I'm in for AGACNP! Congrats to everyone who was accepted and good luck to everyone on the wait list!
Hi all, first time poster after lurking on here now and then. I am so thrilled to share that I've been accepted to the Family Practice track and want to wish congratulations to everyone else who was accepted! For those who were waitlisted, best of luck. Similar to @dancingmidwife88, I am currently deciding between UPenn and Columbia. What are everyone's thought processes right now with regards to decisions, if you're willing to share? Finances, global health (study/work abroad) opportunities, strong research and clinical environments, degree differences (BSN/MSN vs. MSN/DNP), and location/comfort are what are preoccupying my decision making process. Is anyone aware of whether an on-site admitted students information session will be held at UPenn?
Hi dancingmidwife88 - Congratulations on your acceptances!! :) I too am making the hard decision between Columbia and UPenn. If you don't mind sharing, what pros/cons are on your mind for each program in the context of your long-term goals as an NP?
In for PMHNP :)
I'm having a really hard time. It might come down to financial aid packages. I'm in love with UPENN's program. The fact I can major in oncology I've met some of the faculty who seem excited about the students and program!! I live in Brooklyn. The logical choice would be Columbia. I really , really don't know. The smaller cohort at UPENN is also appealing!
I believe February 23rd!!!
Waitlisted for PMHNP :/ bummed but not going to let it get to me!
I was accepted! AG ACNP! Congrats to everyone!
Oh wow, that's great! Where did you see that date?
@biologyonthebrain Yeah, finances are definitely a concern. I think going to Columbia will almost surely be more expensive though, given the longer program and the much higher living costs associated with NYC lifestyle (as I'm sure you are already familiar with). I agree that the smaller cohort and closer-knit community at UPenn is really attractive. Good luck with your decision making :)
In for PMHNP :) very grateful, but lots of hard decisions to be made...
Hi there! I'm in for ABSN + MSN for Women's Health! I currently also live in NYC so it does kinda make sense to stay for Columbia... But when I went down to Philly to interview for Penn, I really liked the program and the faculty! And I would be ready for a quieter city like Philly. BUT I worry about that 18mo of ABSN where federal funding will be crap for the 2nd bachelor's... Though I do like the flexibility of working in between the ABSN and MSN for up to 5 years. But at Columbia, I could be a DNP, but their program is kinda new. Ugh so tough to decide!! I wanna see the $$$ LOL
