Yale GEPN Applicants 2013 - page 6

by JustD16

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 was so relieved when I was done with the essay!! good luck to everyone!

    hollysf, I was wondering the same thing..so if anyone knows that would be really helpful!

    I have a friend who applied to their PA program, and although it's pretty different she heard fairly early and her applications were due in aug-sept.

    hollysf - I looked at last year's thread, and they said about 50% of applicants get interviews, and the interview invites have gone out around December 15th the past two years. The number someone gave was 400 applicants, 200 interviews, 120 offers, and 90 matriculating, but that was before they eliminated one of the programs - I would think the ratios would be similar though

    My last recommender JUST submitted her letter - feels like I'm cutting it so close to the wire, even with the extension! But everything is in now, so it's just waiting (and working on my other apps)

    Thanks for the detail bbcc! I also read that they give out interview invites around mid December for interviews in January. I didn't know the exact numbers though. That means just less than two months until we find out though!

    Of those 120 offers, does anyone know what the breakdown is by specialty approximately? Do you think they have the same number of spots for each specialty every year? I'm applying to the psych specialty. I wonder how competitive that is. All I know is CNM is very competitive...

    Hey atomicgirl. I think most schools do not have a break down for each specialty, but I'm not 100% sure for Yale. They usually just have a certain amount of positions available in general for the accelerated BSN/RN portion. Across the board, I've heard CNM and FNP are the most competitive specialties out there. Pediatrics is probably next. Did you apply to OHSU? I know they only offer mental psych and CNM specialties and apparently they are very very competitive and they favor Oregon residents. Too bad I'm from California... and I don't live in super northern California where they have options you can choose from as residents of "neighboring" counties lol

    Hey kdiem, thanks for the reply. Yes I've heard that CNM and FNP are the most competitive across the board, but haven't heard much about psych. I'm from WA state and do plan on applying to OHSU but have held off on starting those apps as the deadline is later than other schools. I'm bummed to hear they favor Oregon residents though... Where else are you applying besides Yale and what is your specialty? A 30% acceptance rate doesn't sound too bad...unless all 400 of those applicants are stellar.

    I'm actually applying to 13 schools lol. I prefer not to state all 13...it's such a long list! But yanno the typical big name schools like UCSF, Penn, Hopkins, Columbia etc. Yeah OHSU favors Oregon residents for all of their programs (I think). My boyfriend applied there for medical school this cycle too and showed me a string of questions they asked whether he attended high school in Oregon, lived in Oregon, went to college there etc lol. But it's not impossible for non-Oregon residents because my cousin from California is there for their Pharm school! I'm applying to the midwifery program!

    Whoa good for you! That's smart cuz you know you'll get in at least somewhere, if not your top choices. I'm applying to 6, possibly 7. I was considering Columbia but I heard negative things about their program and with the high living costs...it wasn't worth it to me. What's your Bachelors degree in?? Mine's in psychology.

    I majored in Integrative Biology and minored in Asian American Studies. And that is my plan... get in at least one of those 13 schools!

    Hi there! I applied for the FNP specialty and am relieved to be finished with that essay! Here's some info as far as admission stats go. I emailed a few months ago and this is the reply I received:

    We receive about 400 applications (give or take) to our GEPN program each year. Last year we interviewed about 200 of those candidates and admitted about 130 (spread across the specialties) and we will be enrolling a class of about 80 students this fall. Some of the specialties are larger than others; for instance midwifery and family will likely enroll about 20 students each, while acute care will enroll about 10. This will vary from year to year, but family and midwifery are generally a bit larger. The applicant pool is generally the same each year give or take some small increases or decreases.

    Hope this helps, Cheers!
