    Hi everyone!

    Just wanted to send a quick message that I found out I got in on Thursday!!! I'm a senior at Ohio State studying Human Nutrition, so I am still deciding between a few other programs in Ohio. I was not expecting to get in because some of my science classes were not A's, but I'm very excited!!!!! I would love to try something new and move to Philadelphia!

    Hey all, I just logged onto discover Drexel and saw my acceptance status! I'm still waiting to hear back from WCU, but man am I glad to have the fear of rejection out of the way. Drexel is my top choice, so I will probably see all you ACE students in the fall.

    Found out today I got into Drexel's Fall 2013 ACE Program. Submitted my application mid-September and had a 3.3 undergrad gap and a 3.8 for the last 60 credits. Most pre-reqs were already done. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a BS in Kinesiology and worked as an athletic trainer for a bit. Can't wait to meet everyone in the program!

    Hi! I applied for Spring 2013 around September. I got my acceptance sometime in November. I had to defer for Fall 2013 because of the Ethics class that I still have to take. Also, I just felt a bit rushed and there are so many other requirements (immunizations, background checks, etc.) that need to be met some months before the program actually starts. I am extremely excited about the program. I can't wait to meet everyone in the fall. Good luck to those still waiting on decisions. Also, there are Facebook groups for the Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 cohorts. You can find a lot of helpful info on the pages as well as communicate with other students. I'm currently living in Baltimore, MD. If anyone is in MD and whats connect or whatever, feel free to hit me up. Okay, I'm done!

    Hi, I also applied to the fall 2013 ACE program...app. was complete mid Sept.....still waiting to hear. My main concern is not being able to find a job when we get out. I know several people that just can't find work. Does anyone know what Drexel's employment rate after graduation is? Also, I have 2 kids, ages 9 and 18mos. I am concerned w/the intensity of the program. If I get accepted, I may defer to spring '14. Not sure...just hoping I get in at this point.

    Me either. I contacted one of the advisor last week and was told that my application is in the queue to go to the committee this week. So hopefully we will hear from them in the next couple weeks.

    Hi cristyac,

    Do you remember when you submitted your application?

    I spoke to Evan earlier in the week....he told me end of Dec/early Jan. I was really hoping to know before the holidays.

    I am not sure if reading all the posts from former ACE applicants is helpful or harmful. I am also applying to UMDNJ....but don't know if I will have the same chance of getting a job.

    Hey guys! I e-mailed Evan a week ago and he sent me an e-mail back to me this afternoon saying that my application was in the queue to be reviewed next week. A few hours later, I checked Discover Drexel (just because I've made a habit of it) and found out that I was accepted!! I posted my stats earlier, but for those who didn't see it, I have a 3.39 undergrad GPA and a 3.6 in my last 60 credits. Good luck everyone!!

    The general consensus on this forum is that it doesn't matter where you go for nursing school, your degree is what matters (BSN is becomming the preferred degree for employment). It seems that the opinion here is that employers only see the endpoint, which is RN BSN and that's all that matters to them.

    However, on the Drexel ACE general facebook group, I have seen that Drexel nursing students are well regarded (in the area atleast) and some tend to get jobs fairly quickly after graduation.
