    Hey, I'm new to the message boards but will be interviewing in La Crosse as well November 14th. I am so excited! I haven't gotten a letter in the mail, I still had to take my GRE. They let me turn in all my material by the due date and then just email the unofficial scores of the GRE as soon as I got it done and the official ones later on. I took the GRE yesterday, emailed them and got a reply by email this morning to schedule the interview! Good luck everyone, this seems like a great program.

    Hey CPhT. Sorry I haven't been able to respond to your PM. I haven't had enough postings or something and the website won't let me. Do you know how many kids were interviewed last year at franciscan?

    I will be honest, I do not remember. You are not at interviews with the other applicants. It is a time slot just for you, so you do not see the other applicants.

    Anyone else interviewing here? Thought I'd bring this thread back to the top to see if anyone else is interviewing next week

    It's just the 3 of us. We are all in! Seriously though, I forgot to ask how many they are interviewing this year. Did you ask?

    CpH I never asked but I'm guessing near 30 or 5-6 per day. Wouldn't that be great though if it were just the three of us. Ha! I'm very optimistic. It would be great to stay close to my family and not have to make such a major move. Whatever it takes I'm going to pursue this dream though.

    I interview on Monday Nov 12th. I have talked with three people that either go to the program or just graduated this past year, and they really enjoyed it. I can see that the program might not be perfect for everyone, but it would be a very good fit for me and my family. To answer CPh2RN's question, I work at a level I trauma center in Salt Lake City called Intermountain Medical Center on their Cardiac ICU. It is the biggest hospital in Utah. Best of Luck to you guys. Fun Fun Fun Maybe we'll all be buddies some day!

    I used to work at the U of U, the other trauma I (NCCU). You know the U is better right? J/K when it comes to hearts, IMC is the king. I just moved from Utah in June. We will just miss each other. Hopefully we will all be classmates come June! I think this program is great. Clinicals are all pretty close, the interview is friendly, small class size, and a smaller town. All good for me!
