    I got my acceptance letter from BC :) Still weighing my options but leaning towards BC.

    She would not give an exact number, but she did say I was in the top 5 for psych so if you email her you might be able to get some sort of idea.

    Just a quick update for everyone else who got waitlisted. I was told that the second wave people have until the 25th to make their decisions and their waitlist is ranked, at least for psych.

    Hey guys! I called and spoke with someone in the admission's office today and I just thought I'd give everyone else still waiting an update. She told me that if you did not receive an email in the first wave, you are a qualified applicant and have not been rejected (yay!). In the second wave, you either will be accepted or waitlisted depending on how many people from the first wave put down their deposits. She told me that we should receive an email by Wednesday. Good luck everyone! :)

    Thanks for messaging me! I tried to PM you back, but it said I wasn't able to. I'm deciding between MGH and BC, but BC is my first choice so I'm hoping I'll hear good news in the next week! :)

    Thanks for posting about your visit! Glad to hear you got a good impression and very cool that they are building a new building for the SON! s-lizzy - just curious, which other schools are you deciding between?

    There is a supplementary form in addition to the FAFSA, it is on the BC website. You can download it here: Graduate Financial Aid: Where Do I Begin? - Office of Student Services - Boston College
  10. I agree that recognizing that the patient is in a crisis in the early stages is key. Also, if you can try to establish good rapports with the patients when they are not in crisis, so that when they are they will be more willing to listen and trust you. You also have to remember that every patient is different so what works for one patient may not work for another, and different techniques may work best during different stages of the crisis.

    Chemistry sites please:)

    definitely check out Khan Academy! I used it and it was SO helpful, I ended up with an A.

    Hi! I am waiting to hear as well, I applied for psych. I got an email and had a phone interview with someone from BC earlier this week and she told me that they would be informing of final decisions very soon, so I am thinking/hoping that we will hear on or before the 28th!
  14. I applied to a nursing school an hour away from where I live and I have a 2 year old. I commuted a little over an hour for my bachelors when she was an infant and it worked out ok. She does go to daycare part time, which will probably have to increase once I start nursing school, but honestly she LOVES it! It has been so great because she's an only child and she gets to play with other kids all day, she's learned sign language, and I think that being with kids slightly older has helped her learn. I think that daycare can be really great if you can do it! It definitely can work!

    I know, it does seem really early! Especially since they haven't even released out all the decisions yet!

    The way I read it, I believe that we would fall under the "Incoming Graduates (Feb. 1 or Earlier Admission Deadlines)" category, which would mean that the FAFSA is due Feb. 17th and the BC form is due Feb. 24th.
