Hello all! I noticed a thread had not been started for those of us applying for Fall of 2013 so I thought I would start one. How are things going for everything regarding the application process?... Read More

    I just received an interview for Psych. I feel truly honored...I can hardly believe it. For all those who did not get interviews, don't lose hope! There are many great schools out there. But if you have your heart set on YSN, you can always try again next year with more experience under you. I really believe that we will all end up where we belong.

    Hi bbcc,
    I just joined the site so it won't allow me to send a PM: therefore, hope you don't mind that I'm going to be a bit vague:

    GPA: ~3.4 from a top liberal arts college
    Prereqs: Of those required for other schools I applied to, I've completed all but one, GPA ~3.95
    GRE: over 95% in Verbal/Writing, over 80% in Quantitative
    Clinical experience: No live births, but I've done doula training and volunteered at a nursing home-type organization

    Thanks so much for sharing! If I apply again next year, I'll have more prereqs done (I'm at a 4.0 right now) and I'm planning to do doula training in the summer if I get in no where (I'm applying to two other schools for this year's cycle)

    CONGRATS on your interview (and everyone else's) - I forgot to mention that! I have a surprisingly large number of friends at Yale right now in various graduate capacities and they all seem to love it!

    Thank you bbcc, and best of luck to you (and everyone else!) I agree with atomicgirl that we will all end up where we belong in the end.

    No interview for me, and it stings!

    My stats were as follows:
    GPA: approx 3.5 (including post-graduate pre-req work)
    GRE: 95th %ile English, 60th %ile Math
    Volunteer Experience internationally in Surgery, plus (I thought) a compelling personal statement about oncology nursing in U.S.

    I'm still waiting to hear back from Columbia, but now I have some serious doubts about my viability as a candidate at ANY school...

    Don't give up, ARickli! I felt Yale was rather annoying with not publishing GRE scores or asking for prerequisites - to me they seemed the most "up in the air" - like, we can't know what they're looking for when they don't give us any information! I also agree that we'll all end up where we're supposed to; if we don't get in anywhere this year, it gives us more time to boost our stats (volunteering, certifications, etc.) Yale really emphasized underresourced populations in its application, so I'd suggest volunteering for a non-profit that serves them, even if it's not medical - then I would have had a better answer to that question, at least, although I thought I already did!
