    For those who have completed or were accepted to the Accelerated program: When you submitted your application did you have any classes in progress? I'm wanting to apply however, I will have Nutrition and Genetics in progress when applying. I don't want to waste my time and money, if that makes me less competitive then those who have finished all pre-reqs

    I don't think it matters if you have a few classes in progress. I was just starting Nutrition and Micro in winter quarter when I applied. I was waitlisted at first at OHSU but offered entry in May for the ABSN June start. (I had already decided on UP by then.)

    I had almost all of my prereqs in process when I applied, except for A&P and Statistics, and I got in. I don't think it matters.

    I am applying to the OHSU ABSN program and currently working on my essay. Two of my immediate family members (father and brother) are OHSU alumni (School of Medicine). Is this something I should try to mention in my essay??

    Hello Group,

    I am currently an ABM student at a different university, but I wanted to let you know that I was accepted into the OHSU program for nurse-midwifery two weeks before the program started! So, if you are put on the waitlist, don't despair and try to keep your life really flexible until the last minute!

    anyone heard from admissions about summer program notifications?? I'm getting anxious as I've been accepted to Johns Hopkins but would still love to stay in Oregon. let's get these boards active!

    Have not heard anything yet. I applied to the Accelerated Bachelors to Masters in Nurse Midwifery and I got an interview in which I was told midwifery notifications will be sent next week. Since the Accelerated BSN deadline was a month later, I suspect end of March or April possibly?

    From the admissions office, notifications won't be sent out until mid-April.

    Hey Habitus, I was scrolling through the blog because I'm dying to hear about OHSU and noticed you and I are in a similar situation! I'm currently in Berkeley (and would love to stay on the west coast) and also I got into Johns Hopkins! Are you potentially entering the summer program? How are you handling housing, etc? It's so hard not knowing about OHSU...

    Hey berkeleygirl! so crazy because i went to berkeley for my first bachelors and have lived up here in Portland since 2009. I'd be entering the Fall ABSN program at JHU and to be honest with the lag time of OHSU i'm about 90% sure that's where i'm headed. would you start this summer? i can't even imagine not knowing that close to the start of the term. about housing, i've been looking at apartments to get an idea of price range, distance to school, etc and may just end up driving out there and finding a place on the spot the beginning of august. it's a big move and i have 2 cats! congrats on your acceptance!

    oh and i would be entering the summer program at OHSU!

    That is too funny! Yeah, I am finishing up here at Berkeley and then planning on entering the JH summer program. I didn't know it would be starting at the end of May (I had been told early June back when I applied). So yes, I'm in a bit of a panic! I would really just like to know about OHSU so I can be set either way. From what I've read in past blogs, it seems like they would call you if you got in around late March...

    wow. that's a tight relocation timeframe! I called OHSU admissions and they said mid April but really who knows! if you hear anything more let me know!
