    Hey, is anyone considering NOT going to Visiting day? I was planning on going, but got surprised with a last minute vacay that weekend for my birthday. I would hate to miss out on vital information and a chance to meet my peers, and faculty. Do any current students have any input about visiting day?? Thanks.

    Hey Ya'll Congrats to everyone who got in! I was accepted to MDE with merit based scholarship! I applied to MDE portion only as I was unsure if I wanted to pursue CRNA or PMHNP, and now I am leaning more towards psych. I feel like I should have just applied for DNP now so that I had a chance at the seamless scholarship. Does anyone know if they offer scholarships for people who apply to the DNP right after their MDE? Thanks, cannot wait to meet you all.

    Just received an email yesterday saying my initial review is complete, and the GRE has finally been waived! so excited. Gonna spend the next 2 months working, and then going on a month long family vacation in January, haha. Good luck everyone!

    I did not I still have a big red X where the GRE Score report is. They sent an email saying to ignore the X. But I'm wondering when will review it and get rid of it. Anyways, Good luck to everyone! I'm so excited and nervous to hear back.

    Has anyone done the Timed writing portion? I just finished the video essay, and was super nervous. Wanted to take a break before moving on to the timed writing, does anyone know what the questions are like?

    Hi! Thanks so much for willing to answer our questions. I'm pretty anxious about the price for Columbia, they keep giving us estimates in the 110-130 range. I was wondering if u could share any information regarding how much the "final" price is, as well as info on Financial aid, grants, scholarships from the school, or anything at all regarding mitigating the huge price tag. Thank you SO MUCH!

    Thank You! In regards to online courses, I spoke to someone on the admissions board at Columbia who told me that Portage Learning is a great place to take any prerequisites you still need to fulfill. They're pretty great on pricing too!

    Hey Psych NP! That's awesome to hear that you're applying, and good luck! Would you let me know if they accept the nutrition prerequisite due to your biochem class! That would definitely help me out as well, haha. Thanks!

    Hey! Sorry to bother again, I was wondering if you knew of any scholarships that students applied to in the program. I was looking around but wasn't sure which are right for someone looking to go into a program like this one in particular. Or if you know if Columbia offers any, and about how much? Thanks!

    Yea, I was told it was July 1st but still not open. I emailed and they told me they are anticipating to open the app in the next few weeks.

    interesting. Thanks so much for the info! Another question I have is, do you know what sort of extracurriculars nursing students can be involved in? Like are we able to join clubs, help with research, or be TA's etc. or do U think that the program is too rigorous for us to be able to even do any of that? Thanks.

    Hey! Thanks so much for willing to answer our questions, that is super nice of you! So, My plan is to complete the MDE program and work as an RN for a year or two to gain some experience and think about what I would like to do ( as I am deciding if i want to do anesthesia). I just wanted to make sure that with the master's in nursing that I would be able to work as an RN. I spoke to an RN recently and she told me that having your masters and being an RN doesn't exist, so I was pretty confused about what the actual degree awarded is. Does it let you practice as an RN? Thanks so much!

    NewCna102, Hi! I actually attended two open houses, they have ones online, and some in person. They were both pretty similar, but I wanted to take a look at the building (which was beautiful BTW.) However, I spoke to someone at admissions and they said that you are free to come in ( i forget the days and times specifically, but give them a call), and someone there will be able to take the time to speak with you. I don't think they'll be able to show you around, but they definitely will answer any questions you have. I highly recommend attending an open house and asking questions there, The person was very receptive to questions and did not sugar coat any answers.
