    I applied for the 2018 start also. I'm pretty nervous about getting accepted. I sent everything in already. I am applying for the FNP specialty. What specialty are you applying for?

    Cool! Did you end up getting your last recommendation letter submitted? Did you end up doing the GRE? Are you applying for a fellowship?

    Hi all!

    I'm applying to the NNP program. Currently waiting to get confirmation from my last recommender that she will write my letter before I submit my application early next week. Crossing my fingers she'll say yes.
    I'm also planning on applying to the 2 year accelerated BSN program at Capital as a backup plan if I don't get in, then reapplying for traditional entry.

    Thanks for starting this thread! Does anyone know the stats of past applicants that have been admitted?

    Stats of past admitted applicants seem to be all over the board. It also seems to depend upon what specialty you are interested in.

    I looked at a thread on here from last year, and the GPA's range all over the board. There was one guy with a 4.0 who applied FNP who got denied, and a girl who had a 3.3 and applied to WHNP and got in.

    I also noticed that interview decisions were sent out Nov 1st last year, and the first round of decisions were put out before Christmas. I'm hoping it's the same this time!

    I asked at the Graduate Nursing Expo a few weeks ago and was told that ALL applicants with a completed application that meet the minimum requirements are asked to interview.

    I remember a lady got admitted to the pediatric cohort with only like a 3.1 and hadn't been in school for 20 years! no academic references just references from past managers and she got in because her personal statement really showed she was passionate about pediatrics!
