    For neonatal, the specialy course is a year full time. But they only offer it every other year so it needs to be timed right...

    I applied in October, and didn't get a call till last week.

    I'm getting nervous/stressed. I still haven't gotten an interview for Northeastern Does that mean that I probably got rejected? I talked to Janet a couple weeks ago and she seemed so nice and interested I was sure someone would've called me for this weekend. Does anyone know if this weekend was the last chance? I'm still waiting for a few more schools but I love Northeastern!

    I applied and got everything in about a week or 2 before the deadline (Jan 15) and I still haven't heard yet either. I just havn't really stressed since I already got into BC and Yale (my two top choices). I wouldn't be too worried about it- I'm sure they are still getting in touch with people for interviews.

    congrats to everyone for the acceptances!

    Ya, I applied about a week before the deadline too and haven't heard anything either. I wouldn't worry about it, it seems like the applications are reviewed on a rolling basis!

    Ah! I feel so much better! Thanks guys! And that makes sense too about the rolling admission seeing as I submitted my application in late December, so only a few weeks before the deadline. I got rejected from BC (not my first choice, but still...) and I thought I was a pretty good candidate (strong pre-reqs, volunteer/patient experience, etc), so I've been feeling some pretty strong rejection blues seeing as I haven't heard from anyone else yet.

    I guess I panicked when I heard that a lot of people were hearing from Northeastern and I hadn't even had an interview yet. But as I said I now feel so much better. Thank you!! :heartbeat

    When did you hear from BC? I find it strange that I haven't heard anything from them either way. I'm not too concerned (I'm already in at Yale and Columbia), but it irks me that they haven't communicated with me at all, I wasn't under the impression they did rolling reviews (though, I also didn't realize U Rochester and Northeastern did, so I think maybe schools just don't spell this out on their websites).

    I heard from BC quite a while ago (almost a month ago I believe) and I do not think that they have rolling admission, so you might want to call them. I also (haha obviously) did not realize that Northeastern had rolling admission. I kind of wish they did spell that out because I would have done my application earlier and would probably know my status by now!

    I'm not from there either, but I spent about a month there last year and also loved it! Beautiful, inexpensive, food was generally good, water was drinkable... Such a wonderful place~

    does anyone know when you start clinicals at northeastern? is it the first semester or in the first year?
  13. by   Redsox17
    pretty sure every NU starts clinicals right away. Have you decided between Yale and BC yet? I'm interested to hear what your decision was! Can't really go wrong with those two!
