    Hey everyone!!

    Sorry I haven't been on in awhile. It's great to see that everyone is doing well. I had my interview last week. It was a great experience and I enjoyed touring Vanderbilt. It's a beautiful campus. I'm just hoping and praying for a spot. It truly would be a dream come true for me.

    I'm interviewing Thursday for the Peds track. I'm so nervous! Anyone have information about the types of questions they ask?

    To those who were lucky enough to get interviews..

    Do you mind sharing what your GPA was like when you applied? And did you have health care experience or volunteer work? Extra-curricular activities/organizations (like NSNA, etc.)?

    Also, do they want your degree GPA or cumulative?

    TIA!

    I have ~3.5 GPA, cumulative. I did do some shadowing/volunteer work while in nursing school, which was a bit tough considering I did a 1 year accelerated BSN program. I have a previous degree in Cell Bio & actually worked in biotech for 10 years before going into nursing school. I was an NSNA member while in school. Hope that helps.

    I had a 4.0 cumulative GPA in my BSN program. I had a nurse internship last summer and assisted on a research project in school. I am a member of sigma theta tau and was really involved in my sorority. hope this helps

    Has anyone started interviewing yet? How's the experience?

    Zippy7 and smb84-

    Thanks for sharing, that does help a lot! I'm applying for the Summer 2012 cohort. I also did a nurse internship this past summer, and I do belong to a few nursing organizations. However, my cumulative GPA is a 3.1 (I ruined this before I even became a nursing major!) Despite my low GPA, I'm going to apply anyway.. I have nothing to lose right?

    You definitely have a chance. The minimum is 3.0 for this round. Good luck!

    I interviewed today for the Peds track! I can't wait to hear back! The 3 women who interviewed me were very nice and the questions weren't so bad. I will be praying until the middle of November I get a position, but they said people traveled from out of the country to interview.

    They don't do Skype interviews? I thought they did. Maybe it was another thread that I read that on but I thought that Vanderbilt did Skype interviews for people out of the area.

    They do Skype interviews, but it is strongly suggested that you appear in person.

    You mean doing a Skype interview would affect how they rate you? That's odd. I wonder why they even offer them. I live on an island and will be applying at several places throughout the country so it gets very expensive with airfare and hotel. I guess I am thinking I will get a lot of interviews. Not sure if that is the case.
