    Well I was accepted to LIU (Long Island University) for thier 2 year program, so if I don't get in then I'm going there.... I went to college in NY so i don't mind going back to school there

    so njcu is your number one? are those the only two schools you applied to?
  3. by   2011gradbsn
    Yes its my number one... I applied to stony brook as well (SUNY) but was wait-listed. Because I already have a college degree I don't want to wait yet another year to apply to NJCU since it would turn out to be the same to go to a 2 year program if I don't get in...... interestingly enough, when I first called to ask about the program I was told that if I had the option to go to either a 1 or 2 year school I should probably go to the 2 year bc i'd have more time to learn and retain the material being taught.... I still am going for NJCU though so we'll see next week.

    They did, but only because I'd have more time to process the info.... we all know doing a 1year program will be memorization and cramming, so I guess they were just being neutral and honest. Good luck to everyone and I hope we all find out next week!!!
  6. by   Dominicano0190 number ones are UMDNJ or let's see! good luck!

    I wanted to apply to UMDNJ, but when I spoke to them I was told if I didn't have a 3.0 in undergrad (regardless of my pre-reqs or grades after graduating) I wouldn't even be looked at....... sucks so I really hope I get into NJCU, otherwise it'll be 2 years for me..... on the bright side though if I do the 2 years I'll have the summer inbetween of to work somewhere as an extern and hopefully make connections... I don't know I just hope these decisons are nalied out next week.... I also forgot I appleid to Drexel and got in, but its way to expensive for me to go.....

    I just graduated from NJCU's accelerated BSN program (Wall campus). It's not the best, but it is the quickest/cheapest in NJ. When I was applying I was torn btwn NJCU and UMDNJ. Ultimately, I was told that UMDNJ's accreditation has been put on probation (or something to that effect) because of a low NCLEX-RN pass rate for their graduates. If you are interested in UMDNJ, you should call and look into that before you apply.

    ...Just a thought...
