Penn accelerated BSN 2012 - page 3

Hi, Has anyone heard when Penn is sending out the decisions for the Second degree BSN program? Also when did you have a phone or in-person interview? I haven't heard back from them and I had a phone interview in early December.... Read More

    Accepted! I've also been accepted at JHU and UR, but this is definitely my top choice. I hope to talk to others that will be joining me.

    @ccb1 - yeah, that is really strange. Congrats on JHU and UW though! Both of them are really good.

    I was wait listed too so I still have some hope, though who knows what the chances of actually making it in from the list are... Congrats to those who made it in!

    ccb1: I am surprised you didn't get in either! At least you have UW and JHU to choose from! You are lucky that you could apply to so many great schools. I had to stick to around where I live. There are definitely great schools around here, but that would have been awesome to apply to those two! Good luck : )

    @amyf/sd340 - I'm still not sure if i will choose UW or JHU, it comes down to the decision of whether i want to move or not (i currently live in seattle). I honestly thought i had a better chance of getting into Penn when compared to UW or JHU. UW really emphasized previous health care experience which I dont have much of, and JHU said they looked more closely at the applicant's entire academic record whereas Penn said they considered the most recent academics. My pre-req gpa was 4.0, but my undergrad gpa ('01 grad) was 3.1. I also thought i wrote stronger essays for Penn.

    I'm not sure why i had my heart set on Penn, but it was my first choice. I think the programs are very comparable, and from what I have heard from working RN's where you get your degree doesn't amount to a hill of beans in the long run. I'm not really that upset, just curious as to why i would be accepted at some schools and not another. Seattle is an amazing city, but i've lived here for a while and want a change of pace. I have always like Philly so i thought i would go there, but i'm sure Baltimore has a lot to offer as well.

    Baltimore is pretty cool actually. It has its charm. I got into JHU as well. Wait-listed for Penn, which was actually somewhat of a pleasant surprise as I heard almost nothing from them since I applied (no interview or anything.) And still waiting to hear from Duke.

    I am in exactly the same boat as you are!

    Curious why I got wait-listed @ Penn, got into JHU, and waiting to hear from Duke.

    I think everything considered, JHU it is for me, at least for now...

    Almost the same boat here....didn't apply to JHU. Anyone else feel like Penn just waitlisted everyone they didn't accept?

    For those of you that were accepted, are any of you in the combined BSN/MSN program? I got accepted into nurse anesthesia, definitely my top choice, but the cost of attending is really scary...

    good luck to everyone with all of their applications!!

    Yeah, it definitely feels like there are a lot on the waitlist! I am sure not many make it off.
