NYU Accelerated BSN Fall 2010

Posted

Hi everyone!

I just received my acceptance letter to NYU's Accelerated BSN program for Fall 2010. I just wanted to reach out to other accepted students so I thought I'd start a thread! I haven't decided whether or not to accept the offer because of $, relocation, and other things. I have so many questions that I don't know where to start but feel free to share your thoughts!

Wow there are alot of nyu threads now lol. I received an acceptance letter today too!

I'm preparing to apply to Accelerated BSN programs, and it would be great to know what accepted students GPA is.

Congrats to all Accepted Future RNs!!

me too! very excited, and i will definitely be attending :) i'm from the bronx so relocating won't be an issue for me, but yeah it is def pretty expensive =/ that's the drawback, but i'm just staying positive and saying it will be well worth it! hope to see you guys there!

that's the attitude i have about it! i was accepted to a few other schools, but i wouldn't be able to live with myself if i turned down nyu. i'd always wonder "what if i went there?" especially after i watched that little video on the website a million times, and read the handbook and bulletin backwards and forwards! lol i'll definitely be attending too! now i'm just trying to figure out where i'll live since i'll be relocating from texas.

my overall gpa was a 3.3 from my previous undergrad. i was a biology major in the honors program. my pre-req gpa was 3.8. wouldn't have considered myself a shoe in or anything...however, i'm super excited nonetheless!!! good luck applying!

Congrats! I applied as a traditional transfer student and it seems that the only students receiving their acceptance letters are accelerated nursing applicants.. maybe that is a good sign for me?

lol yeah thats a big move but it'll be exciting i'm sure! i was thinking about living there, but i figured i'll already be building up so much debt just with tuition lol and it wouldn't be worth it since i already live just a pretty quick train ride away. it would be exciting to live in manhattan for a little while though, i love it there & have always wanted to lol so you're def lucky!

anyone heard anything yet about when we'll receive financial aid information?

They conveniently deliver the financial aid information after you dish out your $500-$800 deposit... which is BS but they're all just trying to get your money anyways. I haven't decided whether or not I'll accept the offer, but seriously, who says "no" to NYU? I think I might regret it forever but then I might also regret the $90,000 in debt. I got accepted to a local college in Massachusetts (Curry College) which only has 32 students. It's very personal and I think that might be what I need. I've heard a lot of varying opinions about NYU's Accelerated BSN since the program was only established a couple years ago. I think the Class of 2012 would be the 4th or 5th cohort so they're still trying to work out the kinks. I have totally mixed feelings about it and I wish they'd give me more than 2 weeks to make up my mind!!!

Ahhhhhh!

wow didn't realize that you had to pay to get it lol! i think i just expected it to come separately, and soon... i definitely understand how you feel. i actually was accepted to Concordia - NY whose program is even newer than NYU (and is currently in the works of getting accreditation so nyu is looking way more established right now). i was accepted to Loyola-Chicago too, whose program has been around for a while, however, i can't see myself saying no to nyu! lol. good luck deciding :)

Congrats!!! Genuine, I've noticed you received your letter yesterday and you're from Texas, which means...I'll probably hear bad news since I live around New York and seeing as to how you got your letter, but I haven't heard anything yet is pretty much another bad sign for me... May I ask what year you've graduated? Maybe they are still reviewing my app. until after graduation--which will be in May of this year. I'm so frustrated with myself.

have u confirmed with them that your application was complete? i saw on another thread that some people who hadn't heard yet called and found out there were issues with their transcripts/ their applications weren't complete and that's why they hadn't heard anything yet. i'd call them, just to be sure about that. I graduated May 2009, however i'm finishing A&P 2 right now because the course i took in my undergrad wouldn't suffice for their requirements. for some reason, i dont think they have sent out all the letters yet so don't count it as a loss! someone on another thread found out she was accepted over the phone, however, they told her she wouldn't receive her letter for a week or two. maybe they send them out in batches? good luck waiting!

fireflies,

i really do suggest calling them to check out your app status as genu9ine says. in my case, there was some confusion about one of my transcripts and luckily i did call and was able to sort it out over the phone this past monday. i then called back today was told i was accepted!! this small issue was holding up my application review and b/c they are so overwhelmed they have only sent out acceptances for those of us that have "complete" applications. in my case i was confident my app was complete, but when i called i was told something different. so this could be the issue in your case. i do not think you have anything to worry about. hang in there. check out my post here: https://allnurses.com/ny-nursing-programs/nyu-accel-bsn-437729-page21.html (hopefully this will offer you some piece of mind)

good luck to you and keep us posted!!

cheers, a

Thank you guys so much! It's so comforting to hear all your motivational words and advice! I hope I can attend nursing school with all of you this fall.

Hello! I too just heard back from NYU two days ago. I live in California. I'm still waiting to hear back from a school in the Bay Area, but it honestly doesn't have the prestige that NYU has. Its a tough decision because I'll be getting married shortly before the program starts, and it doesn't seem like my new husband will be able to relocate with me right away. So I'm trying to decide if I should just stay in the Bay Area and go to a less prestigious school (but equally connected in the Bay Area) or relocate alone and go to NYU. It's such a hard decision - especially since I want to continue with a masters eventually.

Have any of you heard how/if where you got your BSN will influence your acceptance to a high ranked masters program?

hi norcalgal,

i'm in sf! where are you located? and i'll be attending NYU in the fall.. but i just wanted to let you know that my sister received her first bachelors in biology from the univ of CO, then went on to san diego state univ. to get another bachelors in nursing, which is a good school and i know she was very well prepared, but it definitely doesn't have the prestige of a school like NYU. she worked at SF general in the ER for a few years and has now been accepted to Univ of Washington and UCSF's Adult NP programs (number 1 and 2 ranked in the nation)!! she's a wonderful nurse and worked at a great teaching hospital, but i do not think it carries much weight where you attended nursing school as long as you do well (and aren't getting your bsn online or anything). not trying to deter you from nyu b/c i myself wouldn't want to be anywhere else, but i think whatever choice you make will not affect your chances of attending a high ranked masters program. just my 2 cents.

It's good to hear that there are some other Cali folks who were accepted into the accelerated BSN program (I'll be coming from San Diego) ! I've been weighing my decisions between a school in San Fran and NYU and decided I'm definitely going to head to NYU. The San Fran program was an entry level master's, however, I'm pretty sure you have the option to apply to NYU's entry BSN/MSN program after the first semester. I also like that NYU is 15 months. And, who can pass up the opportunity to live Manhattan?

To everyone else attending, are you planning on doing student housing or searching for a place in New York?
