    Hey Chele - a few questions for you! I, too, applied last yr to both the one yr and the two yr and was not accepted I have reapplied to both programs but naturally am hoping for acceptance to the one yr! I retook two courses that I did not have A's in and achieved A's, I joined a pediatric team in my hometown as a med asst and I joined the CFC program at SBU children's as a volunteer... I am hoping this proves my dedication and willingness to "do whatever it takes" to get in... did you alter your essay and/or grades? What is your undergrad GPA? You must be freaking out like me! Good luck to you, I feel good things coming our way!
    Hi Kace,
    I altered my essay slightly. I got what I believe are better recommendation letters. I didn't retake any classes because my undergrad gpa was a 3.2 and I received an A in all my other prereq's for this program, with the acceptation of a B and a B+. I have been working for SB for the past year as a nursing assistant as well. I've volunteered in the past at a local hospital and am currently volunteering with a dog rescue where I am the foster program director for the past 4 years. This is my third year in a row applying to both programs. I made it onto the alternate list last year, so I'm really hoping that this year is my year! I'm not freaking out as much as I did the past two years. Good luck, I hope we will be in class together.

    CONGRATS!! I got accepted as well!!

    The only sucky part though is that we have only 10 days to respond I applied to Binghamton as well, so I hope Binghamton will let us know soon. But for now, I'll be celebrating!! Hope to hear of more acceptances

    I was accepted!!! It seriously can't believe it. I read the email like 5 times already! Thank you to everyone especially Paco, you gave me great tips about the importance of the LORs and personal statement but also the courage to apply with a not so amazing GPA . Can't wait to meet everyone!

    According to the Binghamton BAT thread, most people found out around mid jan to late feb ( do we have to pay a deposit once we accept?

    I accepted it, but didn't see anything about a deposit.
