    I would really like Trauma, but would be absolutely fine with working in the Adult ED, Neurological ICU, or Burn Unit. I have to wait to hear back first. Do you think they stay true to sending out the packet within 72 hours or do they send the packet much later?

    Does anyone know if they also consider you for other tracks than the one that you choose on the application? I would LOVE MICU but I think my previous experiences might be seen as better suited for a different ICU.

    Just waiting for one of my references to respond and then sending it...

    Are you guys from Tennessee or out of state? I'm hoping being out of state doesn't hurt our chances.

    ijwajok, from reading past threads it sounds like they do consider you for other tracks if you are not selected form the one you apply for. I think its all based off of the needs for the different units at the time they are hiring. Im sending mine in tonight!

    Im from Ohio. Where is everyone else from?

    Did you guys mention in your letter of intent other tracks you would be interested in then? Or do they just consider you for ones they think would be a good fit? So excited, I know the application closes on the 20th but I wonder when they will notify people about interviews?

    I said that my overall interest was critical care. My senior internship is in a Trauma ICU, but I said that my interest was in cardiac. And I think they notify about interviews a few weeks after applications close! I am extremely nervous though :/ My GPA is not that great, I have no volunteer or leadership experience. I do, however, have 8 years as a bartender/waitress, and I also participated in an externship this summer in an operating room. I'm afraid though that it won't be enough to get an interview. But seriously, good luck to all of you! Keep all of us updated on any info you receive!

    Has anyone received an email other than the confirmation email saying that your application packet has been received?

    Nope. I think the original packet email stated that we probably wouldn't hear anything about a potential interview for roughly 2 weeks or so after the application period closes on the 20th. I hope we all get an interview.
