MGH Accelerated BSN - Spring 2013 - page 2

Hi all, There were one or two comments at the end of the 2012 thread that went unanswered, so I figured I would start a thread for those applying to the MGH ASBN beginning January 2013. I... Read More

    @Jill yes its either the end of August or middle of September. I know its awhile from now.

    @ St3veC how was your first semester? Also, what was your prereq gpa? how's taking classes online?

    I do not know my prereq GPA but I think it's safe to say I had about a B+ avg in them. My undergrad GPA was a 3.49.

    As for online classes - they really aren't that bad. Right now my online classes are pathophysiology, biobehavioral and history of nursing. Luckily, the emphasis of this semester is placed on our nursing process and skills class (which meets in person). I really can't complain - we are placed in some of the best hospitals for our clinicals! (MGH, Brigham and Women's).

    Hi katecc11,

    If you don't mind what is your gpa and pre-req gpa? I want to see if I have a chance.

    I haven't heard if I've been accepted yet, so I'm not sure if I have a chance!

    We hear back in the next few weeks! I just finished Nutrition and sent in my transcript. I need to relax, I keep freaking myself out. LOL

    I also applied for the Spring 2013 start. I previously applied for the summer 2012 program and got waitlisted so I re-applied for again this time. I do know that the website says 8-10 weeks for decisions to be made and last time it took the full 10 weeks to hear back from MGH. Good luck to all!

    Did they send out emails the week prior to mailing out the letters? I had heard that but not sure if they still do that. At least the 10 week mark is close!

    I did get an email saying decisions had been mailed in the previous application earlier this year. I believe they basically sent out decisions and then emailed the whole group the next day or so saying FYI decisions have officially been mailed out. I did email them a couple time before that point asking the status of decisions and when they would finally be mailed out because it was getting later in the timeframe of the 8-10 weeks.

    heober03, if you don't mind, what was your GPA and other credentials the last time you applied and got waitlisted?

    Hi Jilly! It's Amy from the Red Cross. Are you doing CNA work at Dana Farber now?

    I'm really nervous about hearing back. I already got rejected from UMB, probably because my undergrad GPA was low. Hopefully my recent grades will push me through.
