Hi! Just wanted to start another thread relating to GW's accelerated nursing program
. Is anyone applying? They extended the deadline to March 1st and wondering if there weren't many applicants or they just allowed for more time? I'm sending mine in this weekend and am excited!
Thanks, everyone! =)
@NYCGal: When I said they post, it is through that portal, where you submitted the supplemental portion of the application (also online). I first received an email from GWU saying I had a message on that portal/site. It also had the link to it, within the email. So, instead of getting a letter in the mail or an email with my acceptance, I had to log in to the portal, click on the message, and that is where I got my letter. Kind of a bit ridiculous if you ask me, but ... whatever. =)
@AmesRT6510: I think I actually did the same essay as I did for Nursing CAS ... though I don't think it's a bad thing to highlight something different. I guess now that I think about it, why would they ask for an additional essay if they already have the one from Nursing CAS (which as an aside, that WHOLE NursingCAS process was RIDICULOUS)? I would use the second essay to explain any shortcomings in your application (gpa, etc). Just a thought as it gives another opportunity to show who YOU are ... not what the numbers represent. I hope that makes sense.
I wish you all the best of luck! && if you hear any news regarding GW experiences, I'd really appreciate it! Thank you!
