George Washington Spring ABSN 2014


Hi everyone!

I am new to posting. I am currently in the process of re-applying to GW after being waitlisted for the Spring cohort. The admissions counselor was very helpful with the application process and encouraged me to re-apply. Is there anyone else who is applying for the Spring cohort? Anyone who is re-applying?

Could anyone tell me about how they have enjoyed GW and what made them choose GW?

Yes, I applied and received my acceptance letter early this week. Good luck! I applied to other schools as well. GWU has a prestigous name, although the program is fairly new they have had a Masters in Nursing program for some time. I love the area and the fact that the class size is small, appoximately 60 students. Did you finish your prereqs?

Specializes in ER, IICU, PCU, PACU, EMS. Has 17 years experience.

Moved to the Washington DC Nursing Programs forum.

I did finish my prereqs. Congrats! Did you apply to the Master's program or the Accelerated program?

For those who were accepted, how long after did you receive your notification? I sent my application on 9/26/13 and received an email the next day confirming they'd received my application and will update me within 2 weeks. Does the follow up email give you a GW ID?

I applied late August and have not received a decision yet. I did get an email a couple weeks ago saying my application has been submitted to the Admissions Committee for review.

For those of you accepted, do you know what type of GPA/experience/etc. they want? I have finished 4/6 prereqs & am currently taking the last 2. I feel I have a solid GPA and experience and am hopeful that I will get in.

Any advice or input will help! Thanks :)
