nice seeing you again, you've posted to my previous thread "the cuny nursing school survey" - so i knew we are in the same boat and it is nice to have someone with similar situations to share their views with.
yeah i was going to apply to cuny, downstate and stony only but thank god i came across allnurses and found out so much more! basically stony and hunter was out of my list after i read this site; stony is hard to get into, doesn't accept applications already (i was gonna go for the summer program) back in october when i wanted to apply; hunter has to be enrolled in beforehand, 2 chems, and also makes your life in hell even if you are in the program (according to one of my rn friend from another cuny school), pace does not have a good nursing program (i've heard at least 3 person saying that; but anyway that's not the primary reason why i didn't apply there...), downstate like i've posted in this thread i really dun like the environment also i've pasted the deadline already....i am not even thinking about columbia since it's toooo expensive for a bsn....i learn that adelphi and liu has regular bsn from allnurses so i applied as soon as i can as a back up plan just incase i dun get into nyu or cuny.
actually like a lot of people have said, taking out loans for school is actually considered a good loan but i am just worrying that what if i dun make it half way thru?
this thought just scares me and makes me just want to go to cuny....but 2 years adn vs. 15 months bsn i really rather just go for the bsn to get it over and done with...but the money...sigh....:icon_roll
anyway, i am sorry i've gone discrete....:selfbonk: to answer your question (btw, it is not a stupid question, u should have seen some of mine stupid question to the admission office!!) since i am only a non-degree student in citytech and having only been there for 1 semester taking my pre-req, i really couldn't get any professors to write me a decent recommendation letters; so i ended up asking my boss, which is a doctor since i works in a medical office, and to an rn.
-when you applied to all those different programs did you ask your professors/supervisors to send out multiple letters of recommendation (one to each school)?
-à well, yes, duh! :wink2: j/k!!! oh just so that you know since i've made up my mind on about 4 school, i only need recommendation letters for nyu; cuny doesn't need them, liu did not require it, and adelphi gave you an option to sent one letter in but not mandatory. i only ask one of them to send out a same letter to adelphi, and like i said since it's not mandatory for adelphi's regular bsn program to submit recommendation letters they dun have a specific form for that and so it's just the same letter but addressed to this school.
-and did they provide copies of the same letter addressed to each school, or did they fill out those forms provided by the admissions office?
--à yeah i gave them the forms from nyu, have them fill out the demo part and have them wrote the letter separately on another piece of paper (because on the form it said they could write it on the form or type it on another piece of paper).
hey echinacea, if you want to get into nyu's fall '06 semester the dead line is march, i know it seems far from now but before you know it, march will be here soon just like when i started to apply to schools in october and boom it's january already and it doesn't seem too long ago too!
so act now because you also need to write a good essay and make times for your professor/supervisor to write up their letters. so how many schools have you apply to so far? and did you made up your mind yet about going to cuny or into the accelerated program?
wow i wrote enough :typing , if you have any more questions, feel free to pm me so i could get into details more (my god i wrote too much, i think i was gonna take up this whole page!) and so good luck with everything!
