Summer Entry 2013 Accelerated BSN/MSN Johns Hopkins - page 19

Hi everyone, How many of you have applied for the 2013 Accelerated BSN/MSN program at JHU SON? I applied early decision and completed my phone interview on the 26th. They said they will start... Read More

    The office opens at 8:30. It would make more sense that calls would start after office staff have settled in, haha. Also, the applicant population on this website is a small minority of the total pool, so it is very feasible that they are making calls and we wouldn't know it yet.

    I'm going to have a heart attack whenever my phone does anything today...

    Usually a ton of people come out of the wood works when decisions are made, as I've noticed from Duke interview invites and Penn decisions. If they had to call a few hundred people, I'd think that they would start early, but you may be right!

    10:20pm here in Shanghai! I'm coffee'd up and settling in for a long night.

    I hope you are right though! I want a phone call desperately!

    Geez, a few hundred? Are we talking about both fall and summer start dates to include BSN and MSN folks?

    I'm Fall ABSN and they told me March 1. Can't speak for the other groups for sure but it sounds like this is big the day for everyone!

    Of course that being said, another competitive school which shall remain nameless told me 7 weeks ago that I would hear in 2-3 weeks, never know!

    Yes, fall and summer should hear today and each class consists of around 150 students, but a good amount already know due to being early decision so I'm thinking about 200 phone calls would need to be made today, assuming that around 100 spots (50 summer, 50 fall) are already allocated to early decision students... that's just a guesstimate though so who really knows

    I heard from my admissions counselor that we'd be hearing but the END of the first week of March, she said the admissions committee needed more time.

    I really hope we hear today, but let's not beat ourselves up if we don't (unless other people are hearing back...)

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Keob, it seems like a lot of us have been told different things. Thanks for the clarification! After talking to many different people, I'm not counting on a phone call. It seems letters only are most likely at this point. I will be very happy if I get a phone call but I will not count on it. I appreciate it!

    Good luck hopefulnurse! We are going to know soon enough. Are you applying to other schools? Have you heard back from them? For me, I only applied to JHU, OHSU, and Pacific Lutheran University (I am applying based on places my fiance is likely to get a post-doc or teaching position) and this is my first decision to be announced. It is also super stressful because I was early decision at JHU, then they moved me into regular decision because they liked my application, but wanted to "reconnect" after I had taken a few more pre-reqs...I have two more down and As in both, so I'm crossing my fingers!

    Hey, you didn't get denied, so that's a good thing! I applied to Penn (waitlisted), Marquette (accepted), Duke (interviewed last week), and NYU. First choice is a tie between Duke and Hopkins! Lets hope we hear great news soon! Good luck to you as well!
