    Congrats on getting accepted! Do you know what your undergraduate GPA was? Also, Can you let me know how many pre-requisites you had left when you applied (if any)? I have a bunch left so I think my admission decision will be delayed until after this semester and they get some more grades from me. Thanks!

    Congratulations LINDSAY!!! i know no longer playing the waiting game is a relief. Question..did you get an email stating that your admission decision was made, or did you just happen to check and saw that you were accepted?

    I applied July 25th, and all my Application Materials were in by August 6th I believe. I hope i hear back soon. THis is so nerve-wrecking. Also considering the fact is Drexel is the ONLY place i applied to.

    jrb1045: My undergraduate GPA was a 3.2. However, I have a much higher GPA in my pre-reqs. I am currently finishing my last pre-requisite now, otherwise I have the rest of them finished. I believe you need to have at least 9 of them completed to recieve a decision.

    MsDooyah: No longer playing the waiting game is certainly a relief, but now I have all the other forms of anxiety that accompany an acceptance letter! I checked Discover Drexel on my own, and saw that I was accepted. About two days later I recieved an email that a decision had been made regarding my application, and to visit Discover Drexel. Yesterday I recieved the actual paper letter in the mail.

    Drexel was my first choice, so I will be putting down my deposit by next week. Good luck to everyone!

I received and e-mail yesterday around 4:50 pm stating "congratulations on your provisional acceptance..."!! I am super excited. Also applied to UPenn's BSN 2013 program, but am not too worried about getting rejected i'll live lol. So I know you guys may have questions so here goes. I am so excited to be apart of this journey with you guys.

    Did Undergrad at Saint Joes 12': BS in Healthcare Administration
    Undergrad GPA 3.2
    Pre Reqs Left : Chem and Ethics which will be taken next semester
    Not too sure what my Pre-req gpa is because the semester has not eneded yet.

    Just found out I got accepted also! I found out at around 12pm. I didn't receive an email though, I just checked the portal. Some of my stats:

    I'm currently finishing up my B.S. in General Science (I graduate in May, so this is a provisional acceptance)
    My current cumulative GPA is a 3.070, however, the I graduated with my associates degree in Medical Assisting with a 3.8 so that might have helped.

    I currently work in the lab at a hospital, and have interned over 200 hours in doctor's offices for my MA degree.

    Anyway, I'm still debating on Drexel because of the cost and I would definitely need to work somehow during, even if its just enough to pay my car note or for food/etc. I have also applied to UPenn, LaSalle, and am thinking about applying to Jefferson's APW program, so I'm waiting for those

    Good luck everyone!

    When did you apply? That might be a factor.

    I applied in mid-late August

    i had a 3.04 overall but around a 3.6 in my last 60 credits. im not sure what my prereq gpa is from drexel, but estimating it at about a 3.3-3.4 still have some left to take. i had a really rough sophomore year grade-wise so happy drexel looks at the last 60 credits

    Has anyone received their acceptance packet yet? When is the enrollment deadline due?
  11. by   MsDooyah
    Hey Ashley, i applied in July and my application was complete between August 6-12th. no later than that.

    i didn't include anything else in my application besides what they asked for.

    But I have worked at an Assisted Living Home as a CNA for 4 years, before i graduated and got the job i have now. Maybe i should have included a resume. Idk..

    I called Evan last week and he said a decision should be made this week but i still haven't heard anything yet.

    Im nervous, anxious. I feel like a stalker as much as i go on the portal.

    I just realized this thread was posted in the "General Nursing Student" section. Is there any way we can move it to the PA nursing programs section of the site? I think maybe we'd come across more Drexel ACE people.

    I applied mid october and haven't heard back yet. My GPA at my old school wasn't too good (2.9 cumulative), but I turned things around my junior year and managed a 3.4 (just for the last two semesters). I then transferred schools, currently have a 3.5 in my 5th year and I also do research for the university.

    I'm starting to get really nervous. Drexel is my first choice and I've already received a rejection letter from Villa Nova. I have an interview with the school I currently go to, hopefully the "Alma Mater" factor will increase my chances of getting in.

    I want this!
