Hello!! I am looking heavily into applying for Curry's accel program. Is there anyone out there that has attended the program or is applying this year for the April 1st deadline?
Thanks, I am out of state so can't attend an info session.

Are there any nice family oriented towns near the campus? I looked at Milton homes, and they are a bit pricey for what you get. Actually I'm looking for rental homes if I were to apply and be accepted as I'd be relocating there from CA.
Any info on the area in general?

hmmmm... milton is def. a pricey city to live in. so curry is on the border of milton and dorchester. milton is a really nice area, and so is curry's campus.
if you have a car, i would suggest looking at: quincy, braintree, randoph, dedham which are some of the cities near milton. there is also public transportation in some of these cities as well
hope this helps

I am applying this year as well. I applied last year but didn't get in. Hopefully 2012 will be a better year than 2011!
I live in Stoughton, which is only about 10 minutes from Milton. Both Stoughton and Canton (town between Stoughton and Canton) are family-oriented, and both have commuter rail stations, as well as easy access to highways. Canton is probably pricier than Stoughton, but both should be more affordable than Milton. I would definitely consider looking at these towns. (I grew up in Stoughton and I'm now raising my own family in Stoughton, so I'm probably a little biased. But I do think it's a great town, as is Canton.)

That should have said "town between Stoughton and Milton." Sorry.

Did they mention in the info session what average GPA's were? My undergrad cum was barely a 3.0 but I've done very well (all A's and B's) since getting my BA and my overall is about a 3.4...for last 30 semester units.
I just don't want to waste another set of transcripts.....ugh. I'm currently taking stats and chem and then I'm done.

Someone provided a very nice summary of their recent Information Session here: http://allnurses.com/ma-nursing-prog...ml#post6143934
GPAs are mentioned in this post.

Hi, I'm new to this site, and I just applied to Curry College Accel BSN for the January 2013 start. Has anyone else applied? What are your stats? I have a Bachelor's in journalism from University of Florida, graduated with a 3.23 undergrad GPA, I have all A's and one B+ (in stats) in the prereq classes that I have done, and I'm finishing up Anatomy II this semester and still have to take Microbiology. I have 4 years of work experience and have some healthcare volunteer experience (currently a patient care volunteer at a hospital). I think my essay was pretty good, I had some writer friends critique it. What do you think my chances are? I'm so anxious to hear back! Good luck to everyone who's applying!!!

I applied as well, second year in a row. Last year, I only had two of the prerequisites done, now they are all done with an overall GPA of 4.0. I really hope that the lack of prerequisites was what hurt me last year because that's the only difference in my application from last year to this year. I have no health care experience. My undergrad GPA was 3.63, in math and physics. I'm worried about my essay. I actually only submitted my application today because I had been retooling my essay. I thought my essay last year was good, but I had to write a new one this year, and it was tough to answer the same three questions in a different way. (Because, really, things haven't changed much since last year. I still want to attend Curry as badly as I did last year!)
This is going to be such a long month! Good luck to you and all other applicants.

I applied! I have a BS in Human Services my undergrad GPA was a 3.5. I completed all my pre-reqs with all A's. I currently work at Children's Hospital Boston as a coordinator with nurse practitioners. Mapie I agree, April will def. be a long month.
Best of luck to the both of you

Jenni, not sure if you attended the Info Session, but from your bio. You have what they are looking for:
GPA is around the 3.0s for undergrad
Your pre-reqs are not B- or below
If you feel confident about your essay then it must be good
Just make sure that you get a B- or higher in those pre-reqs that you are going to take
At the Info Session they talked about how they want the all around student. They pay attention to everything.
Wishing you all the best in the pre-reqs as well as in your admission!
