    Hey Rockypooh- I am crossing my fingers for you! And feel free to PM me as well, I feel the same as BerkMom!

    And BerkMom- CONGRATS!! That is wonderful news. Maybe we will meet through this process. And as far as UCSF, it is really hard to say. They are both great programs...but UCSF is cheaper!

    And Star19- I haven't heard back from the lady either! So I dont know when my interview is.

    Good luck to you all!

    Hi Diddle,
    Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed for me, that's really nice of you. I am very happy for you as well as berk, and star. I'll let all of you know as soon as i hear anything, and I Hope we'll continue to exchange good news with each other.

    Berk, and Diddle, :angel2:
    I really appreciate both of you for offering the PM , i'll definitely be pm-ing you both soon.

    P.S Could any of you at least let me know what email address I should be looking out for? I get so many other emails, I'd like to be able to eye it right away. . .

    TAke care and be well.

    Hi BerkeleyMom,
    I applied to UCSF this fall (wasn't granted an interview..) and before I applied I called admissions to ask if I should really put a first and second choice on my application...I was also confused about how that worked. The woman I spoke with said that direct entry applicants shouldn't bother putting a second choice, and she said something like "trust me, we only look at your first choice." So it seems like the opportunity to indicate your second choice might just be for traditional master's applicants...even though the application doesn't say so.
    hi! i recently applied to SMC and NYU for accelerated BSN programs b/c i really want to go to ucsf for my N.P. so i've decided to get the RN first. you can do that too if you've got your heart set on ucsf. i've got a bachelors degree in cell biology from uc berkeley, and though i've got a good gpa and everything i was told that my chances were slim. it's very very difficult to get into that school. so i was told that if i were to get an RN first that my chances would be much better, i might actually get in. experience in the health care field is highly valued by ucsf. i'd also be supprised if i got into merritt b/c i've been told they are extremely selective too. so i may have to go out of state, which sucks. anyway, i just thought you might consider that option of RN first, then ucsf,

    I got my letter today, I'm in! I'm so excited! The envelope was post-dated 02/28/07 and the letter was March 1st. I live in Sacramento, so that gives you an idea of travel time. Hooray! I'm hoping that you are all the same. If not, I'm very sorry and think they need to expand their class. - Chicken LL

    Hey everyone!

    ChickenLLBird--Was it UCSF that you got accepted to? I got accepted too!! YIPEE!! That means we will meet in June! I will be on the lookout for you. Congrats! Were you admitted to the FNP specialty track or another one? I have been admitted to the FNP track.

    And to all you SMC FNPers- I want to wish the best of luck to all of you! We are all going in to an amazing career!

    Take care and keep me posted! And RockyPooh, please feel free to still send me a private message if you want. I would like to help in any way that I can.

    Take care and good luck!

    Hi All! Congrats on everyone's interviews and acceptances!

    I've been reading this thread, but have had yet to post. But I've applied to 3 CA programs - UCSF, USD and UCLA and didn't get into UCSF, waitlisted at USD and still waiting on UCLA. I have gotten into Columbia for the FNP, so that is a great option I have.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi and good luck to all on interviews and those who are making decisions!
