UPenn Second Degree BSN 2013 - page 3

I am applying to the Second degree nursing program at UPenn. I've decided not to go for the direct entry BSN/MSN program since I am not at ALL ready for the GRE (if they decide that I absolutely HAVE... Read More

    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.
    Congrats on your first acceptance! When does SUNY start? I have to send in deposits next week, so I was hoping UPenn would send decisions next Monday. But still no word! I also have the same problem, these app fees are so expensive, but I was scared I wouldn't get in anywhere.

    Thanks for the Penn grant info. I had no idea it was limited to 40K. I have been trying to apply to scholarships, but it's been rare to find ones that I am eligible for. Either they want someone who is already enrolled in a program, or working on their first Bachelors.

    I am waiting for the Nurse Corps 2013 applications to open. Other than that, I will probably end up taking out more loans. But I say it's an investment! When we become nurses we can securely pay them off.

    the SUNY stony brook program starts early July...this waiting for upenn is making me so anxious! applicants from the past two years have heard of the decisions date by now, I bet they have a lot more applicants this year eek :O

    Yes it does! But all applicants are considered together for the same accelerated BSN class.

    chinyere, i love upenn but it'll really have to depend on the financial aid package i receive. the ideal side of me wants to say "YES I'M DEFINITELY GOING!" but the realistic & practical side knows i need to factor $$$ into the equation. what about you?

    That's exactly how I feel! I really want to go so badly but it all depends on the financial aid situation

    agreed! I'm thinking, in my luckiest situation, even if upenn gives max penn grant + forgivable Perkins loan + other misc grants and/or scholarships, I'll most likely still have to pay at least ~55k (including tuition and only barest necessities for living costs). yikes!!

    Hi everyone! I just found this thread, as I have also been accepted to Upenn. Does anyone know when the financial aid packages are being sent out? I turned in all my info by the Dec 15th deadline, so I'm hoping I will hear back soon. I have already put down a deposit on a school (to hold my spot), but still waiting to hear back from 3 schools and their financial aid packages. I can't fully accept an offer until I know what I will be paying.
