NYU Accelerated BSN Fall 2010

  1. Hi everyone!
    I just received my acceptance letter to NYU's Accelerated BSN program for Fall 2010. I just wanted to reach out to other accepted students so I thought I'd start a thread! I haven't decided whether or not to accept the offer because of $, relocation, and other things. I have so many questions that I don't know where to start but feel free to share your thoughts!

    I'm preparing to apply to Accelerated BSN programs, and it would be great to know what accepted students GPA is.

    Congrats to all Accepted Future RNs!!

    that's the attitude i have about it! i was accepted to a few other schools, but i wouldn't be able to live with myself if i turned down nyu. i'd always wonder "what if i went there?" especially after i watched that little video on the website a million times, and read the handbook and bulletin backwards and forwards! lol i'll definitely be attending too! now i'm just trying to figure out where i'll live since i'll be relocating from texas.

    my overall gpa was a 3.3 from my previous undergrad. i was a biology major in the honors program. my pre-req gpa was 3.8. wouldn't have considered myself a shoe in or anything...however, i'm super excited nonetheless!!! good luck applying!

    Congrats! I applied as a traditional transfer student and it seems that the only students receiving their acceptance letters are accelerated nursing applicants.. maybe that is a good sign for me?

    lol yeah thats a big move but it'll be exciting i'm sure! i was thinking about living there, but i figured i'll already be building up so much debt just with tuition lol and it wouldn't be worth it since i already live just a pretty quick train ride away. it would be exciting to live in manhattan for a little while though, i love it there & have always wanted to lol so you're def lucky!

    anyone heard anything yet about when we'll receive financial aid information?
  11. by   ChristinaG123
    They conveniently deliver the financial aid information after you dish out your $500-$800 deposit... which is BS but they're all just trying to get your money anyways. I haven't decided whether or not I'll accept the offer, but seriously, who says "no" to NYU? I think I might regret it forever but then I might also regret the $90,000 in debt. I got accepted to a local college in Massachusetts (Curry College) which only has 32 students. It's very personal and I think that might be what I need. I've heard a lot of varying opinions about NYU's Accelerated BSN since the program was only established a couple years ago. I think the Class of 2012 would be the 4th or 5th cohort so they're still trying to work out the kinks. I have totally mixed feelings about it and I wish they'd give me more than 2 weeks to make up my mind!!!

    Ahhhhhh!

    wow didn't realize that you had to pay to get it lol! i think i just expected it to come separately, and soon... i definitely understand how you feel. i actually was accepted to Concordia - NY whose program is even newer than NYU (and is currently in the works of getting accreditation so nyu is looking way more established right now). i was accepted to Loyola-Chicago too, whose program has been around for a while, however, i can't see myself saying no to nyu! lol. good luck deciding

    Congrats!!! Genuine, I've noticed you received your letter yesterday and you're from Texas, which means...I'll probably hear bad news since I live around New York and seeing as to how you got your letter, but I haven't heard anything yet is pretty much another bad sign for me... May I ask what year you've graduated? Maybe they are still reviewing my app. until after graduation--which will be in May of this year. I'm so frustrated with myself.

    have u confirmed with them that your application was complete? i saw on another thread that some people who hadn't heard yet called and found out there were issues with their transcripts/ their applications weren't complete and that's why they hadn't heard anything yet. i'd call them, just to be sure about that. I graduated May 2009, however i'm finishing A&P 2 right now because the course i took in my undergrad wouldn't suffice for their requirements. for some reason, i dont think they have sent out all the letters yet so don't count it as a loss! someone on another thread found out she was accepted over the phone, however, they told her she wouldn't receive her letter for a week or two. maybe they send them out in batches? good luck waiting!
