    Getting into NYU Accelerated Nursing Program

    Agreed with chanzer, your credentials sound just fine. With all the idiots in my class it seems like anyone can get into this program. If you want to double check though, contact the admissions office and ask them if your pre-req grades are sufficient.

    NYU Accel. BSN Fall 2010

    Hi! I was accepted to the accelerated program last week (April 14th, application was submitted mid-February). For the record, I graduated in '07 from a large southern public university with a degree in biochemistry - 3.96 GPA. I was also accepted to Yale and U. Miami, and rejected from Columbia. I'm definitely going to NYU! Mainly because I already live in Manhattan and don't want to relocate. My master plan is to get my M.S. at NYU as well and become an acute care nurse practitioner. Does anyone know anything about pursuing the dual BS/MS at NYU? When do we apply and when can we start taking graduate classes?

    Yale GEPN Fall 2010

    Hm, my family is not contributing either and I didn't list their information on my FAFSA... I have no idea where the 24,000 EFC came from. That is not even remotely feasible. I will have to call the Fin Aid office. I am doing Acute Care and no, I'm not sure about Yale yet even though I am submitting my deposit. Still waiting to hear from NYU in April. If I get accepted I have no idea which school to choose. Yale is certainly the better program but I would like a job in NYC after graduation so it would be advantageous to attend NYU in that respect. Yeah, I'll admit a 2 hour commute is pretty extreme but in terms of my personal life I think it would be a lot better for me! The boyfriend is not happy AT ALL about my potential move to CT!

    Yale GEPN Fall 2010

    Dear Biddy, and any other current/alumni GEPN students, Question for you... On interview day a professor mentioned that some past students have done clinicals in NYC. Is it possible to do ALL of your clinicals in NYC hospitals during your specialty years? Do you know of any GEPN students who have accomplished this? I'm wondering if it will be possible to live in New Haven for my 1st GEPN year and then move back to NYC for years 2 & 3. I realize that if I choose to do this I would have a long commute back to New Haven 1-2 days a week for classes in my 2nd and 3rd years but I don't mind. Thanks!

    Getting into NYU Accelerated Nursing Program

    Hey CAhopeful09, I know how you feel. I was also rejected from Columbia, my first choice, and I have NO idea why... I had a 3.96 GPA from a widely known state school, 1200+ GREs, lots and lots of relevant medical volunteer experience, and stellar reccommendations (I was told this by an interviewer at another school I applied to). I also worked really, really hard on my essays... I was absolutely CRUSHED when I found out I didn't get in. I received the email while I was at work and I spent the rest of the day in my cubicle trying to hide my tears from my coworkers... Maybe I didn't get accepted because I applied to the ultra-competitive Anesthesia track?? But still, I heard they consider you for another specialty if they don't accept you for Anesthesia... But no, they completely threw out my app. Not even waitlisted... Why, Columbia, why? The other schools I applied to are U. Miami, NYU, and Yale. So far only accepted to Yale for the Acute Care specialty but I would rather go to NYU since I currently live in Manhattan and don't want to move. And I think I'm going to get rejected from Miami because I just realized I don't have the Anatomy Laboratory pre-req. When do we hear back from NYU??? Does anyone know officially? The website seems to say multiple things.

    Do you think if we graduate from Yale that our children will get accepted to Yale also? just a random thought haha.

    Yale GEPN Fall 2010

    I got accepted to Acute Care! I'm still looking at Miami & NYU though. Miami because it's cheaper and NYU because it's in NYC. (I currently live in NYC). I really don't know if I could call New Haven home for 3 years, there was really nothing about the area I found appealing. Unless I receive a sizeable financial aid package from Yale, I highly doubt I will consider it.

    Columbia ETP 2010

    I did not get accepted (applied to the Anesthesia track). I am pretty heartbroken right now since NYC is already my home and I just can't bear to leave my life here -- I adore my apt, my roommates, & my friends here. Maybe I will just stay in my current job and re-apply again nxt year. To give you an idea of my what my app entailed here's a mini-resume... B.S. in Biochem with Chem minor. 4.0 GPA 3 yrs working as a research biochemist at a pharmaceutical company several yrs experience volunteering in various healthcare settings also various non-healthcare volunteer experience GRE: 1230 If anyone has any suggestions on how I could improve my application, please feel free to let me know!! I also applied to U. Miami & Yale. Miami is my next choice... My sincerest, warmest, congrats to all who were accepted. Manhattan is a fantastic town and you will love it. Even though it is crazy expensive. Ugh I guess on the bright side I don't have to move to Harlem... But seriously, the diversity, the ambition, and the energy that the city embodies is unparalleled.

    University of Miami Accelerated BSN - Class of 2011

    Hello! Congrats to all who were accepted! I also applied this round but I haven't heard back and I'm pretty confused... I submit my application in October and it's now February. I called Miami this morning and all they could tell me was that they indeed have all my materials but they can't tell me what date I am supposed to hear back by, since there is no specific date. What?? How can they leave me hanging like this? Does anyone have a phone number at Miami I can call to check? When I called the Nursing office this morning they transferred me to FIVE different people before I got any kind of answer!
