    Agreed with chanzer, your credentials sound just fine. With all the idiots in my class it seems like anyone can get into this program. If you want to double check though, contact the admissions office and ask them if your pre-req grades are sufficient.

    To klinden1- I don't want to give you false hope but I got in spring 2011 and application was nowhere as competitive as yours. Just one thing: apply early. Do your app now and appt the first day possible for priority deadline

    I just graduated from NYU's accelerated program. Honestly, i dont think it is very difficult to get in. I know a few of my classmates mentioned to me they had below a 3.0gpa when they applied.

    It's a great school for nursing if you want to get experience in the major hospitals. Most of the professors are not very good, you have to teach yourself a lot of the material. You can get the same or better training and education for a lot cheaper else where...

    Hi everyone! I applied to NYU's spring 2012 accelerated program.... i'm really anxious to hear about everyone's progress! Went to Vanderbilt...3.2 undergrad... 4.0 in all prereqs ... super excited to move to NYC!

    I just heard back from Pace's spring 2012 CDP 1 year program and i have been accepted to that. NYU is my other choice.. does anyone have any advice about that? I would prefer NYU and have definitely heard better things about their program. Keep me posted guys

    applying fall 2012...3.9 from Berkeley (history), 4.0 in all pre-reqs, would it be okay to take dev psych online ( I know they strongly discourage online courses)? Also do they emphasize nursing experience because I have zero! Has anyone heard of stats of how many people apply/ get in? How early can I put in an fall app?

    I have heard of all classes that they prefer you take the Developmental Psych class online however I am taking Stats online because it just fit better with my schedule. I don't think they necessarily emphasize nursing experience as much as they want to feel your desire to become a nurse, but I have heard they do look at candidates more fondly who have had some type of medical setting experience. As to what I've heard the acceptance rate is about 45% of the students who apply.

    Thanks!

    At one of their September open houses, they said that they accept ~35%.
