I'm starting to freak out writing this $100 check! I want to do this SO bad, but I have no L&D experience (I've been trying so hard to get a job there!) Just being a charge nurse in subacute care for 1.5 years. I had a GPA higher than 3.0 at my graduation. So I do meet the requirements...
It just seems too good to be true because of how badly I want to be a CNM. So has anyone ever NOT been accepted to Frontier? I don't mean wait listed, I just mean NOT accepted. I think I have read one person say that on here, but didn't give reasons.
I just want to know the chances I guess.

Oh whoops..just saw your note arayrn...well this is what I started to write..perhaps it will help Wendilee or someone else new applying..
I'm not sure. I think I too read one without an explanation on here. But I just wanted to say that they don't care if you have L&D. The majority of accepted students do not. Its very hard to get into L&D these days and they know that. Plus, the midwives in the admissions committee must also recognize that nursing is not necessary to become a midwife as I had no nursing experience. 5 years of doula/CBE work and I was accepted.
I was told by someone in admissions that essays and letters of recommendations count for a lot. Every part of your application counts for points and if you get enough points- above the 'passing number' (not sure exactly how many)- you WILL be accepted either to the class you applied or the next one. If you don't score enough points, you wont be accepted and something about your app packet would have to change before reapplying.
So try not worry about your experience. Make sure that you're really happy with your essays- have several people critique them. If you are, remember it's the overall picture. Good luck!
