0Apr 2, '10 by JennacohI was considering on applying to the family health NP program... if you don't mind me asking, what was all of your experience/gre/gpa when applying to the program?
i think it's a reach for me, but i'll being applying at the end of the summer.
thanks and congrats to all of you!
0Apr 7, '10 by CatManCatManI 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.
0Apr 7, '10 by CatManCatManHi 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.
0Apr 7, '10 by tulip19I 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
0Apr 8, '10 by NursemidwifehopefulMy 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!
0Apr 8, '10 by Jeannie25Hi, 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!Last edit by Jeannie25 on Apr 8, '10 : Reason: typing error
0Apr 8, '10 by chirunMy 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
