Just wanted to let everyone know that I got a call from Oakland University this morning. I Got In!!!! Finally, I can stop worrying. Just wanted to say thanks to all for the good advice and tips.
We start fall semester 2006.
Admission requirements are pretty typical, 1 year of critical care experience. I applied with 4 years of ER experience and 1 year of cardiology clinician experience. They called me on the phone and basically told me I wouldn't get an interview without ICU experience. So I bit the bullet and left my cush job and started in the ICU last month. They granted me an interview based on the fact that I will have one year experience by the time the program starts.
