    Hi Breukelen,

    In your letter of admission, did it include a financial aid package? Also, do you know if one is taking the nursing classes only, would they still be considered a full time student for financial aid purposes?

    After this summer, I would have all prerequisites completed and I'm concerned about that by taking only the nursing classes which is 8 credits that I would not receive full aid.

    (All this acceptance talk is still wishful thinking. I have to call Tuesday for my unofficial decision)

    Thanks

    I applied for the traditional track also. I have two little guys too. So it's easier for me to be in school when they are. Plus I stil need developmental physc and ethics.

    Hi nylady07,

    I'm sorry for the late response. They emailed me my letter of acceptance and no it does not include a financial aid package. I've completed all the prereqs. I've been accepted to the ATOP program which is 21 months and I'm not sure how it will work out with my finances. The first year I was told that I would still be able to work full time and the 2nd year, I'll probably have to quit and go to school full time.

    I hope this helsp and congrats on your acceptance into the school

    Do you mind me asking you how much time are they giving you to acknowledge the letter of acceptance and to send in the deposit?

    Thanks.

    That's awesome! Congrats
    The interview felt similar to a job interview. I was asked what accomplishment I was most proud of. She asked me about my work experience (because I work full time and I submitted my resume, about my goals and what I wanted to do with my nursing degree.
    Let me know if you have any other questions

    Exactly what breukelen said. Also, they will ask if you applied to any other schools ( my interviewer said that it shows how serious you are about becoming a nurse) and what is your greatest strength and weakness. Your interviewer may refer back to your essay (as mine did) so re-read it before you go. If you have children, they may ask if you have a support system in place for them in case of emergencies because it's hard to make up clinicals.

    @ breukelen

    Thanks so much! Hopefully we get to see each other there.

    I didn't receive a timeframe to acknowledge acceptance but from reading other older threads, I'm assuming its about the end of may / early june.

    in my acceptance letter, they only gave me two weeks to respond
    i'm still waiting to hear back from other schools which won't get back to me until mid-April (possibly past their deadline) and now i'm half freaking out becauase I'm not sure what i should do at this point..

    i think part of the reason they ask you what other schools you've applied to is to also let those other schools know that you're going to beth israel after you've submitted the deposit..

    Did the letter state how much the deposit is and if it has to be sent back with the response?

    So now I'm kind of in tough spot. I applied to dorothea hopfer and am scheduled to take the teas on 4/13. And I'm sure its going to take at least 2 weeks after to that get any word from them. I might not have enough time to consider the two if I only get 2 weeks after receiving the acceptance letter. I wanted to compare the finanical aid packages before I decide. Beth Israel is my absolute first choice but I still wanted another option just in case.

    If I don't have to send in a deposit with my response then I'm ok.
