    I had my interview and it was awful because I was really nervous; I felt like I was rambling. I think I gave the impression I'd be a really bad nurse as I couldn't even handle an interview without turning red. Does anybody have a sense of how important the interviews are?

    I was also told that we'd find out in 6 weeks, yet the website says notices will be sent between 4/20 and 4/30. Did anybody hear any thing corroborating either time frames?

    Good luck to everybody.

    Which specialty did you apply to?

    For PNP, I know that there were originally 46 applicants, and they offered interviews to 23. They are only accepting 4 students, so the interviews are crucial!

    So sorry to hear it didn't go well! Mine wasn't all that great either. Not horrible, but not awesome. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I don't know anything about the time frame.

    Hi MT56,

    As everybody has been telling me, I'm sure you did better than you think.

    I applied to adult/geri and I got an email saying they had 27 applicants for 7 to 8 spots, and they were doing interviews of 3 to 4 people between 9 and 12 (on monday), so that's 11 or 12 people interviewed for 7 to 8 spots... However, in the interview, a professor said that there were actually either 60 for 18 spots.

    I hope you're not in agony waiting. Again, best of luck.

    I applied to PNP and feel like my interview was awful too. Even though the interviewers were SO nice, I felt like I just couldn't get it together to come up with good answers because I was SO NERVOUS!!! My friends/family said the same thing, though, so hopefully they are right...hopefully we all did better than we think!?! Good luck to all

    My interviewer for nurse-midwifery was very nice as well....

    Does anyone else feel like they only said 10 percent of what they really wanted to tell the interviewer? I am glad to hear that this has been difficult for all of us

    To CatMan: I was told that we would hear back in the beginning of May, so maybe this means about 4 weeks?

    Good luck to anyone who has not interviewed yet!

    Hi, I interviewed for the adult/geri NP. It was less scary than I thought it would be but I also felt like I could have said more. My interviewers said that they were accepting between 7 to 8 applicants for this program; and that we should hear between 04/20-04/28. Good luck everyone!

    My interviewer was extremely nice as well! Hopefully that's a good sign? I thought my interview went well but I do realize that it's a very competitive program, I was told that they only accept 4-5 for WHNP. Also, my interviewer said they are going to go through all of the applications for WHNP/nurse midwifery next Wed and make final decisions...but then the decisions have to go through the Graduate College and get approved so that could take a few weeks. I guess these next few weeks will be a lesson in patience....good luck to everyone

    I also did not feel like I said everything I wanted to. Right now I'm doing my best not to over analyze and rethink everything I said. Overall though I felt it went well. I interviewed Monday the 5th for acute care and was told they were making decisions that day but the decisions needed approval so we wouldn't find out for a couple of weeks. So I know a decision has been made I just don't know what it is yet! so anxious to find out. Good luck to everyone!

    I interviewed for Adult/ Geriatric NP and feel the same way. The interviewers were very nice and it was a bit more informal than I expected. I hope I said enough. I'm with you on the not over-analyzing it and just trying to stay patient. Good luck to everyone!
