    Hi everyone,

    In the future I am looking to apply for the May 2010 program. I will not graduate with my undergraduate degree until May 2010. Have any of you been in this position? Will this hurt my chances of being accepted? I want to know if it is worth rushing to get my prerequisites done now? Please let me know, THANKS!

    I heard from the NJCU's assistant director (The accelerated program in Wall). She said the letters went out today, so we should all know by the end of the week.

    Good luck!

    Well am I glad I found this thread.

    I'm applying for the 2009 May cohort in Wall... still no letter. If they really did go out the 24th we should have them by now. no? I think NJCU's mailing system is a little screwy though because EVERYTHING I sent them took an eternity to get to the Nursing Department. I called last Monday and I was guaranteed that the letters would be out and received within two weeks. So by Friday we should all know. I'm just glad I'm not the only one kept in the dark about admissions.

    So does anyone actually know someone who has gone through this program? I believe the first run was Fall 2007... so the first group to take the NCLEX would have been fall 2008... So I'm a bit curious as too what that pass rate was. Sometimes when I look at other fast track programs this NJCU one looks too good to be true!

    Well if anyone hears ANYTHING at all... please share, I'm starting to have a hard time sleeping at night... and I need to figure out if and when I get to tell my boss I'm quitting!

    By the way, does anyone who applied for the May 2009 Wall Cohort know the actual date that it starts?

    According to the NJCU website, the summer schedule says it starts May 26. The day after Memorial Day.

    I'm in the same boat. I want to give my job the proper notice, so I want to know soon. I'm on pins & needles. Please let us know when you get yours!
