Yeah, that's my impression as well. Those selected = invited to campus visit.
I also heard that there are no in-person interviews unless you're applying for the WHC scholarship. The video of yourself serves as the "interview" - is this true? Still no GPA calculation on my end, btw.
Nothing shows up when I click on my GPA section either! And of course whenever you call NursingCAS you have to wait forever to talk to someone and then they don't know what to tell you anyway!
My video interview I did was only three minutes and I was talking so fast to fit it in because I thought it had to be shorter. I feel like we didn't really have any information or guidance on that portion of the application!
I applied to Georgetown's program as a backup originally because I didn't think that they still offered the scholarship. Of course as soon as I submitted my application I realized that they do still offer it so now I am nervous, as I didn't really put my best effort forth on the application or video.
From other threads that I read, it seems like there really isn't a one-on-one interview for Georgetown besides the video we record. Does anybody know if our application is still submitted without the GPA? The e-mail confirmation that Georgetown sent out was kind of vague..
Also, under the GPA calculation section, does it say "Information cannot be displayed"?? I feel like that's not a very promising sign...
Mine says "There is no information to display." That said, I don't think we need to worry much about their GPA calculation system, or lack thereof. As long as your recommendations, transcripts, video, and personal statements are submitted in time, you will be in good shape. The rest is out of our hands!
What kind of healthcare experience do people have here? Any LPNs, EMTs, or CNAs? I'm volunteering at a hospital right now, but I'm looking at a couple different "hands-on" patient care opportunities.
I sent in an email regarding the gpa calculation on our nursing cas site. THey told me that as long as we have other materials in we are okay. The application still sends to the school and it is still viable.
I haven't had any direct healthcare experience in say, a hospital, so I didn't really feel like I could add anything under that section of the application considering the way they defined it. I did a full time internship doing recreational therapy in an assisted living facility for a semester. I also worked for about a year as an in-home caregiver and got A LOT of hands on interaction at that job so I'm hoping those two experiences help!
Ahoy everyone! Thought I would throw in my two cents since my application materials are finally all in place. I've worked as a home health aide and CNA forever. I totally recommend finding casual employment as an aide in a hospital--it's grueling, but it doesn't require much training and you can learn a ton about the nitty gritty of nursing (when my coworkers found out I was finally applying, they asked why on earth I'd go into nursing after all I've seen). Good luck to everyone!
Has anyone heard any additional information from Georgetown since the initial e-mail saying they received your application? On the application guide, it said that they would be sending out information on the WHC Scholar application in mid February but I haven't heard anything else from them...
I haven't heard anything since that preliminary email. Hoping for something soon just so I know the gears are moving!
Nothing other than that email here either!
My GPA is finally calculated on the NursingCAS site! Hopefully this means we'll be getting more information soon :)
