    Quote from kish24
    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.
    I haven't taken the GRE
    I spoke the director and assistant director.
    Totally not related but are you from CT?

    If you have not retaken your science classes from undergrad I would do that first. That will make a huge impact, not only in your GPA but also in how determined you are to get into school. I think that experience helps beacuse the pool is full of 1 to 2 year out of school candidates however many have near perfect GPA and great GRE scores.

    I plan to take the GRE's, I have also reached out to the director via email for some tips for next year.

    No I'm from Kentucky. Yeah I am going to take some next semester to help improve my GPA. I also asked for advice for next year. So we will see. Fingers crossed!

    To all who heard the dreaded news:

    I cannot possibly be more sincerely in my saying that I am sorry to hear the bad news. I do not take lightly the lingering disappointment that you must feel. I do believe that your persistence and drive will both illuminate your determination and intrinsic character, as well as pay dividends for either acceptance into a future cohort or possibly a different program. You are critical care nurses, all incredibly savvy I am sure; and so in accordance with the same inherent drive that got you to where you are today... Don't quite!

    To any whom received acceptance:

    I would very much like to get in contact with you, through group messaging or otherwise, to figure out the logistics of living arrangements, tasks to be completed, introductions, etc.

    Being waitlisted is hard, I just want to moarn not getting in. Instead I have a tiny bit of hope, not sure which is worse.

    Anyone get any useful advice from the school or info on the waitlist?

    Waiting is very hard. It prob will be quite some time before we know anything. However I think the date to respond with accepting a position is the 23rd so maybe a possibility if someone doesn't accept their spot. We shall see. It's hard waiting but all things happen for a reason. Good luck everyone and congrats to those who were accepted

    Hi! Thanks for posting! Would you be able to tell me how many days a week you school schedule is for the first three semesters? I was thinking about applying this year but have a commitment for the first three semester next year so I wanted to see how doable it is. Thanks again!
