    I agree with your point on the nashville live music factor!

    Boston definitely has a city feel! There are so many incredible restaurants, bars, historical sites, hospitals (a whole area called Longwood dedicated to the major hospitals), colleges, etc, and has a lot of cultural diversity! There are so many people who live in the city from all walks of life, and I am never without places to go and people to go with! You can drive to the beach in roughly 45 mins and jump out to the revolutionary war historical areas within 20 mins. it's really an incredible city and I love it here!

    Honestly, I think Nashville will have to wow me for me to decide I want Vandy. Boston is just so awesome!

    Ah awesome! Where do you go now? I'm at Loyola.

    I also applied to Vanderbilt but haven't heard anything. I'm still waiting to hear from Northeastern, Rush (my interview is on Wednesday), and will still probably apply to UIC even though we won't find out about that until May. In addition to my acceptances at Marquette and BC, I've heard no from MGH Institute and am on the waitlist for U of Rochester, but I'm really not a fan of their program anymore anyway.

    If you're seriously considering BC you should add me on facebook so we can talk more! find me with my email - kbell6@luc.edu.

    If anyone else is considering BC please add or message me on facebook too as I'd love to talk about pros/cons, living situations, etc.

    kateb4, I'm curious, why aren't you a fan of the University of Rochester's program? I'm wondering because I applied for admission into their fall 2013 program.

    I would have picked BC over MGH anyway so I'm fine with only getting into BC.

    My rationale on U of Rochester could be a little biased since they waitlisted me, but after the phone interview I had in the fall I would have been a little hesitant on accepting admission anyway. I didn't like how you had to interview twice, one with the bachelor's program and once with the master's. That was the only program that did it this way (that I applied to at least) and I found it to be a little odd that they would do it this way. I also didn't like that it was a 3 year program. If other programs can fit pre-licensure and the entire master's portion into 5 semesters, why wouldn't they have an accelerated way to do years 2-3 quicker? I'm not saying it's a bad program by any means, I just have found better programs that I think I would be happier pursuing instead. Hope that makes sense.

    hi616 -

    When I did my Vanderbilt campus tour, they told me that they require their students to have cars, because clinicals can be up to 2 hours (3 hours for NMW) away and are not always accesible by public transportation. I think that's only during the specialty year and the pre-specialty clinicals are closer, but I'm not sure about that - but it's something to keep in mind for planning for Vandy! I haven't seen any "official" notice about that, and I've even looked through the handbooks they have posted on their website, but I do know she said it was a requirement.

    Did you call Vandy's admission office or someone in the specialty you applied for office for an answer on your acceptance?

    Keats & hi616- I will reply to your PMs soon!

    I applied to the pre-specialty PMHNP program. Since I never received the financial aid packet, I emailed S.C. asking if she had the correct address and if they sent out a letter for my admission decision. They told me my application was still under faculty review. I applied before the December 1st deadline, and I also received the email that everyone got about their application still being under faculty review. Hopefully the committee meets soon!

    Yeah I suggest calling the admissions department and asking point blank - that's what worked for me!

    Good luck!
