    Thanks Ms. B, I do appreciate it. Just stay focused and confident that you will do well. I will be starting my MSN courses in September so it will decrease my workload later. No matter what happens, just be proud you got to this level, and let your determination take you to the next step. This is only the first step in my CRNA career, as I want to go for more after graduating, but definitely this is the biggest step. I will also be relocating from NYC/NJ area to South Jersey for the program. Thanks again for the congrats..soon you will be in my spot as well.

    I'm currently a student at OLOL. Just be yourself at the Interview. Try not to look so scripted and Please never say you've ALWAYS wanted to be a CRNA as it couldn't be further away from the truth.
    It is a great program and I've so far enjoyed my clinical rotations. Good Luck.

    Well, time is winding down and the date is drawing nearer now that we are in September. I am feeling great about it and I am super excited!!! I am just so happy that I have had ample time to prepare myself extensively with regards to interview questions and studying material. I can truly say that I am ready. You are right Mr.e01, I am ecstatic to have even gotten this far in the process. That in itself is a blessing. It is extremely wise of you to take MSN courses prior to starting the program...very smart move. I admire you for wanting to further your education after becoming a CRNA. That is excellent!! You are a success story and I thank you again for your words of encouragement. I am looking forward to being in your position very soon!!

    Hello Kenmartins!! Thank you so much for replying. I am glad to receive input from a current student in the program. I have been practicing with my mom, fiance, and by myself for several weeks and feel very comfortable and confident in all of my responses. I am always sure to always come across as genuine, sincere, and myself when I practice. That is the most important thing. Every time I practice, I act as if it is the real deal and it has helped greatly. I definitely will not come across as scripted or robotic for sure and I don't when I practice. I just wanted to truly think through each question thoroughly and take the time to explore how I truly feel and how I will respond. I am happy that I've had the time to give tremendous thought to all of the definite questions and possible questions that I will be asked. I would hate to be asked a question that I should've explored and given thought to on my own and be caught off gaurd. I hate that feeling lol. I am happy to know that you're are enjoying your clinical rotations so far and to hear positive feedback about the program. Another success story!! Thanks again for replying and for the words of wisdom!!

    Hello Mr.E01!! How are you? I just wanted to update you on my progress with OLLMC. The wait is finally over and I am proud to say that we will be classmates!! I received my acceptance letter yesterday and I am truly ecstatic and overjoyed!! I just got back from celebrating not too long ago and have more to arrange. The wait was the hardest part of the process for me but the extreme happiness that I feel made it all worthwhile. The interview was a success and went very well!! I had a really good feeling about it once I left. Talk about overprepared lol I didn't have to do half of what I did but nevertheless I am glad that I gave it 110% and my all. I have no regrets and would do it all over again in a heartbeat. It was all worth it. The exam wasn't that bad at all. I had great vibes about the program and everyone there. Everyone was so nice, supportive, and helpful. I can't wait to start in April 2013!! I want to start taking classes from now as well to lessen my workload once the program begins and will arrange that this week. I just wanted to thank you once more for all of your words of encouragement and continued support throughout this entire process!! I can't wait to meet you next year!!

    Awesome!!! Congrats.. so happy for you.. you worked hard and it showed.. you deserve to celebrate! Its such a great feeling and I know exactly how you feel...again congrats.. i had no doubts you would get in..

    How many people interviewed? How long was the interview? Do you know if anyone else was accepted? The staff there is really supportive and great..which is very important and definitely helped me make the decision to attend at OLLMC.

    I am currently taking informatics and health policy online.. its good...a lot of work, but handleable.. winding down at work, and focusing more on my education and getting as many as these credits knocked out as I can online before clinicals start.

    Looking forward.. and definitely keep in touch..cannot wait to be future crna's together.

    Thanks so much again Mr.e01 and I commend you once more on your acceptance as well!! It's the best feeling in the world and you have inspired me so much and were extremely helpful!! I just booked a little vacay to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for a week to celebrate my success and my B-Day in early November. I figured I would squeeze in one last vacation before I begin online courses and of course the actual program next year lol


    On that day there were 8 of us, 5 in the 10AM group and 3 in the 11:30AM group. I was in the 11:30am group and was the last to interview. My interview was about 25-30 minutes. I had so much to say. The other two interviews were about 10-15 minutes each. I remember looking at the clock while I was waiting for my turn to get an approximate idea of how long it would be. I don't know of anyone else who was accepted who interviewed that day. I hope they utilize this site and come across this thread so we can correspond with them or maybe we can start one and see what happens. I absolutely love the faculty!! They are wonderful and really made me feel at ease. So nice and supportive too!! That greatly appealed to me.

    I'm so happy that you have already begun your online core courses. They always end up being more difficult since we don't actually attend classes physically but you're doing well so far. That's great!!! I'm mailing off my letter of acceptance today and informed them of my strong desire and intent to complete as many online core courses as I possibly can before the program starts. Anything to decrease the courseload/stress, I'm all for it because this is going to be a very long and hard journey. We have to make it a little easier on ourselves somewhat. How soon after you mailed in your letter did you register for and begin your online classes?

    Awesome... you totally deserve the vacay.. enjoy it.. before you get back to the grind lol.. Thanks for the update on the interview info.. again I am so happy for you, and soon we will all be together, working through this program. I received all of my financial aid for the year and like I mentioned before, I am taking 6 credits now.. it took a couple weeks for all the paperwork to be completed but the staff is super helpful, and it was done very smoothly. It would be good if I could use PM on this site, but I cannot. Either way keep me updated, and if you have any questions post it up, and maybe I could help..otherwise..Live it up now buddy! lol

    You know I definitely will!! I can't wait!! I'm just counting down the days and want to make sure that I enjoy every little bit of freedom I have left lol. I'm even more ecstatic to return and begin this exciting journey that lies ahead. It's going to be a wonderful experience for all of us. You're welcome regarding the interview info. No problem. I see the process moved along fairly quickly with regards to you receiving all of your financial aid and starting classes. Wow!! That is truly amazing!! I'm so proud of you for accomplishing so much prior to beginning the program. I'm happy to know that everything was done in such a timely manner and without incident. With regrads to PM, I believe you have to have a certain number of posts before you are able to PM on this site. I think it's around 15 or so. Whenever you're able to use it, feel free to PM me anytime. That would be great!! I will definitely be in touch and will continue to keep you updated on everything that's going on. I am wishing you all the best with your classes and know you will totally ace them!!

    Congrats on getting into Ollmc... I have been looking Though many of the post and my interview is on the 25, I feel as if they filled in a good number of seats already, do you know if they have a waiting list! Plus was the interview clinically type questions or what and the science test is it more cardio, resp, or what, I am so nervous, I freaking out!

    Thanks Joysa!! Congratulations on getting an interview with OLLMC!! I do not know of how many seats they have filled thus far. Posts thats I've read from the last 2-3 years prior indicate that they do have waiting lists, I guess just in case somone who is accepted decides to not accept the offer then they can offer someone else that spot. I assume it would be the same this year but I do not know for sure. As for the interview, just relax, be yourself, and let your personality shine throughout. I can't promise you that they won't ask you any clinical questions because everyone's interview is different. For the interview and exam, I would just brush up on CCRN materials, ACLS protocols, etc just in case. Do you have your CCRN by the way? The exam does cover some chemistry (that part of it is either you know it or you don't). Don't freak out, you will be just fine. The faculty is really nice and do not set out to intimidate you. Good luck and keep us posted!!
