    Got my email this morning... excited to be moving to the next step.

    To answer everyone's questions to the best of my abilities:

    You really must attend the interview in person... they made a big deal about giving a few Skype interviews last time, but I heard that none of those were accepted. The application guidelines also said that the interview was mandatory. For the Spring 2013 start date that I first applied (accelerated only), it is my understanding that there were around 450 applicants, about 100 of us at the interview, and we were told that 35-45 would be accepted from that group. Not sure how many were actually accepted. The interview is NOT six hours... it is more like an info day with a 30-to-45-minute interview. We came in, signed in and picked up some info packets, and were corralled to the interviews in groups with a current student leading us. The interview was around 9 a.m., and included 4 prospective students, 1 current student, and 1 faculty member. The faculty member or current student would propose a question and the prospective students would go around in a circle, taking turns answering. The topics were all your standard school/job interview type questions. The rest of the day included a mock lecture, talks about financial aid, etc.

    Hope this helps! Feel free to throw out any more questions, I will try to answer.

    Hi everyone I also got an interview notice yesterday for UCD traditional bsn program. I'm kind of nervous for the interview. It would be helpful if anyone could give me an example of the type of questions they usually ask during the interview day.

    Congrats to everyone !!!

    Does anyone know if the prospective student portal (which shows your application status) become updated if you receive an interview e-mail or does it keep saying that your application is being reviewed?

    On my portal admission page it just says my application "is still being reviewed by the department and a decision will soon be made". I received an email yesterday for the interview and at midnight yesterday I logged in to my ucd portal and that's what it said.

    I've been so worried ever since I saw through this thread that people have already received invitations to interview. I still haven't heard anything, and now am starting to fear the worst.

    Is anyone else coming from out of town? Any recommendations on where to stay, what to do in Aurora? Thanks!

    Has anyone gotten an "application denied" response? Does lack of an invitation to interview equal rejection? I'm starting to get the feeling "I'll get nothing and like it".

    The original email about the interviews (before the invites were sent) said "[FONT=Bell MT]Only applicants invited to the interview day will be considered further for admission." :/

    Hi! I applied to the ABSN and received an interview invite for November 7th. I just received an email detailing interview day... Like a previous poster mentioned, it's a group interview, but with 5 applicants, a current student and one faculty member. It's scheduled for 50 minutes, followed by a mock lecture, tours, financial aid talk, etc.

    I also got an interview. Hopefully I do a better job interviewing this time, or at least do well enough to get on the call list again. Good luck to everyone!

    What is the "call list?"
  13. by   Colorado Hopeful
    It is basically the alternate list for that application period (in case everyone who was accepted does not attend).
