    Well, I have heard "bad" things about it too, in the sense that it is VERY difficult to get through. I have heard fewer negative comments about their two-year program, though. I checked their pass rates since 2008, and they had a 98% pass rate for 2010 and it looks like the class size has steadily increased, which suggests that perhaps the program is getting a bit better. It is definitely more expensive (I think I figured it out to be around 44k) but seems like a reasonable back-up plan, and less expensive than Columbia or NYU.
    I've heard bad things about it as well. I'm going to wait until after I hear from Stony Brook and possibly apply if I don't get in. It is one of the less expensive private schools (but still a lot).

    You have as good a chance as anyone else! Not everyone that gets in has the same exact credentials. It is all about the total application. There is really no way to tell how admissions pick who they do.

    Not to scare y'all ... consider it a heads up!

    Just popping in to say to those of you that will get in for next year: Get ready to do a lot of writing in the fall. And I mean a LOT! Care plans, weekly logs, process recordings, management plans, reaction papers, Powerpoints! This of course is in addition to the quizzes, exams and HESI.

    While you're waiting, brush up on your APA format skills. You're going to live and breathe it for these assignments!

    Back to my paper ...

    Has anyone heard anything about when we'll be notified if we were accepted or not? I'm hoping since the application deadline was earlier we'll be notified earlier than last year.

    Also, does anyone know how many applications they get for the accelerated program. At an info session I went to they said they received 1100 total for both nursing programs. Just wondering how many of those are just for the accelerated.

    Last I heard, we won't know until mid January. I wish they would let us know before the basic 2 year apps are due, it stinks to pay another application fee if I don't have to.

    Where'd you hear that from? I was hoping for a different response. I want to figure out my life!
