    Got it. I was unsure because I thought decisions were made in the last of Nov. and sent out then so they arrive in the first of Dec.

    That's what I thought too, but at least I'm spared the pain later on... I just wish they had given more consideration to me and anyone else they had rejected so early (the letter was sent out since last Wednesday so it took them a little over a week to decide). Nothing in life is guaranteed...

    But please keep me posted on your progress!!

    Hello there,

    I applied to UMass Boston for the Traditional Nursing program for Fall 2012 as a transfer student. I have contacted the school today via email and they informed me that a decision has been made on my file and they will mail out the decision letter shortly. I tried checking my status online but nothing has been updated. It still says that I am placed in the nursing pool, etc. I also just emailed back to the Admission Office to see if they can tell me the decision but I doubt that they would do that. I am getting quite impatient and nervous.

    I completed all the pre-requirement courses and had my Microbiology and Anatomy professors send in recommendation letters for me. I have a 3.82 GPA overall and now that I reread my essay/personal statement, I wish I had made a few corrections here and there. Does anyone know if the essay counts a lot? How competitive is it? Has anyone heard anything from UMass yet?

    Thanks and good luck to everyone!

    Hey Steph,

    Have you looked into Salem State or any accelerated programs? I know that MCPHS-Worcester's (accelerated between 14-16 months) fall 2012 deadline is for June 1st. I also know that RCC's fall dealine is March 15th and the last day to take the TEAS test is March 14th. All other places I'm not so sure about.

    Hi, I have not looked into those two, But previously looked into Quincy and Massasoit and many others. My big problem was that they only take science courses for 5-7 years. I just found out that UMB (and a few others) take them up to 10 years. I believe that it's 10 yrs this year from my first A&P. So that's why I had hoped to get in so I didn't have to start all over. Thanks for your help though!

    Oh and I only have an Associates in another field, so I am not able to do most accelerated programs

    No problem!! I wish I could give you more advice but the only thing I can say to you is for you to look into Roxbury CC before the deadline passes. I was also rejected from UMass Boston (not once, but twice). As of right now I'm waiting to hear from my backup choice and I'm still debating on whether or not I want to try to apply to RCC as well. Only time will tell what the future holds for us all :-/

    Did you get a reply regarding the application fee? I emailed them last week for the same reason, as I applied as a inter college transfer and still haven't heard a single thing. Also, no reply to my email!
