    I would rather get a Master's degree instead of another Bachelor's so I never considered Loyola that much.

    That's exactly how I feel. I am not going to pay so much just go get a BSN where I already have an acceptance to a school that is offering me a masters with the same tuition

    So a resume is one page right?

    Yeah for our purposes, usually one page. Mine was one page.

    I am planning to apply to LUC for January 2014, if I don't get in somewhere else first! Their application for spring is only released in September and due in November, so I'm crossing my fingers that I'll know where I'm going before that...

    @Sara: Of course you will. It will be at UIC with me!

    And everyone else on here!

    I submitted a CV (2 pages) although on second thought I suppose I could have left my volunteer experience off since we had to input them into the boxes.

    Hey guys,
    On the website it states, "All materials including supplemental application, application fee, GRE scores, official transcripts, and electronic letters of recommendation must be received by the application deadline."

    Official transcripts? We need to send those? I thought we submitted the unofficial online and the official will be sent after acceptance.

    Yes! I posted earlier about how I thought that was rather redundant to order official transcripts (my school does not offer electronic official transcripts), wait for them to come, then upload them... only to have to re-submit them again if we are admitted.

    Here's the email that I received:
    "Yes, that would be the best way to do it. Unfortunately University policy will not allow us to accept official transcripts until a decision has been made.
    I recommend checking with each schools registrars office, most schools send transcrtps through e-mail and it's usually free."

    So if you haven't ordered them, do so!

    Ugh.... Okay I guess I am going to have to call them and tell them to ignore the transcripts that I uploaded. Thanks for clearing this out, sitten.

    I'm manually going to collect my transcript and scan them this weekend. There's not much time left for ordering the transcript.

    Okay now I am reading this, "You may need to obtain and scan a copy of an official transcript if the institution does not provide an acceptable unofficial version."

    What is an acceptable unofficial version of a transcript??
    Yeah I am going to call them tomorrow to ask....will keep you all updated.

    They should just void them out. I uploaded my unofficial transcripts three times, and had them voided three times, before I figured out what I was doing wrong.
