    Did you hear that rumor for this year's class or just the years to come?
    I heard it starts with the class beginning this June. Still trying to confirm this though.

    Hello All,

    I thought some of you might have advice for me since you are familiar withe the type of applicant SBU accepts. I wanted to know if I have a decent chance of acceptance for the accelerated program for the upcoming year. These are my stats:

    Undergraduate GPA: Stony Brook University 3.4 Double Major Psychology and English, Deans List, Study Abroad
    Graduate GPA: 3.9 Queens College Applied Linguistics/tesol, Taught overseas in Vietnam summer 2011

    Research Exp: Stony Brook Research Assistant in a Psychology Lab, Spring 2010 studying Women's Health
    Healthcare Exp: One year as a Medical Assistant 2010-2011
    Currently I am NYC teacher. I teach Junior High ESL

    I am still finishing up my pre-reqs so I don't know what my science/math gpa will be but probably between 3.5-3.7

    I applied to Molloy who will accept me without pre-reqs but it is expensive and seeing as I am a Stony Brook grad I would love to go back there. At first I didn't think I had a shot because my undergrad grades are not great, but I might regret not trying. If Molloy accepts me and I decline in hopes of getting into SBU, and I dont get int, I may have lost my shot at Molloy also. Anyone have any advice?

    Hey NesSa87 - I think SBU cares a lot more about your character than about your GPA (as long as it's above a certain level). Write a kick-butt essay, present your passion to pursue nursing, brush up on your arithmetic skills and interview-type questions, and you've got as good a chance as anyone.

    Thanks for the advice. I probably should have applied to SBU first, and then Molloy. I honestly didn't think I had a shot at SBU. Are you going into the program this year? If you are, would you mind sharing the kinds of things you feel helped you get in? (i.e. work/life experience, GPA, references)
