I also do not have the stomach to check online. I guess I'll just wait for the mail...which may be a while since I live outside of Seattle. I am curious to those who get accepted and put on the waitlist. Do you get a thick envelop or a thin envelop? Could you guys let me know when you find out.
I'm very sorry to those who didn't make it, I definitly know how that feels (and I may end up in that boat too ) Don't give up on your dreams though...
I'm from Washington State, just outside of Seattle. The office told you that over 500 applied this year?!! Didn't think I could get anymore terrified, but there you go...
The addmissions page says that decisions have been mailed. Best of luck to all
No, they don't interview. They said they should get back to us the 3rd week of December
Hey all, I applied as well. I agree about the proctored essay being very easy. I chose the elderly patient myself. I was so nervous through it though. It was pretty encouraging that she said they went through the entire waitlist. @minnie she said that there were 48 slots & about 142 applied.
@macrina Did she say that we were supposed to get a preliminary letter saying that our app will or will not go through to the committee?
And now we wait. Seriously though, congrats & best of luck to everyone who applied! Also, thanks to all who answered questions for all of us these past few weeks. Fingers crossed
My goodness, it is crunch time isn't it?!!! I guess it's somewhat comforting that I'm not the only one who's scared as hell. This isn't the only one I'm applying to but it's the one that I want the most. My experience might sound like a lot, but I'm worried about the fact that I retook my prereques (because I was applying to another program that worked on a point system). The biggest problem that I am having with my personal statement is trying to figure out an answer for why I chose UCLA other than the location. I heard that we won't be able to get a decision until March!!! I'm not sure which is worse, having to wait to hear about this program or hearing back from another program in Seattle in the 3rd week of December (Happy Holidays, right? :/) Does anyone know what to do about the GRE section? I thought that wasn't required but it's on the application.
I didn't hear about the Long Beach program closing?! I wanted to apply there as a backup but I heard that they were not accepting any out of state applicants. I'm applying to Asuza, Concordia, and San Marcos as backups in California as well as several backups here in WA. My preference is CA though because I really want to move closer to my family. Out of curiosity to all of you in the CA area: What are your backups? I looked around for other schools, but since I don't know the area really well, it kind of limits my search.
I am unsure as well about the awards and distinctions section. I wrote a discertation (sp?) for my bachelors but I don't think that really counts. I'm probably going to be sending them a lengthy, pain-in-the neck type email asking about that kind of stuff specifically since we're now in the home stretch.
@Choe Sorry about mixing up the name. I have a bad tendency to skim . About my healthcare experience. I have been working at a local hospital on and off for about 5 years or so. I had a more committed stretch this summer when I worked in the ICU, I was able to average about 20 hours a week for 3 months. My major experience is kind of unusual because I got it as a 1st year nursing student at another program. I'm not going to mention names but I left the program because it was really bad (and I wanted at least a BSN). That's why I'm hoping to switch into a better program such as this. On the floor at my clinicals, I worked oncology, surgery, acute respiratory, and ortho. As part of school I also worked for three months in an assisted living center and have my CNA as a result. In clinicals I did many things from dressing changes, to administering medication and a bunch of other cool stuff. When I got my CNA license I was able to do CPR on patients which was intense, but I'm grateful for the experience. I am nervous about getting into this program because I have repeated courses in the past. In the program that I was originally in they did a points system so we were encouraged to repeat courses until we got 4.0s in as much as we could.
What are everybody else's stats on here. I'm really curious myself.
Hey guys, yeah this board is kind of dead. I was beginning to wonder if anyone was applying lol. I am working on my statement of purpose but am unsure of exactly what they are looking for. I know they want to know why we picked UCLA but I don't think the good location will really sound good on the essay I'm a Seattle girl but am looking to relocate with my family. Hopefully we succeed here. Only two more weeks! I can't believe it. I wasn't sure if healthcare experience helps, cause I have a bunch of it. Chloe: what did they mention about the statement of purpose specifically?
Haven been looking around and haven't really seen a topic on this yet. This is my dream school/program. I am from Seattle so I am having to get a lot of info from them long-distance instead of going to an information session. Has anyone gone to an information session yet?
