    I've also applied but haven't heard anything from admissions. NursingCAS also just calculated my GPA this afternoon. Have you guys submitted your FAFSA paperwork?

    Mindylane - did you apply for any external scholarships or receive any assistance? Wondering what kind of options are available. Do you like the program thus far? Thank you!

    Hi Nickriga,
    There were a few scholarships available for students that were essay-based or for minorities in nursing. I wrote an essay and was awarded some money towards school... it wasn't a whole lot, but basically paid for half a semester, so any little bit helps.

    I really enjoy the program a lot. I think the BEST thing about it, by far, is the professors. They absolutely, without any exception, want you do succeed and do anything to make sure you do. I know this was something I read as a criticism for other schools, so I feel so fortunate that the staff are so great. We have also gotten guest speakers and have fun projects.

    It's tough, but overall, I am really happy I chose GWU

    Mindyland, I'm hoping you can answer a few questions about the program and the Ashburn, VA area. What is the NCLEX pass rate? What is the cost of living? If I choose to attend, I'll be relocating from NY. Would you say it's easy to meet other young professionals in the area?
