Yale GEPN Fall 2010 - page 18

Okay, I know it's early, but Yale is my first choice, and I'm already terrified that I'm going to screw it up. My goal is New England (although I'm also applying to Pace because they have this... Read More

    Congrats, everyone! Is anyone trying to choose between Yale and Johns Hopkins? I just don't know where to go!

    Hi Guys,

    I am also in for Adult/Geriatric NP. It was my birthday yesterday, and it was the best gift (email) ever! I am now choosing between Yale and U Penn. Anyone in the similar situation? Thank you!

    I'm also choosing between Yale and Penn for FNP. I think it's going to be Penn as long as they accept my transfer credit. I really liked the campus and area and it sounds like they're usually better with financial aid. They also seem a bit more flexible with taking time off, going part time, or changing specialties, which is good cause I'm scared of commitment!

    I've been to New Haven before but I haven't specifically visited the school. What are your thoughts?

    Hi Wildschmidt,

    I agree with you. U Penn does offer more flexibility in several areas. Not to mention the BSN degree can actually go a long way if you want to take a break, to make/save money, or to gain some work experience before continuing the MSN. I've been to Yale School of Nursing, and I liked the school and the faculty staffs. They were very professional and helpful (especially on the interview day). At the same time, I have been having a great time dealing with faculty and financial aid at U Penn, too! I mean they (U Penn) are seriously helpful, and really assist you every step of the way. I hate being so indecisive now!

    Anyway, I am going for the U Penn Open day next week (Feb 26). I hope I would have some "clearing" by then.

    Once again, thank you!

    Is anyone choosing between UVM and Yale (adult psych)?
  13. by   eazye
    yep, i also got into uvm (fnp) and yale (midwifery). i feel like i have a lot more info about yale, mostly because i've actually been there, on interview day, but also just because there's a lot more online. i'm in california and have barely spent any time on the east coast - and i've never been to vermont at all. so it's really hard to feel like i'm making an informed decision.

    although i haven't seen financial aid offers from either school, it sounds like uvm doesn't have any grants/schlolarships for the first year, while yale does. of course, yale is much more expensive...ugh. then there's the class size - do i want to be in a cohort of 14, or 80? and do i want urban or rural clinical experience...?

    what are you thinking??
