Hello all, I just received a letter from Drexel saying that my application for the ACE program is now complete and I'm waiting for a response. I was wondering if anyone else here is applying for the... Read More

    I just received my provisional acceptance to the Drexel ACE program (pending on completion of the prerequisite - I actually just filed my FAFSA last week - does anyone know how long it takes for the financial aid package to arrive? Thanx.

    Congrats lhtanyu!...how many more prerequisites do you have to complete? It shouldn't take too long before you receive your award letter...a few weeks may be. I received mine before I received my admission letter, but I filed my FAFSA before I applied sooo...don't worry you'll get it soon.
    Are you from NJ by any chance? Are you going to Drexel for sure?

    I'm actually from the Philadelphia area- I moved here two years ago to do graduate work but have found it unsatisfactory and just recently decided to switch to nursing. I'm definitely going to drexel- i'm just worried about the financial aid package...

    Congrats lhtanyu! What were you doing before your switch?

    Yeah lhtanyu...I don't want to disappoint you, I don't know what your financial situation is, but I wouldn't hope for a lot of money because it's a second degree. I'm worried about how I'm going to pay for it too. If I decide to go to Drexel (or any other school) I'll have to take private loans...I have never done this before and I don't know how it works...I'm not sure how easy it is to get the money...

    So, I talked to Tina at Drexel and I've got the word on my status.

    Basically, I have a seat for Spring, but I am on "hold" because i NEED an A in the current class I'm taking to be fully accepted into the program. My undergrad GPA was too low and with my additional A's, it brought my GPA up to just over a 3.0. They want to make sure I'm solid in my sciences, so I'll have to send them updated transcripts once this summer session is over.

    I'm taking A&P II right now its incredibly rough as it's just a 7 week course instead of 15, my teacher is the department head, and she is also an MD and treats us like med students! we're all clueless. So I'm nervous about this.

    We'll see!

    I took A&PII and Micro last summer back to back, so I perfectly understand what you mean. It wasn't easy but I managed to get A's in both...plus, in my college the summer classes are only 5 weeks long ...you just have to study and you'll be fine! Are you taking another class in Summer II session in case you don't get an A in A&P? I'm taking Statistics right now and even though I have very strong background in math and science, I find it kind of hard to take this class in such a short period of time...

    I took statistics during a regular semester and it nearly killed me :-P It's a hard subject, and my professor was....well. One of my classmates dropped after the first test and was able to get in to another section and I should have followed her lead. I'll leave it at that. :-P :-P :-P

    Hi! Yeah I'm taking Micro for the second summer session as well. I'm just going to have to do the best I can.. I've decided I'm also going to photocopy all of my EMT certification stuff and send that along with a letter as well. Just doing everything I can..
  11. by   BibaBibaa
    Yeah, hopefully they will take all that into a consideration...I think if you get an A and a B in those two you'll make the cut.
    Enjoy the weekend...I'm working all weekend long

    Hi again cocobelly,
    I'm currently in an A&P class with an MD who does the same thing, I just figured I'd always study the diseases involved because she loves to ask about those on tests!

    I havent received the letter which tells exactly which prerequisite courses I need to take- does anyone know how long that takes for them to mail that out? Also, I applied to the philadelphia community college in order to take those classes but I havent heard back from them yet and I mailed my application two weeks ago. Should I call?
