Edgewood College Post-Baccalaureate Accelerated Program

  1. Has anyone applied or is planning to apply to Edgewood College's accelerated program 2012-2013? Or is there anyone who has already completed the program? I was curious about any feedback you could provide and if you were aware of how many people apply each year?

    Thank you

    Hi! I applied! Kind of late, but when I submitted, they were still accepting apps. I actually just sent in my supplemental questionnaire today.

    Did you end up applying?

    Ya I applied for the first cycle. I got my acceptance letter on Feb 15! I am so excited! I was hoping someone would have some feedback on here but it doesnt seem to be a popular program. Let me know if you get accepted

    I'm in California! did you interview and a do a writing sample before you were offered admission?

    No, the advisor told me that they had so many applicants that they eliminated the interview and writing sample. The questionnaire is the last step. In my questionnaire they told me the date I would find out if I was accepted.

    Hey, I was wondering if you know how much newly graduated RN's make in the Madison area? Also, how's the cost of living there?
  13. by   alrn25
    Im not sure how much new graduates are making. Madison is has not been affected by the economy as much as other states in the US. So the cost of living is not as cheap as other places.

    Thanks. I was accepted so we are planning to try and make this happen. Just a hefty price tag...someone at the school told me she would feel confident saying new grads make at least $50K.
