Hello! I'm considering applying for the Janaury 2016 start as well. Got everything but ccrn squared away. Where are you working currently? Are you in DFW?

I'm also planning on applying for January 2016. Done with the GRE and I'm about to start a Biochemistry course to help boost my science GPA and as a general refresher. Also studying for CCRN, should have it by mid April. So exciting!

Me too! Just got my CCRN, 91/125 it's not that bad. Do they ask your score?

I know they used to ask your total correct on the CCRN, either during the application process or at the interview. Not sure if they still do.

I think you made a typo with you gre score

The highest combined score you can get is a 340

^looks like somebody's jealous they didn't get 382 on the GRE. I wish I had done that well too, but I'm happy for ohyeah cause she/he apparently blew the roof off that stinky awful test. (ohyeah pls pm me your secrets) :p

For real though, I got 323 and 4.0 forGRE, will have 1 yr 9 mo experience Cardiac / medical icu (not much surgery), total GPA 3.6, but bsn 3.3. Mainly I'm counting on Jedi mind tricks to dazzle the interviewers into accepting me. Failing that, I'm considering robbing a bank and bribing more qualified applicants to decline their spots. If they refuse said bribes, I know a guy named "Big Mike" who is very persuasive. My plan is bulletproof. Could you guys all post your full names, addresses, and SSNs please??

My fingers are crossed that the interviewers will just sense my dedication and accept me immediately.

Also planning on applying. Stats are not the best as of right now. Hoping to do well on GRE. Taking CCRN soon also.

GPA 3.4, Science GPA 4.0

2 years in MICU

How are everyone's applications coming?

You've got plenty of time!!

Any body know how much money they are going to try and borrow? I'm talking with my wife about money for living expenses or if we want to do just do tuition.

Thoughts??

We've been debating a similar thought. My tuition will be covered, but I'm not sure about living expenses. My fiancé will continue working but we're used to two incomes. It would be interesting to hear from current students on how they managed!

That's our situation as well. I'm just not sure how much is too much you know? The tuition for TCU is 85k without taking any living expenses into consideration. My wife will continue working but I'm thinking a little extra for things that come up each month would be ok

Thoughts??

Ok so I did a little research and contacted a former coworker who is currently in TCUs DNP-A program. She said its very typical to borrow more than just tuition.

My wife and I are planning on a little more than tuition but will not be borrowing cost of attendance due to her working full time.

Good to know! I'm curious as to how it works with clinical sites, since obviously there will be different costs at different places.
