Very helpful advice...I will use it! Thank you!
Awesome! Now I just need to figure out how to join it...haha...I found it and 'liked' it but it's not showing under my pages in FB...so I'm not sure how to join it. Do you know?
I noticed it was an open group page...We may want to make it a closed group page so we can all feel comfortable posting throughout the term. I've noticed on other group pages, they are pretty open about what they like, what they don't like...in terms of classes/professors/etc,. Making it a closed group ensures that anyone that is not a 'friend' (such as professors), can't see our posts. I'm not too tech savvy when it comes to FB, so I'm not sure how it can be changed....but I thought I'd throw it out there.
Maybe someone can help us....please:-)
I think Gabrielle is starting a FB for Stratford.
I didn't get anything on NALC either....I assume we will eventually. I'll post if I get anything.
Crystal & Lianna,
Congrats!! Look forward to meeting you both as well.
Do you want to start the FB page? Lindsay (from Fall 2012) said she started theirs and posted it on this website, and many people found it before the semester started (others joined after orientation). Let me know if you're going to do it.
I had my complete application in by mid-July. However, when I called the school in August, I was told that they don't start looking at the application until after the Sept. 1st deadline....so I'm not sure it mattered much that I applied early.
My cumulative gpa is about a 3.72. I don't have any real healthcare experience. I was a teacher, and also worked in a special services school with autistic children. I was nervous about that too. I read many people who currently work in hospitals and doctor's offices, and was scared that they were going to overlook me because my work experience lacked the healthcare environment.
However, I think that if you have a strong GPA, good recommendation letters, and meet all the pre-requisites, you will be fine. I think Newark may be more competitive simply because it's a central location that probably gets many more applicants.
I called the school a few times to check the status of my application. Although they wouldn't tell me the decision on the phone, the girl said that she was waiting for information from the admissions department, which was the reason for the delay. She acknowledged that she could see on the computer whether I did or did not get in, but wasn't allowed to say. The paperwork I received had some info on the UMDNJ/RUTGERS merge, so I think the hold up was the other paperwork they put into the acceptance letter envelope.
I would call the school and check on the status. It can't hurt (as long as you're not calling every day). I would just ask when you might find out and if they can tell you what is the reason for the delay. Again, not sure if Newark works the same way.
Good luck...try and relax (I know...I was running to mailbox every day and was very stressed out).
Let us know how you make out
I'm going to ask one of the girls that are currently in Level 1 about the FB page. I know that I've been reading blogs and FB, and read somewhere that the school will help set up the FB page. My guess is that since they are the ones who know all of the accepted students, they can help send out the friend requests to everyone. I don't think they'd give that info to us and it might be hard to find everyone (at least until orientation). I'll let you know what I find out
You said you applied to other schools....what if you get into another school?
I'm definitely going to UMDNJ. It's the only school I applied to and only one I wanted to go to (so I am super happy that I got accepted because there was zero back-up plan...lol!)
Well...we definitely should kick back and relax for the upcoming holidays because from what I've been told, we are in for a lot of work come January...haha! And I actually can't wait!!
My name is Kim, btw
Hi Gabrielle,Your the first Stratford student that I've heard from besides myself. I guess the letters just started going out. I'm sure we'll all get in touch. I was told that the fall 2012 class has 41 students in Stratford....not sure if that's typical. They also have a FB page and use that to discuss the program, assignments, etc...Definitely think the Spring 2013 students should do the same thing. Congrats and I look forward to meeting you!!
I just got my acceptance letter in the mail today...I'm so excited!!!! I'll be at Stratford so let me know when you hear back...can't wait to meet everyone and start in January
I applied to Stratford...nothing yet. I called and was told that we should hear by end of October (I was told Sept originally).I'm so anxious...I am praying I get in.
Hi! I applied to UMDNJ (Stratford) for the accelerated BSN program for Spring 2013. I'm anxiously waiting for a letter in the mail. I called and was told I would hear by end of Sept....called today and was told I would hear by end of Oct.!If anyone is in the same boat, please let me know when you find out if you were accepted and I'll do the same!
If anyone has applied to UMDNJ Accelerated BSN program for Spring 2013 and hears anything or gets an acceptance letter, please post! I am still waiting to hear and I was told originally that I would hear by the end of September...but I just called and was told I will hear by the end of October! I really need to know for work purposes, as well as my sanity...haha.
