    Congratulations to you!!

    I've been accepted too! I'm still applying to UIC's GEP program, but I'm 90% sure that I'll be at Loyola. I'm so excited! Isn't it great that we'll be nurses by May of next year? Crazy!

    hi i just got accepted too! very exciting! however, i'm a little concerned about the cost. what do you all think about the tuition and room/board expenses? I'm from out of state so no living at home for me. what made you decide on loyola?

    pbtech--Loyola seems expensive, but remember that it's only 12.5 months. If you take into account a year of lost work income by going to a traditional program, Loyola is actually cheaper than the public university UIC. It's also about the same as Rush University. I'd say it's about average for Chicago. Chicago's a little expensive, but the salaries are higher. If you work here for a couple of years after you get out of school, it should even out. Also, any money you spend is an investment in your future. You could pay the same for a car and have nothing to show for it in 10 years, whereas an education is invaluable the rest of your life!

    Loyola is expensive, but it is a great school, and we'll be done in 12.5 months. I will also need to take out loans to cover my living expenses, as I will continue to live on my own, not on campus. So, I am looking at being in a good deal of debt, but hopefully will get some sort of tuition reimbursement once I am finally out in the workforce, which will hopefully help out quite a bit.

    I just got accepted to Loyola's ABSN too! I cannot wait to start- anyone know just how intense the summer semester is supposed to be?

    I just got my letter yesterday!!! I am still deciding what school I want to attend...but I am leaning towards Loyola, now knowing I was accepted. I am worried about the intensity....but I can do it!!

    SmilingGirl- you can search for the ABSN curriculum plan on their shows all the courses we take in each semester/quarter...that gives us some idea

    Again, congratulations to everyone who got accepted. what are everyone's living situations or plans? I have two friends who live in chicago and are willing to share their 2 bedroom 1 bath apt and possibly me just crash there for a really long time :P but i'm afraid it might be too cramped after a while. does anybody need a roomate or know some really cheap apartments? i'm looking for some inexpensive alternatives to living on campus.

    I just got orientation info today in the mail. Looks like ABSN students can get health insurance through the school. Anybody know about dental insurance?
