    I just had my interview today with 2 professors! I think it went well. They asked me 3 or 4 questions that they said they ask all applicants. Then they asked if I had any questions. It was a pretty short phone interview (~20 minutes). I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. They said they will send out admissions decisions the first week of march.

    Just got an interview for FNP!! Not sure when it is because I missed the call and she left a voicemail, but I should be emailed soon.

    So they are interviewing for FNP too? I thought they where only interviewing for mental health specialties.

    PMHNP always requires an interview, but according to their website "Other specialties may require an interview as well." I'm not sure if they are interviewing ALL FNP applicants, the ones they are interested in, or the ones they want some additional information about. When I talked to someone from admissions in December, it kind of sounded to me that if you don't get an interview you shouldn't automatically assume you're not getting in. There has been a lot of confusion regarding interviews on here though, so I don't know what to think.
