    I turn 41 next month and will be starting NYU Accelerated BSN program this Fall 2013. Never too late.

    For those of you who have been admitted- The acceptance email indicated that our financial aid package would be updated within 3 days, but seeing as they don't seem to stick to their own deadlines, I was curious how long it actually took to see your financial aid results?
    The financial aid package information will not be sent unless you actually accept your offer. It should come after that. If the email does not come to your nyu email address timely, one place you might look is the home.nyu.edu. in the student center in ALBERT. you have to log in, then click on academics and click albert login, the student center. if they have financial aid package for you, there will be a section with links on financial aid, there.

    Hey everyone. So have any of you actually spoken with a student who went through the accelerated program? I'm still on the fence on whether or not to accept my acceptance offer and was hoping to get some insight from current students if the program was worth it. NYU was the only program I applied for that started in the Fall so my other option would be to wait and apply to programs that start in May like Columbia or Stony Brook. I was wondering if people thought spending the money on NYU was worth it and paid of with a job or what not in the end or helped them get in to NP programs.
    Have a friend that I had in pre-reqs in SF, that started the program in Fall 2012. He absolutely loves it. Best experience he could have asked for. Started clinicals right out of the gates. Totally do-able and challenging at the same time.

    I don't think there is a box for recommendation letter as it is not required. I don't have the box and have been told that all of my documents are complete including my two rec letters.

    Congrats to all the new admits!
    they will not show.

    @Celticcub, do you know what the NYUCN scholarship is for? I'm trying to figure out if the school gives out any scholarship money. I checked their website and they seem to only have 1 scholarship you have to apply for that accelerated bsn students can apply for. I know Columbia automatically gives each student a scholarship that ranges from 5k-25k to make the program a little more affordable.
    it looks to me like the NYUCN scholarship is similar to the Columbia one you refer to. it only says NYUCN scholarship. i didn't apply for anything additional at the time i completed FAFSA. its technically just the school trying to help out.

    What type of scholarship did people who were already admitted to NYU receive? I receive a little under $4k a semester and it seems that most people received a bit more than this...
    are you referring to the NYUCN scholarship? if so, that sounds about close to what i got for that portion specifically. i'm not a good example of what to expect, since i am coming from a very well paying financial profession and as FAFSA is built from prior year earnings (i.e. tax return)....I am not your usual student entering a full-time professional program. hey....that part is free money, i'm not gonna complain at all.

    thank you!!!
    the package was not huge, but i kind of expected that as i still have outstanding loans from my first undergrad. it was actually a bit more than i expected. anything helps make the cost manageable. i don't really remember my EFC, but i know that it was higher than anticipated, but understandable due to the prior student loans.

    Hello! Congrats to everyone who got accepted to NYU College of Nursing! I just found out I was accepted last week and have to decide by May 1st...I live in California so this will be a huge step for me to move out to the East coast. Someone should start a facebook group so we can meet each other and such.. What is everyone doing about living? On campus housing or are you guys going to try and find a place to live on your own?

    Thanks!

    Alex

    Hey there...Congrats. I'm accepted and moving to NYU from SF. Gonna be a huge change, but we can all handle it. Experience of a lifetime. I am definitely going to try to get into on-campus housing for at least the first academic year. Yes, I am 40, and still considering on-campus housing. I just think it'll be easier than trying to figure out boroughs, neighborhoods, apartments, etc from all the way over here in SF. Hopefully I can get into a private somehow.

    Financial aid info comes a few weeks after your acceptance e-mail. I am still waiting for it.....
    I am still waiting for additional informaiton as well....financial aid, orientation, advising, health requirements, etc....

    I did, however, get an email about setting up my NYU email address though. I wonder if after setting up your NYU email address, the additional information will start rolling in to the official channel of communications.....

    Out of curiosity- does anyone that has already been admitted have any incomplete pre-reqs that you're still working on finishing? I'm curious because on my application, I indicated I would be finishing two classes in the spring semester and two over the summer. I wonder how much of an impact that has on my application review...
    i have two in progress as we speak and one this summer.

    celticcub1_nurse2b - did you receive any confirmation of your acceptance of nyu's offer after you paid the deposit, other than the receipt from the bursar's office?
    nothing yet, other that the receipt from the bursar's office. my assumption is that they wait for payment to process through, then send another batch of email communication about offers accepted and other information.

    i think i had a similar issue to begin with. i think i had to make sure pop-up blocker was turned off first. then i tried again, did the drop down for cr crd and then clicked on make payment (to the right), this took me to another page to enter the credit card information on the nyu bursar office page. I think?

    It really is... I can't believe they don't send them all out at once. I'm having anxiety over this and can't do anything but check my email it's obsessive lol. Seems like torture to me.

    Mairayhans... You applied to pace too right? Which will you chose if accepted to both and why. I really would like to go straight thru and get my masters but I can't at nyu.
    Technically the NYUCN site does say something about rolling admission, which from my understanding meant that it doesn't all happen at one big time, but over period of time based on when applications are submitted/complete and reviewed by the committee........ i know that doesn't help the anxiety.
