Hey everyone! I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone else has applied to Drexel University for the MSN programs. I have applied to the FNP program, finished the app in mid January and am anxiously waiting for a response. 

Anyone else waiting on admission decisions? My GPA was 3.2 so I am nervous it will be too low to get in. Hoping I get some good luck! 

Also, if anyone is in/has completed drexels program, what is your advice for balancing work and school? 

Thanks!

I'm currently in my 2nd year of their dual peds primary/acute NP program. I'm married, have 2 kids, and work 40 hours per week and have been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA. It is all about carving out the time for school work where you can. In the first year, all the courses are unsynchronized and you can work at your own pace, but the courses are broken down into modules with set assignments and testing dates. In the first 1.5 years all NP programs take the same courses and it breaks out in the 2nd year by specialty. It is hard work, but doable. If you applied in January, you should hear back April/May timeframe.

I'd say you would find out something around mid-march-late march. I was told 4-6 weeks from end of January for a first round. I finished my app around Jan 20th.

I don't really know how competitive Drexel is. It's very well regarded--but it also seems to be a large school and given the national "spread" of students, it may be that more spots are available than a traditional program. I'm not sure though!

I think because I applied so early, I heard back sooner. That’s really the only thing I can think of but keep hope alive!!

My enrollment advisor said it would be 4-6 weeks post first review (that is if you got your app completed by end of Jan). I'm sure they are reviewing in order received--so if one applied in Oct/Nov, a decision might have already come through. If you applied close to the first review, then I would not expect to hear anything until mid-end of March.

I have a 3.2 GPA and one year of experience. I'm nervous since my GPA is on the lower end, and I do not have as much experience as some others. But I'd love to go to school now before I start a family. So im staying hopeful!

Mid March feels so far away!
