    Well, I hear back from programs like Columbia and UPenn in early-February, and my interview for Yale is days after the admissions deposit deadline, so I would include that as well. I'm honestly feeling conflicted, because as great as a school JHU is, I'm not sure if I would want to accept their offer without examining the entirety of my admissions/financial aid situation.
    Hi, Johns Hopkins will let you delay your acceptance by a few days or weeks I believe. I am also waiting to hear back from UPenn before I officially accept. Can I ask you what your thoughts are when comparing JHU to Penn's Program?

    They said they will allow an extension but you have to request a few days before the deadline(if you are still waiting for other schools decisions) They aren't accepting requests for extensions as of now.

    Have you received an acceptance package by mail outlining financial aid and acceptance deadline etc? I have yet to receive anything...wondering if I should call. Thanks!

    I missed the call from admissions today, but the voicemail said the admissions packets were sent out last week Thursday/Friday and should be expected hopefully by the end of this week at the latest. Also, Jan. 24th is the deadline for the deposit to hold your seat in the program.

    I haven't received anything yet either in the mail. But they called me today. I called them last week too and admissions picked up right away.

    I just received my packet in the mail today. Unfortunately it was sent to my parents house, so now I have to wait for it to be forwarded to me.

    Received a packet but no phone call. Going to meet with someone this week at JHU.

    I reached out via email, and heard back yesterday. It sounds like they only had 2 people working over the holidays, so they're just getting back into the swing of things. I spoke with Laura, who went out of her way to get a hold of me on Google Hangouts since I'm abroad. She also scanned and emailed my packet since I won't be getting it directly. I also learned I got a scholarship! JHU is looking more and more like "the one" for me

    Sure! So I'm applying to the FNP specialty at UPenn, and I would be applying to JHU's DNP program for the FNP specialty after this program (just for context). From what I understand, the program at UPenn is 3 years and will grant you your BSN/MSN, whereas the Entry MSN and the separate DNP program at JHU will grant you your MSN/DNP in 4 years. Personally, I am partial to earning my DNP over my MSN. As someone who wishes to become an NP in the future, you have to recognize that the playing field is changing. More and more nursing programs are switching from BSN+MSN to MSN+DNP, which means that more NPs will leave school with their DNPs. It would be a disservice to yourself to stop at the MSN when you know that a majority of your colleagues will have a DNP in 10-ish years. This would also place your job security in somewhat of a limbo, as it may be difficult for you to compete with doctorally-prepared students. I'm also not the biggest fan of going back to school later in life (personally), and I feel like I would have to do that if I left school with just an MSN. That's just my take on it. And anyone, please feel free to comment or add anything if you feel like I missed something, I'm totally open to having a civilized conversation about the pros and cons of these programs! We're all in this together!

    Are you sure upenn doesn't give you a DNP? We are both in the same boat I am also going for FNP and I am not interested in stoping and then going to school later on

    I was not aware that JHU will do the MSN/DNP in 4 years. My understanding is that the MSN is 21 months then you work and can get the DNP in 3 years. Did you find information on their website that indicated otherwise? I also know Penn is preparing an accelerated DNP which would allow you to finish in as little as a year maybe, but I'm also not sure the details of that. Let me know what you think!
