MGH Accelerated BSN - Spring 2013

  1. 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 received the email this morning saying my application is complete, so now the waiting begins.

    Anyone else applying for this cycle? We can commiserate during the wait and hopefully share the good news later.

    Hi whittle03,

    I applied last week of June. So I'm waiting like you are. Do you know when we're suppose to hear back?

    @tiala -- they said 6-8 weeks from the deadline, so hopefully mid to late-August.

    @jill -- I'm at Dana-Farber, too.

    3.2 BS in Biology/Pre-Med from Ohio State in '07. Worked in a transplant research lab for 3 years, and have been a research coordinator in oncology for 2 years.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Hi whittle03 and JillGreenberg,

    What were your prereq gpa? I'm really nervous because my undergrad gpa is really low.

    I haven't done my GPA out but my grades were:

    Chemistry B+
    Stats B+
    A+P 1 B+
    A+P 2 A
    Microbio (just finished yesterday) either B+ or A-
    Human development (still in progress)

    I'm a B+ student for the most part, haha

    If I get what I expect to in Microbio and Human Development, I should have about a 3.48 in my prereqs.

    Are you not taking Nutrition? I have about a 3.7 in my prereqs, I hope that makes up for my low undergrad gpa.

    Oh yes I took Nutrition and got a B+.. I forgot about that one

    How long does it take to find out? On the website it says 8-10 weeks after the deadline so that points to the end of August, or middle of September.. SO far away
