    Thanks guys. No, I didn't get that email and I was freaking out about it. I was reading forums from 2011 and 2012 and it seemed that everyone who got that email ended up getting in. I figured since they didn't take time to send me the email that I was getting rejected.

    I got the same email on Friday in the afternoon as well. Did you receive it @jasonmstone82?

    I never got the email on Friday. But I also never got the email from admissions confirming my application was complete and ready for review back in December like everyone else.

    I know everyone here is from a nonnursing background- have you all also considered PA school?

    Just found out that I got in for PNP-PC! I'm so excited for August!

    I considered PA school, but a lot of them (at least schools in the Chicago area I looked at) required or highly recommended having hundreds of clinical hours prior to applying. Applicants admitted to Northwestern had an average of 3000 clinical hours prior to applying. I didn't want to take a year or two off to get that many hours. I also prefer the nursing model to the medical model.

    Based on the schedule of interview dates and times they sent me. The last day for FNP interviews was on Valentine's Day.

    Congrats...but you should probably change your name since you have not earned that credential...i believe that is a rule on this site and its technically illegal.

    Congrats incher and ahfnp! I guess all others will have to wait until Tuesday because of the holiday.
