    Yes look for me fore sure. I'll look for you as well. The application guy told me that by now usually he has called at LEAST alternate number 3. But we haven't heard a peep. But everyone has to have their stuff (shots, background, insurance) in by November 30th, so maybe after that date we will see some drops. Also he told me that he has seen people literally quit after going to orientation, like leaving in the middle of it. He said we might find out while we are there! I hope so. I was hoping to hear by thanksgiving but it may be December. I'm going to go ahead and enroll in Microbiology and statistics. But I can drop once the call comes. I agree, I need to figure out a childcare schedule for next semester and it's hard when you aren't sure what that schedule will be. I'm so glad I at least know who #2 is. Once you get the call you have to post it! Then I will really be on pins and needles! lol!

    Omg that worries me even more that he said that!! with everyone being so positive I have been planning on getting in but now I am really not that optimistic about it! that would relieve so much stress if we found out on orientation...I too need to make daycare and financial plans soooon I am freakin out! I will most definently post as I'm on the phone call if and when they call!!! I wish we knew who alternate 1 was.

    I emailed admissions today to see if alternate 1 had been called and he said that he did call alternate one but he just doesn't have people declining like previous semesters!! Grrr just my luck the only semester that people don't decline I get alternate number 2! I hate this!

    That's what I'm worried about too. But the good news is you're next! It's a long way until January 22nd and anyways, I think they may hold spots for current students who maybe won't make it to NPII but if they do end up making it and moving on, then those spots will go to us. Don't loose hope! I had a dream last night that you posted you got the call! I was so happy because it meant I was next lol!! That's how much i've been thinking about this! I need to relax but it's hard. You are next and that's very good news for both of us.

    thats great that you got your call! let me know how today goes! if anyone just gets up and walks out, like I have heard some do! lol. Im alternate #15 and I know that its a long shot, especially as its getting closer and closer and so few have been called, but I expect things come up and maybe... JUST MAYBE... I could get a call in January at the latest. Not going to be bummed if I dont as Im already planning other ways, but let me know how that meeting goes!

    I just wanted to say Good Luck to everyone today!! You guys should all be at the Orientation!! I am a student in NP1 going into NP2 and our class is almost half alternates that got called in at the last minute. If memory serves me right, they called in as many as 30 alternates. There is HOPE in other words. It's a great school and the professors are wonderful. They really want you to be successful.
