    Just got off the phone wit someone from admissions. She assured me that decisions would be made before the end of the year. EEEEEEKKKKKK

    Oh man, for real? I thought they didn't let last year's applicants know until February? Did s/he give you any other details?
  4. by   Emer1234
    That was pretty much it, but I didnt ask for more details. I called to make sure the information on Solar was accurate and they had received all my documents and she said that if Solar says everything i received then it's all there. What other programs are you applying to?

    Wow, thanks for the information. I only had a paper copy of one of my recommendation letters (the professor that had given it to me has since retired and was a professor at Stony Brook, so she mailed it instead; I hope this isn't to my disadvantage...) so I will never know, I suppose, if Stony Brook has everything required. It is fantastic if we really will find out by the end of the year, because my husband and I are going to decide where to move to and I would love to be able to have an acceptance/rejection letter prior to making this decision! Thanks for posting this information.

    I applied to SUNY Downstate, but I think it would be difficult, logistically, because of where the school is located, and Stony Brook is ultimately where I want to go. They have already provided me with a wonderful undergraduate education. I'm also applying to Stony Brook's basic 2-year program (I am in the process of filling it out as we speak.)

    To where else are you applying?

    I also went to Stony Brook for my Bachellors and am in the process of completing my application to Downstate as back up. The Downstate process is giving me a headache from all the different steps required. I still need to take a Sociology and the TEAS exam for it. Did you take the TEAS?

    Oh that's great!! What did you major in at SBU? I was double majoring in Psychology/Philosophy and ultimately decided to graduate a semester early so I only got my BA in Psychology. I agree about Downstate's process being a bit over the top; I have not yet taken the TEAS exam, and according to the site, the closest place to take it when I checked was the Bronx. I would also need to take an additional math class, which I'm not too thrilled about, but at least I could do that in the Spring.

    I majored in Economics and graduated in Dec 05. Registered yesterday for the Dec 3rd TEAS in Monroe college which is in the Bronx. I really hope Stony Brook lets us know before the new year so i can skip that final Sociology I need for Downstate and save myself some money. Where did you take your science pre-reqs?
  9. by   Mindylane
    Oh wow! I graduated in 2008! I know that Downstate is less expensive, but I think SBU is better value for the $. I have taken all of my prereqs at NCC... how about yourself?

    Ok, for a second there I thought you were one of my former pre-reqs classmate. I live in the city so I took them at Borough of Manhattan Community College. I busted my behind to do good in them since my undergraduate GPA is not very good.. I wonder why the TEAS is only being offered at that place in the Bronx...
  11. by   Mindylane
    Oh, hehe, that would have been funny. I have done just okay in my prerequisites (so far, B+s in all of them). My undergraduate GPA was a 3.5, so again, just ok. I do, however, have experience in the healthcare field and I think I have pretty decent letters and personal statement. But I do think I'll be pushing it to get into the one-year program.

    Yeah, the TEAS thing is annoying. They offer it at Adelphi (which is close to me) but only for their own students. I really don't know when I will be able to get to the Bronx from where I am, but I'll have to see if it's even a possibility.

    They lie They will say anything to get you off the phone. Don't count too much on that info. Beside, sounds like they should have specified CALENDAR year vs. ACADEMIC year!
  13. by   Emer1234
    I think it's safe to say It is understood decisions are made before the academic year ends, so if she says end of the year in September she probably means end of the calendar year. I do agree that they probably tell people things to calm down their anxiety and get them off the phone. Either way it's still too early and I just wanted to make sure all my stuff was in.
