Hello everyone. I'm new to allnurses.com and I just wanted to say congrats to those who got into the 2012 UCF nursing program this summer. I am a prenursing student at UCF as I am still working on a few prerequisites before I... Read More

    I have not gotten an interview invite yet either and will be calling them to verify. Honestly I believe my GPA and TEAS is aligned with those that I've seen mentioned on here that got interviews. They have nothing else to really base a decision on and since they made a mistake once telling several of us we were not candidates due to communication problems I pray that is again the issue. I can not fathom not beining invited for an interview. If some of you don't mind who got interviews what was your cum, pre-req GPA's and TEAS scores? Is there something else I am forgetting that they could look at? Supposedly they don't care what your first degree was in!?!?
    I'm sorry to hear that. I think it's a good idea to call tomorrow and verify. I'm also hoping that perhaps they haven't sent out all the invitations yet and they will finish this process this week.

    My stats:

    Cum GPA: 3.91
    Prereq GPA: 4.0
    Teas: 86

    What were yours?
  2. 0
    Teas-92
    Cum gpa 3.5 (they don't count grad)
    Pre-req-4.0
    Undergrad- Psych
    Masters- Counseling w/ professional licensure for rehab.

    I hope it was a mistake- good luck with the phone call. My fingers are crossed for you.

    See not far off. I'm still hoping for the best but at the same time I trust God's plan in all this and perhaps he thinks the basic program is better for me. I know there are a lot more applicants there but I also like to think that those of us who have degrees behind us might be better candidates there than the first time crowd. I like the idea of a slightly lesser load but hate the thought of it starting a semester later and taking a semester longer!
    I feel like they should have done all the inviting by now since you guys are to start calling to "book" appts in the morning. Unless they start inviting an afternoon crowd now and that is why were are only 24-36 interviewee spots. Perhaps they don't realize threads like this exist so we know people are invited and the rest of us are bumming about it!

    How are you computing 24-36? There is an interview every hour from 9-12pm. The email said that the interviews will be conducted in groups of 4-6 candidates. That would mean 4x6(max) which 24, however, this wouldn't make any sense for CON because there are 60 seats in ABSN. This means that there will most likely be multiple groups of 4-6 candidates at each hour.

    Anyways. I'm going to keep your in my prayers tonight. Good luck and let us know what they said.

    Btw, I'm planning on asking tomorrow about the number of candidates that will be interviewed on 03/22. Hopefully we'll get some answers this way.

    a) Re: Interview spots and times, Keep in mind those of us on this thread could only be a small percentage of those who applied, that is, I'm sure there are other applicants who have not discovered AllNurses.com.

    b) My stats were lower than yours, in all 3 categories, so you definitely sound Interview-worthy.

    I wish you good luck on your call.

    Our stats are almost identical.

    3.5 GPA
    3.8 prereq GPA

    Hopefully it was just another miscommunication. Good luck!

    I'll be arriving at 8:30/9am interview.

    So, I asked how many candidates are going to be interviewed on 03/22. They said about a 100.
    So yeah, definitely multiple groups of 4-6 at four different time slots.

    I chose 9am interview because I figured the earlier the better, and the feeling of having it behind me will awesome. I will be able to move on with my day.
