Hi AllNurses community! I have been searching for a thread for the UPMC Mercy Hospital Class of 2015, but alas; no such luck. Therefore, I created one! I was accepted to start in August 2013 and was looking for others who... Read More

    Hey guys! I was checking out some threads and this one caught my eye. I am also applying for Fall '13 start. I just haven't really decided which school I want to be my first choice. Shadyside or Mercy. Why did you guys choose one over the other? Noeladd- I also took the test last Friday at Shadyside, what did you think?

    Rae, if u didn't do we'll...don't sweat it. Just take it again in 60 days! Lol.

    I had a first choice dilemma as well. Shadyside is DEFINITELY closer for me, but I felt a sense of coldness there. Mercy just felt like a more supportive environment. Idk...call me crazy but I tend to follow my intuition lol.

    Well its been two weeks and nothing so I called St Margaret today and now they aren't reviewing my or supposedly any applications until March 1st.. sounds fishy to me! Espically when I was told mine was up for review just a few days after I sent it in. I'm suprised you say that naturalgirl I got ahold of ****** at Shadyside and she was very helpful.. I may have just called on a good day! St Margaret is my first choice but now I'm not so sure I have a feeling that something is off. Shadyside said I'd hear something in two weeks so we'll see how that holds up! This waiting game is awful..

    Mercy told me the apps were reviewed when they received them and I should hear something back in 7-10 days. Well...today is day 9! SERIOUSLY?? And I hand delivered my app! Lol...I'm so anxious though. If my letter isn't in the mail today, I'm gonna call to check on the status. About St.Mags....I heard their program was changing to be more like the other upmc nursing schools. Maybe that's the cause for delay? Idk...just trying to give them the benefit of the doubt lol.

    I also applied to mercy, but I have not heard anything back yet. i applied to Carlow University around the same time and received an email today saying that I was accepted.

    @vebb. If you don't mind me asking, why st. Margaret's? I know there program is shorter but from my understanding they only teach the nursing portions there. In that case, would going to shadyside/mercy mean you would have to take those all over again? Or are they transferable since they are college courses.

    MS30 their program isn't shorter anymore its all changed very similar now to Shadyside they haven't updated anything yet but my college courses should transfer anywhere.. I have everything but AP 1&2 and Micro. St Margaret is closest for me and that is an hour drive my second choice would be Shadyside which is about 1hr 15mins.. Ughhh
