- 0May 3, '11 by gourangaQuote from aba1988There's an info session for the ACE program on May 24th at 6pm. There's also a webinar on July 5th.I just found out I was accepted as well. I really don't know anything about the program and their website information is kind of limited. Are there any current students that can share their experience? Thanks!

- 0May 7, '11 by klinden1hey guys,
congrats on getting accepted. I just applied today for the program beginning spring 2012. I know that it is past the deadline but I am hoping I can still get in.. I recently came across the program after the deadline and can't believe how easy drexel's application process is. For all you guys who got in, do you think I still have a chance applying after the deadline? ALso, do you guys mind sharing your stats with me? I'm so nervous!Thank you!!
- 0May 9, '11 by Tillytiffinfrancine470 - the deadlines are listed on the "learn more" page of the ACE site. its on the right hand side under "fast facts" APPLICATION DEADLINES:April 15 for Spring, Oct 15 for Fall.
Klinden1 - I don't know if they consider late applications. But the receptionist in the nursing department is always helpful and candid when I call, I'm sure they can let you know that. as far as my stats, I applied in January 2011 and got notication at the end of April. My GPA from my previous (Business) degree is 3.5 and my GPA on my pre-reqs is 3.8 - I had all A's in the sciences. I still haven't completed Ethics though. No extra-curricular activites, no medical experience. From what I've read, they go mostly by grades. Hope this helps...
- 0May 12, '11 by Tillytiffinjlynnb, I'm also looking to plan a campus visit. They had a slot open for a nursing department visit on 5/23 at 10am for accepted students. I thought that was the soonest session. So I may go then. One of the things I'm most concerned about is finding out the schedule. I wonder how long the days are. is it like 3 days of class and 2 days of clinicals? do we have quarters that have any days off? Can you share any info that you get during your visit?
- 0May 12, '11 by gourangaQuote from TillytiffinI read somewhere that there are two days of classes from about 8am to 5pm and three days of clinicals. I can't remember the source, but I'll post it as soon as I do.jlynnb, I'm also looking to plan a campus visit.

Also, if you click here, you can see the academic calendar for accelerated programs. Where it says "type," uncheck "quarter" and check "accelerated courses."

I will absolutely share any info I get. I know Drexel's Program is divided into 4 quarters (10 weeks each and each quarter is followed by 1 week off) I wish I could go on the 23rd- but I'll be away that week. Please let me know if you find any importmant info as well! I have also been accepted to Marymount's ABSN program (16months), Drexel was my first choice but I can't imagine completing 88 credits in 11 months now...I am going to visit both schools before I make a decision.
