    Congrats! I got accepted as well but am still waiting to hear back from another school before I make my decision. Do you know alot about the program there at Barry and its surrounding area?

    I do not know too much yet. I have to make an appointment with the nursing advisor to set up my schedule and then I will know more. I am in the process now of trying to get all my immunizations taken care of. I know we have to take an entrance exam called the HESI. We need to recieve a 70% or above, but i heard its not too hard.

    Hi, are you talking about Barry University in Miami, FL? I tried to apply to their 2nd Bachelor program but was too late . Do you know if they take students in the Spring semesters or only fall?

    darnit, it was a table but didn't go through. anyhow the first dates are the FILE By dates, and the 2nd one closest to it is the NOTIFICATION dates if you submit a completed file by then. looks like you just passed the May 1st deadline, but the next one is July 2nd.

    Hey i just wanted to let you guys know that there was too many people accepted this fall. So now if you were accepted and did not register yet. you are on a waiting list for those of you who are declining your spot, do it soon because a lot of people are waiting and may have to start in January

    Have you had your meeting yet? She is the Nursing Advisor. She told me about it.
