How far in advance will/did you know you were accepted?

  1. How soon does your school let you know you made it into the program?

    I just read a post where someone already knows for Fall of 2008, but I don't even know yet for Spring of 2008! :uhoh21:

    I won't find out until November if I'll be in for the Spring, which starts January 22. How far in advance do YOU know that you'll be in the program for a specific semester?

    I will find out before December 15th if I was accepted to Johns Hopkins ABSN to start late May 2008, but thats only because I'm applying early decision. Apps are due Nov 1st, so they make us wait a month an a half, not bad!

    I guess my main concern with this is that it doesn't seem like a lot of time to get your ducks in a row...I wish I had some sort of form that told me everything I needed to do because I know there are some things I'm probably not aware of at this point that I'll need to purchase or have done. I'm one who likes to be prepared weeks before, so with this, I almost feel like it may force me to cut it down to the wire!!! 2 months doesn't seem like much time!

    Definitely check with the program, I know many schools offer assistance in the form of a checklist so you know exactly what you need to purchase (books, supplies, equipment), immunizations required, any malpractice insurance you may need, uniforms, etc. I'm sure they will be happy to assist you if you contact them! Good for you for trying to get organized in advance, that's my plan! :spin:

    It mainly comes down to money...do a little bit at a time so it doesn't strain the wallet as much!! I will see if the school would supply me with a checklist ahead of time or not!

    Good luck everyone in your preperations!!!

    I applied in Oct 2006, and found out in Feb 2007 that I will start school in Jan 2008. So almost a year now that I've known I've been accepted.

    My school is rolling admissions though so they do not have deadlines to apply. You apply whenever and then get accepted (or not) until the class is full. If the class is full then they will accept you for the next class coming up. I think they do this since you can only apply ONCE if you get denied you can never apply to that school again.
