    Yale GEPN 2014 Applicants

    NYC is about an hour and a half to two hours away from Orange/New Haven via MetroNorth (West Haven or Union Station). Yes, students go to the big apple from time to time! :) Either just to visit, or even to go to conferences there. Depending on your specialty, you even get together with students from other programs around region (NYU/Columbia/etc) to talk about various issues. There are even a few who decide to live in the city and commute to Yale.

    That's really interesting ;-) I wonder why our stats differ (482 vs >600). I can't really say where I got this info without breaking the ToS.

    Yale GEPN 2014 Applicants

    More than 600 applicants this year. More than 200 to midwifery.

    Be aware that YSN is no longer in New Haven, but on "West Campus" which is in Orange, CT, 15-20 minutes west of New Haven. It's more suburbia there, and not crappy in the sense that New Haven is.

    Yes, midwifery seems to be the most competitive. For this year's incoming class, they had the highest GPA and GRE scores. The breakdown in specialty seems to differ from year to year.

    Yale GEPN Chances

    Honestly it's really hard to say. The GRE is just one of many components they look at, so there's probably a somewhat decent variety of scores amongst admitted applicants.

    Yale GEPN Applicants 2011

    Hi - I applied to Hopkins for 2011 start. From my applications, Yale was the only one that had a fall start - all my other applications had summer starts. My acceptance for JHU this year was really weird - they had a ton of trouble communicating with students and so while we were supposed to be informed of our admittance status in early February (before Yale's acceptance notification), I didn't find out I was accepted until late March, much after my deposit for my other schools was required. My prediction is that next year they will have fixed whatever kink was in their admissions system. Still, most of the acceptances, regardless of start date, come in the month of February. Good luck!

    I found this randomly on google: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=52936853994&topic=8350 Speaking of which - I've noticed in other threads that every other school has a facebook page up... is anyone creating one for Yale?

    Hi WilliamsRower, This is from last year's Yale thread: https://allnurses.com/ct-nursing-programs/yale-gepn-fall-390981-page28.html#post4181742

    Columbia University ETP 2011

    Methodology is stated here: http://www.usnews.com/education/articles/2010/04/15/the-health-rankings-methodology "All the health rankings are based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, and/or faculty at accredited degree programs or schools in each discipline." "Nursing specialty rankings are based solely on ratings by educators at peer schools. Nursing educators nominated up to 10 schools for excellence in each area."

    Columbia University ETP 2011

    In general, good prices for California to NYC roundtrip would be around $300. Not sure what prices would be like with 1 week to buy. Also, instead of JFK, consider Newark (EWR). It's probably easier to get to Columbia from Newark than JFK. Just take the NJTransit NorthEast Corridor to Penn station, and you can take the 1-line up to 168th.

    How long is your commute? How many times a week do you go to school?

    (This is just a guess: ) Every year, the midwifery (and anesthesia) program selects certain number of students to their respective programs. They have already selected their class for midwifery. Columbia allows you to switch in and out of specialties, with the exception of switching into midwifery and anesthesia. I think there was a slight misunderstanding between you and Jose.
