    I have been looking here and there. I know someone in Rochester so she said shed help me when I "fingers crossed" get accepted. I have all my grades in already. SO I hope they give me a ring soon. what class are you taking right now?
    That's great-having connections defo is a good thing to have!

    I'm wrapping up from a ridiculous semester. Taking 20 credits- bio, micro, orgo, nutrition, and A&P. If anything else, this hectic semester has prepped me for the potential rigor we'd be facing at any accelerated program!

    Based on last fall's cohort, people started to get calls around the first week of June... and those who had been wait-listed got calls all the way into August. I sincerely hope this isn't the case this time around!

    Hey nermface - sorry for the delay. Yep submitted everything. Haven't heard back yet. Are you already in the program or completed it? Do you know how big the cohort class size is?

    Nope, still waiting to hear back from them. Mid-May is the absolute earliest they'd call us...but it looks like many from the previous fall got a call during the first week of June!

    As far as I know, they try to admit 60, but I heard they're shooting for around 64 this cohort.
    You probably won't hear back until the week they close applications for the winter cohort. Good luck!

    I'm taking my prereqs at a community college in Delaware. It's been so tough, I can almost taste the freedom! I'm also working nearly 20 hours a week, but mostly throughout the weekend... I need a break!

    Wow good to know there are a bunch of others out there chewing their nails off over this wait like I am!!! I was stoked to get called for an interview in March, which went swimmingly - really liked my interviewer - but now I'm just sweating about getting in!! So to add my 2c to the discussion about interviews, I was specifically told that NOT everyone gets called for an interview, so take that as you will. I was also told to expect a letter in early June, and she said that all the letters (+ and -) go out at once. So that should answer whoever's question about whether they would get a letter either way. Sorry, can't remember who asked that lol. I only applied to UofR's ABPNN, I have no interest to spend another 4 or even 2 years in school after getting both a BS (Biology) and my Veterinary Technician's license, so all my eggs are definitely in one basket! I am a resident of Rochester, and work as a Vet Tech here in the city. For those of you traveling from far away, ROC is a GREAT city to live in - full of arts and entertainment and lovely greenspace, with the country just a skip outside the city limits Question: did anyone else feel like their interviewer was trying to sell them the program? Like they were trying to convince you to go there? And did they take a lot of notes? Mine did, which was good I think but also a little wierd. Of course I HATE HATE talking about myself so I get self conscious when people start taking notes on my reasons for wanting to be in the program etc.... BEST of luck to everyone, keep us all informed here about your acceptances (staying positive we will ALL be there!!)

    Cheers to my (hopefully) future classmates!!

    Yes, I did feel like my interviewer was trying to convince me to go there. Are they not giving phone calls anymore? I've begun to stare at my phone, even though it's way too early.

    nermface this forum is the first place I've heard of the acceptance phonecall, so I couldn't tell you about that part. I don't see any mention of it on the current website. The smaller number of applicants is encouraging though in terms of more of us getting in! I typically don't answer my phone unless I recognize the number, but I've been answering lately anyway just in case!!

    Does anyone know how much they expect for the acceptance deposit? And/or what vaccinations we need? I saw on one of the forums that we have to have had a physical by June 30

    I think I read $600 from previous posts/cohorts, but it may have changed.

    Not certain of the vacs, we might be told upon our acceptance ^_^

    Wow, August?? That seems insane!! What a nightmare to get everything done/purchased/arranged in just a month! Your course load sounds wild, you'll definitely be "warmed up" for the fall!

    Hi All, I am wondering if I could butt in with a question about the U of R program.. I am looking at applying for fall of 2014 and it looks like a fantastic program but the only thing holding me back is the cost. It is by far the most expensive program I am considering and they come right out on their website and say that there is little available for scholarships/grants so most people take loans for the full amount. Is this a deterrent to anybody? Is the program so good that it warrants the cost? Thanks in advance for any input

    Butt away! Honestly, I was totally taken aback by the cost, but when I thought about it... the medical field is the best debt to get into. That's what I keep repeating to myself! And I know when it comes to getting a BSN, they say it doesn't matter which school you go to as long as it's accredited... But I think certain hospitals, school does matter. And UR is one of the top nursing programs in the nation. You're going to get loads of experience compared to other programs.
