    does anyone know the travelling from brooklyn, new york to Univ. of Rochester by car or by train? and how long is the traveling for both: car and trains?

    By car it is about 6 hours, I lived in Brooklyn and visited my now husband in Rochester every 3 weeks. I also took the train Amtrak a few times and depending on which train you take it varies. If you get the one that leaves at 7am & 1:20 pm Penn Station it is 6+ hours maybe 6.5. The one that leaves at 10am & 3:45pm are both 7 hours. That is just to downtown and add 15-20 minutes to reach U of R.

    Hope that helps

    I didn't have the best grades ever either and I was deathly afraid of not getting in to a nursing program. I finally realized that you just have to put yourself out there. If you don't apply you'll never know, so I say give it a shot! It worked out for me.

    thats very true...i mean my grades are decent i had a hard major (Biology). Its just that it seems like evryone applying has medical school grades..dont mean to offend anyone just that every one that ive met so far seem to be perfect...Well ive read somewhere that they take in consideration the course difficulty rather than the grade....they rather see a B in genetics than an A in intro to art..ive also spoke to my schools advisors and they did say its competitve however its not all they look at....which nursing school are you attending?

    I'm in the University of Rochester's accelerated nursing program. I know they don't just base their acceptance on grades because I applied with a sociology major with only so-so grades, but I worked in a hospital for 2 years and I had a really good interview. Grades are important, but they're not everything. A person's ambition to be in the nursing profession counts for a lot.

    Just reading some of your replies....and as a graduate of the ABPNN program in 2006 I just wanted to let you all know that you have chosen a great program. It can be a bit challenging at times, but well worth it in the end! Good luck to everyone!

    Hi Everyone!
    I actually have a phone interview for U of R tomorrow. Any last minute advice from any students/former students? Just wondering what to expect, and forgot to check this board until today! I'm definitely excited about the interview...U of R is my top choice right now.

    Hi! I have an interview with U of R and I was wondering if anyone could offer any insight

    I had my phone interview last week. There wasn't much to it, about 20 minutes. I was asked what I've been doing and how I came to want to be a nurse. That was really the only question, and we started talking from there. I did have some questions prepared, so that was helpful. At the end, she explained the rest of the admissions process. Not too stressful an interview. Although I'm not sure what might differ if you have an in-person interview. Anyways, good luck!
