    Yes, don't have any room of doubt. Believe in yourself.

    Hi everyone, I received my interview invitation for 2/15 but I will probably be declining soon. I got into APU so I'd rather go there if I don't get accepted to UCLA. Any thoughts about western vs apu? If I decline, hopefully this opens an opportunity for someone else who is interested
    Hey sc24, I also got into APU (Summer 2013 Azusa Campus) and received an interview for Western on the 13th. I too was debating about the interview; however, I do know that Western is much more flexible compared to APU. You only need to be at Western for the first 2 years to take pre-reqs and after you get your RN license, you can return home and do rotations there. But APU does have a great program (they have so many choices, Adult NP, Neonatal NP, Family NP, etc.) but Western only has FNP so that's always something to consider. What semester and campus did you get into for APU?

    Hey all! Do you guys think they take into consideration whether an applicant has been on their alternate list in previous years?

    Ucefrain, I hope so considering all we've been through! For cryin out loud!! Haha I feel like the last year and a half of my life had been spent waiting and wondering. I definitely mentioned it in my personal statement, did you?? They at least HAVE to interview us again...right?!

    Rainkissed, I applied to last year's cohort. After being wait listed I felt so in limbo...do I apply to other schools? Take more pre req classes for other schools? Or will it be a waste of time (and money!) if I'm going to get a call at the last minute. It was extremely frustrating. So I applied again and will be applying to several other programs in the coming months....just in case!

    Hi all,

    I am trying to wait patiently and not call. :/ Do you guys think there will be other dates for interviews, I'm hoping so...

    Hi Hb3an,

    Thanks for the reply! I got into the Azusa main campus for fall 2013. You're right, Western is definitely flexible but cost is huge factor for me. APU is about half the cost of Western and the BSN portion is only 15 months long. I believe we can take a couple years off after our BSN and pursue the NP portion at our own pace. Although I would love to go to Western, it's just so expensive for me. Which campus did you get into? Good luck

    Blue, why didn't you apply to more universities last year when you applied to Western?
