    NYU ABSN fall 2019

    Hey All - I'm currently at NYU ABSN in my first "sequence"; feel free to DM me / post questions here and I will be happy to share my opinion. Good luck to y'all!

    You need to take it to matriculate; you can apply without it but must finish it but he time school starts.

    I'm sorry to hear that you did not get in. The undergrad school does not have an appeals process (according to more research and various posts about NYU undergrad hopefuls that also wanted to appeal). That doesn't mean that Rory Meyers wouldn't entertain such an attempt. I would say you should contact the admissions office directly. As for the reason to appeal - if you feel that is the next step, then go for it. I think anyone who is passionate about a given school, and feels as though their story wasn't heard, should always utilize all their options and resources. It wouldn't hurt to at least inquire, in my opinion.

    I did a little "research" (read: Googling) and what I found was that you can file for an appeal if: 1. There have been changes to your resume, scores, etc., or there are large, positive changes. So, any revisions that would change the rigor of your application, and 2. There is a clerical error in your application, such as a misprint on a transcript. There were several reasons listed that were considered "unacceptable" for filing an appeal, including 1) feeling the decision is incorrect or unfair, 2) feeling like your grades were good enough, 3) you've gotten in to other, similar programs, 4) you know people who have gotten in and that have similar credentials as yourself, etc., Of course, every school is different, but these seemed to be the common theme that came across when I looked into it. NYU in general (undergrad) does not really entertain appeals: We do not have an appeal process of any kind and we cannot reconsider your application before May 1. If we are ultimately not able to offer you admission after May 1, you can certainly re-apply for admission as a transfer candidate to our campus in New York, should you matriculate elsewhere next fall, but we cannot reconsider your application until then and we cannot evaluate any new credentials or materials at this time. The appeal processes I found for NYU involved current students and revolved around contesting grades, leaves of absences, dismissals, etc.,

    Excuse my ignorance, is this a common thing to do? Have people been successful doing so? I only ask because I've not heard of doing so, though I fully support the action should you feel it is the next course of action. Good luck!

    Holiday Bonus

    I've worked in three hospitals in different states in different positions (ER Paramedic, Unit Coordinator, and Program Manager) and have never received a holiday bonus. At my most recent hospital I was given a hush-hush half a day off, which honestly was a ridiculous thing to encourage since the person who gave it left early everyday and had himself received a massive holiday bonus (multiple thousands; as manager I was privy to his salary and bonuses). The only bonus I have ever received in my "working career" was a $40 Amazon gift card. I was 21 working as an English teacher, and I was given it only because I was a "top performer". 80% of the staff didn't get anything but a candy cane. All my friends in finance receive bonuses, but the few I have in medical (save for a veterinarian) do not receive anything.

    These are the ones listed by NYU: Scholarships | NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing There are more out there but I haven't really looked beyond that. I have a small scholarship specific to my field, but I only knew about it because it was insanely niche (Continuing Ed for Disaster Managers). Good luck!

    You should fill out a FAFSA to increase your chances at getting a scholarship.

    FAFSA often rewards full amount of tuition + living stipend. Be forewarned, you will likely pay about twice as much as your original tuition due to interest.

    There's no information re: 2017/2018 for those accepted in late December, though it doesn't mean no one was. However, in 2016 people heard back well into the end of December. I believe at least one did get in. I hope your wait ends soon.

    It may be worth it to check in and let them know you have other decisions to make. NYU extended the deadline for health forms, which makes me believe they understand some people are hearing back too late to adhere to their original deadlines. I am wondering if they have more deposits sent than anticipated, or more "unknowns" out there than usual.
  12. Fair. But this was based on their post history. Edit: It reads as a little delusional.
  13. Ya'll. This person is a conservative Trump troll and likely an anti-vaxxer who found their way to a health forum.

    Congratulations! So wonderful to hear. I would talk to Mr. LaVenia; I will PM you his e-mail if you'll accept me as a "friend" via AN. He can handle your inquiry re: the hold. You will be automatically enrolled; I would say give it some time since you just paid your deposit. We have no control over our schedules and they are made for us, including placements. Best of luck!
