    Hi Heather, thank you for your generosity. I'm glad to hear that you loved being at Washington Hospital Center- that's the part I'm looking forward to the most too. 10 more days until mine- have a feeling it'll come quick! I'm glad to hear that yours went so smoothly, and I'll let you know how mine goes.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I had my interview at WHC and Georgetown for the Accelerated BSN program last Saturday (10/3/09). I probably would have been sweating bullets about the interview at GU, but I received an email notice the previous Thursday that I was accepted for the Accelerated BSN program at Marymount University in VA, starting in January 2010. So by the time Saturday rolled around, I was pretty chill about the whole interview process at GU - since I was already admitted to go SOMEWHERE.

    As others have mentioned, the morning was a tour of Washington Hospital Center, and group interviews/Q&A. I think the group interviews were crucial. The folks from GU and WHC took a lot of notes while candidates were introducing themselves and talking about themselves a bit. The afternoon was a tour back at GU, group interviews, and one on one interviews. Again, I think the group interviews at GU were at least as important as the one on one interviews.

    TWO HOURS AGO, I received an email from Georgetown, telling me I've been accepted for the ABSN program starting in January 2010!! So I am literally still bouncing off the walls, I'm so happy!

    I won't hear about the WHC Scholars program until next week, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll accept me, too.

    Go Hoyas!!

    Congratulations Pokytrokyt! I just received the good news myself. I can't even believe it! I'm also bouncing off the walls, waiting for my husband to get home! The dogs aren't sure what to think : )

    Crossing my fingers for the both of us that we get the scholarship!

    We need a Facebook group or something like that, so everyone in our cohort can stay in touch. Is anyone among us an expert in setting up FB groups?
