    I like this. Lemme look for a red pen. Lol
    I had to call 3x. The first two times were busy.

    And don't you mean 3 red pens?

    You know I was even thinking today before my red pen idea, almost wanted to suggest a super early morning breakfast for everyone nearby campus... but I'm afraid the timing would be too rushed. I'd say we could all do something after, however I (and others I'm sure) may need to return to work and/or class.

    Just by blogging with you all on here, I feel like we are going to make a pretty amazing cohort.
    I felt the same way (felt like a "family" already) with the thread from my Spring 2013 school that I almost went to in Tampa but got denied due to a transcript issue. But it's okay, I later realized that was a blessing in disguise since it granted me the opportunity to apply to UCF's ABSN program.

    I don't have any red pens, but I do have a red market...does that count?

    Interview time secure... I called at 8:03am. I will see some of you for the 9am Interview.

    By the way I was wondering, would anyone else be interested in everyone having a (subtle) way of identifying fellow Interviewees from this thread on Interview day? (Since we are just a portion of the 100 or so) For example, we could each carry 3 red pens in the open, I was thinking. To the average person outside of this thread that would be just a coincidence, seeing multiple people with red pens. But to those of us on this thread, it could help ease introductions before we enter our Interview room, e.g. say 3 of us run into each other on the elevator, or in the main lobby, etc?

    Just curious... if not, no biggie.

    Sure, a marker could count, but it needs to be 3, just held in the palm of your hand or whatever once you are walking in the building, and throughout the building all the way until we sit down in the Interview rooms. Holding one pen is just too casual and could be mistaken for normalcy by anyone. Two is somewhat unusual but not 100% distinct; 3 is out of the ordinary, to the point where that could be definitive evidence for everyone on this thread to help identify each other, which is the whole purpose of the red pen idea in the first place. In my humble opinion....

    Hence, that is my reasoning for 3. That is all.

    Lol
    Let the looking for 3 red pens adventure begin.
    If I can't find any, I'll buy them.

    Meeting others after interviews are done would be awesome. I'm not planning on doing anything after the interview. I'm making myself unavailable to school or whatever. However, I realize that some of you have things to tend too.

    Are we allowed to bring anyone with us. I mean not to the interview of course. Lol but to be there with us before or after the interview.

    I just had a thought-- instead of a super early breakfast for all... lunch for all at someplace nearby? Only thing is:
    a) It would have to be no earlier than 1:30pm, to allow all of the 12pm Interviewees to get out (they said 45 min max for interviews) and have travel time to a TBD location...
    b) Normally I'm all about "the more the merrier" but if you all were down for this, we could be a group of 10, if not 15, or 20... and that could be tough to seat us at TBD location. Unless it was say, something quick, (e.g. 5 Guys at Waterford, Panda Express, etc) where we could all mingle more freely among everyone there.

    Oh hell, I'm getting too far ahead of myself, right? What can I say, I am eager for the 22nd!

    What is everyone wearing for the interview? Are you wearing a suit or a nice blouse and dress pants? I just bought nice dress pants and a silk long sleeve top. I tried on a suit and felt way to formal. I am not a person that an pull off a suit well!

    You guys are a trip! And pretty creative. I'll see if I can find a red pen, or 3. I'll be unable to join for either meal, since I'm heading out for a family camping trip that afternoon and I need every second in the morning! :-)
    I'll have a black file bag with a colorful scarf around the handle. It's my interview good luck charm. Skirt suit. I'm kinda "thick" (muscular!) With short brown hair. I'll try to be there between 8 and 8:15.
