Alternate at KU CRNA program

  1. I am on the alternate list for The University of Kansas CRNA program starting 2012. Any advice on ways to tactfully keep myself fresh in the minds of the admissions committee without seeming too desperate. Anyone out there with prior experience with KU's alternate list and how many they consider as alternates?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!

    They rank their wait list 1 through a certain number and pick numerically. I'm sure you could find out your number on the list via e-mail.

    Hi you guys, I have an interview coming up at University of Kansas and I'm freaking out. Can somebody please send me an email with advices?How is the interview like?Are there tons of clinical questions? My email address is

    It is pretty relaxed. No clinical questions, just get to know you. After the series of painfull injections and increasing electrical shocks to your sensitive areas, the interview is low key. Why you want to be a crna, why this program and other general interview q's. There is probably a template on this site with general questions and hints. If interviewing is not your strong suit I would reccomend practicing. Good luck! Go Jayhawks

    also be sure to bring a knife long enough to pierce saber tooth tiger hide (maybe 10 inches or so), I won't tell you specifics but it will come in handy. I had to use my bare hands and it took a little longer than I would have liked (and tiger CSF is hard to get out from under your nails).
