    University at Rochester May 2020 ABPNN

    If you are asking me, my undergrad gpa is 3.2 with 3.7-3.8 for prerequisite. Had a year of experience as an MA but I was very involved with patient care. My background is also diverse. I received a scholarship with my offer for those who are wondering. I’m just curious if there is an information session or anything like that since our start date is sometime in May? Can someone verify the exact date? I also got into Hopkins for their entry lvl man program but it’s quite expensive and it’s 22 months vs 12 months to be an RN which is why I’m considering Rochester. Anyone here on the same boat?

    Hey everyone! I was accepted today too and considering going here but will need to do more research before I decide. Is there a Facebook group yet?

    I feel like the 2020 cohort is very social compared to the past years. Or it's probably because everyone is super nervous because it can be anytime between tomorrow to next week.

    Yep, definitely did not receive that email. Anyone else here did not receive it? Lowkey just tripping because decision date is very close lol. Prob nbd?

    I haven't been getting their emails for a while. When did you receive this email? I also did not receive an email stating that they will release decisions in early Feb, I only found out by speaking to admissions over the phone. Hope this isn't an indication for students who did not get in...

    Anyone know where I can find the dates for all events such as accepted students day, orientation, start date, etc. Trying to get prepared for planning the visits if accepted.

    From being with your cohort, is there anyway you can give us an idea of what Columbia is looking for? I know its vague but is your cohort very diverse as far as no healthcare experience to tons of healthcare experience and etc. If you don't mind what did your application look like as far as healthcare experience and what did you think made you a strong applicant? Thanks!

    Nobody really knows what each schools look for since the cohort is so diverse. From what I've heard, they accept students who bring diversity to the class as it is better to have a multicultural perspective which is why Columbia is taking a holistic approach. But then again I'm not an admissions officer so idk. The anxiety is lowkey creeping up though lol.

    I had to pay a deposit as well for Hopkins lol I got into the Spring cohort but I deferred. If you got into Columbia, would you just notify Hopkins that you would not be attending if that were to be the case?

    I thought it was 15 months as well but I heard from faculty that it was actually 22 months. Not sure which is actually true.

    Anyone here got into Hopkins? Columbia and Hopkins are my top two but idk what I would choose.. Columbia has a higher price tag and lower NCLEX scores but then again, isn't it just the capability and effort of the student rather than the school itself? Hopkins is overall better support system I feel like BUT Columbia has the better environment for me and since I will apply to the DNP as well, it would be a better route. Anyone got some advice for me if I do get into Columbia? @Barbiegirl1229 The acceptance rate is around 30%. Last year, apparently they received around 700-800 applicants and accepted 200-250. You can never see what the pool of applicants look like but assuming you will have a better chance as a well rounded applicant with passion. Thats very vague but that's all the information they give out lol. Assuming grades is just a small factor, your experiences, personal statements, and LORs is your key to the acceptance letter. This wait is killing me too and sometimes I have to go back to the earlier pages to assure myself that I was a strong applicant so I don't have to stress myself over it.

    Did anyone here apply to Hopkins as well? I got into Hopkins (deferred) so I can wait for Columbia's decisions. Does any applicants or anyone who knew past applicants who got into one or the other? Or both? I believe those two schools look for very similar values in students via diversity. Long story short, I wanna know if the chances of an applicant who has gotten into JHU would have a solid chance of getting into CU's MDE program. JHU may outrank CU in nursing program but the environment and city of NY tops Baltimore for me.

    Johns Hopkins Entry MSN Spring 2020

    Did anyone receive their acceptance for Spring 2020 (May Start)? I got accepted today but clueless on the area since I am from California. Wanted to see if others have a better insight on the program/living situations.

    StonyBrook ABSN: Class of 2021

    I believe first wave is for the students that they review first or else they would've just sent all invites all at once rather than space it out? Not sure though, but does anyone know how many waves they have and when might the next one be?
