    Hi guys. I'm new to this forum and all the information posted have been extremely helpful. Does anyone know how the waitlist works? Do you know if they have contacted everyone for interview even if they are on the waitlist?

    So they said we should hear any final decisions within the next two weeks. So I guess it's just a waiting game for many of us who already went for their interviews. good luck everyone! i'd like to hear any updates as to who gets into the program!!

    Hey all I just wanted to give a heads up, I got in and was notified via phone....I can't wait to meet you all this year or next! I hope we can carry over this supportive energy.

    Good luck to all, and if this isn't your year don't take it too hard (I know it upsetting), next years apps are soon!!!!!

    I am abroad, so I got an Email that I have also been accepted to the Public Health Nursing program. Very Excited! It's a great program with a fantastic focus. I got all As in the Pre-req except for Anatomy. I will finish up soon but will have As. If any one has questions, just ask. Cheers

    Hi Eriggirl:

    I got it Thursday night pretty late. It looks like they wrote it at around 6pm or after Hawaii time. I was in contact with Erik Anderson and he may have only been doing me a favor, so I wouldn't get worried yet if you've not been contacted. I explained to him that I have been abroad for 5 months and the mail will go to my Mother's address and takes forever as we are from a very small town (pop 100) in the midwest. I asked if there was any way to know once mailings were sent out so I could sort things out with other schools. So, the Email was from him and it may have been just being nice, though letters I think are going out in the next couple weeks, as he mentioned that in the same Email. So I would just not worry to much as perhaps those with special circumstances are being told a bit early. If you do make any contact, just don't mention anything about me or my post name personally as I don't want to be the one to cause a phone uproar. That would be ugly. Just ask if any news has gone out (or something like that) in a general tone. Thanks
