Hi guys! Thought I'd make a forum for NYU's ABSN Program for fall 2020.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Alexis Paige. Currently in California. I received my BA in psych from a private university with a GPA below 3.0. Took pre-reqs in multiple community college while working. Ended up with the same GPA as undergrad 😞

Here's my stats:

Anatomy: C (planning to retake in spring 2020)

Physio: A-

Microbio: C+ (planning to retake in spring 2020)

Chem for health sciences: C+

Nutrition: A

Stats: C

Lifespan dev: B

Volunteer experience at Stanford University. Do you think I have chance with NYU? I feel like my only hope in getting in are the letter of recs + personal essay.

Feel free to comment whatever is on your mind. What are your stats? Where are you from and what other schools will you be applying at? Help a sistah out!

Hey Everyone! 
 

My name is Lea! I’m currently a pre-nursing student in NYC and recently completed my app for the NYU Fall 2020 ABSN program! 

My stats are as follows: 

Anatomy/Physiology1: B 

Anatomy/Physiology2: A 

Chem 1: A-

Developmental Psych: A 

Statistics: A 

Currently taking Micro this semester and Nutrition next semester! 

I work as a patient care representative  at an urgent care in the NYC area and am gearing up to take on a shadowing opportunity of a doctor who works at a major NYC hospital. 

A tidbit of interesting info...I studied opera in High School for 4 years and used to help teach yoga in Bryant park (all of which somehow led me to nursing lol) 🤷🏾‍♀️

Any hoot, I have two rec letters, one from a professor who happens to teach at NYU and one from my manger at the urgent care center I work for.

My mom is also an alum of NYU Silver School and she spent a few years working at NYU Langone. 

Crossing my fingers that I’m in some capacity what NYU is looking for, but I guess we’ll all find out soon! 
 

Sending loads of good luck to everyone!!!! 🤞🏾

@someoneacceptme lol i’m down to pay tuition. i’ve been trying to get into a nursing program. last year i applied to one entry level masters program (bad idea. should’ve applied to more) and got waitlisted 

i feel like paying tuition isn’t as bad bc we’ll earn it back once we start working.

I'm from nyc but I live in pennsylvania now and go to school here. About an hour and 15minutes away from ny and I'm used to it so nyu wouldn't be a big transition for me. I just really love their program and the campus. 

I've also heard that they look at applications hollistically. Apparently they take in like 200 students so that's good. That tuition tho!
