Haven’t asked both Yale and Columbia yet as I believe I have enough time to decide. But Johns Hopkins did give me an extension till the 14th. They honestly know you may have other options and different things go into making a decision. So they honestly are very flexible.

Haha I put the sticker they gave us in our admissions package behind my car and already have two people asking me if I was an alumni. Johns Hopkins has a strong reputation for the health sciences so I guess we are in good hands.
Also with respect to the other programs I think it really goes down to your ultimate goals and what you intend your career to pan out to be. UCSF has a good nursing program and I applied there mainly because of their emphasis on research and the work they do to help the homeless. JHU is perfect if you’re into working with underserved and want to gain real Leadership skills. If you’re passionate about working with global or immigrant populations, Columbia and Yale would be your place. So in my opinion trust your passion and go where you’d get the most for your money. Also a lot of people would be applying for nurse corps scholarships to see if they can get some money to offset the loans cos these programs aren’t cheap. Vanderbilt also has a solid program but they don’t give out as much money.
I’m super long winded but hope this helps with perspective.
Absolutely not! Yale specifically say on their website that they admit students without regard for their ability to pay. It may however affect how much need based scholarships or grants you get. But never ever your admission decision. And that’s the same for other programs that are second degree or masters.
Yes, you consider it a master level program. And if you’re above a certain age, I think 25 (not sure) or if the application considers you independent then you don’t need to provide your parents financial info. If you’re dependent I think you do.
