als, it is interesting that they seem to allocate a certain number of seats to the psych and other tracks. It is scary to think that there are only 16 total spots (so they say) which means if they break it up by track, it's actually quite a bit less. I am not sure which is the most competitive but I imagine FNP probably receives the most applications and has the most spots. Still, to think I might be competing with 100+ people for 10 or less spots is really not fun. On the plus side for you, I do not think they give any additional preference to students from Vermont; I asked and unlike med school, UVM's nursing school
only gives admissions preference to undergraduate applicants who are state residents.
crs, we are in similar shoes. I am settled in central VT near my parents, with my spouse (no kids yet, but they're coming). I was born/raised here, left for about ten years after high school and came home for good just a few years ago. I'm also really excited about this, but at the same time, I am trying to lower my expectations because of how competitive this is. I do have previous medical experience; I'm an EMT and I've also volunteered in a local hospital. I'm not sure how much this will help me though given my grades.
How about you all - medical experience? Have you taken all of the recommended courses or will you be in summer school with me (if we get in)?
