    I got my acceptance letter today!!!!! YAY

    I just got mine too! It's such a validation of all that hard work, all those dreams and plans! Congratulations to all! People who haven't been through this can never understand how much it means to get accepted!

    Summer Entry 2013 Accelerated BSN/MSN Johns Hopkins

    It's really annoying that other schools have such a short amount of time within which you have to respond, which may or may not correspond with response times from other schools. One thing that is super classy about JHU is that the response deadline is May 1. I wish all schools would take notice and do likewise.

    Finally fell asleep at about 4:30am and woke up to an acceptance e-mail! Fall start, ABSN only!

    Of course that being said, another competitive school which shall remain nameless told me 7 weeks ago that I would hear in 2-3 weeks, so...you never know!

    I'm Fall ABSN and they told me March 1. Can't speak for the other groups for sure but it sounds like this is big the day for everyone!

    I e-mailed my specific admissions counselor to ask how we would hear but didn't hear back. They're probably super busy at this point so that's kind of fair.

    NursingCAS Complaint

    I have no advice but I have been through the same thing with NursingCAS, they are terrible. They lost THREE of my transcripts. All the other nursing schools received them, but NursingCAS says they never got them. So basically, they lost them. I complained and demanded to speak to a manger. Magically, one of the three appeared. It had been mis-filed and they were able to find it because I complained loudly enough. But I had to have the other two re-sent. Also, they take SIX weeks to "process" the transcripts, so you have to wait six weeks to realize you'll need to request them all over again and wait another six weeks. After this admissions process is over I'll be writing a detailed letter to the schools I applied to who work with NursingCAS to advise that they stop using it.

    UMSON CNL Fall 2013 Applicants

    Admissions told me that interviews will take place in March, so I expect we will know before too long whether or not we have been invited to interview!

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    That e-mail confused me a bit. It said selected applicants are invited to a campus visit; does that mean that if you're not selected for the visit you already know you won't get accepted to the program? Admissions told me earlier that the visit days are in March, so it would seem that we would know by the end of February whether or not we have a real shot at getting in.

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    Re: the interview time, I saw somewhere on the FAQs of the site that does the video interviews that the maximum time is 4:00. It still recorded beyond four minutes, which confused me, but I kept it to four minutes just in case. In retrospect Georgetown probably would have indicated in their materials that it had to be so short, and they didn't, so mine was probably too short. Anyway, no word back on interviews yet. Admissions said selected applicants will be invited to campus visit days that take place in March, so I'm assuming we will hear back this month! I hope that me and my fingernails will be able to make it through the next four weeks!

    Johns Hopkins!! I've Been Accepted!!!

    Congratulations! I'm doing a major career switch too and definitely understand how emotional it can be to do so! No word for me yet. I applied for Regular Decision Fall 2013 ABSN program. They said I would hear "by" March 1, so hopefully there will be word this month! I'm just trying to maintain sanity and not spend 24/7 checking my e-mail! I hope others can post when they get decisions. Best wishes to everyone as we start hearing back!
