It's insanely early to think about this, but here's a thread for anyone applying for the VCU DNAP cohort set to begin January 2021, the application window is open! Are you studying for your GRE yet? ?

Not too early I was literally just searching for this thread. Thanks for starting it?

Yes, daughter was waitlisted last year. Will apply again this time. Hopefully second time is the magic.

I'm planning to apply for 2021! I took my GRE and CCRN in October. If you focus on your weak areas for studying, the tests aren't too horrible.

Less than a month to go until apps are due everyone, how's it goin'? Anyone still have to tackle the GRE? ?

Does anyone know whether our official transcripts need to be submitted with the application? Or our official GRE scores? I can't seem to find any instructions that say to submit it or to where, but I feel like this is something they would need? I emailed them a few weeks ago, but still have no response.

When I emailed them about a GPA question a couple weeks ago I was told to upload unofficial transcripts. Maybe they’ll ask for official transcripts if accepted? I did send off my GRE scores from ETS and also input them into the NursingCAS where indicated (still waiting on my writing score though).

Hope that helps, and good luck to everyone! We’re getting down to the wire here!!

Did anyone inquire or find guidance on the statement of intent in terms of a word limit? This is the only program that hasn't stated one explicitly thus far, I was surprised.

I did the same, uploaded unofficial transcripts and sent official GRE scores from ETS. I'm appreciative that some schools are allowing unofficial copies be electronically uploaded to save a bit of money.

Where in the application did you submit the transcripts? I'm not seeing an area to submit those.
