    Hi g0090,

    May I ask what were your credentials?

    As soon as I hear from financial aid I will start a facebook group if one is not started already ... I'm still waiting to hear back from a few other school in the northeast and what they will offer for aid as well.

    I had a 3.8 for a previous degree in Anthropology/Social work and 4 A's and 2 B+'s for pre-reqs. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in East Africa for 2 years, thats where the word 'mzungu' comes from, it means white person in Swahili.

    I can't wait to meet everyone, I'm about 99% sure I'll be accepting this offer to NYU. Good luck to everyone else still waiting.

    That is impressive! Congrats on your acceptance! I am extremely nervous since I will only be graduating from UCONN in May so I don't have the same experience. It seems that they sent out the notifications again today, does anyone know if they send them on Fridays; maybe I still have hope?! I am getting so nervous.

    I am extremely jealous of everyone that can accept without having to see their financial aid first... sigh.

    @Lalala120 I only applied to NYU and Samuel Merritt here in California. Decisions for Samuel Merritt won't be out until June so I have no choice but to accept the offer ahead of time. =/ Also I'm planning on taking out loans to pay for most of school.

    @shygstgurl my facebook name is Luke Glaude. Feel free to add on the facebook group. Maybe something like NYU Fall 2012 Accelerated Students?

    Financial aid is killing me right now, but I'm pretty much in the same situation as you; the other schools to which I applied will only get back to me after it's too late.

    Sure tiala, I have a BA in Econ with a lowly 3.0 GPA, but my pre-req GPA is 4.0. I also have over 100 hours of volunteer experience as well as certification as a phlebotomist.

    @shygstgurl I'm from SF and am waiting on a decision from Samuel Merritt too for Fall. Thanks for the heads up on the June notifications. I don't understand why they take so long...

    @g0090 I think it's because they are still going through applications for Summer 2012

    @Mzungu10 Is your profile pic of you in a hat and a shirt with a B on it?

    I was accepted to the accelerated BSN for fall 2012. I am a senior Biology Major, Business Major, at Cornell University. Looking forward to getting to know you all- please let me know the name of the facebook group so I can request to join!

    I was thinking of calling the Facebook group NYU ABSN Fall 2012 does that sound good?

    Like alot of you guys- this financial aid wait is making me a nervous wreck. I emailed the financial aid office a few days ago- but haven't heard anything back. Does anyone know if in years past- did any accelerated students get offered scholarships? I was accepted to another great program that is significantly cheaper. I want to go to NYU, but I'm feeling alot of anxiety thinking about student loans. I stayed up all night yesterday churning the numbers in my head and making myself sick. To be honest, I am just scared to death that 5 years from now I will be facing that debt and thinking 'why did I do this?' I know NYU would be an awesome experience, but I hope someone else out there has been feeling this way too about the huge loans? I'm not trying to be negative, I am just freaked out.
