    Anyone hear any news on when admission decisions will be mailed out?

    I called the admissions office last week because they had a question about my pre-reqs and the (really nice!) woman who answered the phone told me that my application was being reviewed and that I should hear the week of Feb. 11th. I submitted the application only a few days before the due date and didn't get my assorted transcripts/recommendation letters in until the day of, so people who submitted theirs earlier should hear earlier, theoretically... Good luck!

    That's awesome news I'm surprised they were able to turn around the decisions so quickly!

    Thank you!
    I can't send private messages yet but I heard from Simmons on Wednesday, so their decisions must have gone out this week. Good luck everyone!

    I started this thread and ended up not applying to Simmons. Just a FYI

    Why did you choose not to apply? Where else did you apply (get accepted)?
  14. by   rainkissedleaves
    I applied to very few schools. Only 4 so far:

    In order of preference:
    1)UIC (deadline is march 1)
    2) UCSF
    3) Marquette (accepted)
    4) western university of health sciences (withdrew my application because I got into Marquette).

    I ended up not applying to Simmons because I didn't particularly find commonalities with the program and my career path/my learning style. I'm sure it's a great program but from my research it just didn't match my interests anymore. In addition, I wasn't ready to make a move to Boston right now. I am a SF native and Boston is just a little too far now that I think about it
