NYU ABSN Fall 2013 Entry

  1. Hello everyone! I have submitted my application and my transcripts to NYU for the ABSN program beginning in fall 2013! I am very excited but surprised that we will be hearing so late about an admission decision. Is anyone else applying?

    I'm applying. Still pulling together all my letters/etc. Does anyone know NYU's acceptance rate?

    I attended an open house last week and they said the acceptance rate is 35%.

    I was told the 35% acceptance rate as well Nmh, what else did you learn at the open house?

    I am applying as well. Most likely submitting my application by March 1st (priority deadline). How are you guys submitting the letters of recommendation ? Are you mailing them or providing them with envelopes ?

    They stressed that they do not only look at GPA, essay and recommendations are important. They have accepted people with below a 3.0 and rejected people with above a 3.0 based on the rest of the application.

    So do we hear by April 1st? I'm a bit confused from different things I've been hearing and reading!

    Im also slightly confused, but from what I read you find out on a rolling basis. The previous posts found out in April. However some did in May.

    Good luck to all the applicants! I applied for the Spring 2013 ABSN program and was accepted in early November 2012. My situation is a little bit different though because I have a few pre-reqs to still complete which I'm doing now at NYU (in my case, I'm now considered a "regular" nursing student until I finish my pre-reqs, then I transition into the "accelerated" BSN program for Fall 2013). So, I will be joining those of you that chose NYU for this Fall!!

    Not sure if I can offer any help or insight, but I'd be happy to answer any questions I can about the application process as I just went through it, thankfully with success, yeah!

    Best of luck
