I applied earlier this month (April) to the direct entry FNP program. Still waiting to hear something. I received the financial aid packet, and have since applied for it and for the scholarships through Vanderbilt. As I stated in another post on another thread, it seems crazy that Vanderbilt would waste $1.32 in stamps to send out financial aid information to applicants they have no intention of accepting or wait-listing. After reading up on the program, and on the university itself, I really hope I'm accepted to the FNP program this year. If not, I'll definitely be asking them why, and reapplying in December. The waiting feels like forever!
