Any applicants to the Georgetown ABSN program for Fall 2011 out there? I have been reading old threads from last year and for applicants to Spring 2011, but it would be nice to have a place for Fall 2011 applicants to talk. ... Read More

    hey i'm debating between gw and gtown as well, i do not know how to private message though... i don't know about gtown b/c it's so expensive and even if i apply to the scholarship we do not find out until august and by then we will have had to pay the $900 deposit!
    and i have also heard mixed reviews about washington hospital.

    I don't think it would be as late as August... The brochure indicates mid-April for issuing the decisions. Granted, they are behind just in getting out the admissions decisions, but I don't think they'd make people wait that long to issue scholarship decisions - they know people have to make decisions based on that. At least I hope they wouldn't wait that long!

    Hi bendn,

    I have a friend who also applied, and as of yesterday afternoon (when I got my response), she hadn't heard anything either. Hope that helps!

    It does, thanks! Wasn't sure whether or not I should send an email or contact their office.

    Does anyone know if there will be an accepted students' day any time soon (c2011, I know you said you asked about this)? Or if they are receptive to accepted students visiting the campus? I have scoured the website for as much as I can, but nothing beats visiting, talking to faculty, and getting their "pitch."

    Hopkins knocked my socks off at their accepted students day and my deposit there is due May 1. So I am hoping to learn more about Georgetown and have the same opportunity to fall in love with them too. It's going to be a very tough decision, especially when I factor in the potential scholarship, which we probably won't hear about before May 1.

    I am going to need a killer pro/con chart to figure this one out!

    Hi LizLemon and others,

    True to form, GT responded within 24 hours to my email about admitted students day and the scholarship interviews. Here is what they said:

    "We will be sending out an email shortly with information on our admitted student events and WHC scholarship interviews. The admitted student events will take place in the afternoons of Friday, April 29th and Friday, May 6th. WHC will be conducting scholarship interviews on the mornings of Saturday, April 30th; Monday, May 2nd; and Saturday, May 7th. WHC will then release the scholarship decisions the week following the final interview session on the 7th."

    I must say that Georgetown has a much better response time to emails than George Washington. I was accepted at George Washington, and have emailed and called with several questions since, but have heard nothing back. I even had to submit my $275 deposit to GW without any of my questions being answered. Not sure that response time can be used to measure program quality, but it's hard to not feel somewhat influenced by this type of thing.

    Best,
    Claire
