    Has anyone gone in and spoken to an advisor this week about the interview process ?

    I thought about it but Im not sure if its a good idea, what if they cant talk about it or really don't want to give someone an unfair advantage? Especially if they didn't really want to give out info on how many people got interviews and stuff. I wouldn't want to make them feel like I was too pushy... However maybe they will like a person more because they are taking initiative to find things out, and maybe they will think people that do that are really serious about the program... who knows? I have a friend who did go to an advisement session with Alton about 1 month before we got our emails to interview, and she asked him about the interview process and he told her that if you get an interview your more than likely going to get into the program. I don't wanna raise hopes up or claim this is the gospel truth or anything but it sure helps me sleep better at night. I think it all boils down to being professional and mature, and most importantly being yourself. Im sure as long as no one is mean or a total sociopath at the interview that were all gonna be fine.

    @laurenmalauren:

    Thanks for your encouragement! However, I am still sick to my stomach with nerves! It's 2 weeks away and I'm a hot-mess! I'm sure I'll be fine in the interview, I usually do fine in those settings, but it's so nerve-racking because I've worked so hard to get here and pushed myself so much... Anybody else with me?

    Yeah I got the same thing, I called and the lady at daon said it just means they've tried to get ahold of my old employer a few times but that they cant reach him. She said its no big deal and that some places will charge the school to verify if you ever worked there or not and that a lot of schools will not want to verify. Ill call UCF CON tomorrow but she said as long as it says no under the other things your fine

    HELP,

    Can someone explain to me how UCF general admissions Orientation works? There are several days I can choose for Daytona Campus , December 19th says BSN cohort, I take it that is for the actual class that will be starting in January,however, I just need to do general orientation for transfer students, should I just do it online then make an appointment with an advisor?
    i thought about this too, i called ucf and said i wanted to wait until after I am really accepted in the nursing program to then do the general orientation at ucf. she said that was a good idea and that i can do it online. so just hold on until nursing makes the final decision on who is getting in because the ucf orientation is 42 dollars

    Yes I spoke to certified via chat on this, they said it shows that because the employer wants to charge you for the infomation and UCF told certified not to process the infomation if it will cost the student additional costs. My company uses fax verification so I went ahead and make a request to put it for the fax, however, certified says, it does not matter to UCF, they only looking at the other areas.

    thanks for the info, my orientation is free because im an AA transfer student but it make sense to just wait. All of us are just anxious to start, but when we start we will be like "what have i done...arhhh"
