    I found out today I got offered a spot in the CU traditional program. I am definitely grateful and relieved ... but also pretty bummed, because I really wanted the accelerated program. I had a good interview, have (nearly) a 4.0 GPA, plus 10 yrs healthcare experience. The only thing I didn't have was a Master's degree. Best of luck to everyone still waiting. I am not sure where to go from here yet...

    I received my letter yesterday! It was dated 11/19, but didn't reach CA til 11/26. I applied to the accelerated, but was offered traditional. I'm a little bummed, but being offered a spot in the traditional is a huge relief and definitely better than waiting another year to apply! Congrats to everyone for getting in!

    So I got the letter yesterday that I was rejected. I still can't believe it. During the last accelerated cycle I was call listed (alternate) and they were only accepting for 36 spots and interviewed 100. This time they interviewed 300 and were accepting for 186 spots. I also thought my interview went better this time because I felt better prepared for the types of questions they would ask.

    My overall GPA is 3.9 and I have a 4.0 in my prerequisites. The only thing that I can think of is that my interview did not go as well as I thought it did. At least I had already signed up for Pathophysiology as a backup plan for spring, so I can apply to at least 3 schools (CU, Publeo, and Metro State) next fall. Still, it is rather discouraging. Maybe the 3rd time will be the charm! And with 3 schools I should be able to be accepted somewhere.

    Oh, and though I do not have a job in healthcare, I have been volunteering at a local emergency department since this February and have over 130 hours of volunteer time. I tried to relate my experiences with patients in the interview. I'm not quite sure where my application went wrong.

    I'm so sorry for your disappointment. That is really baffling with your credentials. My guess is that they assigned numerical scores to our GPAs, essays, and interviews, and then ranked us. I hope you keep trying. (hugs)
