I am applying to Marymount's BSN program as a transfer student for Fall 2011. I was wondering if anyone knew how competitive it is to get into this program? I took the TEAS V and I got an adjusted individual score of 86.7% but my... Read More

    Hi beverly25,

    Thanks for the message! I have not heard from Marymount yet. I'm really antsy. I still have had an overall really good impression of their program, despite some of the negative comments. I went to a really huge undergraduate university so I'm used to handling univsersity administration and I know that it can be difficult sometimes so that doesn't worry me too much. In terms of the nursing reputation, I've heard good things from nurses in the area. The nurse at the office where I work now went to UDC and said that Marymount was great. It's still at the top of my list. I just hope to hear back soon! I'm getting really nervous that I won't get in. I called yesterday because I got a letter from the Financial Aid office and they said I should hear back in a week and a half or so.

    Oh and CONGRATULATIONS ON GETTING IN!!!!!! :-) If you're going to be in Arlington anyway, I can't think of a better situation. Remember, everybody who is a nurse has toldme that it really doesn't matter where you go to school!

    Are you waiting to hear back from any other DC-area schools?

    One final thing. I went to visit the school in January and they had just opened a brand new building all for nursing and health sciences! The building is AMAZING! Honestly, if they're investing that much in the program it can only be good news for us! They had a bunch of nursing labs and it looked like a really really great place to learn. I realllllly hope I get in!! Beverly25, where did you get your undergrad degree in and what was your major?

    I went to a really big undergrad program too..and i hated it!! i went to uc berkeley..and i always felt like i was drowning in those huge classes. that's my main reason for really wanting to go to marymount because i found somewhere that 50% of their classes are 20 people or less..and i like that it's 75% female...i went to an all girls high school and i miss that type of environment.

    the thing is i didnt apply for the accelerated program because my grades for my undergrad were really bad (i had a bad boyfriend at the time and i was always going through drama and really just let everything deteriorate) so i applied as a transfer student instead. im really, really excited that i got in...and i think that if you're hearing really good things about the nursing program then that's all im going to worry about. i just sent in my deposit and intent to enroll. let me know when you hear from them!!

    do you have aim? i'd love to chat about school and the area in general if you do....let me know...

    oh forgot to add that my undergrad degree is in african american studies...and that i'm still waiting to hear back from georgetown...i'm still waiting to hear from other schools as well but not in the d.c. area and so i feel like even if i got in i wouldnt go there..

    i feel like i wouldn't go to georgetown if i was accepted either just because i already got my own taste of a big school with a big name and hated it.

    where did you go? and what degree did you get?

    so i can't send direct messages!! so annoying!! i got yours and would like to talk about the area you live in...we're looking for places to live now (bc we'll be moving there by july 1st) and it's sort of hard when you don't know what's a good area and what's not.

    and i'm totally on the same page as you as far as georgetown...(ie, i think it's a long shot for me too and i wouldn't even go there unless they offered me all kinds of money!)

    you can email me if you want.. thebeesknees25@gmail.com

    I agree! I have been accepted as well and a lot of these posts are really, really turning me off from the program.

    From what I've heard it's not that bad. Seems like it can be disorganized as far as administration is concerned...but I really don't know of a school that's not. Are you going to accept and attend? Email me if you are!

    I'm not sure yet... I haven't heard back from two of the other programs I applied to, so I'm not quite ready to make that decision yet!
