I have gotten in my application as well. I was going to check with them this week to see if they got everything but with all the snow we have gotten here everything has been closed most of the week. 90 is really high it seems like most of the schools around here except under 40.

vang1127 the whole dc area is pretty expensive. But there are parts of Arlington that are cheaper than others.

metrogirl why are taking the TEAS if you are applying for the second degree program?

Hi!

I'm just arriving home from a very snowy TEAS exam.

The people in the admissions office recommended I take it. It was RIDICULOUSLY easy. I scored in the 99th percentile (both in the program and national). It tested basic arithmetic and like..chart reading skills.

I was shocked because the flier they handed out said that a 40 (im guessing percentile) was passing, and a 70 was competitive. That makes me somewhat question the quality of the school, as the questions were extremely basic.

Either way, I'm pretty happy about my scores. If I'm correct and a 70 is a competitive score, I think I have an extremely good chance of being accepted. Of course they look at other things, but this gives me a sense of security.

As far as Arlington housing, I've been looking a bit and it is very expensive, but there are some apartments for less than $1000/room/month. It seems like the best deals are if you rent a room in a group house. You can get even better deals if you choose to live in a neighboring town a few miles away from Arlington, like Mclean or Alexandria. I know I definitely want to live immediately in Ballston, so I can be in walking distance of the metro station/shuttle stop, and save money on gas.

I'll also got my app in for the first review date. I'm gonna call and confirm though. We should all know within a month whether we're gonna be Marymount nurses!

I'm curious what the age distribution and male/female ratio will be for the entering students.

Hi All,

hey everyone,

I have my application in and am anxiously awaiting a decision! MU is my first choice and I live in FL so hopefully everything will work out. I just wanted to jump in on this post to see how everyone feels about MU. Ive only visited Arlington once in December for a week and I completely fell in love with the area. Hopefully we will all hear GOOD news soon!!!

Hi Jaclyn,

I am from the DC area and Arlington is a great area, plus it's only a few minutes from DC which has a lot to do. Not that you will have time to do any of it :)

I just got my letter today conferming that they have all my materials. The descions for the first review will be sent out March 15 (I think, might be the 12). This is if you got everything in by Feb. 19th. I know the snow backed everything up here and they mail was about a week behind. So hopefully you all sent in everything early.

I have lived here my whole life and had not heard of Marymount until I started looking for nursing schools. But from what I have heard so far most people seem to like it.

Hi!

Metrogirl - Living in a group house is def the way to go if you're trying to keep the cost down on living. Check out craigslist.com for houses for rent/roommates, landlords and tenants usually start posting around June/July. The house I lived in 2 years ago with a group of girls in Arlington we found on Craigslist and my rent was only $760 in a 4br 3ba house.

I live in a house now off of Wilson Blvd in Ballston and my rent without utilities is 1000 a month.. so total for each month, I pay around 1200-1400 on "living." This varies due to VA's water bill - it comes every 3mo and it's a hefty one. Also add Falls Church to your neighboring areas, it's like 5 miles down the road and sits on the orange metro line like Arlington. The city of Arlington is pretty small, so if you lived in a neighboring town and can access the metro, you're golden. If you are going to commute, the Ballston mall has a parking garage and you can purchase a monthly parking ticket so you don't have to worry about street parking... which is limited, all the time.

I got my letter saying all my documents were in and ready to be reviewed for MU. I'm a little confused if I missed the first review date or not.. I had all my documents in before the week of Feb 15th but my letter was dated Feb 22. I am getting really nervous/anxious about finding out from schools. Oh, and I thought the TEAS test was only for students who didn't have a BS degree?

Does anyone know how much tuition is for Marymount? I'm trying to figure out which school would be the cheapest option. I'm already sitting on school loans, so I'd prefer not to take out a huge loan if I get accepted to a cheaper school.

Good luck everyone! :)

The deadline was the 19th for the first review and they sent out the letters on the 22nd. So you are in the first review. You don't need the TEAS if you have a BS and at least a 2.8 GPA.

I think tuition is around $40,000 but I haven't been able to find out exactly. If someone knows for sure I would like to know as well.

Hey everyone,

I also got my letter saying that all my stuff is in and i will be in the first review too. all of your tips on housing have been really helpful and hopefully i will be moving to VA is a few months! As far as tuition it says on their website that it is around $22,370. dose anyone know if this is an in-state tuition and a higher tuition if you are out of state? i was thinking since it is a private school there was no difference but i could be wrong.

Best to all!

Hi all,

I got a postcard saying that they have completed a preliminary review of my application and that I have been waived from the TEAS exam.

As to the cost for the entire program it should be around $40k - that's what I have read on the other threads.

Good luck everyone and I hope we will hear good news soon!

Hey Everyone

Can you guys tell me when you got your letters/postcards? I only got one letter from them saying thank you for applying...blah blah blah and then a sheet of paper attached with all the deadlines and requirements.
