    Hello!
    Yes, I will be attending Amherst. I am a bit overwhelmed regarding housing. Where on the east coast are you living?

    I live in Vermont, about two and a half hours away from Amherst. I'm going to look for an apartment when I go down for orientation. I really don't want to commute every day.

    Hey guys, I was also accepted to UMass Amherst and is one of my top choices. I graduated this past December from Umass. It's a really great school and the nursing program is one of the best! Just thought I'd say hello to potential classmates!

    I am from Los Angeles!


    I'm also going to be looking at housing during orientation. Orientation day is the day of my finals so hopefully everything works out with my professors.

    Sure thing! The school is not in a city and is not very close to one either. Springfield and Worcester are prob the two closest cities. However, the school itself is like a city. It's huge! But Amherst is a really pretty town in a beautiful area. I am origionally from a town just outside of boston, so a city gal at heart i still loved it in Amherst. There are buses that go throughout the town and to some surrounding towns. I had a good friend in the traditional nursing program who loved it. She said the professors are awesome and the classes are taught very well. As far as doing clinicals she said she didn't think she was losing out on any kind of experiance not being in the city. Hope that helps a little!

    Thanks for the reply! I guess Im gunna have to fly up and check out the school. I hear its beautiful but i've been in a small town for 4 years and kinda want a different scenery but then again the program is said to be great. Where do you recommend flying into?

    ummmm if youre looking to fly into an international airport hartford ct is the closest. there are alot of little airports near by amherst but im not sure what airlines actually land there. i too was set on being in a city after 4 years at umass but all the other programs i got into were crazy expensive. its awful! but i figure if i end up at umass its only 17 months and ill have no time for an actual life besides studying so it really wont matter where i am! where else are you considering?
