Don't worry too much
- I'm sure you'll hear something very soon. You can always call Stacey Boatright - she's incredibly helpful. Did you go down to Portland for an interview or did you do yours over the phone?
I was concerned about hearing from Portland so early for the same reasons as you. I really want to go there but I didn't want to make any final decisions until I'd heard from everywhere else I applied. The really nice thing is that they don't require any sort of deposit/commitment until early March. I guess they realize that no one else sends out their letters until the spring but they at least want to give you peace of mind about your status with them. It certainly takes the pressure off with other schools. I also applied to UC San Francisco's MEPN program and Pacific Lutheran's (Tacoma) Entry-Level MSN program - where else did you apply?
And if you don't mind my asking, what is your background (previous education, jobs, age, etc.?). I did a phone interview so I didn't meet any of the other applicants and I'm trying to get a feel for who my potential classmates might be.
