    Hey guys, I'm going on March first as well. My name is Joe (no kidding, right?), from Florida. I'm tall, come say hey! Also, how are you guys prepping for the interview? Does anyone have stats on the acceptance or rejection rate based off of this interview? What do you guys think the group interview process will be like?

    Hey Joe, where in Florida are you from? Where did you do your undergrad at?

    Duke Days was fun. I got to meet a lot of great people. The only disappointment was that they didn't tell us much about the admissions process and how they decide. But lunch with current students was way informative, the group interview is fun, the faculty interview is short and painless and the presentations are informative.

    Hey hopefulnurse 24,

    I'm from Fort Lauderdale. HS at St. Thomas Aquinas. Undergrad at FSU. Did all my nursing sciences at FAU and Miami-Dade College North Campus. Bit nerve racking going into the interview, any advice?

    Oh ok, I go to UF! Go Gators Don't be nervous, just be yourself! Our group had about 50 people there, I would say. Yours will probably have about the same (let us know if not!). It's not a nerve wracking day at all! You'll be fine.

    They had us fill out a post-Duke Days survey. I'm curious to see if thy change anything based on our feedback. So report back on how it is please.
