Georgetown ABSN Fall 2011 - page 9

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

    Claire,

    I've had the same fantastic experiences with Georgetown throughout this process! It has been pretty seamless.

    I got the same information regarding the admitted students day! How many of you all are going to be able to attend? I know a lot of people aren't in the DC area.

    I'm curious if anybody who got into Georgetown is not going to apply for the WHC scholarship. 3 years commitment is substantial and I can see why people moving from far away might be unsure about signing up for that! I'd love to hear what you all are thinking!

    Best of luck to everybody!

    Thanks for the information on the accepted students and WHC interviews, Claire! I'm waiting to hear from one more school before I decide on schools, but I'm really excited that I got into Georgetown!

    To be honest, the WHC three year commitment is pretty intimidating, but I've heard lots of good things about the hospital. My father is a physician and he said that getting into a hospital program is one of the best things you can do as a student because you get guaranteed hands-on experience and will have a job immediately after graduation. But I can completely understand if there are students out there not wanting to commit to such a long program, especially if they donít live in the DC area.

    Hopefully I will have the pleasure of meeting some of you in the next few weeks. Best of luck on the WHC essays! I donít know how much more waiting I can handle J

    Despite the fact that the WHC scholarship would be a HUGE relief financially, I'm from Michigan and have never lived in D.C...so it's safe to say I'm a little nervous about signing myself up for such a big time commitment (assuming I even got the scholarship, which is a long shot..haha). I guess we'll just have to see...it plays a big role in where I possibly end up though, since the other programs I've been accepted to have MUCH lower tuition rates and costs of living- but they aren't quite as prestigious as Georgetown. Gahhh so many decisions...

    When are you all planning to go to Georgetown Experience and the Interview. I'm thinking the sooner the better. I wonder what kind of dress attire is appropriate for Georgetown Experience.

    I am doing the March 6th and 7th date. I think they said professional attire, so I was thinking black pants and a dress shirt....

    Yea I was thinking something like that for the Georgetown experience, but a skirt suit for the actual interview. Sounds like they will be watching us at both events. I am thinking since i live right here that I may go to the first dates, and get it out of the way.

    Yes, I agree with you. From previous posts last year, it seems extremely intense. I live in Atlanta, so I will have to make a trip up there when I am done with classes here. I am very excited to meet everyone. Is Georgetown your first choice? I am also curious what everyones' background are. Are most people new grads or coming back to school.

    Hello all,

    I know this has come up a bit already, but is anyone else facing having to decide between GW and Georgetown? I'm having a difficult time, as I'm really drawn to both (granted the scholarship plays a HUGE factor). Just curious... =) Good luck to all those writing the essay!

    dlrosen--I am debating between GW and GU as well. I wish GW had some kind of accepted student day. I also wish they had more financial aid/scholarships.

    Is anyone from Northern Virginia going to the WHC interviews on May 7th?
