 minute drive from the campus). I would love to talk to anyone applying to the program!!!!

Last year Simmons sent out the decisions in three waves. I guess there were over 300 applications so they just randomly divided the applications into three stacks and sent out the decisions that way. I got my financial aid award package in the mail three days ago, and to be honest I'm a bit overwhelmed/ confused. Is the program really going to cost $82,042 for the first year? I'm kind of confused where this number is coming from--- when I did out the cost/ credit ($1,164) x the number of credits for the first year (35) I got $40,740. Where is this "NEED: $82,042" number coming from!? I don't need on campus housing.
The "need" number should be your school plus cost of living so you can draw loans out for living if needed.
I can give you some tips about things to consider with loans etc. Send me a message.
