    Gosh, I want to, but don't know what to say! haha Since I just called the other day...I wouldn't know what else to ask? When might other acceptances go out? Are they still doing interviews? Act like I haven't had one?

    Why am I so impatient?!?!

    Hello, I am a little late to the game here. I interviewed on Feb 20th, and have heard nothing. I have been reading this forum for awhile now and it is stressing me out!! Another interview date?! When I asked on the 20th she said the last interview was going to be that saturday! I have a question for everyone though. I have been denied from CSULB, CSUS, and CSUC before this round. This round I applied to Western U, CSUSM, CSUSF and CSUB. I have a "C" in anatomy so I am not qualified for many schools because of the 3.0gpa in sciences requirement. It is really frustrating to me because I feel like I am not getting in just because of one C. Most of you probably have way better grades than me but I just feel like I am never going to get in. It has been a 3 year process already and I am so sick of waiting around, I want to be a nurse already! Does anyone know anywhere else I can apply to with my grades?

    p.s. Sorry for the rant.

    I'm impatient too!!! And I can't help but feel hurt after finding out they are doing more interviews. That definitely doesn't help the situation.

    cp0710 I think nearly all schools require a 3.0 GPA, but if you are not interested in re-taking any science courses, you could potentially apply to ADN (community college) nursing programs and use the 2 yrs of nursing courses to boost your GPA, then apply to a BSN or MSN program after. Most ADN programs select students through a lottery system so as long as you meet the minimum requirements, you can be entered in the lottery. If you have to go that route, at least you will be working towards your goal of being a nurse without repeating courses you have already taken. Hope that helps a little

    The community colleges around me all have the 3.0 science gpa requirement. It is really frustrating. I do not want to retake a class I have already taken. Maybe that is just what I have to do, suck it up. I feel so very discouraged.

    Gah! I called again, but am not sure who I talked to. She wasn't as nice as the one I spoke to earlier this week. I asked again if all of the acceptances have gone out, she said no again (GOOD NEWS!). I also asked when we might expect to hear more acceptances and she wasn't able to answer that. I also told her I had heard they were extending more interview invites and she didn't know anything about that. She started to warm up a little and said she understood where we are coming from. I asked her if the possibility of more interviews is negative for us and she didn't seem to think so. She also suggested I email DM (hopefully you get who that is) and voice my concerns that way.

    So, my guess is that we won't hear anything else before the weekend seeing how it is Friday afternoon. Maybe like Ceci said, they will send something out next Tuesday? But I am still concerned about the additional interviews. I can't help but feel inadequate!

    Anyway, I hope that everyone has a good weekend!

    I couldn't agree more!! My husband thinks they may be doing it for ranking statistics since they include how many people interviewed / accepted offer / rejected offer and so on. For some reason, I feel that since they doubled in people applying for the program this year that they have more candidates to cherry pick from. Either way, it's frustrating! I know it makes me question if I was not a good enough candidate for their school. UGH!!! I need to stop over analyzing everything!

    Oh Wow!!! Thanks BeesMama for making that call and for keeping us informed!!! It totally makes me feel better!! I completely agree with Ceci81, I have a feeling we will be getting some news on Tuesday.

    With regards the new interviews, I've only heard one person mention that they got an interview offered on March 21st. Has anyone else heard of anyone else getting an interview for this month?


    Enjoy your weekend everyone!

    I've seen two people now that received a rejection and then an invite. Both people said that admissions said it was a mistake and they'd like them to come for an interview. So I suppose we wait and see! DM will be back in the office Monday so I plan on calling (again) haha

    BeesMama: I don't know why, but for some reason I find it a bit difficult accepting the fact that more people are getting interview!! But I guess we will never know! hahaha!!

    I appreciate your persistence on getting more info.!! Thank you!! I guess is just a matter of waiting until next week!!
