Hi everyone! I am finally officially applying to VCU and MSA for 2013. Was also going to apply to UT chat and SEHC but decided 2 was all I could reasonably afford to fly out to interview at. This has been such a LONG road... Read More

    Yeah my stomach is in full butterfly mode all the time ! We thought of living with my mother in law and commuting to the northern campus but I wanted the benefit of the full campus experience w the sim lab and established clinical sites and instructors. Don't know too much about the northern campus to compare. Spent 3 days shopping for interview clothes ! I hate shopping ! I want to be the real me in jeans . Lol

    My interview is Nov 8th. I've been reviewing my ccrn stuff to prepare. I'm applying to the Roanoke campus. My friend who graduated about a year ago is going w/me to help keep my nerves in check on the way there

    Kellly I thought you went last week. Guess I am confused. My previous coworker is attending there now and will ferry me back and forth from the airport. We are having dinner the night before so hopefully he can calm my nerves! Studying ccrn stuff, interview questions/topics, all kinds of data. I hear they aren't grueling but I can't help worry they would suddenly decide to be with me!

    Kellly I am so jealous you got a date so far out! They would only schedule me for the day I have, which left me 2 weeks to prepare, rather short for changing schedules and all the plans and shopping. I think that's why I am more nervous, I thought I would have more prep time!!

    Hi guys ! I interviewed today , so happy it is all over with. I like that they are talking students final decisions a month earlier than previous years. So we have about 4 weeks of torture instead of 8, lol.

    I don't really know how I did...esp the adcom chair...very tight lipped. I felt the interviews were too short ! There was so Much I wanted to say but didn't get a chance to. I just put my best foot forward and flat out said I was the best candidate for next years class ! Lol

    Good luck guys

    Hi missnurse

    Glad your interview went well. Thats great I don't think I could stand an 8 week wait period. Did you like the campus and sim lab ? How was the test ? and in the interview did they ask any clinical questions or was it basic why do you want to be a CRNA type questions?

    Hi lcsrn !
    Campus is completely removed from vcu. It is basically a wing at the old hospital there , right next to vcu med center. The allied health division is there. But it's nice. A few lecture rooms , two sim lab rooms , a breakroom. Test was basic icu knowledge , nothing quite difficult. The interviews were mostly get to know u questions with some behavioral ones thrown in. No clinical grueling.

    They also had a senior student who was about to graduate in December come talk to us. We were able to be alone w her and ask any question we wanted.

    It all just solidified why vcu is my number one school choice.

    Good luck and let us know how it went !!!

    Has anyone heard back from VCU yet? I'm sure that they are still conducting interviews and I know they said the end of November, but this wait is brutal! I was just wondering if people got offered the "you are so awesome, we called you the next day" spots.

    Hi Karalina!

    Welcome to the vcu anxiously waiting group ! When did you interview? I know my application folder was set aside bc I was called to ask to send my personal statement again. I asked if it was a good thing that my folder was given to mtg and she said yes !

    The night after my interview I dreamed she called me to offer me a spot! I had to call her and have a laugh at the applicant craziness she is probably used to.

    Good luck and keep in touch. I assume u interviewed a while ago as you are feeling the wait harder than I am ! I try really hard not to dwell on it and instead I am freaking out about how I am going to live without working for 2+ years!!!!
