    Yea I can't believe how expensive it is to fly! I almost feel like with gas money it would be expensive to drive to so may be worth it to fly, let me know when your planning to go.. I'm thinking March 12 for my Spring break, it would be nice to have someone to explore with!

    DAS225- I have a 3.9 Nursing GPA, participated in a nurse externship this summer in NY in the pediatric ER, volunteer at a local children's hospital, volunteered in a children's hospital while studying abroad, am an active member NSNA, and in addition to my pediatric clinical rotation I am currently in the PICU for my senior preceptorship. I hope this helps!

    I'm planning to go either March 5th for my spring break or March 19th! I was originally planning on the 12th too, but that week of school is my first week of preceptorship.

    Skype (in my opinion) doesn't hurt your chances if you do it properly. Make sure you're totally alone and uninterruptable. I would also make sure the computer you're using has a hardline (ethernet) to your modem or router, don't use wireless.

    Also, test-run it several times with some friends to make sure you're connected well, your microphone works well and you can hear them well.

    As long as the computer and skype is working fine, and there isn't a single distraction or interruption they can interview you just like they would in person.

    Catie812- I'm peds track too!! that is odd we're at the same time, but I'm doing mine in person? Maybe they have a separate group of people that do the Skype interviews? That's so odd!
