    I hope we do end up being classmates!! I'm sending in my application for USA on Wednesday (payday). Lol. These apps get expensive. USA does not require recommendations, GRE, or an essay which makes me wonder with so many applicants, how can I make it in with nothing to make me stand out? Oh well, I'll never know unless I try right?

    Yeah it is kinda scary with USA that they don't request any of the things UAB does..I've also read that they have so many slots that can be filled unlike UAB and it is a first come first serve which really is stressful. But I'm like you, won't hurt to try..I just heard back from UAB that they received all my transcripts and I was cleared for the gre..Now I guess the wait begins!..These next couple months are going to be rough!

    I haven't heard anything yet. They may not have received all my transcripts yet. Did they email you?

    Yeah they emailed me telling me that there were some changes to my online account and to sign on to see those changes. I signed on and it said that they received all my transcripts and that my gre waver was cleared.

    I'm waiting to hear from U of Penn. So far I only applied there. If I don't get in, then that is my sign to take an addition year to work and save before school.

    My husband and I are both nurses interested in getting our NP degree. He just applied to FNP programs at: UNCC, GSU (good to see someone liked the program!), U of Tampa, UNCW, UT at Chattanooga, USouth Carolina, UAHuntsville, and Winston Salem State University. Anyone familiar with any of these programs beside GSU? He has a low GPA from his first Bachelor degree but a 3.98 in BSN with 5 going on 6 years of nursing experience. I can't find any information regarding when we should expect to hear if he is admitted. We will be moving across the country if he gets in and already have found a buyer for our house so our fingers are crossed!
