    I heard the same thing nervous! Already rcv'd acceptance at another school, seems like Rush takes forever! The website says decision by March but that seems like short notice for a May start. Has anyone had luck finding the average GPA and other qualifications of current students accepted to the program?

    Good luck everyone!

    I had my interview yesterday with *******- he was awesome! He made me feel very welcomed and comfortable. It didn't feel like I was under a microscope which was my fears, it just felt like we were having a conversation. He just asked the typical questions like why rush, why nursing, how do I handle stress, and one ethical question. I felt it went well until he asked me about the CNL and I honestly wasn't really sure what that part was other than what it stood for. I hope I didn't blow it based on a lack of understanding so my advice to any going into interview- take some time and learn what that cert is and can do for you.

    Good luck y'all : )
