    Duke ABSN Fall 2017

    I actually just did all the math and Duke would cost me 47,000 more dollars and take more time (the other program is 12 months only). I'm gonna head on over to Stony Brook :) Still a great program and won't put in me in debt until I'm 100 haha I know Duke is a prestigious school, but at the end of the day, we all sit for the same boards. We all will be nurses no matter where we went. We'll all reach the dream. Good luck with your decision, Holly! I know it's a tough one to make.

    Alright, gang! I didn't get it, good job to whoever did! I will probably attend Stony Brook due to the expense lol I wish so bad it was cheaper but I'm really afraid of debt lol.

    Holly- Financial aid said you can receive anywhere from 10k to 60k in need based scholarships. I found it hard to believe myself and maybe we were right because I don't know of anyone who received that much lol. But, yeah I am pretty sure I will end up at my State University (Stony Brook University), it's still an accelerated BSN and its saving me thousands. I'm waiting on that Merit too, but as you said, its a very LONG shot. Jdictson- I'm glad you are able to attend Duke! Good to know the need based scholarship carries over to that last term as well. It's still super expensive for me though, in comparison to the other school I got into. This is a seriously tough call. I'm up in NY, so nurses here make a hell of a lot more money here as well. So I'm talking like 80K in debt in NC making $21 bucks an hour, and 40K in debt in NY at like $41 an hour. So, the financial part of it is huge for me. I loved NC, if I don't end up attending, maybe I'll move out there when I finish up this program in NY. The program here is only 12 months too, so it's a bit faster and I just want to get to work at this point lolol

    Hey everyone! To the people who found they didn't get enough financial aid, I was just wondering where your heads are at? I got accepted to a state school, which is like 40k cheaper, and Duke. Duke was what I really wanted, so while I know what I SHOULD do, its different from what I WANT to do lol. I just don't want to be kicking myself after Duke is finished when I'm sitting there with like tens of thousands in debt.

    I got mine also. I fell below the poverty line also and got less than what I need. I will wait for the answer on the merit scholarship and if I don't get it, I will probably end up at the State school I applied to. It's like 40k cheaper. Duke is just so much money, it's so hard to justify the price. I honestly thought I would have gotten more, I really wonder to what it takes to get that 60k.

    I hope so. I am in the same position as you, I really REALLY want to go to Duke but it is so expensive. That's why I'm freaking out so much about the aid information. That sucks, I would think that with two kids it'd be the opposite, but yeah I guess if your looking at combined salaries it takes the need for aid down

    I guess they are sending out financial aid all different days? Ugh I'm worried now that I didn't do something right and that I won't get one.

    I actually just called them and they told me that Financial Aid will be sent out by email this coming Friday night.

    I haven't received any financial aid information yet. On the applicant portal, it still says "Financial Aid information not ready for release". Oh gosh I hope I'm not the only one who didn't get anything yet.

    I really hope they post the financial aid by Friday... this wait is crazy on my mental well-being lol

    I haven't. Are we supposed to? The only email I received was after I accepted their offer of admission!

    I also got into a state school thats way cheaper, but they obviously don't offer any aid and are not as prestigious as Duke is. I know Duke could potentially give a lot so I hope they do cause I would really love to attend and not be like 100k in debt by the end! I hope we find out about the aid soon! Do they give it to everyone who applied, and how much depends on your FAFSA and tax return and stuff? Or do some people not get any at all? I just wonder how they determine who gets what and how many scholarships they give.

    I hope that's not true.. Half the people are going on the waitlist and half admitted? Dang, as if I wasn't already so nervous I hope they send them out today, this has been a heck of a wait.

    Anyone know if they have some type a tuition reimbursement program if you work for them? I remember reading that a few places, but there seems to be a few different things I've heard about it!
