    Hi everyone! I just found this thread, as I have also been accepted to Upenn. Does anyone know when the financial aid packages are being sent out? I turned in all my info by the Dec 15th deadline, so I'm hoping I will hear back soon. I have already put down a deposit on a school (to hold my spot), but still waiting to hear back from 3 schools and their financial aid packages. I can't fully accept an offer until I know what I will be paying.
    Hey Annie,
    I can't remember the date exactly but I'm pretty sure we will have our financial aid packages in about two weeks. I know it will def be before March 20th when we have to make a final decision. But check that email they sent earlier this week for a specific date!

    Hi all!

    First of all Congrats to everyone who has been admitted! I'm a prospective student looking to apply after I finish my remaining pre-reqs this summer.

    Would any of you be so kind to share your stats in terms of your GPA, degree you were awarded in undergrad, and whether you had any prior health related experience prior to applying?

    The reason why I'm asking and posting on this thread is because I would like to have a sense what the school is looking for.

    I have a 3.8 GPA and received my B.S. in Psychology. I've been working as a paralegal for the last two years and although my grades seem ok..I'm afraid I won't be at par with future applicants who graduated with science degrees and had health/ science related work experiences.

    Any insight would truly truly be appreciated! Please PM me or post here if you can!
    Again CONGRATS to everyone who has been accepted!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Were you ever able to acquire a snapshot of accepted BS MSN students? I'm looking to apply next year to the accelerated program and I'd love to know where I stand

    Any help would be wonderful
