    Hello everyone! I've applied to the accelerated BSN-MSN program, so I too am waiting to hear on a BSN decision (as well as an MSN decision!). I'm so nervous! They haven't officially decided yet but word on the street is that it'll be not next week, but the week after. AHHH! Good luck everyone, let's keep each other updated of any new news!

    Hello everyone!

    I am also an ABSN only applicant and I was wondering if any of you received an interview? We are getting close to the final decisions and I have not yet received an interview. I hope that does not mean bad news.

    I keep checking my inbox for any news!

    Good luck to everyone!

    revesreves, I don't think it necessarily means anything discouraging if absn only applicants don't receive interviews because I remember reading on one of these threads that there have been absn applicants who werent interviewed but were accepted. we'll receive decisions soon enough, good luck to us all!

    Hi chinyere130,

    I am hoping for that date too! I was reading past threads and applicants had either heard during the first week or second week of February. I hope they send out e-mails soon!

    I think that they will tell us soon when we should expect to hear back. I had been told that it would be next week or the week after

    revesreves, i love everything about upenn so it is indeed my first choice i know it is a very very expensive program to attend however (tuition has gone up by $40k over the past two years alone! ) and am crossing my fingers and toes in hopes that they offer a good financial aid package if i'm lucky enough to be accepted ...tuition alone is $106k !

    as a random sidenote, i just realized how fun it is playing with these emoticons haha

    I know! The financial package is one of the number one reasons I want to go to UPENN. I am also very attracted to their program since they have lots of health initiatives and top clinical opportunities. Not to mention the fact that they're one of the top nursing programs in the country. I am really worried about the tuition for all of the nursing programs I applied to, but at least UPENN would be well worth it! Did you apply to any other schools? I've been accepted to my back up schools (Samuel Merritt/MGIHIP) and waiting to hear back from OHSU, UMass Boston. Going to apply for NYU soon too!

    Being that the program itself is so expensive, I worry that even with a good financial aid package, I may still end up paying a lot (their penn grant maxes at 40k). I know it's a loan-heavy program but I pray they will continue to give great financial aid packages like they do every year. aside from upenn, I also applied to columbia's ETP, SUNY downstate and SUNY stony brook. I found out I was accepted into SUNY stony brook earlier this month and am thrilled about my first acceptance

    I was also thinking about applying to NYU and UMDNJ in case I didnt receive good news but I'm so glad Stony Brook sent out their decisions so early because it saved me time and money haha.
