I just sent off my application for Drexel, Excela Health, Villanova, and Frank J. Tornetta School of Anesthesia for their 2013 class. I was really surprised how early they were taking applications for 2013 but since they do rolling admissions, I guess it's more of a first come first served basis if you meet the criteria. I was told they have already filled the seats for their 2012 class already. I am so excited. The program coordinators and directors from all 4 programs were very nice on the phone and very encouraging. I am applying to the Post-Masters Anesthesia program since I have my MSN in Nursing Education. I was told the schools will conduct interviews in the spring (2011). I was told if you were called for an interview, it indicates a very good chance you would be accepted into the program. I am so nervous. Is anyone else applying for the 2013 class at these schools?
In 2012, I am planning to apply to East Carolina, University of Maryland, St. Mary's University in Minnesota, and SUNY at Buffalo. The good thing is that these schools are not close to taking applications for 2013, which allows me to set aside the money for the application fees, which quickly add up. Some anesthesia programs that are at hospitals require you to pay an application fee to them as well as the University they are affiliated with also.
It would be nice to hear from other potential applicants for 2013.
