Anyone applying to UAB MSN program? - Page 3Register Today!
- Nov 4, '10 by Jlawson4BSNGood luck to you and everyone!!
- Nov 4, '10 by flgirl75I just can't believe we haven't heard anything, yet. I know we will soon be laughing (or crying) about this whole ideal, but I just wish it was over already. Surely they realize we are suffering in the uncertainty of not knowing. They must have considered the fact that those who will be accepted must get on with registering for next semester and those who are not must go on with their lives and initiate "Plan B" (or in my case "Plan C").
I am checking this blog 3-4 times daily just to see if one of you has received a letter, yet. I will definately post when I receive mine, until then...the anxiety continues.
- Nov 5, '10 by flgirl75Letters have definately been mailed. I received my REJECTION letter today. I still wish you guys the best of luck with this process.
- Nov 5, '10 by Sillysally514Didn't get in either. Didn't realize how devastated I would be. This sucks. Going to try for Fall 2011, but don't want to wait that long. Going to start looking into other schools. Any suggestions? Good luck to the rest of you!
- Nov 5, '10 by GLG78I'm sorry you guys got bad news...it makes me kind of scared because I had similar grades/MAT scores as you two had.
To Sillysally: Where do you live? I applied to four schools and have only heard back from one. The one I've heard back from and got accepted into was Georgia College and State University. If you live close to Macon, classes only meet once per week. It's my last choice because I live about one and a half hours away and don't want to drive that much.
- Nov 6, '10 by Sillysally514GLG78, thanks for the info. I am in Chattanooga and will look into it. Macon, I think, is about 3 hours. Do the classes meet on weekends? That would be doable for me.
- Nov 6, '10 by GLG78sillysally: No, the classes meet during the week and unfortunately, if you are taking more than one class, they may meet on different days of the week. You could also try Georgia State University in Atlanta. What is that, about a 2 hour drive? They have a "web-facilitated" program that meets on campus once a month. I applied there as well but have not heard back yet.
- Nov 6, '10 by lkwashingtonI don't mean to butt in, but how hard is it really to get in this program. What do you need to get in? I am just shock as you are. What is going on with this program? How good is this program? I can't believe not one of you got in. Don't give up!!!
- Nov 6, '10 by GLG78I still haven't gotten a letter yet! I'm very, very anxious...
- Nov 6, '10 by AnnaiyaI'm sorry to the people who didn't get in. I hope you can find another path that works out for you. I keep hearing of people applying to grad school and not being accepted. The economy and the 2015 DNP recommendation are definitely changing how many people are applying. Of course different specialties might have less competition, for example, I've heard an education track has less competition. I don't know how hard it is to go back after getting an education masters to get an NP degree, but that could be something to consider. I know when there is a lot of competition GPA is going to make a big difference. I had a 3.9 GPA for my BSN and I have a graduate degree in another field.
I am still just in my first semester, but so far I have been very impressed with the program. The classes are well organized, the assignments are reasonable and I feel like I'm learning a ton. I know some of the other schools that are easier to get into are not as well run as UAB seems to be.
