    Hey all,

    I just received an email stating that I was not selected for an interview. Although disappointed, I realize this only means that I'm meant to start my career somewhere else! Good luck to everyone else, I hope yall get in!

    I'm with bsnstudent....out of the running. I think those "not selected" will get the rejection information first. So if you're not hearing early by now, you might be safe.

    Oh well, time to move on and keep looking...good luck to all!

    I just found out I got an interview to the pediatric track - so excited as well!!

    I've been looking at other posts about this program and some people have been saying they care about volunteering. I don't volunteer in a hospital but am heavily involved with community service at my school (i.e. Mission trips, Habitat for Humanity, Make-A-Wish Foundation). Is it possible this could be used against me after the interview? I love community service and volunteering but also have a demanding academic schedule and babysit several days a week.

    If you were invited to interview, I don't think they will "use any thing against" you during the interview. They are obviously interested in you or they wouldn't have selected you to interview! Don't focus on what you don't have!

    Has anyone interviewed yet? How was it?

    I did have my interview and am not quite sure how I feel about it. I felt that it was very impersonal and that they did not really get to know me - and just stuck to their packet of challenging questions... barely looking up. I left there feeling very down and do not think I will be chosen... there was nothing differently I could have prepared for it, it just made me feel pretty discouraged.

    I interviewed Feb 14th for the peds track. I was really excited going into the interview but the nerves got to me. I have no idea how I did during the interview but I am staying positive. I currently live in New Jersey. Anyone else from out of the area?

    Good Luck to everyone with their interviews and the rest of the process! I hope to meet some of you soon!

    I interviewed for critical care track last week as well. It was a great experience. I am from San Francisco, so this was a pretty big deal for me. One of my instructors gave me examples of questions from a new graduate program out here, and those really helped me. I wrote down examples for those questions and basic ones, so i felt prepared when they asked me a question and i had the answer ready right away. I was also surprised that there were not more personal questions, i guess i tried to throw personal things in here and there. The staff was so friendly and inviting, which definitely helped me relax! Stressful, but we will all have to wait and see what happens! The lady i interviewed with said they are not hiring for the CVICU this round, bummer. I wonder how many people they are going to accept this time. I learned there that there were 900 applicants, ~270 interviews. Good luck everyone!
