    Hey everyone, congrats on the acceptances! One admissions representative noted that the deadline for the admissions deposit was January 24th, but I won't be hearing back from other programs until atleast early-February! Is anyone else in the same boat? What are your plans in this situation? I've already contacted a JHU representative about an extension, but I haven't heard back!

    According to a new document that I found the new cost of the program for five semesters, including estimates for tuition, room, board, and fees, is about $158,530.

    There is a pdf that describes the full price and giv s the details on all fees on the JHU Nursing website. Very informative. Keep in mind that this is all inclusive including estimates for book expenses and travel expenses, etc.

    I'll post the document where I got this info from at a later time (it only shows an estimate of cost for 3 semesters for 2017-18). I don't have access to a computer right now. Maybe someone has already looked at that pdf and can post the link ahead of me.

    hope the link works: https://nursing.jhu.edu/admissions/f...a/MEN_cost.pdf

    Has anyone created a Facebook group for this fall 2018 entry/class of spring 2020 cohort??

    Hi! i joined the jhu son MSN facebook page. I think one for our cohort would be good to get to know eachother, discuss housing and everything about our program. Should we start one?

    I think we should. We could post current info and can always use the other group for extra info for whoever is interested. It is a good resource as well.

    New here and asking a quick question:

    Anyone else applying by the Jan 1st deadline, rather than Nov. 1st? (for Fall entry)

    Did anyone who was accepted not get a phone call? I never got a voicemail on my account and I'm kind of worried

    I have not received a phone call either. I have been told all accepted students should receive a phone call at some point so I am trying to not worry.

    One question for folks here: is anyone looking to pursue midwifery? I know Johns Hopkins doesn't have a midwifery program (and I did not get into Yale), but I was wondering if anyone has experience or research continuing on with a different program afterwards? I'm also considering Columbia, but their MSN program doesn't really hold a candle to Johns Hopkins. Also, their midwifery program isn't ranked as highly as some others (thinking University of MN, University of Michigan).
    Curious to talk through pros and cons if anyone else is considering! I'm very heavily leaning towards Johns Hopkins, with reapplying to a new program upon graduation.
    Just curious since I'm also considering Columbia and Hopkins-- what makes you say Hopkins MSN program is better? Thanks!

    Rankings (JHU is #2 for graduate nursing, where Columbia is #8) and cohort size (JHU is ~20% smaller) primarily. I also was reading through recent threads on allnurses citing some concerns with feeling like just a number at Columbia due to disappointing communication throughout the MDE year. I also caught wind of a retention rate in the mid eighty percentile, which concerned me. I tried reaching out to a current student at Columbia about my concerns but never heard back.
    Obviously Columbia's direct transfer to a DNP is a big draw, as is their innovative work in maternal health for me. However, I know some folks who have collaborated with JHU nurse faculty and have nothing but rave reviews for the quality education and communication. (It's interesting though, as my own experience is the opposite. JHU has had minimal communication compared to Columbia for me-- I get replies and clarification within 24 hrs from Columbia and often it takes weeks to hear back from JHU. I'm not sure if there is a parallel between the communication of the admissions office and actual program, though.)
    If you have heard different things (either contradictory or totally different considerations) I'd love to hear what your thought process is!
