    Nothing for me yet, but I haven't given up hope since it looks like the FNPs are just getting notified.

    Hawaii808, I have my fingers crossed for you. You are a good egg.

    Thanks FinnCat,
    I am starting to loose hope at this point though.

    salinn, did you hear anything? It looks like I will be choosing one of the east coast school I have already been accepted to. Seattle was far and away my first choice, but I guess that is not in the cards right now. I am fortunate enough to have been accepted in other programs so I too will be starting my NP journey. So, best of luck to you all!!! You will make wonderful APNs. For those that didn't get in, keep working at it. I would love to hear how your interviews go and celebrate those of you who eventually get that amazing acceptance letter. Warm Aloha to you!

    I haven't heard anything at all yet, but I'm not giving up hope. It may be possible that they haven't gotten through to everyone. My status on my application has not changed yet either. Too early to throw in the towel for me. It seems a few peeps on FB also got an interview... I'm not sure how many of those people are also on here, but there may be some overlap.

    So for the rest of us - stay strong!

    Thanks for the pep-talk conniferous. I will not give up yet either. :-)

    Hawaii808, All of these APNI programs have become super competitive. So it means that great applicants are going to get turned down. I think acceptance to any program is a huge accomplishment. The East Coast will be lucky to have you.

    Haven't heard anything either. Getting a little anxious even though Im trying to stay optimistic...

    Due to the small size of the program and high demand of students wanting acceptance, Seattle U is more competitive than some top ten programs like Penn, Vanderbilt and Columbia!
    From what I gleaned from last year's thread, it varies by specialty, and of course, year to year. Last year about 1 in 17 applicants for FNP were accepted, and 1 in 3 of those interviewed. For psych, it was more like 1 in 5 accepted of those who applied, but since it is such a tiny cohort for psych, this really depends on how many people apply each year.

    Quote from atomicgirl
    Anybody know what percentage of applicants are interviewed? And what percentage of interviewees are accepted?

    Nope I haven't heard anything either so looks like I'm headed east for school. If anyone has any questions about the Seattle area, please feel free to contact me. I've lived in the city for almost a decade and currently live about a mile away from SU so I'd be happy to help answer any questions for those who may be coming from far away.
