That's exciting (and would be awesome to be accepted on the spot!) Thank you all for the great information and interview tips. Looks like my interview will be either next Wednesday or Friday. :unsure:

Best of luck!!

I have been checking the mailbox to think it would come on paper. Good to know it is email. My interviewer didn't outright say I was excepted, but she did imply it even though I have yet to hear. I emailed my counselor to ask how long it takes for decisions so I have time to prepare if necessary.

I'm so sorry Sla!! I got my acceptances mixed up! I got accepted to two schools (one was MCPHS) and I decided with MCPHS, the other school was by email and MCPHS is by mail! The time frame was still the same through the mail though. I wouldn't be too worried right now, especially if they're still interviewing people for your selected specialty. :)

Hi Sla! Did you ever hear back from your counselor regarding decision timeline?

That's awesome! I really hope you get good news in the mail this week. I'm still trying to nail down the interview date and time. I was originally presented with three options and when I responded the counselor said she needed to confirm the time with the interviewers (which I thought was weird but oh well!) Fingers crossed for you Sla!!!! :)

Thank you SweetDee. They changed my interview date twice, but every one was scheduled for Friday at 1 or 2pm. The lady was really nice and very honest. I'm wishing you luck as well. Are you from the area? I'm from the Worcestwr area and work 5 minutes from the Worcestwr campus.

Thanks for the info Sla! I live and work in Southborough so I'm pretty local to the Worcester campus too. You mentioned before that the PMHNP track is fairly new right? Did they tell you how many students they're accepting?

SweetDee. She did say it was new. I actually hung up the phone and was questioning if we were the first or second class....I was nervous and it didn't compute right away..smh... I didn't ask how many they were accepting either, but those are good questions, if the interviewer mentions it. I had said that when I looked up Psyche NP programs online, MCPHS did not come up and I had learned about it through the BH case manager at my current job. This is when she said the program was new and not advertised as much as it should be.

I think it's the first PMHNP cohort! At least from what Dr Tobin (associate dean of the Mancheter SON :-) ) said!
