University of Rochester - ABPNN Fall 2013Register Today!
- by AlmondB10 Feb 14Hi, just thought I'd start a thread for University of Rochester's ABPNN Fall 2013 applicants...
- rainkissedleaves - It's an excellent program! I'm currently living in the area and I've heard so many success stories. I notice you were also accepted at Marquette University. The problem I'm facing is over the admission decision timeline. Marquette starts in May and U of R told me they won't send acceptance letters until May.
- Hey AlmondB10. I got a call today to schedule an interview. I'm immeasurably excited to even be considered! Good luck to you!
- Nermface, I scheduled an interview today as well. Like you, I feel incredibly lucky to have made it to the next stage. I think I'm actually more excited than nervous for the interview at this point. All the best to you, too!
- really? boo. oh well, it's still a great opportunity
- Almond- I've been reading the posts regarding UR's accelerated program, and I had found out through the grapevine that it was a part of the application process. If you don't mind my asking, what other programs did you apply to? What are your stats like? UR is such a great school and has a wonderful reputation. I'm between excited and fearful of what my outcome will look like!
- I wonder if admission decisions take so long because they interview every applicant. I suppose it shows they evaluate applicants holistically... Anyway, to answer your question - I have volunteer, work, and research experience. I have a good undergrad GPA and a great grad GPA. I'm a little concerned because my background is in psychology/education rather than science. I also applied to Marquette, Johns Hopkins, George Washington, and University of Wisconsin. What about you?
- It seems that classes tend to grow larger and larger as each cohort goes, but I may be wrong about that.
I have a pretty blemished academic past, but have improved in my prerequisite courses since I've graduated. I also have international experience (taught English overseas for almost five years). I hope they will look past my earlier years of schooling and see how much I've progressed. UR is my top choice. I've also applied to Kent State, Shenandoah, UMD (traditional bsn), and Cal State. I'm also considering applying to Loyola Chicago before the May deadline.
