I wanted to start a thread so that everyone who has officially been accepted into Mercer's Nursing Program (GA Baptist College of Nursing) this Fall (Fall 2011) could meet and get to know each other. My name is Lindsay McKnight. I was accepted back in February and am so excited to start this fall. I recently graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science in Allied Health and will be moving to GA in July. My family lives there so I'm not too worried about the move, but I can't wait to settle in and meet everyone! I'm still working on submitting all of the paperwork needed (financial aid, immunization records, etc.) and am looking online everyday for the orientation dates but can't seem to find them. I contacted someone in Admissions and she said they were late on getting them posted, so hopefully we'll find out sometime soon when orientation is going to be! If anyone has any advice as to where they are living, I'd really appreciate it. I plan on flying out to GA in the next few weeks to apt hunt because looking online just isn't good enough. Hope to meet everyone soon! :)

Hi, Lindsay!!

I will be attending Mercer's nursing program in the fall too!! Congrats on your acceptance! I am also anxious to meet all my fellow classmates. I actually received an e-mail today that gave us 2 choices of orientation times. We can either attend orientation on July 19 or August 9. I think I will attend on July 19. I live in Lawrenceville Ga which is about a 30 to 40 min. drive to the campus. Good luck with your move. I am so excited to get started. I am currently finishing my spring quarter of classes. I will finish those ini the next 2 weeks. I am also trying to tackle all of the forms and records they need this summer. I have already turned in my FAFSA form and my Mercer financial aid form. I'm hoping I will qualify for scholarships and grants. Have you received any money yet? I hope other classmates will post so we can get to know each other. See you this summer!

Hey everyone! I just got my acceptance letter yesterday! I am soooo excited to meet everyone. I just emailed and am hoping to attend orientation July 19th as well. I live in Jacksonville, Florida so I am making quite a move. If anyone has any advice on places to live please let me know. =)

Can't wait to meet everyone. I am hoping to attend the July 19th orientation as well! Erin, I am moving from Texas so I'm right there with you. I flew out to Atlanta last weekend to apt shop but haven't found a place yet. I'm moving to GA on June 25th (staying with my Mom about 1 1/2 hours South of Atlanta) so hopefully I'll be able to find a place before August. I've been looking in the Virgina Highlands area and really like it, but we'll see. How much I can spend on rent all depends on how much money I get from loans.... ugh, stressful! When are you looking at moving out there? Hope to see you at orientation!

I need to drive to Atlanta to look at apartments because looking online is no help. Lindsay, I am hoping to move out there in early August. I did check on campus housing but its so expensive so I'm hoping that I will be able to find an apartment close thats not too expensive. I can't wait for orientation and to meet everyone!:)

All you guys looking for a place I suggest checking out a place called promove, it may save you some time. They give you a packet of apartments you are looking for and it's free. The key is you have to go to the one in the area your looking for in atl. So check out http://www.promove.com or google then amd give them a call.

Oh my gosh! I got in, too! I just heard on Friday... I still haven't gotten my actual letter in the mail yet, so I'm dying to know what's in it. @Erin- I live in Jax, too! PM if you want to chat.

So, anyone want to give me a tipoff on what's in the package? When do you hear about financial aid?

So excited!!!!
