Phillips Beth Israel 2013 Applicants - page 3

In the process of putting together my application for PBISN 2013. Who else is applying? I'm curious to hear from current students and recent grads--what was your background? Your NLN scores/GPA?... Read More

    They emailed me today telling me my application has gone to the committee for review. One of the older threads has some of the interview questions listed.

    Jodi-- Here is the link to the previous post about the interviews.

    I met with someone from the school back in January and she told me that the interviews are very laid back. She told me that your essay will most likely be refrenced so I would make sure to take a look over it again before you go. During the interview they will go over the different programs offered and talk about which one you think suits your needs the best.

    Nmh1888- I interviewed with ****. She is very laid back and friendly, she makes you feel comfortable enough to the point where ur conversation flows well and ur able to take time to think of ur answers. Very low pressure. She asked me about 4 typical questions (like the prior forum states), and spoke about my essay. Then finally, she went over the program types and how they work. We spoke for approx an hour. Don't be nervous- she's a pleasure to speak with.. I suggest reviewing your delivery and make sure to dress appropriately. Goodluck!!

    I (finally!) NLN'd yesterday--it was a packed house. Glad to see I'm not the only procrastinator (my procrastination was mostly centered around having to take the TEAS, NLN and a CLEP exam in a three month period). Seeing that many people made me a little worried about my odds--they get A LOT of applicants!

    When I was there for my interview last week I was told that the past 2 years they have had over 1,000 applicants for less than 150 spots.

    I took the NLN, TEAS, and HESI all within one month. It stinks but at least you are done now.

    Hi everyone!
    I'm new to this forum, although I've been stalking it like a madwoman since I've applied to PBISN. Just wondering, has anyone received their acceptance letter yet? This waiting game is driving me insane!

    I was told today was the first admissions committee meeting. I'm suppose to email/call them tomorrow to find out their decision.

    They told me last week that they had to reschedule the meeting because some people are out of town for spring break.

    Yeah I just got an email about the meeting being postponed to April 1st and to find out about the results at the end of next week.
