    Hi Kris10noel,

    I submitted my application last week. My personal statement held me up as well. I wanted to make sure it really expressed what I wanted to say. Yes this Monday is the deadline. Good luck!

    I applied as well! I am waiting for them to receive my transcript, and for one more person to submit their recommendation. I'm so nervous. lol.

    I also applied to CNR and LIU. My preference is Stony Brook, CNR, then LIU.

    Good Luck!

    Hey Ozgur404 my essay is done, I'm just having friends and family edit it for me. I hope to submit all by tomorrow. My essay is 5 pages. I think they want no less than 3 no more than 5. You're lucky you have all A's. I don't. however, I just started a job at SBU medicine as a CNA so I hope that helps me somehow. It's gonna be competitive, it always is ... Anywhere and everywhere. Best of luck to you!!

    I will submit tomorrow too , i don't wanna wait until Monday . i didn't want to bother admission team by reading long essay.. since they gonna read a lotttt essay it better short and clear but pure information which reflect you..

    I hope we will get in the program .. But as you know the grade not the key for program . they key is for the program actually the essay .. In addition you have CNA , so you are familiar already to nursing . I work at hotel in NYC . i had business degree with 4 year accountant experience from my country. So I hope my work experience and hospitality experience will help me cross finger for all of us.

    also i got accepted one of CUNY college in Brooklyn for nursing and i am starting there but is A.S. degree which will take 2 year, plus 2 more yr for BSN. well long way.. its my backup .. def wanna go SBU.. Cant imagine big campus and hospital in it ..so much opportunity to do practice

    good luck all of us.

    Questions regarding the seats in the program- there are a total of 72 of us i believe, with over 700 applicants. Our decisions were delayed, i did not find out until May 10th. However, last year, they were going through the re-accreditation process which was a reason for the delay. The prior year heard mid-April. Good luck to you all!
