    I'm in the program currently. You can get white scrub pants, all-white shoes, stethoscope, and penlight for now. You will eventually need a uniform top through the school, but you won't need it right away and you might even be able to get a hand-me-down from one of us at that point. My best advice for saving money is DONT BUY TEXTBOOKS! All the books you need are on closed reserve in the library and I honestly wouldn't have cracked my books if I had got them (just an fyi). Also, if it isn't too late, take more pre-reqs! If you can take research, ethics, pharmacology, or pathophysiology then do so. It will save you money, time, and stress if you do. Also, congrats on getting in! I remember being in your position last year --- now I'm over halfway through!

    I start an accelerated bsn program in January 2013 and will finish in February of 2014! I have two prereqs left to go and now I'm just irrationally worried something will go wrong haha. So excited!!!

    I legitimately found this story yesterday. Today, I got a call from my first choice accelerated bsn program informing me that I had been taken off the waitlist - I've finally been accepted! Thanks for the encouragement...even if it didn't need to take me very far

    My guess is that they will actually call us. I had a similar experience when I was wait-listed at another school over a year ago but I declined the spot when they got to me because I couldn't fulfill the prereqs in time. I think it makes them a little nervous to not have all their spots filled and they want to know who can take the spots as soon as they become available. However, I suppose email would be almost as fast.

    Good luck! I received my letter from Mt Carmel today and was also wait-listed - number 8! During my interview I was told that they went through their entire wait list last year. I'm hoping quite a few people drop so that it works out for the both of us!

    buckeyepaige - I got my letter today! I was put on the wait list! I'm currently 8th on the list too so I'm pretty sure/hopeful that I will get in! They told me that they went through their entire wait list last year so I'm pretty much on cloud nine about being 8th I hope you had similar or better luck!

    [FONT=comic sans ms]Wow. 120-130 people is MUCH better than what I was told. I was probably one of the first few people to be interviewed. My interviewee was **** and she said they were interviewing about 180 people! Perhaps that's just how many people they had apply and they cut down the number of interviews. I hope so anyways, because then we'd only have to be in the top 75% or so. And it's actually funny you should mention CSCC because that's where I am registered to take the organic biochem class. Thanks for the advice! The eastern religions course I am registered to take is online at Sinclair CC. It's been hard finding anyone else on this site that mentions Mt Carmel so I'm certainly glad I stumbled upon you We will certainly know the outcome soon!

    buckeyepaige hello! I also applied to the 2013 cohort of SDAP. I'm pretty nervous because I really have no idea how competitive of an applicant I am. I graduated my undergrad with a 3.55 gpa but probably only have around a 3.6 gpa for my pre-reqs. I have 100+ hrs worth of volunteer experience in an ER setting. One problem is that I am missing 1.5 prereq courses - organic biochem and eastern religions (I took a western religions course so that's where the .5 comes in lol), but I have registered for both in the fall. I'm also not too sure how my interview went - I think I was a little too talkative and really just not on my "A" game. I don't have a family to worry about so that's a plus. I figure with about 90ish people either getting accepted or on the waitlist, we'd have to be in the top 50% of applicants. I know my stats have to be better than others, but the question is how many others?! They told me during the interview that they went through their entire wait list last year so I'd feel pretty confident if I were to just get on that. The wait is really killing me though! We're getting the letters next week!
