    I did. I had a pretty good non-covid reason though (National Guard Orders), so I have no idea how difficult it is to get a deferment in other circumstances. Personally I am happy it has happened this way as my Guard time will help me get my finances in order and I'd prefer a traditional (not online) learning environment.

    I got in off the waitlist. After waiting almost the entire 48 hours though I decided to go with Columbia. Hope this helps someone that is still waiting!

    I got in off the waitlist at Yale which created a (happy) dilemma for me as I was already accepted to CUSON. This was very useful though and helped me make my decision in favor of CUSON.

    Waitlisted. Sort of happy about it though as I've already placed my deposit for Columbia's DNP program. This way I have no "wonder if" type concerns. Congrats to everyone who gets good news today!

    Hey all, Got a reply from Jana saying she intends to release all decisions Feb 1.

    Columbia DNP vs. Yale MSN

    So I imagine a few folks will be in this position, but at the moment, I have been accepted to Columbia's DNP program and have interviewed for Yale's MSN. If I get into Yale as well, I will have a tough (but admittedly desirable) choice on my hands. I was hoping to get anyone's take on this decision who either has experience with these schools, has applied to both, or has significant experience in the field (and can talk about the merits of the DNP vs. the MSN). Pros Columbia (for me): DNP as opposed to an MSN. I think the DNP has some extra content in the curriculum (policy, bioethics, etc. that would be useful). Cons Columbia: VERY Expensive. Classes during the DNP summers. Pros Yale: Actually seems somewhat more financially manageable than Columbia. MSN summers are free. Cons Yale MSN vs. DNP. Perhaps less linked into major job markets compared to Columbia's vantage point in NYC? Tied Everyone knows they are both great schools. I don't know how to feel about locations. A younger me would have been fascinated by the idea of a 3 year stay in NYC. At 33, in a pandemic, and past my party days (not that I will have time anyways) however its 50-50. I've studied at Yale before, love it there, and know New Haven well. Anyways, fire away. If I'm being honest, if Yale's program was a DNP I think my answer would be a lot easier, so if anyone can speak to the distinction between degrees at its importance it would be appreciated!

    This captures my own motives basically perfectly. Our school set is the same too, except I applied to BC instead of Vanderbilt. I wish Yale's program was a DNP. It seems to be the same amount of work.

    Here;s my stats for those interested: Undergrad: BA in Math and Philosophy from a SUNY, 3.7/4 Graduate: MA Theology from an Ivy, Seminary masters after that. Prereqs: 4/4, Stats and Micro still pending. Extras: Army Vet, Chaplaincy background, getting ordained in my tradition (we don't do full time paid clergy, more a community service context). Status: Accepted Best of luck all!

    It's really close and up in the air. Pros for Yale are that I'm a prior student and I like that they have more of a zero-day start (technically there are no pre reqs, though I've done a few). Pros for Columbia are that it is a MS/DNP instead of just an MSN for the same time commitment and NYC (though I love New Haven too). I honestly don't know. Slight lean towards Yale.

    Had my interview today. I don't feel entirely bad about it but... unlike my interview with BC it felt very business like. It was very question and response rather than conversational, 37 minutes total. In any event, I got into Columbia's MDE/DNP today, which certainly takes the edge off!

    Accepted for MDE/DNP (PMHNP Track)! One point of minor concern though, anyone else notice the short response time (Jan 29th)? I applied to three other schools and none of then even make a decision by then!

    Wow. So in all likelihood they are probably more selective than the ivies for nursing? 🤔

    Mine went over a bit, but neither outcome is good or bad of itself I think. They said the interview would only be ten minutes. Mine was conversational, basically taked about the profession itself and navigating the RN phase.

    That's rough, and I hope everything moves harmoniously with the new job. I just had an interview with Boston College. I kept my prep simple and did the following: 1. Came up with questions relevant to BC. and my specialty. 2. Looked at my interviewer's school bio. 3. Reviewed my application materials. 4. Was ready to answer "why nursing" type questions.

    It's not major. They just havent been as helpful/responsive as Yale and other schools. I think Columbia's program is alot bigger.
