Seattle University APNI - page 5
I just got accepted to Seattle University's APNI program and was wondering if any of my fellow future classmates were interested in starting a thread of our own. We are about to embark on an... Read More

I'm in for the Ram on Monday! I haven't actually decided between SU or OHSU yet and am still waiting another week for Georgetown, so I would love all your input.
I graduated from Whitman College and spent the last 4 years living in Asia, and moved back to the US take prereqs and start nursing school! Very excited about everything and I'll see some of you on Monday!

The Ram doesn't take reservations, but I'll give them a call Monday and they should be able to hold a table for us.
Nonetheless, let's shoot for 7PM at The Ram in the UVillage.

Many thanks and congrats to all!
Apr 5, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 2; Likes: 1I'd love to meet everyone, but unfortunately I'm not available tomorrow. I hope there will be another gathering. Have fun!
Apr 5, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 2Im just wondering if we might have a hard time getting a table because of the NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship game that night (it starts at 6:30pm). I don't know anything about it, but my boyfriend said The Ram maybe packed! Just thought I might mention this - but if no one else is worried about it Im fine with sticking to our plans.
Apr 5, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 3Hello,
Thx for getting this started! I live in West Seattle & am in the process of moving in with my boyfriend who lives by Northgate so I would be game to carpool, vanpool or bike in with others in the area. We can talk about that later. As for tomorrow night, I'm in - will arrive closer to 7:30. The RAM actually is a sports bar so it could be a mess tomorrow night. Another option in the U District is the bar/restaurant in the basement of the Hotel Deca (corner of Brooklyn & 45th). It's called The District. Here's a link to it: http://www.hoteldeca.com/deca_dining.aspx It's not a sports bar.
To the person who is trying to make up their mind between OHSU & SU, I went through the same mental gymnastics & would be happy to talk with you about your decision.
Looking forward to meeting you all!
Apr 5, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 3...that said, it might be easier just to stick to the original plan & just deal with the crowd if there is one. If the RAM will hold us a table, then we should be fine. see you there!
Apr 6, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 10; Likes: 3I'm planning to attend. If it's too crowded, there are a few other bar/restaurants in U Village or we could caravan to the U District.
Excited to meet everyone!
Apr 6, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 14; Likes: 1Yeah, the game starts around 6:30pm tonight so it'll prolly be packed at The Ram. I'm going to call them around 6pm and maybe get down there a little earlier so that we can hopefully get a table by 7pm. If not, like Mike said, we can always go somewhere else. The table will be under my name (Jessica) for about 12 people.

I'm really happy that people were able to make it out tonight on such short notice! Thanks for coming! It was great to meet everyone and put a name/personality to the face. I can already tell that we've got a great cohort this year!
We'll definitely plan something for next month (May) and something in June before orientation.
Anyone have any suggestions on where, when, or what to do?
I can't wait to meet everyone else!

Apr 8, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 10; Likes: 3Has anyone else looked at their Financial Aid award -- I have some confusion about whether aid is available for the summer term and what the exact cost of the first year is.
Does anyone know more?
Apr 8, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 3I haven't received a financial aid award letter yet- I did check SUonline but it's showing my award letter isn't available. Is that where you saw yours, or did they mail you something?
I know that the summer financial aid has to be applied for separately. Under "My documents" on SUonline, I did have a message that I needed to fill out a summer financial aid application, and that the deadline for applying is 6/30/09. I'm afraid that's all I know!
I'm wondering about the cost too- all I know is the cost per credit, which is $541. I'd like to know what they calculate for the cost of attendance since that's what financial aid is based on. Anyone else know more?
