    Hey! Just got a letter of acceptance from FIU. Have you thought anymore on your decision? I am struggling between the two as well. Everyone is saying the 40k isn't worth it, but that simulation hospital seemed like a great learning environment. Very hard to decide right now

    I'm on the same boat. I work with many nurses and they all have said the 40k is not worth it for a BSN. Many have told me that it may make more sense to go to UM for a Master's program since it is more specific to your specialty. But a BSN is very generalized. In addition, both programs are exactly the same. You are just paying for the fact that's a prestigious private school. FIU also has a simulation lab. Not sure if it's as nice as UM's but it's there.

    I think I've made my decision to go to FIU. Trying to figure out the best way to let UM know. I PMed you with my e-mail address if you want to communicate directly. I'd love to get to know everyone before we start, maybe through a Facebook group. Have you seen or heard from anyone else who was accepted?

    It's not over yet! There are other people trying to make the decision between one school and another. I wouldn't give up hope! Fingers crossed for you!

    I also decided to go to FIU. I'm sad about letting UM go but I think it's the best choice in terms of costs. And it is a very good program. I'm trying to figure out how to let UM know too. I had to pay their deposit...I'll send you my email too! I know some other students who got in as well. Also someone that was in the same situation with UM.
