    I wonder how many people they waitlist?
    Did you just get your email today?

    I was waitlisted too. Opp, you think 5 people got waitlisted or 50ish? I wonder if they will tell us our spot on the waitlist eventually...

    60 were interviewed and only 15 selected so a fraction of that are selected as back up or waitlist. So my best guess is between 5-10 at most. That's what I have gathered from most programs

    Well if they waitlisted 5, we are all here. LOL

    I do know someone who was waitlisted and got into there program, so there is small hope.

    Are you guys from CT or out of state? Anyone waiting on any other schools?

    lol that's pretty funny I was thinking the same. Yeah I heard one or two got in last year off the waitlist. Well I suppose it's better than a no lol. I was waitlisted for LSU as well and waiting to hear back from Texas Wesleyan. I'm from Texas but was looking at areas I would like to live. I think I underestimated the gre, if I don't get in it's something I def need to focus on for next year

    Did anyone think about calling and asking what number they are on the list?

    Can I ask what your guys stats are? My GPA isn't the greatest and when I asked them for how I could improve that was pretty much all they told me. If that was the case I don't know why they bothered with an interview though. Any suggestions?

    Also who did you speak with, did you email the program director?

    I have a 3.4 GPA, 3.1 science. So it's not great.
    I have been a nurse for almost 5 years. 2.5 in the OR and 2 in a level 1 trauma center MICU. I have charge and preceptor experience, on multiple committees, BLS, ACLS, PALS, CCRN, and TNCC.
