I just wanted to start a thread for the Spring 2011 applicants for the ABSN program. I don't know if this is the first time the Gtown is using the nursingCAS or not, but I wanted to hear about everyone else's experience with it.... Read More

    I've got a BA & MBA. The BA was almost 20 yrs ago, gpa 3.4ish in a completely unrelated field (architecture!). More recently, I've gotten A's in all science & math pre-reqs; nearly all A's on other pre-reqs. I've been volunteering in a hospital for a while, and had some significant (although totally unrelated) sr. management experience.

    Aloha from Hawai'i All!

    I received an acceptance letter from Georgetown as well!!!

    Does anyone know when we're supposed to hear about the WHC scholarship?

    I also got accepted to Georgetown!!

    I would be moving out from Southern California. I thought I was going to be the one that moved the furthest, but Malika has me bet! Anyone else from the west coast?

    Congrats to everyone who got in!!

    I'm coming from Arizona. Not quite as cool as Hawaii and So Cal, but I still have the laid back sunshine charm despite all our crazy laws. According to the schedule, we should hear about the scholarships by mid-October, so I would say within the next week or so. I am crossing my fingers for the scholarship. I love the DC area and am super excited about prospect of spending four years there. Congratulations to everyone who got in!

    I'm coming from Arizona. Not quite as cool as Hawai'i or So Cal, but we have our own southwestern sunshine. Congrats to everyone who got in. I can't wait to meet everyone.

    I haven't heard anything yet!! Do you think their releasing decisions in batches? or maybe only the people who were accepted were notified on Friday? :-(

    Congrats to all who were admitted for Spring 2011!

    I'm a metro DC native, and now in my 3rd semester of the SDBSN program (non-WHC). If anyone has questions about living in/around DC, feel free to drop me a line or post a ? on my cohort's FB page: Georgetown University Spring 2010 ABSN.

    Thank you so much for being so open and helpful. I just have a couple of questions. Where do most ABSN students live? Do they live around Georgetown or in different parts of town? Also, is there a way that you can buy sets of nursing books from previous students? Finally, what is the Patho professor like from what you've heard?
