    Hey Kelzy! I can't PM yet, but I have a question for you about the summer externship. Did you have to send them your transcript from your previous degree as well? or was the NYU transcript for nursing good enough? I'm just concerned because I have a "C" in one of my science course (not a prereq) from my previous college that I went to.

    I don't remember if I had to send all of my transcripts or just my NYU one... either way, I had a C in my previous undergrad (I think it was an unrequired science class as well) and I still got offered the externship. I think they're mostly concerned with your nursing classes and your current GPA so I wouldn't worry too much.

    Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions!

    I got accepted into both ursing school at NYU and Stony Brook(2yr program) today!!

    I was in alternative status for one yr program on january.

    after I got acceptance letter from SBU, I called them if there is still hope to

    get into one yr program..they said yeahhhh even if I got into two yr program.

    so...if I can get into one yr at SBU, I will probably go there instead of NYU. if not, I will go NYU

    I dont want to study 2yr..I know only 5month difference..and too expensive for NYU..

    Welll , good luck guys~

    did u receive an acceptance letter from nyu's program? i know that a couple of other people on the forum found out they were accepted via phone (and someone on email). I'm anxiously waiting to hear from them... the wait is unbearable.

    I received my acceptance package yesterday via snail mail. I haven't decided whether or not I will be accepting yet. They did offer me studenth housing, are there any Accelerated students who are living in the NYU housing? I just have no idea what to expect from their dorms!

    Great News Christina123 - Congrats!

    Did you apply to other schools? a lot of people are saying that NYU wants to get decisions out when they know one is applying to competing schools so the individ. can make a decision. I made the mistake by stating in my essay that I am only interested in the NYU program. Dont know if that's good or not.

    Thanks.

    if anything i think it shows them you REALLY want to go there so much that you really didn't look anywhere else! i'd think they'd be more interested in people like that because they know that if you're accepted, you'll go! lol.

    i received an acceptance letter yesterday too!

    i talked to some people via facebook who are in the accelerated program staying in housing. they say that they try to put accelerated nursing students together. one girl staying in one of the dorms said her whole floor is students from the accelerated nursing program. so some students in the program do pursue housing, but most don't. i'm actually looking into it.

    MJM... I wouldn't overthink it. Admissions is just a game but don't get caught up in the fine details. Universities and colleges know most students will apply to other schools, whether or not they say it on their applications. Admissions teams just like to know who they're being compared to. It doesn't make a difference to them and they're not going to spend the time to check. When you're one of 4,000 applicants, they're not going to think "awh, NYU is the only school he/she is applying to, maybe we should accept him/her!" You're either going to be what they're looking for or you're not. Unless you're an Olsen twin, you're just grouped into two groups: qualified/unqualified. It's a harsh process and every university is so different, there's no way to predict if you'll line up with what they want. For example, I was waitlisted at my safety and accepted at my two reach schools (one of which I didn't meet the grade requirement). You just never know until you apply!!!

    Hi Genu9ine,

    Just curious, did you file your app exactly by the priority deadline. Everything was completed, for me, around March 10th (wk after priority deadline). Wondering if I'm in the second batch of decisions. Also, just wondering if mailing were received early to those on the East Coast side. Are you coming fr. the East or West Coast? I guess that's why NYU Admissions recommended to stay away fr. forums, you get ultra-curios of those who got accepted. Ha-ha.

    Congratulations to all for early acceptances!

    Hey! I actually had my app complete in December lol. So I'm not sure when they started looking at apps but you could be in the next batch?! They may have already made a decision and just haven't sent u a letter yet! It seems I got my letter 1 day later than some ppl in ny state. So maybe they sent mine earlier than they sent theirs or did priority or something cuz I live in Texas.

    Thank you so much for the info. I'm getting a little anxious but I know if it's meant to be, it's meant to be!

    Did all of you who have received a letter in the mail call to check when you'd be getting a response? I called in march to make sure they had all of my application materials and they said they did. Do you think I should call to check the status of my application?
