    I'm not done yet actually, I just started the accelerated program at Stony Brook. I don't think the work is hard to understand it's just that there is so much information to learn. I don't work but I have a few classmates that do work part time. I don't know how they find the time, because we are taking 18 credits for the summer session. This week alone we have 3 midterms and a paper due. So I'm going to hit the books now.

    Good Luck with your mid-terms...I know someone in the accelerated program and she says it's very time consuming. As much as I love SBU I couldn't bring myself to apply to their nursing program. Only because of the distance it is from Brooklyn. But anyway...just wanted to wish you luck.

    First of all, good luck on your summer courses.
    Another question is that: Do you think accelerated program in Stony Brook will be too much for one student with a BA in arts? Thank you.

    Hi...
    I just graduated from phase one of the ETP (Entry To Practice) program at Columbia in May. It began last June and went through the beginning of May. It was a lot of work, especially in the beginning when we had the most classes and a lot of new information is being taught. It wasn't unbearable in my opinion, although a lot of work and study may be necessary to be very successful. I also don't have kids or a family that I have to take care of; if you do, that could factor into everything. You might not get to see your friends as much as you like, but it is only a short amount of time. I worked per diam as an ICU tech (a job I held before starting school) occasionally--maybe one weekend a month (two eight hour shifts) and during holiday breaks. I preferred to have most of my time free for school assignments and RELAXING! Don't forget school can be stressful and it is important to take time for yourself to unwind and do things you like to do. I was also lucky to form friendships with the other people in my clinical group--great people who understood what I was going through and were so helpful!!!

    I hope I helped answer some of your questions, although I went to a different school from the ones you listed...Good luck with your applications!!!!!!!!!!!

    HI Laura,
    I am also applying to NYC acclelerated programs and wanted to know how everything is going? I would like to work also ....just bc it is hard to understand how someone can live in NY without income somewhere. Please let me know what program you are in and what the pace is. Thanks!

    Hello, Asterias Aureus,
    Congrats on your graduation from Columbia ETP Program.
    I just applied to to this program, but I am not sure whether I get some chance of being admitted. I think I can get A in all science courses and my general GPA in undergraduate is around 3.5 and the major GPA is 3.7.
    If it's proper, could you tell me what else I can do for my application? I really want to join in that program.
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Isabel
