I applied to Univ Cincinnati's FNP Distance Learning program for the Winter 2012 quarter - however, I was not accepted. My GPA is 3.4 and had strong references - I know that my goal statement wasn't very strong. I am still unsure as to what exactly the committee is wanting in such a statement. Any advice on writing the professional/personal goal statement is greatly appreciated. I really want to be accepted to this program and obviously was disappointed when I did not get in - but I know that everything happens for a reason - so I will just keep trying at UC and at other schools. Thanks in advance for your advice!
