Seattle U - APNI 2013 - page 16

Hello everyone - this is my second time applying. A month ago, I bombed the interview! If this is your first time applying, there's a world of information from previous years, especially from the... Read More

    I feel like I am being marched to the guillotine.

    When someone like Calinca - who obviously espouses the attitude that SU desires so much - doen't get an interview, I feel sunk.

    thanks everyone. I just need some time now.

    But don't let this discourage you all, you are all amazing!

    I feel the same way...I wonder if all the "obviously more qualified people" tend to not seek out a website/thread like this? Also per my previous message, I definitely had to check my email right away...

    Calinca, I am SO sorry!! I am flabbergasted since you were selected last year. My heart sunk. I definitely know what it's like to be in your position and can sympathize. I know nothing we say will really make that feeling go away quickly, but know that what I've read from your posts, you are a wonderful person. Don't ever let this be something that defines you because you are great!

    It's 430 Seattle time I think. Looks like we may have to go another day without knowing.

    Is anyone in the Facebook group? Has anyone passed along any info over there?

    I JUST asked to join the group on FB. Will report back any info I can find =)

    Okay, so we can all agree that Calinca will make an awesome NP in this world. And as hard as this rejection is Calinca, I believe that you will be a NP to many patients who will empowered by your care. And you will be a model for the nurse practioner world that is struggling for a voice.

    I'm on the FB group, sounds like nothing from those people as of last night at least. Any updates for anyone else?

    Hey guys! This is my first post on this thread. I wonder if they are still planning to conduct interviews at the end of the month to early next month or if they are going to push the dates back. It just seems too short of notice for those who are planning to fly out. Who here has Seattle U as their first choice?

    Seattle U was my only choice this year (I got a late start on applications). I emailed yesterday and asked if they were still planning on beginning interviews on the 23rd, and the response I got back was pretty vague and didn't really address the start date. All I was told was that the College of Nursing was in the process of contacting those that they intend to interview. :-/

    They are "in the process," but I don't think they have been contacting anyone yet. Sigh. I think the interview window will be pushed back, or people will be encouraged to do phone interviews.

    Seattle U is my first choice and actually the only school that I applied to this year around. If I don't get in this year, I plan on taking a couple more courses to increase my pre-req GPA, do some volunteering and enjoy the first year with my baby girl (expected to come any day now!). My mindset is that even though I desperately want to get in this year, I'm holding my plans in an "open-hand" and know that God's plan for me is better than anything I can see myself.

    Wow so much activity since I last posted. Calinca, I am so sorry to hear about your news. I was shocked because you seemed like such a great fit for SU, and reading through this thread and the 2012 thread I can tell you have a great character. But like others said, I know you will make a great NP no matter where you go. If this is truly what you want to do then you will find a way, just dont give up on your dream

    As for me, I am nervously waiting for this email to come at any moment...SU and Columbia are my top choices. SU has a much nicer price tag though
