    Direct Entry MSN 2020 at Columbia University

    Two of the student ambassadors I spoke to said everyone who applied got in for the global opportunity — some for their first option, but if not they’re second or third. I know some students put their deposit down anyways just to save their seat? Not sure if you’d wanna do that? A girl I know put down her deposit for pace but then went to NYU they accepted her late but she wanted to secure a seat somewhere at least.

    Hey. I attended visiting day, but I actually felt pretty sold by the presenters. I know it’s their job, but I also live in New York so I wouldn’t be uprooting much. Since you’re sacrificing a lot, I could definitely understand why you may have felt underwhelmed — for someone coming all the way from LA, and having to relocate etc I’d want visiting day to completely woo me. I’m sorry you felt this way. I also felt like they didn’t speak that much about the dual degree in terms of the DNP? To be fair, by the end I started nodding off, it was really long. For me, I loved the environment and energy, I was especially fascinated by their integration semester (going global) — the simulations and labs were top tier (compared to other nyc schools I don’t know much about California schools), generous scholarship (compared to nyc schools again) — and I’d be knocking everything out all at once (MDE, DNP). I hope this helps and I hope you’re able to make a decision you truly love!

    BS in psych. 3.4 gpa. b+ Chem B+ A&P 1 and A- A&P 2 A microbiology umm I believe my other prerequisites were also around that range. I work with a non profit org specializing in disabilities. I’ve traveled overseas as a Pre nursing student volunteer In Peru and my home, Puerto Rico. I also volunteered at NYU post Op unit

    Hey everyone! My name is Amanda. I just got accepted to the direct entry program at Columbia. I know online, the start date says June 2020 but I was wondering would anyone happen to know the exact day it begins? Or by June 2020 they mean June 1st 2020 is the official start date? Lol
