USD MEPN Interview tips?? - page 4

The interview is in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers. I know the current students are probably too busy to respond to this, but any help would be greatly... Read More

    Hi suiteums! I have not received anything yet. I called though and they said that no one will hear back until Jan. Did you apply? If so, have you received anything? I'm so anxious to know!!!!! :heartbeat

    Oh Lord, there IS somebody out there that applied! OMG I'm so anxious. I just finished my in progress prereqs and called to let them know I'll be sending an updated official transcript and the girl said they already started sending letters out :heartbeat. Earlier posts on this thread (2009) has applicants saying they were accepted for interview and the post dates are 12/23-12/24. Aggghhhhhh! I didn't get an email and I was told letters would be going out beginning of Jan, so maybe they changed procedure? This whole applying thing is making me crazy! Hey, maybe we're the only ones that applied. If so, we'll be shoe ins for the program. LOL.

    Ha! I've been fantasizing about the same thing (being one of the only ones who applied). Although, one of the girls in the office said that this year they didn't receive as many applicants as they usually do

    Good luck to you!! Keep me posted as soon as you hear something and I'll do the same.

    Hmmmm another poster said the lady @ another school said apps are down too. Maybe it's a trend? That would be nice. K, keep in touch!

    You're currently at USD? If you were at any of the open houses I've probably met you, Lord knows I've been to all of them since 2009!

    Hi. I did USD interviews last year. They are very friendly and try their best to not be intimidating. It is nerve - racking to be sure but you will all do fine. Just remember that you would not have gotten an interview if you were not a very strong applicant. Good luck!

    Hi Sandman2855. Thanks for the reassurance! Can you share any specifics about the interview process? What actually takes place at the group and individual interviews? Also, since we already have interviews, will the final selections be based on our interview performance or will they still consider the other factors such as GPA, GRE, etc...?

    Thanks again for your advice!!
