    No news here either. The wait is killing me. Two of my friends are currently in the program. If you're in state it's actually about 10,000 per semester. First year of MEPN comes w/ 3 semesters so equate about 30k/year. They said all they got were loans for the first semester and a little bit of help in the second semester. Once you have the GPAs in the system you can apply for scholarships. In terms of the curriculum, they said first semester was pretty intense because they had pharm and patho together. Second semester was manageable. Overall, they like the program and said clinical has been fun. Last year they had 100 applicants but GRE was required, accepted 32 students. I don't know what the statistics are this year. I think our main communicator so far has been Erik. Well I am shooting for ANP, good luck everyone. They got their interview invitations by phone some time late Feb I think. Acceptance was around late March or April.

    Besides why nursing, you be asked give a situation when you handle a problem. Why this specialty? How do you prioritize? Why this program vs. traditional? What is your second choice? What are some strengths you'll bring to the program?
