    I also estimated 36 And I thought handing out the powerpoints/plans of study was a good thing. I'm trying to stay positive, but I keep feeling like I should know already!!! Ill keep you posted if I hear something.

    I also applied for the part time program too. It is discouraging to keep checking with no change, but I am trying not to let that get me down. Hoping we are part of the 20 and that we will hear today. Fingers crossed! I will post as soon as I hear something too!

    I called the school right before they closed yesterday and was told that decisions would be out by Wednesday of next week.

    Wkirn-
    Thanks for the update! You sound like a great applicant, I am surprised you didn't get an interview too. Did you apply anywhere else?

    Hi roxxy--Thanks for the compliment! I did not apply anywhere else, but it will be okay if I don't get in. I may decide to apply to MD again and probably Hopkins as well which may be a bit more convenient for me. It's been a while (15 years) since I've been in school with the exception of a couple grad courses 12 years ago and I did not realize how competitive these programs have gotten. The only problem is that not getting in for the Fall will hold me up a full year since Hopkins only admits for the Fall and I think that the next available semester for MD will be the Fall of 2014 as well with the DNP conversion. I'm on a bit of a roll now with taking the Pharm course last Fall and currently finishing the Pathophys course at MD. I would of liked to continue on, but it's okay if not. I just have to figure out what held me from getting an interview. I will probably email the director of the program to get some insight once I get official notice.

    Maybe they sent out their decsions and are waiting for people to accept/decline and then have backups? My status online says "commitee ready" still. Roxy- have you heard from any of the other schools you applied to?

    I'm still hoping they haven't sent decisions out, especially since wkirn said they would have them out by Wednesday, so I am still hopeful. I actually didn't apply anywhere else. We just moved to the area so I will be applying to more schools next year if I don't get in this year. How about you? Did you apply anywhere else?

    Hopefully that's the case. This year I only applied to Maryland, it was my top choice & I live in the Baltimore area. I have always wanted to go back to school & am coming up on 3 years experience as a nurse. I don't know how I feel about the DNP option, I sort of feel like that's alot for NP, considering med school is only 3 years & PA school only 2. Anyways, keeping my fingers crossed for us!! If this year is not the year, I plan to apply to a few schools that still offer MSN programs next year.

    No, still committee ready. We have to hear something by this week. I just want an official notice at this point. My co-worker who applied to the Acute Care/CNS program found out that she got in last Thursday. Her status changed in the computer and she received a call from the school on the same day. When I did a search for FNP UMD on this site prior to placing my post, I noticed that people who applied back around 2009 were still waiting to hear something about admission into this program in late April maybe even early May. I hope this is not the case for us. Fingers crossed that we will know by the end of this week.
