    Hello everyone. Here we go again! This will be my third consecutive year applying to the ABSN at SB. I made it to the alternate list this current program, but never received a spot. I'm in the process of filling out my application. I have all my recommendations in place and just need to finish up my personal statement. Good luck to everyone.

    Hey everyone. This will be my first time applying to Stony Brook one year accelerated program and I'm excited. Any advice will be helpful. I was reading the 2013 thread and I got scared because I guess its more competitive than I thought. Good luck to everyone.

    Hello LittlePat, no need to be intimidated. It is competitive but you really don't know what the admissions office bases their decision on, so you just have to be patient and control the things that you can (references, personal statement, submit your app early).

    And best of luck to you Chele118. It is a grueling process (as our old friend Paco said it during the app period last year). I'm just glad I don't have to do it again lol

    Hi everyone,
    I am applying to the accelerated program also. I am both excited and anxious. I keeping researching online but it looks like there is no exact formula to their admissions decisions. Feeling great that my application is completed and submitted so I can try to stop obsessing till April???

    Good luck everyone!

    Hi Chele118,

    When did they let you know that you were on the wait list?

    Thanks Chele118, I appreciate the luck. Are there any other accelerated programs that people are applying to other than Stony Brook? Stony Brook is definitely my top choice but alot of the other programs have later deadline dates so I have more time to submit those others.

    I received an email from the school on Feb. 13 that I was placed on the alternate list.

    Just submitted my application for the ABSN. I sure hope "the third time is a charm"

    Good luck! I'm applying as well. I had no idea the application deadline was approaching so soon and am so behind! Did you apply anywhere else?

    Stony Brook is the only school I want to go to. This will be the third year I am applying to both the one year accelerated and the basic two year programs.

    Hey guys! I wish you all the best of luck. Just a little word of advice apply to the 2 year program as well if you have the extra classes. I was placed on the alternate list for the accelerated as well, but got into the 2 year program. I also know of people denied from the 2 yr that got into the 1 yr. so really no rhyme or reason lol. Just do your very best.
