    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    I applied part-time. Still no letter yet. I can definitely only do the part-time sequence since I do have a child and will be working three twelves as well. Plus, I don't want to take out any other loans so I will be paying my way through the program, with the help of hospital loan repayment, hopefully. I was discouraged yesterday but not today! I remember getting into the accelerated bsn program. Everyone had gotten their letters and before I even received a "no" I was already calling admissions asking about the appeal process lol Then, an adviser laughed and told me to just wait on the letter. I did. Got into that program. So, I'm anxious but, I know that I met all requirements and have a good shot. If not, next year, I'll reapply. No problem.

    AMD88 Very interesting! They sent you the wrong letter for the track that you wanted :) Well, at least you got an acceptance letter. I hope that they allow you to get into the track that you wanted. Congratulations. That's great news for you.

    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    Well, since UF is my old choice, the wait isn't bothering me too much. But, I wonder if there are people who turned down other schools to wait for UF...But, anyways, I am hoping that the letters get to us next Monday. It sounds like they won't get them out until Thursday or Friday of this week. So, I'm hopeful for an acceptance letter in Saturday or Monday mail for everyone :)

    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    I am so excited about this!!! :) I don't see too many people on here who applied for acute care peds so I hope that my chance of getting in is high *crossing fingers. I have hope.

    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    Well, since they said they would be SENT out at the end of month, latest, technically we should all have our answers by Monday or Tuesday latest. So, I wish you all luck! I hope that we all get in. I'm now curious about which tracks they are undecided on about how many spots there will be...I applied to PAC-NP. I would think that CNM, Family and Adult would have the highest demand...But, I could be terribly wrong. Anybody with additional info please let us know. Thanks!

    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    Not sure because they accept people on a rolling basis so the number changes daily. I know that the track that you applied to matters more than the amount of total applicants because certain specialties are in high demand such as: Family and Adult. Since UF is the only place that I would want to go ( I don't want to uproot) I have kind of accepted the waiting process. Question: Could somebody please let me know the estimated cost of attendance? I really need to know. Yes, I checked the bursar website but I don't know whether to calculate the credits as "grad 5555-9999 level" or just use the "PA" credit fee. This may sound crazy but....I actually want to attempt to pay my way through grad school without loans. BUT, I have applied to the part-time track.

    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    I am so sorry samiam856 . You seem very disappointed. But, I do believe that this is a tactic for some universities...They seem to kind of make their acceptance letters go out a little later to weed out students who are on the fence or that might commit to other institutions. BUT, I do know that the staff is CON is super behind because of the loss of the grad school coordinator/adviser so I expected this to happen. UF is a huge university with tons of students. Maybe you could go talk to someone in the office to see if they can expedite your decision or possibly e-mail it instead of mailing...Good luck wherever you go! Sounds like you got into another program so CONGRATS! So happy for you!

    UF BSN-DNP 2014

    Same for me. I was told late May but will be out of the country for volunteer medical outreach from mid-May until mid-June. But, the wait will be worth it :) I applied to the Acute Care Peds NP track. I prefer to work in the hospital setting for now. I prefer the spaciousness and pace. I like being able to get a lot of walking in during the day because if I were in a more confined space, I'd get drowsy. I like to keep moving around and seeing new/rare diagnosis. I'm excited for each of you. I hope that we all get it. Good luck everyone

    UF Accelerated BSN Fall 2012

    Okkk...Sweettooth in the house! Ate three cups of fro-yogurt today because of the anxiety! :) I saw a rant on here about the inconvenience of the late letters taking so long to reach residences. I am not trying to offend anybody but, I must say that even though UF has taken a little longer than expected, a) this IS the first SUMMER start for this program...b) it would make sense that UF would take longer to mail out decisions being that we ARE at the BEST university (public) in the state and would probably have a ton of applicants c) I think it will work to the advantage of those who are outliers or waitlisted because those of you accept other schools with open up spots for those of us who are dying to get into UF d) the bit about April being busy for us who would have to complete immunizations, CPR training etc... We're adults. It's nursing school, right? A lot of those requirements are standard procedure for any nursing program. I totally understand those of you who had to make decisions prior to receiving the answer from UF. That's hard. But, you got into a nursing school, right?! That's great! Good luck! Now, other people have a chance to fill those spots. Ladies & gents, we should all be more careful about insulting the programs (esp. when the coordinator of the program can see it! eek!). Those who are waiting with me, let's *cross our fingers* and hope that we get good news tomorrow. If not, it's petition time, baby! I want in!

    UF Accelerated BSN Fall 2012

    Not in my mailbox yet! Sweating bullets! I'm really hoping to get in for me and my son! I love UF! But, I can see that this applicant pool was VERY STRONG! My GPA is 3.6 I got 148 Quant 154 Verbal and I had like a 3.2 or 3.3 pre-req average...My stats aren't that great but, I can write like no other! I love to write! So, I'm hoping that my essay convinced them of my determination and desire to get in! *crossing my fingers. I'm optimistic :) But, I wish you all the best! It should be in my box by 4:30 PM and it's 3:45 pm right now
