    For those of you planning to attend, does anyone want to start thinking about housing or has anyone heard of what neighborhoods are good to look in? I found an other dream-home: 4531 Sansom St # HOUSE, Philadelphia, PA 19139 - Zillow Unfortunately it is ridiculously overpriced. I'm used to paying 900+ for a room in NYC/DC, so this place comes to 700 and sounds kinda reasonable. Compared to other housing in the area, it seems outrageous, though.
    FingersCross'd: are you in the FB group? That's the exact area I want to move to. It has so much character! I'm not sure what I want to do for a living situation yet, but we should definitely talk.

    hopefulnurse, i live in nyc and easily decided my other top choice to be SUNY Stony Brook. if finances weren't an issue though, UPENN is my top choice hands down. unfortunately, i know i need to be sensible and consider tuition costs+COL as well, and Stony Brook is an awesome choice because i get in-state tuition, it's 12 months long, and it's a great program.

    Hey! Yes I'm in the FB group I dont think that specific house is available anymore . It's probably too early to seriously look at housing, but I'm getting a feel for the market and hopefully on visiting day, I can get a feel for the neighborhoods. Are you going to the visiting day?

    Yeah. I figured. I'm not quite sure how I am going to do this. I have a one bedroom apartment right now and I have no idea how I'm going to move all my stuff to Philly before I secure a place. (or sublet and then move in September?) I'm going to do a post to you right now in the facebook group so I can figure out who you are. haha.

    Allnurses won't let me post the link, but type in "Penn ABSN/MSN summer 2013 cohort" and you should be able to find us.

    Hi everyone... I check out of allnurses for a while... but wanted to pop back in to say that I was accepted for the BSN/MSN with PC-AGNP specialty. I've already confirmed and am excited to start the whole moving process. I don't use Facebook, but I hope to connect with my cohorts here or elsewhere -- please message me if you can! I'll also be participating in the chat later tonight.

    Thanks to everyone here for your help & support with the process. Good luck to everyone pursuing their dreams.

    I don't think I'm accepting Penn as it's so expensive but has anyone received their fin aid packages? They are supposed to be sending them out today
