    Victory 925, You can accept your financial aid before you receive your admissions decision. If you do not get accepted, then just send an email to the financial aid office letting them know. They will just void your acceptance, and it will not affect your financial aid eligibility at any other school.

    For all of you waiting on SF State Generic Masters....

    I called the nursing dept. today and was told letters are not expected to go out until mid-late May!

    That is so frustrating- so much of my life is contingent on this decision (as others of course). I am sure it is all the budget cuts ect, I hope it doesn't mean less students will be admitted? Did she give you more details? I will go by the office today- see if they will give me any info. For now all we can do is hang in there and think of other things.

    I understand why they want to push the start date back, but I am confused as to why they cannot provide us with a clear-cut answer as to our acceptance. Are they taking additional time to consider all the applicants? There are many aspects of my life lying on this acceptance, or not, and to continually push it further and further back makes it more difficult for the students. And then the financial aid, the moving, the money. I hope we will truly see the letter mid-May.

    So- I stopped by the office and said they haven't made any decisions yet and the date will be pushed back to the first week of May. So there is still at least hope!

    I just called SFSU, their recording now says letters for their graduate program will be mailed in the first week of May.
    Hopefully just a few more days of waiting!

    Latest update- I went by the nursing department today- decisions have been made- the department has sent their decisions to the admissions office whom will then process them and mail out letters. Another week or 2 knowing SFSU. Almost there!!

    I received a decision letter today. It appears they are splitting the class into two sections. One starts in Fall 09, the other in Spring 2010. I was accepted for Spring 2010 entrance. The letter does not state how students are chosen for each cohort. CSU Sacramento did something similar with their ASBSN program with the top 20 students starting sooner. I assume this is the case here, but my letter does specifically say I am scheduled for public health/ community nursing emphasis so the emphasis each student chose may play a role in start date.

    They want decisions from students regarding their intent to enroll by May 22th (the actual intent form states the 26th as the deadline). This would have been a great program if it would have started this June. I will instead get a second bachelor's from Sacramento State. The time commitment (I, for example, would likely be taking classes until 2013) for this "generic" master's program is just too great.
