Hi All, There doesn't seem to be a thread yet for pre-specialty Vandy applicants (the thread going now seems to consist mostly of grad entry), so I thought I'd start one! Any other pre-specialty folks out there? I am from... Read More

    Congrats, Jason! When is your interview? Mine is scheduled for the morning of February 12th. I was hoping to get it out of the way a little sooner, but oh well. Good luck!

    Sarah, I did get the feeling from the interview that the trip down might not be a waste of time. The interviewer suggested it would be a good idea as well. Also, my fiance and I are interested in going to Nashville at some point in the future one way or another (he's a musician), so I figure the trip will be worth it. Also, glad to see your interview went well!! Did it help you decide whether the trip might be worth your while??

    Hi all. I applied to the NMW/FNP direct entry program. I'm anxiously awaiting an email or call to schedule an interview. Is there anyone else here who applied to this specialty? I corresponded with an admissions counselor who told me that the faculty will be contacting only those students who they are interested in admitting (at least for NMW/FNP). Hoping for the best.

    Hi Ash!
    I’m torn! I have a good friend in Nashville, and I also got the impression from the interview that it would not be a waste to attend J …but, it is a pricey plane ticket, and my boyfriend could not come, so we would have to make another trip later on to find housing… I should probably just bite the bullet and do it =) It’s just stressful while my financial future is up in the air! Where are you coming from? My boyfriend is a musician too, if we get in maybe they can hang out while we study!

    Hey Sarah!
    I totally know how you feel. We're both stressing about finances and would also be taking another trip down to find housing later if Vanderbilt is where I end up. I'm coming from Boston, so tickets are a little pricey as well. But I think it'll be worth it to know how I feel about the city and the school if by some stroke of luck I end up getting in to one of the Boston schools I applied to as well and have to make a decision. So where are you and your boyfriend coming from??

    Totally feel you on that, Ash =) I'd love to have choices, but it will make the decision much more complicated! We are from Seattle. I'm from the Midwest originally, but boyfriend has been here forever, so he is freaking out a wee bit about relocating, afraid he will wind up alone for 2 years with me, my books, and my propensity to over-share Poor guy!
