University of Washington BSN Fall 2012 - page 5

I'm surprised that this year I haven't seen any threads about people applying to UW's program. What's going on? Where are all the 2012 hopefuls? Reveal yourselves ;) Good luck to everyone!... Read More

    I think it went well for me, much better than my ABSN proctored essay. I read through the writing prompt first, decided to go with pt. A and wrote an short outline. I agree, there really doesn't seem to be enough time to write a draft and a final paper. (Funny that so many of us picked pt A!) Then, I worked on the math problems for about 10 mins. Did anyone think #2 was strangely easy? I checked twice to make sure I was doing it right. And #3 would have been very confusing if you didn't know what mg/kg/day meant (I feel bad if that happened to anyone).
    Anyway, I spent the rest of the time writing my final and wrote exactly 2pg. Actually, I was pretty surprised because this writing prompt was almost the same as this year's UW ABSN writing prompt. The patients were different but the questions (personal and profession gain and challenges) were the same. For the ABSN proctored essay I thought I did horribly. Halfway through writing it I changed the pt. I selected. But it still worked out well for me, so don't worry too much if you think the essay didn't go well. They look at the whole application!!!
    The next 2 months are going to pass so slowly! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!

    I thought Carolyn Chow said 280 students in the auditorium and 30 off-site, so that sounds about right. With 96 seats our chances are about 1:3. Yeah! That is much better than the initial 20% chance (1:5) based on the original 475 applicants.

    I remember them saying something similar to that also... still good odds either way

    funny how we all heard different things at the same time, could have sworn it was 230 at the school and 30 off site! either way, still better than 472. i tortured myself for days over this essay, but i find comfort in that i did the best i could with what i had at that time! the 3rd essay scenario even though i didnt pick it has been on my mind, it was so different from the other two! ive been thinking its either a trick question or the best critical thinking one! well good luck guys, see you in April!

    I am 100 percent certain she said 230 were doing the essay there and 30 more were off-site, so that gives us 260 total.

    I heard 230 and 260 also. Very odd that we all heard differently! Haha makes me wonder...
    Thanks to everybody for their input on here! Makes this whole process a little easier.

    Like I said before, I'm also 100% sure it was 230 on-site, 30 off-site! Better odds

    I got my UW acceptance letter (I'm a returning student) and it says I have to pay my deposit by May 1. Do you guys think I should send my deposit before April or should I wait to find out whether I got into the SoN so I don't lose the money? I know Carolyn Chow said we need to be enrolled in UW before we can be accepted, or something like that.

    What do you all think?

    My understanding was that she was saying if we hadn't already applied UW, we needed to do that ASAP. I was surprised when she said that though, because I couldn't imagine that anyone hadn't done that yet, since it stressed on the application instructions to do that plenty of time before applying to the SoN. Also, the deadline for UW applications was supposedly Feb. 15, the day of the proctored essay, which also made it odd. However, that was the way I understood it, so my opinion would be that you could wait to put down the deposit until you find out if you're accepted. Also, the notification period for non-returning transfer students isn't until June-July, so it wouldn't make sense for those applicants to need to be enrolled before being accepted. If you're still unsure though, you could just call them up. Congrats on the acceptance! 1 down, 1 to go

    One down, one to go...

    I would wait until notification from the SoN too, that way if you hear from another school you can use that for a deposit there instead of having multiple deposits out. Just my input.

    I applied for summer quarter that way if I am accepted, I can start in the optional summer classes that way I wont have to take 17 credits the first quarter and it takes a slight load off of spring quarter also.

    Hehe I wish I saw it as "one down, one to go" but to me there's only ONE

    But I think I'll wait since other people haven't gotten acceptances yet. Do you guys know when that will happen? Are any of you returning students, too?

    For Transfer students, we won't hear until May-June, which is way too long, IMO.

    Nursing, we wont hear until April 15th-ish...
