Yale GEPN Fall 2010 - page 23

Okay, I know it's early, but Yale is my first choice, and I'm already terrified that I'm going to screw it up. My goal is New England (although I'm also applying to Pace because they have this... Read More

    Just curious, does everyone have amazing credit, it seems you must to either get the grad plus or a private loan to cover the GEPN program. Just curious if anyone has any alternatives if your credit is not steller and you need to cover those types of costs. Also, does anyone know the job prospects of coming out of Yale as an NP? Thanks.

    I sent a friend request when I could have simply asked my question - I just realized this lol
    Anyhoo, can you give a sense of what the actual interview process was like. What types of questions did the interviewers ask? Anything related to past grades etc; anything they zoned in on more than others? Please advise. Thanx

    The interview was really not intimidating at all. The interview, mine at least, was just a couple of softball questions like "Why nursing?" "Why this specialty?", things like that.

    Hi guys,

    Wow this thread has gone on for *forever*! And so I feel this is appropriate to ask, though not GEPN related.

    I currently work in the SICU at Yale. I'm looking for FNP schools. My questions for you are why did you choose to look at Yale? Lots of people seem to be looking at the top Yale/Hopkins/Columbia names and I'm wondering if they are so much better than every where else? Meaning, when I applied to undergrad schools, picking a specific school (ie Ivy leagues), was very important. But the vibe I've gotten regarding grad schools is that the institution is not as important, unless there is a negative reputation attached.

    Basically, it seems like Yale costs a whole lot more than anywhere else... its private, big name, etc. Is the program so much better? I can't see many jobs focusing on the Yale name (well maybe to get you in the door for an interview)...

    Hi GlobalGouda,

    I hope this sends you an email alert as I would love a response from you! I was just browsing this forum and came across some of your comments. I am a recent RPCV, and I'm currently looking at BSN to MSN/MPH programs, and I've decided to apply to Columbia, Yale, and Johns Hopkins. I went to GW in DC and saw your other comment about wanting more guidance in grad school and I completely agree. I would really love to get some of your feedback about how your experience was at Johns Hopkins, please email me at saustin87@gmail.com if you see this!!
