    I personally took out federal loans and did not have to apply for additional outside private loans. I was fortunate to receive one of VUSN's several scholarships offered to incoming students in addition to two smaller outside scholarships (around $1,000 a piece). I don't know anyone who has had any issues covering the costs of school and living. A friend of mine attending a nursing school in MO did apply for one large private loan to cover all of her costs, and the only setback she had was to have a family member co-sign even though she had great established credit.

    There are a wide array of scholarships available to MSN students, the key is to begin your search early and commit to writing the essays now, since many of the deadlines coincide in March and April. Hope this helps!

    Did you receive your acceptance letter in the mail or on their webisite?
    I received my initial notification of acceptance via e-mail, and then received a letter in the mail a week or two later

    Its great to be done with the interview. Waiting for a decision is the hardest part. Incher, are you already in the program? Or are you waiting for a decision as well? What's your specialty, if you don't mind me asking?

    @jb30-
    No, not currently in the program. I am waiting for a decision as well. I applied for Pre-specialty AGPCNP.
