Great interviewing skills
I was accepted to 2 schools probably because I tend to interview well. Don't give up if your qualifications don't look so good on paper. If lucky enough to land an interview, make sure you are highly prepared (do your homework on the school and profession), and be cool, calm, confident, excited, well dressed, arrive early, have a pen on you, and always be humble.
The best of luck to you and wish me luck in CRNA school!
