Anyone else waiting for an interview invitation? I have a friend in the program who said she thought they were sending out invitations either last week or this coming one. The anticipation is killing me!

Nope! I went to an info session a few months back, and Dr. Walker said they no longer require the prerequisite courses be within a certain time frame. It just caused too much of a headache for the admissions team, and they didn't think it was especially important.

They do require that the GRE be within the last four years, though.

If you click through to the invitation, it says, "Applicants will meet individually with five interviewers during this period. Interviews will be spaced throughout the day." That's about all I had already heard too.

Hi guys congrats on the interviews that's such a huge accomplishment!! I want a couple more years of ICU experience under my belt before I apply to crna school but Baylor has been my dream. Do you guys mind sharing your stats? Also, do you happen to know if you need orgo 1 and 2 with labs? I've only taken orgo 1 and I'm hoping that would be suffice.

Hey there! Thank you! I'm not exactly sure how I got an interview because my stats are not the best. I've got a 3.4 GPA and had a GRE score of 309... I only took Organic 1, but I received A's in all my Chem courses. I am CCRN certified which they don't require but other schools do. I've worked 3 years MICU. The best thing in my corner is that I've had a lot of leadership experience/awards. Best wishes to you as you chase your dreams :) wish me luck in chasing mine

My GPA is 3.4, GRE was 324 with writing score of 5.0, 3 years MICU experience, CCRN certified. I took organic 1 and 2 with labs, but all they require is organic 1 (not sure if lab is necessary). My advice would be to do as well as possible on the GRE (I used the Kaplan review book, and highly recommend it) and definitely get your CCRN. In the info session, they more or less said that the CCRN is an unofficial requirement. Officially, it's not required, but Baylor applicants are generally so competitive that you're going to have a hard time being considered without it.

And thanks. It feels good to have an interview, but that's not enough for this guy. I want into the program!
