FunkySkunk, what other schools have you applied to?

I'm only applying to two other schools: Penn and OHSU. I figure I can broaden the field next year, if need be. Hopefully, I'll just get in this round!

Fantastic choices! I avoided applying to Penn because of the tuition. I do wish you luck with them all!

It's good to finally get done with the proctored essay yesterday. It didn't seem as challenging as I'd imagined it. The essay section did require some introspection; I took a good 10 minutes thinking on what to write. I even started over a few times. The math section brought back memories of the days of Chemistry, except for the usual associated panic. It was nice to see who some of the other applicants were. So about everybody except a handful of people and myself were female. What?! So, 160 applicants for 48 spots. We have a nearly 1 in 3 chance of acceptance.

How did you all feel about it?

I agree, it's good to be done with the essay - and entire application process! I feel pretty good about it but I certainly had that moment of panic with the math - mostly because it was easier than I expected. I kept looking for the hidden tricks.

Now it's just a matter of waiting to hear. Good luck to everyone!

I agree that it was easier than I anticipated. The only hard part was squeezing lots of info into a brief two pages of space and one hour time limit (I tend to be long-winded).

Did they say that there were only 160 applicants this year? That seems like a large decrease from the number I've heard in years past.

Yeah! The essay was quite pleasant. I feel like my recent work experience here in Seattle really helped me write with ease, although I'm sure a different topic would have jumped out at me. The math was easier than I expected. Perhaps that's because I was studying for the GRE as well and it the math there has a broader range, obviously.

I was one of the males there too, was shocked by the ratio! The guy who sat next to me was fun to chat with for a little before the test :) put things to ease. I think that the number of applicants was a bit smaller than normal (sweet), but the really large applicant pool is for the regular BSN program. The accelerated is always much smaller than that one.

I believe she had mentioned that their decisions would be made by early next year. No need to rush it :) whatever happens, happens. We've done all we can!

Happy Holidays everyone!!

Nice find spaceshuttleboy! Although, that just made my heart rate skyrocket. I was trying to tell myself it'd be January in case they sent them out early, it would be an early christmas gift! Oh well, now I'm pretty excited to get it so soon! One month...

Does anybody know if we would need a car for this program? I don't drive so am hoping I can still get by going to clinicals! (If I get in of course, haha)

I live in Seattle presently and so I can tell you confidently that you can get around the city very easily without a car. Most locations where you'll do your clinicals for the are all accessible by bus, and the UW has a free shuttle from campus to UWMC and Harborview, the main academic hospitals.

I see you're also in for NYU. So am I. I'm waiting for hear from UW before committing to NYU. What school are you more excited to attend?
