Hi all, I just submitted my application to Binghamton for the BAT program for next fall. Didn't see a discussion board yet so figured I would start one. Any other applicants out there?... Read More

    I got my acceptance package too, is anyone else confused about it though? The acceptance letter says Summer 2013 and then the admissions deposit letter says Fall 2013. Super confused?

    I got the acceptance e-mail a few days ago!!! I'm so excited! I wouldn't worry, for those of you that have not heard yet.. I was getting anxious seeing all of you guys get accepted so I sent an e-mail and heard that I was accepted a day later!! As for the deposit, the program starts in the summer of 2013, but technically the application is for fall 2013, so that could be where all of the confusion is coming from. I can't wait to meet all of you fellow BAT's!! If anyone has any questions about binghamton feel free to message me.. I just graduated from there this December.

    good for you lwalter!!! How's the weather there!! I'm only coming from Long Island so it's not like I'm a stranger to snow but I really don't do well in the cold...I guess I'm hoping the weather isn't that bad in Binghamton..!

    I actually really love Binghamton in the summer. I spent this past summer there taking prereqs for this program. The fall isn't terrible either .. these past two falls have been very mild in binghamton! That being said, the weather is kind of laughed at there, as it is usually ridiculous! It can be 60 and sunny one minute and rainy and freezing the second! I never know what to wear, and it can get freezing cold, but I guess I've gotten used to it. As long as the winters stay as mild as they have been, we'll be fine

    @lwalter2: CONGRATS!!! who did you email, if i may ask? im getting sooo anxious cus everyone else has heard of a decision and i still havent, as im sure there are others too.

    i graduated from bing this past may, so feel free to ask me any questions about it as well. binghamton can be quite ugly in terms of the weather. its bipolar and its cold quite often. the only nice weather comes in the first 1 1/2 months of fall semester and last 1 1/2 months of spring semester lols. during the summer, it gets brutally hot there too :/

    Does anyone know how big the nursing class is?

    Hm sort of sounds like Long Island! It was 59 degrees yesterday and today its grey and tomorrow it's supposed to snowstorm 4 inches. Winter here is totally erratic too....I remember a few weeks ago it was SO cold and windy I could hardly breathe outside but then like I said it was in the high 50s for a week. Weird!

    @spiritedkid .. search fran on the binghamton website.. i'm pretty sure there is only one in the nursing department. If you e-mail her, she should get back to you in a day or so with the decision!

    @ peachypeach.. i heard there's about 90 for the BAT program!

    Ohh nice number! I like small. NYU had a couple hundred in the Accelerated nursing class!

    Yeah it's pretty competitive, the cheapest as far as new york programs go and a very highly rated program. I'm so excited

    @lwalter2: oh hey, i spent this past summer taking pre-reqs too! i was taking anatomy & physio 1. and yeah i emailed fran last week asking when the decision would be made and she said hopefully by the end of the week, but obviously i havent heard back. i emailed her a lot during the application process so i feel like i may be annoying her hahah

    yeahs, about 90 or so sounds about right

    Wow I can't believe I got in. I'm so happy! I was this close to starting at NYU but thanking God I got that email last week. I feel so much better about Binghamton. I feel like NYU just wants money
