    That is pretty standard.....about the science pre-reqs. I've usually seen them accepted for only 5 or 7 years though. Things change so fast with research -

    Don't go to Yale
    Please explain. Did you have a substandard experience at Yale or do you simply not like the color blue?

    Not to worry - I get cranky too sometimes. That said, if you were looking at Yale and did the now "optional" prereqs I wouldn't get to cranky, the can only help you and wasn't Anatomy fun?

    With respect to UW - you may want to email them and ask. I looked at the website and got the sense that only FNP was going to a doctorate.

    <P>I'm doing the MEPN Psych for UW right now. So far it is only the FNP for the doctorate but I do belive next year the Psych will be added to the doctorate.&nbsp; Nevertheless, I believe the Psych track will still be available for the MEPN as well.</P>

    That's great to hear. I'm really interested in their acute care track.
    How was the UW interview process? I know they do group interviews. What kinds of questions did they ask?

    The Whole interview process was pretty bad! It was a 2 hour long interview. I had a second individual interview after the group one. I dont know if the acute care track has a second interview in addition to the group interview. The questions vary each year according to the cohort before mine. They always ask a senario question however. If your in Seattle I would definitely recommend going to an info session.

    I can tell you right now, that four weeks into the quarter has been extremely stressful. A lot of my classmates are on edge and some days I don't know what I got myself into! If you have any specific questions feel free to PM. It might take kind of long for a response but I will definitely get back to you.
