    Hi cjdiaz,
    I didn't interview, but mainly because I really didn't have any questions. I found the info session to be incredible thorough and I had researched the program for a few years.
    I didn't take TEAS, but my gpa for both is around 3.2 ish. I'm hoping my volunteer experience will help since my grades haven't been straight A's. I've been volunteering for a few years at mgh and have been in a critical floor assisting families at bedside under direction of the nurse director. I also sent more recommendations than the required two. They have a tough job choosing people, I think credentials aside there's a bit of luck involved. Ill just keep applying if I'm not in this year
    Wow you have some great volunteer experience, Good Luck!! I agree there is definitely luck involved with all the people applying for minimum spots

    I took the Teas because my SAT scores were too old, my overall was 86.7%, math 96.7% and science 77.1%, not so good in science... My GPA is 3.61and I also interviewed. The interview was very laid back. Good luck everyone!! These nerves are killing me

    I got a phone call. It was a voicemail telling me the news! She mentioned that I'd be getting a lot more details in the mail, so I don't have much info yet. Don't know anything yet about $, hopefully soon.
