    UMass Boston - ABSN Spring 2021

    I emailed this morning and was told that my application was very strong but they had a lot of applicants and simply not enough seats. I was told that there isn't much I can do to "improve" my application but they did mention I could resubmit an essay and recommendation letters. Not the news I wanted this morning but I'm glad they make it easy to reapply!

    My portal updated this morning, I was not accepted. Good luck to everyone!

    RIGHT?! I check all the time. The tab is open while I'm at work and I refresh throughout the day 😂 I feel like it could update at any time!

    @IsabellaU We are so close! Hoping we hear soon, I'm so anxious. I hope they notify electronically and not just via mail...

    @IsabellaU Thank you for the info! I still check everyday knowing there won't be an update 😂congratulations on getting into Northeastern! I didn't apply there but really considered it. I'm kind of regretting my decision to only apply to UMB this term. Does anyone know the starting rates for nurses in Boston?

    @JDanielle3687 That's exactly how I feel. I think working as an RN while completing the Masters makes the most sense for me but I am still considering the direct entry programs. A lot depends on whether or not I get into UMB. November seems so far for decisions haha I'm so impatient 😅

    @JDanielle3687 I also want to pursue becoming a Nurse Practitioner! I totally agree that spending that much seems insane... Did you look into any direct entry programs? I looked into some but felt like doing the BSN first made more sense. Wondering what other peoples thoughts are?

    @Perrys1998 Thanks for that info! I attended an info session a few months ago and they didn't explain that so that's great to know - also seems to make sense but definitely more difficult for people who don't live closeby. @efc1996 I applied to MCPHS for fall 2020 and was accepted but didn't go mostly due to financial reasons and felt like I couldn't leave my current job. I've only applied to UMB for Spring 2021 and I'm reallllly hoping I get in.

    Just wondering - My understanding is that the program is fully online except for the 2 weeks of clinical rotations at the end of each term, does anyone have different info than that?

    @Future.Derm.NP I believe the application from the student needs to be submitted by 10/1 but when I spoke to ---------------------- (transfer adm counselor for ABSN program) she said that they are accepting "materials" until 10/15. I was specifically asking about letters of recommendation bc my application status hadn't been updated yet but I'd imagine that transcripts would fall into the "materials" category! Call/email to make sure but you could be in the clear 🙂

    @efc1996 I know... same! This is the only school I applied to and I'm so nervous! I'll still be checking my admission status regularly 😄

    Just as an FYI I spoke to admissions and they're accepting application materials through October 15th! I guess that also means they don't start reviewing applications until after that? I'm so nervous!

    My says that too but I'm still waiting for my recommendation letters... When I called the the admissions office the woman told me that there are certain things that come up that they have to go in and manually update for each application which could explain why that message is still there?
