So many of the threads regarding direct-entry programs featured mainly east coast schools, there have to be a few folks out there like me who've applied to the UCLA MECN program for the Fall 2007 term. Just wanted to say hello and let's have fun waiting four months for our notifications!
Also, If you're out there, did any of you take the GRE although it wasn't required?

I don't know much about MSM's BSN program, other than the cost is quite high for a BSN only (I think 37K?) I didn't apply to any BSN programs because my thinking was such that I've completed a non-nursing bachelor's already and if I can take a 2-yr masters program that will prep me for licensure, why not?
In terms of why UCLA...? I did my undergrad there, so I already love and am familiar with the school, the cost/resident tuition is a bargain compared to Columbia/Yale/JHU/BC, etc. (27K approximate total tuition) and I feel that the Los Angeles area facilities that UCLA partners with for the clinical portion of the program are superb.
I can only speak for myself regarding why I chose to apply there, but I'm sure some others will come along and give you their take on it as well.
