    ABSN to MS students are in our same cohorts (some will start in Summer, others in Fall, like us) and nothing really changes in their program until they are finished with the BSN portion, then they just head straight into a 2 year MS program for either Psych NP or CNM (the only 2 direct entry MS programs at OHSU, all others require that you have work experience before applying).

    And no, being asked for an interview is part of the application process for ABSN to MS students- so that is not an indication for them to as if they have been formally accepted to the ABSN program.

    I have also spoken with students that ABSN to MS students sometimes change their mind during the ABSN training, in which case other students who have developed an interest in the Psych NP or CNM fields coulld ask to be considered for those spots. It doesn't happen a lot, but can occur.

    I got an envelope from OHSU today and was so thrilled- then I just discovered that FA just needs more info :P

    Welcome! It is hard to keep everything straight at this time of the year-- all of my applications are in, and I just have the 3 yr OHSU program's proctored essay that I am doing this week to finish up.

    Does anyone know when scholarship recipients are chosen? Will it be on the acceptance letters?

    I think I read on last year's thread that they sent out the financial aid packet with the acceptance letter, so maybe it will be with the financial aid packet??
    More than a month left :O I hope they're on time with sending the letters out

    Thought that I would share this with everyone:

    Hello Kelly,

    Thank you for your email. Yes, we will notify accepted candidates via phone and email in addition to the regular admissions packet. At this time, applications are in review. I hope this information is helpful and best of luck!

    Looking at last year's board on here- it seems most people received their acceptances on March 29th- so maybe they will be sent out before April 1st again this year (fingers crossed).

    mamakac- it seems unlikely that they would call AND email after sending out letters, is this what they have done in previous years or is it something new this year?

    That was a direct copy and paste from an e-mail that I recieved yesterday. If you look at last years boards, a lot of people did recieve calls in addition to application packets in the mail.

    This year they are adding in e-mail notification in order to allow other schools to know sooner if someone needs to withdraw their application.

    I had my skype interview 3 weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure they said that notifications could be sent at any time starting, well, now. (Then again, they reviewed the timeline at the end of the interview and I think I was too distracted to pay very close attention.) I hope we find out before the end of March...! I can't handle waiting that much longer, especially since other schools' deadlines pass before then...
