    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 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.
