I definitely know what you mean. So much time and effort has been put in to everything we have done in the last two years just for this very interview. I talked to a friend about it and her words really helped me out. She told me that if it's meant to be it will be. All we can do is prepare ourselves and let the rest fall into place.
Good luck on your interviews, everyone
- 1Okay Ladies and Gentlemen:
I was able to get more information on the interview/entire application process via an information session. If anyone has not been to one of these, I suggest finding one and attending because they have changed the application requirements for all the future applications (not ours, we were judged based on old requirements) and you will really gain some insight as to just how competitive this program is and why. Here's the information about the interviews:
Approx. 300 applicants applied for Cocoa & Daytona campuses (combined)
Of those 300, only approx 163 were even eligible to apply to the program.
Of those 163, 144 applicants were selected for interview.
There are 72 spots total for both campuses combined (36 each).
This means we have a 50% chance of getting in immediately, and a 50% chance of getting in the waitpool. For those who are in the waitpool, if you don't hear anything From CON after Dec. 25, you are most likely not getting into the program starting Jan. 2013. The interview however, is equally weighted with all the other areas (TEAS, GPAs) and after the interview, candidates will be re-evaluated and re-scored with their interview score incorporated. Then the CON will determine who is accepted vs. waitpooled. I know it might be disheartening to see these numbers, but I wanted everyone to get a realistic perspective on what chances we have. As always, best of luck to everyone!
