    at the current moment i'm leaning towards whichever one accepts me!

    In all honesty, if i get accepted to yale--that's the one. columbia has not been very helpful, and since the programs are similar i figure what the heck, ya know?
    which way are you leaning?

    I'm leaning more towards Columbia (maybe because I already know that I got in). :chuckle

    I applied for the Anesthesia program at Columbia and the FNP program at Yale. I am almost 100% sure that I would rather do Anesthesia....

    What a life altering decision!!

    Wow KrystellMarie! It never occured to me that anyone would apply for different program specialties! LOL Those are soooo different! What do you like or dislike about each one? I would guess Columbia would probably make sense for you since if you don't like the Anes. program you could probably switch to FNP, but Yale doesn't have a Anes. program so you would be "stuck" in FNP...

    I hope we get calls tomorrow.......

    yes, they are very different. i have always dreamed of going the crna route, but didn't really think that i would have the opportunity. i want to do a direct-entry program because i am extremely motivated and know that i want to become an advanced practitioner. i was surprised to find out that columbia allows us to apply to the crna track directly, i haven't come across any others like that. i think that i would really enjoy yale and becoming a fnp also. it is tough because we have to choose before we really have a chance to check out different pathways...

    bics -
    cheers right back at ya!! :biere: (what are we singing and who passes out?)

    do you think yale will call tomorrow??
    good luck to you both!!!

    Yay Congrats Krystell and bics!! I just found out I was accepted to Columbia too!! Bics do you think you're going to go?? I still haven't heard from Yale... but I think it's going to come down to johns hopkins and columbia for me. I'm having Such a hard time with this and I have to decide SO soon. Any advice??

    Congrats again. Maybe I'll see you in May!

    Congrats mvd737!!! I have no idea now that i have that lovely little acceptance from Columbia in my hand. I feel like I know nothing about Columbia due to the fact that they don't conduct interviews and have not really answered any of my questions. If y'all choose Columbia, what would be your reasons?

    good luck lovingpecola!

    I am considering Columbia because I heard that the financial aid is better than Yale??? It's so hard to get concrete information without actually going to the school...I'm trying to decide if I am going to the accepted students day. I know that this is the only way to really get to know the school and the people, but I also don't want to waste the $600 it would cost me to visit the school, just to come home and choose Yale...and then pay out ANOTHER $600 for their acceptance fee!

    Decisions, decisions...of course it really isn't a decision unless I get into Yale...so I will try not to put the cart before the horse...
