The good news: It wasn't really a group interview . . . a group of maybe 25-30 applicants came, there was a very brief informational session, the faculty was introduced, then we just waited in the conference room for our names to be called for an individual interview with a faculty member (there are 8 or 9). I was in the first group taken into the private offices.
The bad news . . . the faculty member who interviewed me didn't seem to think I was a very good fit for this ADN program. This is very disappointing to me, as it is my first choice.
I'll write her a letter this evening (cc: the director of the program), thanking her for her time today and reiterating why I *do* think I'm a good fit. Other than that, I don't think there's much I can do but wait for the acceptance/rejection letter, which I won't see until after the first of April . . . that's a long time to be depressed!
I have been accepted into a BSN program, which I'd finish in maybe 2-1/2 to 3 years because I already have a BA. That'll be my fall back position, but I really wanted this ADN school
Rigorous curriculum, lots of clinical time, small setting so you really get a sense of community among the nursing students, good commute, reasonable tuition.
It's a bummer, but I'm trying to keep my chin up!
