I applied to NKU as well. You have already been accepted? I was told everyone would be notified on September 15 if they got an interview and after everyone has interviewed they will send out acceptance information. Is that not the case? Thanks!

Hi they did an early interview for 5 of us. I am not sure how many got in but I did. They had said they are taking 16 students.

Why did they do five early interviews?

not sure, they said our applications were good and that they were turned on early so they picked 5 of us to interview. I was the only one that didn't attend the information sessions

Hey eh032685,

Congratulations on your acceptance into NKU's program! I was invited for an interview at NKU next month. How was the interview process? Do you mind sharing your email so I can ask about some details about the interview? I don't think I'm able to private message you on here so I figure email is the next best option. I wanted to have a better understanding on how the interview process was going to be. Thanks in advance!

Hi sorry for the late response but the interview was standard. They do two interviews one personal one clinical, two faculty in each interview. The set up was not the best but they are new and I ended up being the last one there. The clinical interview was difficult I felt like I did horrible.I have interviewed at a few places and this was one of most difficult. They give you a lot of numbers and but they had different cases for all of us.Ill send you a message also.

Hello guys, I have applied for NKU program this year. Can you all give any tips on interview process and type of questions they ask please?

I have applied at NKU this year. Can you provide any insights on interview process please? Thank you.

RE: NKU anesthesia program, I was waitlisted #3 the first year I interviewed. The second time I was again waitlisted at #1 that time. I felt I had an excellent interview the second go round. Upon reaching out to them for 2 years now, to see what else I could do to improve my chances of getting in, I received no reply. I think this is wrong. Anyone looking to better themselves or improve their chances, deserves a reply. So see ya, NKU, I got accepted right off the bat elsewhere.
