    Congrats!

    Hi, I got in for Fall 2012 (so excited), but I have a question for someone who is already in the program or at least knows some details.

    I got in but am missing two prerequisites: A&P 2 and microbiology. I planned to take them both at a local community college, but microbiology was full 2-3 minutes after registration began. I told the professor my situation, but she said all I could do was come on the first day and hope someone drops the course. I will be doing that, but does anyone know if I can still get in and take microbiology while in the ABSN program? I have heard that you can still enter with an outstanding prerequisite, but I am unsure if it matters which ones you are missing. I'd appreciate any input!

    Oh no! This is not good....I haven't received any mail yet... I am wondering if I didn't get in then? Are you guys local or in a neighboring state to VA, DC or MD?

    I live in MD and didn't just no mail today! I am hoping tomorrow...

    Congrats to everyone else who has gotten in!I'm the applicant TxPatients mentioned upthread, whose application was delayed by a late transcript. I'm local to the NoVa area & perhaps that played a part in when my acceptance letter arrived.Is everyone here attending MU in the fall, or are you debating between several programs? I was, but have decided on Marymount, given their proximity & transferring all of my prerequisite courses. Shenandoah University was a close second, but I would have needed to take another class over the summer.

    I hope I get in and can share in thr excitement!! I am glad you chose Tabby_Cat. MU is the only school I applied thus far because of the Fall 2012 admission. I am done all pre-reqs and am waiting to finish up Chemistry having a B currently! Keep your fingers crossed...hoping for tomorrow's mail!

    Fingers crossed, Tx! Hopefully good news arrives in Saturday's mail. While waiting for their decision, I kept Googling to see if most schools sent out acceptances before rejections & couldn't find a solid answer, so it may be just an academic myth. Do you know if everything arrived in their offices by the deadline? I had one transcript come in a day late (I ordered it over two months prior) & it pushed my application to the next round, even though they told me over the phone it wouldn't be a problem. I got a waiver for the TEAS & even though all the grades from my first school were shown on the transcript from my graduating institution, they still needed the original school's paperwork, which was the late arrival.I think they have a third review date coming up, if anything in your application happened to go missing. Maybe call & check the status of your app on Monday, if you don't hear anything.

    Hi Tabby, Yes, I sent everything in a packet to ensure no delays. It was sent on Feb 27 and received the 28th. I was waived the TEAS too and a letter confirming all materials were received and my application was complete. My transcripts were all official and included in my packet as well. So everything was in way ahead of second review. Hopefully I'll hear something today!

    I got accepted at the beginning of March! I am working out the financial part now to see if it makes sense. Is anyone here looking for roommates or in need of a place? I live in MD so myself, my fiance and his daughter (6 years old) are looking to move to Arlington/Alexandria area. 3 bedroom options are usually better priced. If anyone is interested in talking more let me know!

    Congrats to everyone who got their acceptances!!

    Yes, 60,000 is about right.. thats what I am predicting as well. Alexandria is a nice area to live and not too bad of a commute to school. They probably wont let you accelerate without micro and anp 2.. those are prerequistes for classes you need in the first semester.

    Congrats to everyone who made it for the Fall '12 ABSN at MU. I also got accepted to the program. Has anyone received any information about when they will have orientations and talk about scheduling? @meswaa, how long did it take from acceptance to getting class schedule info? I am a busy mother of 3 who will be commuting from Loudoun County, Va every day for school. I am extremely nervous about how hectic it will be and hope I am given a lot of time to plan for my new crazy life!!! @meswaa, would you be willing to share your class schedule (not super detailed, just times, days of the week) with us newbies, just out of curiousity? Thanks. Oh, and has anyone thought about creating a facebook group for our cohort? Just a thought....
