    hi and congrats! can i ask when you got your acceptance letter, and when you submitted your application? i submitted two weeks ago, and just want to get a feel for how long i'm gonna be sitting on pins and needles waiting for a admission decision ahh! thanks!

    [color=#333333] filled out my online application on the july 17th, transcripts were sent on the 18th so i am assuming they got there by the 23rd or 24th. i received my acceptance package in the mail the 30th.

    Jess.Lebowtiz, I just graduated with a B.S. in Family Studies & Human Development. Living in Tucson until I make the move to Philly, which should be sometime in early January. I've never been to Philadelphia so I'm going in pretty blind here... I have no idea where to live, but would like to live as close to the campus as possible! Preferably with other ACE students too... So exciting to hear that there is another Zona girl accepted! When are you moving/where are you living and when are you going?

    Hello,

    Anybody find it difficult to get someone on the phone? There are a lot of variables and moving parts to my decision to attend before I send a non-refundable $500 deposit. I have important questions I need answered about student loans and the course schedule for the program. I applied to Sallie Mae and it basically said "the program for which you are applying the loans has to begin within 6 months", which is a pain because I need to know now if I can get the funding but the program starts 7/8 months from now. I am also currently accepted to CCP's program which I only have until September 3rd to withdraw from without any academic/financial consequences. I also don't want to forfeit my spot at CCP just to learn I can't get the funding for Drexel. Anyone else having these issues?

    Hi everyone my name's Rob...I just applied to the Spring 2013 cohort last Thursday August 9th, and just checked and all my transcripts have made it as of today.

    I've only completed exactly 9 of the 13 required prerequisites (just finished A&P 1&2 and Nutrition this Summer). I'm taking Micro, Chem, Lifespan, and Medical Ethics in the Fall.

    I'm just wondering if anyone has been accepted conditionally and has not yet finished all their prereqs? I'm so worried they'll sit on my application and I won't hear from them until the end of the year, but it sounds like many of you received answers right back. Was that because you have all the prereqs already completed?

    Any answers I'd appreciate!

    Rob- They received my last transcript last Wednesday (the 8th) and I haven't heard yet. I still have to take Ethics, but I'm going to call tomorrow just to make sure they don't need anything else to make a decision. I'm really hoping to find out soon because if I don't get in, I have another course to take for Jefferson as a pre-req to apply there for the FACT program for May. I don't want to take an extra science course for no reason, I could use that money for nursing school if I don't need to take it. Keep us posted on when you hear something!

    I attend Drexel University as an undergraduate nursing student in the 5 year BSN co-op option and congrats to those in the ACE program it is a vary hard and rigorous program to accomplish. However, as for Drexel overall and its administration you absolutely must stay on top of them WITH EVERYTHING POSSIBLE ... Keep in touch about your records, transcripts, tuition, fees (costs), literally anything because they will try and say otherwise and things will get lost most times. I am just now starting my clinical and it took me 5 times to finally get my clinical information through like immunizations because no one would update my files or anything or respond back!

    Oh man...thanks for the replies....if you all have basically all your prereqs completed then I'm not as confident in getting in.I have mostly As so far but they don't want an essay or recommendation letters or interview or any information about you really so it seems they can only base the acceptance on grades and completion of prereqs.

    I really thought I had a shot....I guess I'll have to wait and see.

    Does anyone know of how many seats are still open for Spring 2013? And why four months after the deadline are there still seats available? Has anyone heard of someone being accepted with 4 more prereqs to go? (mine are Micro, Chem, Lifespan, Ethics...I know I'll get all As, but they don't know that.)

    Good luck to all of us, I really hope to be swapping these stories with you all come April 2013 in person at the program!

    Hi Everyone!!! I just got the great news yesterday that I am accepted for the 2013 Spring Cohort. I just want to put some hope out there for others because when I initially applied I only have 5 of the 13 pre-reqs done. I took 3 more over the summer and I am also doing one now and the rest will be taking in the Fall. The reason it took so long to get a response was because after each of my summer sessions I had to resend transcripts. So for everyone waiting for a response hang in there and don't give up hope. Also is there anyone from South Jersey area? I may be driving up there everyday.

    Also ajacks101 I have to take Chem, Micro, Ethics and nutrition in the fall. Don't give up hope =)

    Hi! Wondering if any of you know about the following?

    If we pay our $500 tuition deposit and enroll with Drexel, can we back out and attend another school later? Drexel is my 2nd choice school, and I'm still waiting on UPitt's (1st choice) admission decision. I want to ensure I am in Drexel's spring class, but if by some miracle, UPitt accepts me, I will probably go there since I'm originally from Pitt. I know that I will lose the $500 if I decide to go to another school, but I'm wondering if I might get penalized any other way?

    Anyone run into this situation?
