Anyone other MEPN applicants on here? I applied for fall '11 entry and was recently told the program coordinators were trying to decide whether to do interviews this year or not and it was still up in the air. Also was told... Read More
- 0Feb 14, '11 by vls09Haven't heard anything yet; tomorrow is Feb 15th so we've now got two weeks left in the month.
I did notice some minor aesthetic changes to the MEPN website, although I expect more changes this spring with the DNP requirement for new NP's effective in 2015 and the MEPN being a 3 year program.
The FAQ reflects some new changes but it still says that interviews are required for admission and only the "top 30%" will be initially contacted for an interview. I sure hope that isn't true!
- 0Feb 14, '11 by StarofLifeRNThe suspense is driving me crazy! My family has a pact not to let me know if an envelope arrives until after I get home from work. Apparently they are afraid I'll ask them to open it and potentially have to deliver bad news. Although I think my daughter is more afraid I'll get accepted. She keeps saying things like, "When Mom goes to nursing school and we're poor for the next few years..." Geez, how about, "If Mom goes to nursing school we're going to miss spending time with her for the next few years!" Yeah, right. ;-D
- 0Feb 16, '11 by vls09Last year decisions went out on Feb 11th and there was a status update posted on the MEPN website once decisions were made. So, I keep checking the website, but nothing so far. I don't want to call the office to ask because that seems counterproductive if they are this busy. Given that last year they didn't use the CAS and they did conduct interviews, I guess we can't really go by anything that happened last year in forming our expectations.
- 0Feb 17, '11 by wannabefnpHas anyone out there received ANYTHING from UVM yet?
Does anyone dare to call??? I am tempted, but scared to get bad news...
I want to assume that the decisions have not been made yet but I heard from a current student in the program that decisions were made weeks ago (she heard from a faculty member). The silence on the blog is deafening! If it is true that offer letters went out weeks ago, where is all the meet and greet chatter, chat about deposits being due, and waiting to hear from other schools? Where are all the "acceptees"? Maybe they just are not blogging? Supporting this theory, there is also a new "friend" on the UVM MEPN 2011 facebook page, which I think you have to be invited to join...so this might mean the decisions are in fact out? EEKS! I may have to call today before I am consumed by curiosity!
