    Thanks for the financial info. I decided to do UDM for sure. With the grants I got for my transfer GPA, I think it actually works out to be less expensive than UMich. I hope you all get good news soon!

    Spartan89, is there a long wait for UDM? Or were you already accepted and waiting to decide which? When do you start? And congratulations on having a solid game plan!

    I was already accepted and waiting to decide. I had originally planned to defer and wait to hear from UMich but I got impatient and didn't have any realistic idea about what my chances were like on the waitlist. My main issue was cost anyways...UDM's program looks ridiculously expensive on paper ($53,000) but I was awarded over $20,000 in grant money for my undergrad GPA being above a 3.5. And I can still apply for other aid and scholarships! I start in May. There is no wait and they get back to you quickly. May is full, and the next cohort starts in January.

    Yay. Good for you. My sister got her BSN from UDM, traditional, about 25 years ago. It's a great school. My undergrad gpa is 3.8, I wonder, do they automatically give you the grant, or do they guide you by giving you info on what to apply for? I'm happy for you! I think I may apply. I too saw the cost and turned away!

    They automatically award it. I was shocked because I thought the $7000 was a one time thing, but it turns out it's every semester! I can't say much about the program because I haven't started yet, but I was very impressed at orientation. The faculty and Dean/Assistant Dean all stopped in to encourage us, and even told us we could call their cell phones at any time with questions. Thy were up front about how tough the program is, but they emphasized how much they are on our side and want us to succeed

    Has anyone heard anything or know of anyone who has gotten a decision recently?

    I haven't heard a thing. Mind you, I am the only one I know who is applying to UM's ABSN program. Either they haven't released acceptances yet or this is one unlucky group of people commenting on this thread. Hopefully we'll all get good news soon.

    Still word....I'm not keeping all my eggs in U of M's basket though....I have also applied to OU, so I'm double waiting!

    My husband spoke to one of his co-workers who's wife is on the faculty in the SON and found out that the delay is likely due to their still trying to get the new program approved. I guess it has been going up in front of different committees for some time and is still not 100% set in stone. I suppose it makes sense that they want to get all of that settled before they get a class committed to it. Thought you guys might like to know.

    kfj6703: Thanks for the update!!

    Yes, thank you for the update. While the waiting is hard, that does make sense. I definitely wouldn't want to commit to a program before knowing for sure how long it would it be...

    I hope we all get some good news soon!

    Hi! This is my first time posting; I check all the time to see if anyone has heard anything, though. I just received an email letting me know I was accepted into the program. I wanted to post because I know we are all dying to hear any information. I hope all of you heard too, or are hearing soon! I checked on Wolverine Access and you can see on your profile under "Application Status" next to "View Credentials" a link showed up that says "View Decision." Again, best of luck!

    Congrats to you and I'm sure we all appreciate you letting us know there has been some movement with notices going out. This prompted me to check, but still no word either way.

    I have actually pretty much decided upon an accelerated program in Madison, WI that I was accepted too. But still curious about what my fate eventually is for Michigan.

    Good luck to all
