    Does anyone know how many students start out at TWU per year?

    I believe they admit 100 - 120, which I think depends on the number of slots their clinical sites are allowing. I interviewed at TWU in December, and am waiting for interviews at my top clinical site picks.

    i also think that although TWU admits >100 students, they only graduate around 60. they seem to weed out students during the program, instead of before (during interviews). of course they have an excellent boards pass rate...

    How did it go sandman?

    actually only 10 percent drop out durring the coarse of the program which is pretty standard for graduate school.
    if the numbers you are looking at come from the brag sheet they send you'll see that for the last 15 years they have gradually accepted more and more students. last year was the first year they accepted one hundred. about 6-8 dropped out in the first sem. because of TCU's program; clinical seats will be tight and they will probably not accept more than 100 this year. if that. plus the director told me that they just can't handle any more students.

    really if you think about it. accepting more students is what all the schools should be doing right now. durring a shortage of anesthesia providers it would behove CRNA's if there was a sudden insurgance of CRNA's into the market place. I know that medical residencies are trying to up their enrollments for anesthesiologist for the same purpose.. we want to have more stock in the market. if you get my drift.

I just wanted to say thanks to you all. this BB has been invaluable in the information provided.

    Well, I'm back and I feel that the interview went great. It was with the director of the program and a member of the faculty. The interview was very relaxed and I feel that they were actually listening to me and interested in what I had to say. They make their final decisions at the end of March, so I will know more then.

    by the way...I think congrats are in order for PJ!!
