    DoGoodThenGo: I can't believe I forgot CMSV! Can you tell us more about your experience?

    Side note: I've never heard a bad thing about the college, except that their tuition is high (welcome to the club). I also hear you guys have a great campus.

    i got into nyu..supposed to start next month in accelerated program. i really wanted to do CUNY downstate & finish at NYU for advanced degree but wasn't going to have pre-reqs in time and didn't want to wait. (in case dind't get it, and because it starts in june of next year). now i'm rethinking it in time crunch. do any of you know how hard it is to get in downstate? i'm thinking it may actually be more difficult than nyu bc of inexpensive price. ?? any help or info would be great.

    SUNY Downstate is definitely harder to get into than NYU. SUNY had like 400 applications this past year for 50 spots I heard. It was also my first choice because it was accelerated and really inexpensive, but I didn't get in. I did get into NYU and am starting this fall. NYU has a much larger class size to accomodate more students, but has the private school price tag which a lot of students avoid. From the people I spoke with that were accepted to SUNY, i found that they were mostly older students (not just a few years out of college) who had a ton of experience in healthcare one way or another.

    Sorry, this post is late, I just saw this thread.

    I can add Concordia College in Bronxville, NY to this list... They have started a 2nd degree BSN program in fall 2008, and I got accepted for fall 2009. I'll be starting in < 2 weeks so I can't speak much on the clinical/class aspects of it, but I have spoken to current students and they really love the program. They've stated the professors are very helpful and the clinicals have been a great learning experience. The program is 15 months, begins each fall, is around $30,000 for the entire program, and they seem to be pretty lenient with financial aid. No admission testing like the MAT or GRE besides a written exam provided by the school. You need a 3.2 undergrad GPA and B or higher in prereqs. Also, interview with the Dean, she seemed very knowledgeable and keen on bringing out the best in the students... The campus is nice as well. I believe they are becoming more competitive to get into as more people are hearing about the program... The first class had only 20 students but my class will have 40 students lol. From my understanding, 40 is the max.

    Hope this helps anyone interested, and I can always post about the program itself once I begin if anyone would like. Best of luck to everyone!
