MGH Direct Entry Waitlist 2016

Posted

Hi everyone,

I just heard back from the MGH direct entry NP program and I got on the waitlist. I am wondering if anyone has had experience on the waitlist for this program before? Did you get an offer? I am also waiting to hear back from the Regis Direct Entry MS nursing program (which awards both a BS is nursing and a MS). I hate this waiting game! Anyone have experience with Regis as well?!

Also: any idea when those that did get accepted to MGH direct entry nursing have for their deadline to accept?

Thanks !!! :)

Hi Livvi93,

The waitlist is such a limbo! Did you apply to any other programs? I am wondering when I will hear back from Regis as well

I applied to Boston college, yale, and northeastern as well. Bc and Yale were denials and I'm still waiting for northeasterns decision. It's very nerve wracking!!

I got waitlisted for MGH too and got an email last night from Regis to interview next week. So I'm assuming they still haven't finalized decisions. What tracks did you guys apply to? I applied to psych

Thanks! Since we all got waitlisted just wondering what everyone's background is?

I graduated from UMass Amherst with a 3.2 GPA in 2014 with a BS in Animal Science and minor in Wildlife Conservation. Currently my pre-req GPA is a 3.7 and I'm finishing up 2 classes at BHCC now.

I have a lot of clinical background, but with animals :/. I currently volunteer at MGH in the Emergency Room, mostly in APS. I also used to work in a counseling center, as an RA ,and I travel a lot to volunteer. I've gone to Thailand for wildlife courses and to volunteer in the mountains and last year I lived in South Africa to research a troop of baboons for a study thru Duke University. Additionally, I did 2 years of cognitive research thru the psych department at UMass. Currently I'm a vet tech!

I have a BS in child development and family relations GPA 3.3. Graduated this past December. I have no medical experience! You guys sound way more qualified! Haha. I hope it doesn't make me look too bad!

I was denied by Northeastern but was told my application "showed strength" and should have my application reviewed for the ABSN program for either the summer or fall start. Uh. I really want a spot at MGH for the direct entry!!

Sorry to hear that. Did they call you or send you a letter?
