MGH Accelerated BSN Spring 2016

  1. Hello everyone!
    Has anyone applied for the MGH Institute of Health Professionals ABSN for Spring 2016?
    I thought I'd start a thread for applicants. :P

    I believe the deadline is in July so I may be an early bird.

    I appreciated their application the most - they really give their applicants a lot of opportunities to shine. Of all the schools I've applied to, they seemed to put the most effort into getting to know their applicants.

    I've got my fingers crossed!

    I'm in the process of my MGH application now. Not sure if I will be applying before the July 1st or the September deadline, but will be actively pushing to having everything in for the July deadline. The sooner the better, let's see how this pans out!

    I'm definitely trying to submit my app before the July 1st deadline. I don't want to wait another year before starting an ABSN program. @KayGee- How did you submit an unofficial transcript and how exactly do the recommendations work?

    Both my schools have the option to log in to a student center and view unofficial transcripts. My university allowed for a PDF download of unofficial transcripts, my community college was trickier. They just display a regular ol' website displaying them. I had to screenshot and make them into a PDF. Just to be safe, I also attached a .doc format of them just copied and pasted into a Word document. I attached that to their additional documents section.

    I imagine it's a common issue though. If you're having difficulties, I'd call them. They might have suggestions, especially if your school doesn't offer download options.

    Okay, I do have the option of seeing my unofficial transcript in the student center. That's actually a good idea to screenshot and save as both PDF and as documents. Thanks for the advice!
    I don't have any login info from my first undergrad school since I transferred and all my information expired. How would you suggest obtaining an unofficial script from them?

    Did you fill out the optional essay about your grades reflection of your abilities?

    Yes I did. I gave them a big long explanation for my GPA. They may take it into consideration, who knows. lol

    I was accepted to MGH institute and chose not to attend. I had developmental psych and aanatomy in progress when I applied so I think they emphasize a lot on the essay. Please be aware that they have a online component for many classes. If you have any questions regarding the application process there pls let me know.

    online component? can you explain further? i don't believe i've seen that on the website and not sure i'm going to make it to an info session. did you visit the school?

    Some of their classes are hybrid. I'm not sure exactly which ones. You may ask the school exactly which. It's a great school and you'll do your rotations at great hospitals but I found that I learn best in traditional way in classroom so I decided not to attend.

    I didn't visit but I had put in my deposit

    My application was completed on the 21st of May. I am really hoping I get an acceptance. I was denied at Northeastern. I am currently an EMT so I hope that helps me somehow. Does anyone know if there is a min GPA for acceptance at MGH?

    Honestly, I'm kind of curious too. Whenever they don't say anything I just assume they prefer 3.0+, but I know some schools will go as low as 2.0-2.5 range.

    I haven't even sent in my app yet, do you think they have rolling admissions depending on when people apply? Or does everyone hear at around the same time?
  14. by   guest08/01/16
    They do not have Rolling. I sent mine in a few days before deadline. Take the time to write your essay rather than rushing it. I suggest not submitting last minute of course.
