    Weirdest thing! I got an email saying I had been accepted to EP based on my Austin interview (not accepted, not sure why) but I MUST move to El Paso? Has anyone else received one of these emails? I would imagine El Paso, which accepts 40 out of 140 would have its own waitlist...??? Any insight?

    Hmm .. that sounds strange I wasn't aware of them sharing applications. But its a good opportunity if you are willing to move! I got accepted as well but I did apply.

    @pasodeblas... thanks and congrats to you as well! I didn't have to interview either, I was so happy about that! I just got an email today about immunizations and some general information. Have you completed a first aid course by any chance? I've been looking for one online but I don't want to choose the wrong one

    @georgesand -- the same situation happened with me. I had already interviewed for the program down here in Austin, and sadly didn't make it in. But a week later got an email about open spots in the El Paso Program. Went ahead and filled out the online app for that program and got in. So looks like I will be moving to El Paso pretty soon here. Glad to see other people are already thinking about housing... I talked to Gretchen a week ago and she said apartments can be hard to come by since there is a military base there, and that some students find it cheaper to split the rent on a house. So I'd definitely be open to finding some roommates and exploring what all is out there. We should get a facebook group going for our Spring 2013 El Paso cohort or something, would be good to have a place to all communicate/meet each other. Congrats to all of you guys and gals and see you on the 19th.

    congratulations to you guys, I a was in your position last year and know how excited you must be. I am in the graduating class for this dec 15th.
    I am from out of town too, we started a thread about possible roommates in my time and I ended up having a roomate it was way cheaper.
    we stayed in Las Lomas apartments, its 10mins from the school of nursing and tech students get a $10 discount. a 2bed is $680, and 3bed I think abt $800.
    let me know if you have any questions I will be glad to help. congrats again, the program is fun, fast (11months jan 14th-dec15th) and the instructors are great.
    won't be here on the 19th would have loved to say congrats in person.
