Pace University: NY

  1. Hello everyone:

    I sent my application for Pace University earlier this year for the acc BSN program and I am still waiting for an answer as to whether or not I have been accepted. Is anyone else also waiting on an answer from Pace, or has anyone received an answer? I would also like some feedback from anyone who graduated from the program..how long did it take for you and receive a decision letter and what are your opinions about the program?

    I wouldn't just want to apply one college only....What happen if there are 500 people applying for the program. To increase the chances...you must apply as many as possible. That is what I did....
    Good luck!

    Unfortunately, there weren't many that I was qualified for at this time...in addition: I was limited on funds needed for application fees, transcripts requests, etc....I did get accepted to LIU- BK campus and passed the NET exam from the LPN man/brooklyn program...however Pace U is my first choice

    You have been accepted...
    Why are you still looking around for that perfect one...
    Some people don't even have a chance to get accepted....

    With LIU, I would have to finish the
    general education before doing the nursing classes,
    which means more time and much more money...
    The Pace program is accelerated, which means less time and money

    I agree with you NY dreamer!
    I have the same " issue" I guess it is a good problem to have!!
    I was so exited when I was accepted to my 2nd choice school !! However, I still want to know if my 1st choice will come through, for pretty much the same reasons! They have alot of "strange" core and nursing req's at LIU that I would have to take a least a semester of.
    I feel very lucky that I got in, but I don't feel greedy for waiting for a reply from NYU!

    Then...this is a pretty good reason...
    I would do the same thing if I were you....
    Anyhow, good luck to whatever you do in the future....

    well guys, I just got a letter from Pace saying that I was not accepted to the acc program...no worries, just wished they didn't wait 4 months to tell me...I'm glad I got accepted to LIU and hope they accept enough credits to make my journey a semester or two faster...I also passed the NET exam for the free LPN program through the adult learning center...just waiting for the interview...themI will have to decide if I should get the LPN first, then bridge to RN...or just go through the RN

    Hopefully, we will be working side by side in the future.
    Study hard!
    Good luck!

    I am sorry to hear that, but you are so lucky you already know you have a great place to go!!
    I will most likely get the same news in a couple of weeks, so who knows- maybe I'll see you in the fall

    NYDreamer CONGRATULATIONS!!! Just be careful of LIU-- I know that a number of folks were shut out of clinical for the Fall semester and have been put on a waiting lists. Be sure to register early so you can be one the first to get a spot. Congratulations!!!!!!!

    -Pace University--it's their lost!

    wow, WSmith16! thanks...I didn't know it was that serious..I have two friends that got their BSNs from LIU, and they never mentioned the possibility of waiting lists
