  1. Hi all!
    Just wanted to start a forum for TJU FACT-1 or 2 applicants to the Center City location. I submitted my app August 10 and had my interview yesterday. Feel free to contribute and ask questions! Let's help each other out during this stressful process : )

    Congrats initi8r!! When did you interview? And did you apply anywhere else? I applied to Penn and Drexel as well.

    interview was on the 12th of this month, and got notified about acceptance 9 days later. I applied to gwynned mercy and drexel. got accepted to gwynned, but was holding out paying the $500 deposit until i found out from Jefferson. Drexel doesn't start their reviews till next year i think. I was midway applying to Penn when i realized who am i kidding, $110k BSN degree from Penn is the same BSN degree from Jefferson and gwynned. And from current students in the program, they said their (Penns) finance office is a mess.

    I see, thanks for the info! Does Jefferson have a similar policy to Drexel (60 days to accept and pay $500 deposit)? I'm wondering because Penn is actually my top choice but interviews aren't offered until November. I know their tuition is quite high but past students have told me they are pretty generous with scholarships, so I figured I'd give it a try.

    Yes, it states deposit is due within three weeks of being accepted. Scholarships are definitely a plus, if you can get one. I never really considered it.

    For accepted students- if you don't mind, could you share some info regarding your application? Are you aware of average GPA of student that gets into this program? Looking to apply next year.
