    I'm still waiting to hear back from these guys. Was told I would hear back from May 1 "at the latest".....

    Did you guys hear by email or by letter?

    Hi Gobbstopper! Are you waiting for the interview invite or for a final decision? Regardless, I heard from them via e-mail on both occasions. I know they had a lot of applications this year since it was the first time they used the NursingCAS system. They also had to focus on the FACT program first, since that starts in a couple weeks, and I got the impression it took them longer to get through those applications. Trust me, I know that the wait SUCKS. Have you talked to the admissions office lately? If not, maybe you can give them a call and see if they have any answers. Tell them you were promised an answer by May 1st. Be persistent, but polite (obviously, lol). Hopefully you'll get good news soon! Let me know if you have any questions. :-)

    I'm waiting for any decision at all. I called today, and the woman that answered took my name and phone number so that the admissions secretary could call me back, since she was at lunch. Hopefully I'll find out soon! They'll probably call me at work though.... I hope I see the call so I can answer :icon_roll

    Yes, definitely call again today! Tell them you were supposed to receive a call back last week and never did. Hopefully they'll be able to give you an answer today!

    If it makes you feel better, I know that Niki Kelley, in charge of admissions, is out of the office until tomorrow according to her email signature! Just be persistent. Kindly persistent!

    I received a phone call from Niki last week inviting me for an interview and was caught totally off guard, so there is still hope for those of us waiting for a decision! I am so excited and nervous as this is my first choice school. I put a deposit down for Drexel's ACE program since I hadn't heard back from Jefferson but I'm really really hoping for Jefferson!

    Congrats everyone! How are you all doing on the pre-matriculation requirements?

    I feel like I'm nearing the finish line. My security clearances are in, I've turned in all the medical stuff (except for my last HepB injection), and I just did my CPR training on Father's Day so I have my two-year card now. I'm really looking forward to starting in September!

    I'm feeling the same way! All of my background check requirements are finally finished (the fingerprints took almost 9 weeks). I submitted my medical records about a week ago and am just waiting for them to come off my "administrative holds" list. And I did my CPR training at the beginning of the month, so that's good to go, too. I have 3 weeks left in my last prereq class (Microbiology)...once that's over, I don't think there will be much left to do at all! I can't wait to finally start the program!
