Accepted (Yay!). But now I am so confused. I went through hell to get CAS everything as I attended a number of schools for my other degrees and pre-reqs. And now the email from MGH says that they need official transcripts from all schools attended and degree verification. What the heck?! I thought CAS did that!

Hi! MGH IHP ABSN alumna here

I just finished the program. No, the BSN students don't have a white coat ceremony. The NP students do!

and if anyone has questions, feel free to PM me or ask here.

Hi, all! Just found this feed, so I am late to this party. Did your decisions come directly from MGH email, or through NursingCAS? I received nothing last week when you all reported that you received your decisions, but was notified today that I am on a waitlist. Just curious how you were notified. Seems odd that mine came late. Thanks, and congrats to everyone!

Did you request transcripts from all of the schools that you attended? If I remember correctly, on NursingCAS there was a sheet for each school that I printed out and faxed requesting my official transcripts be sent to NursingCAS. That was in addition to manually adding each course into the system.

Kastio - It is odd that you didn't hear from them until today. I thought they sent out all of the decision e-mails at once! Congrats on the waitlist! I hope you get a spot. :)

Did anyone get accepted into this program with a 3.0/3.1 GPA? I'm wondering if I should apply. I've heard this program is really hard to get into. However, I did recently graduate from UCONN with a Biology degree, so I don't know if they'll take that into account when looking at my lower gpa.
