I just found this thread! I applied to the Columbia ETP program and in the process of applying to other schools as well. I've spoken to a lot of NPs and there are different views. Basically people say that NP's that enter as a direct entry may have a hard time if their program is not CLINICALLY based. It's also dependent on where clinicals are, and how much it relates to the job you are applying for. The rotations have a lot more weight on them than a student who is getting an RN and doing rotations.
So it really is luck I think. You never really know..I've kind of pushed that thought in the back of my head and not dwell. I'm just happy on moving onto the next step in my life
What other schools are you applying to? anyone else??

I've already called the office twice this week- can someone else call and find out?

I actually asked them about this today when I called about a different issue! They said we'll all get our answers at the same time regardless. Priority just means the completed apps will be read first but that doesn't mean acceptance is now on a rolling basis. Hope that helps!
- 0Oct 12, '12 by nymaluyeaa as far as ive heard it priority doesnt really mean much. they've explicitly stated that everyone will be finding out in feb regardless of when you apply. so i cant imagine how it would be really beneficial. now im debating whether I should just take the extra few weeks and make sure my application is solid instead of rushing it in.
