    I was definitely in panic mode when I got that email at 10am the other morning, but I jumped right on it and it was resolved just before lunchtime that same day.

    From what I understand, we'll receive an email telling us we have been selected (or not) for an interview, which is on March 22. Beyond that, I'm not sure of the timeline, but I believe within a week or so they send out acceptance and wait list emails. If you're accepted there's an orientation and immunizations, but I'm not sure what else.

    Good luck!

    DAK - I had a similar experience a couple weeks back, saying I didn't meet minimum requirements and after hours of back and forth got it resolved. I was a simple miscommunication from admissions but a total heart attack for me. I too have applied to both basic and accelerated and am praying for an interview. Found you guys googling to try to find some more info about the interviews but find nothing more than I already know. Need to find someone who's been through one which would be the newest basic class! I assume they will e-mail us regarding interviews. Has anyone found concrete info about what immunizations the nursing school itself requires? Just wondering what all I still have to get. Apparently immunizations when I was a kid were not what they are today!
    And I would love to know how many applicants that got for each program!

    Ya, wasn't even sure if we get an "or not" e-mail. It almost sounds like they will invite you for an interview or never contact you again. LOL But then I think they'll get lots of calls. Hopefully they let you know either way. I had also heard the decisions are out about a week after interviews and it looks like summer classes start May 13. That's why I'm wondering about immunizations. I will just pray that there is time to get them done and have them be "Effective" cause it looks like I never had polio vaccine and I have no proof of having had chicken pox, etc... Not like I saved my medical records from childhood and neither did the doctors!

    I know exactly what you're saying about immunization history. I immigrated to US and back in my country keeping a record of your medical history wasn't a priority back then.
    I can probably find some of them but this will most likely involve having it translated and notarized. I am slowly looking into the process of doing it, having faith of course that I will get in into the program.

    I'm getting more nervous now. Interview is in 3 weeks. That's is of course if I get invited.

    Have anybody started preparing for it yet?

    If you weren't vaccinated for certain things because you had the virus (like chicken pox), you just get a titer (blood drawn and tested for antibodies) done at your dr.'s office or clinic. I had to get a varicella titer for my CNA course because I was never vaccinated for chicken pox but had it as a child.

    I was hoping we would've heard today! Although I guess there's still time. Is the CON office open next week since it's spring break?

    If they were to release decisions about the interview candidates you would have been after 5 pm. So we still have time.
    I'm not sure about the CON being open next week. If they're closed they better release the news today.

    Glad to know there's still hope for today If they're closed next week, then they'd definitely have to let us know today, or one would hope!

    Campus offices are still open, so I think it'll be next week. I thought they would be closed, but website says open.

    Does anyone know how many people they invite to interview vs how many they actually accept?

    Acceptance is roughly 60. I don't know how many invitees there are, however.

    I think they invite double the number they will take but not sure

    I know about the titers but the costs really add up especially if u end up needing the vaccine anyway!! I need one vaccine just for manditory form so hoping for a comprehensive list from con so I can get it all done at once.

    9 days until the cutoff for the interview letters! And performance review time at work. Anxiety has taken on an entirely new level.
    I have started prepping for my interview by listing basic questions and answering them in the mirror. I use the STAR method ( situation, task, approach, and result) when answering behavioral questions. I need to practice reducing nervousness.
    And the vaccines, I too had spotty shot records, so I just got the titer.
