    I had my interview two weeks ago, it was also with Dr. Monturo- a very nice lady! The main question was why and when you decided you want to be a nurse. The rest of the interview we went over info about the program which was very useful! Also, if you have a C in some course you will be asked why you got it! I'm sure you will do well!

    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering when you sent in your apps, because I sent it in early October, and I haven't heard anything back yet.

    I sent in apps very early, and I got a reply in 3 weeks! However, I sent my app, transcripts, essay etc. everything in one envelope, and the money order for $35.00 I think in different envelope to Bursar office the same day!So if you did everything correctly, I'm sure you will get a reply soon! if you have any questions, you can always call! They are really good giving out info over the phone! good luck!

    To jjnurse2011! I got a letter in a mail saying that i need to schedule interview, and there were dates to chose from!My interview was october 21st, and I sent apps Oct 3-5, so it didn't take long, but I sent my stuff by priority mail! Listen, just call them to know for sure, rather then wait! i know how you feel, because waiting is torturing me also!

    Same here. I mailed it almost immediately after Oct 1 - probably either the 2nd or 3rd. Then, I received a letter in the mail asking me to call to set up an interview. Mine was Oct 25. I'm still waiting to hear back though.
    I would also recommend e-mailing or calling. Sometimes being persistent pays off and makes you stand out!

    I interviewed with Dr. Mackay and it was more of an info session than an interview. The only question she asked me was when did u know u wanted to be a nurse. After that it was just an overview of the program and any questions I had. She did tell me they have already received over 400 applications. I do not know how many will end up in the class. The only question I forgot to ask her was the schedule for the summer. Is it everyday M-F or just a few days a week?
