    I got an email about the interview as well. Totally psyched!I am confused though--did everyone get an interview? I think most but not all applicants are interviewed. Was anyone not given an interview? Is it only the most competitive applicants, or only those they wanted to ask follow up questions to?

    Which specialty was yours for, lifeismuzik?

    I called Penn and asked if they would be emailing all week, or just today, and he said it would be throughout the week and that they literally just started today, and that there was a much larger applicant pool this year than last. He said it was pretty much rolling. When did you guys submit your applications?

    What specialties are considered popular?

    You're welcome! It's official... I'm obsessed with checking my email and this board. It's a problem. I'm so nervous/anxious/excited. Here's hoping we ALL hear good news this week! Good luck to all, and congratulations once again to those who heard great news already!

    salinn, I think that the "popular" specialties are considered family NP, regular pediatric NP, nurse anesthesia, midwifery, and women's health. Just checked the interview schedule, and this seems to be correct...

    Hi all good luck!

    I'm still stunned, but I received an email today at about 10:30AMPST for an interview. I'm applying for the FNP specialty and turned in my application at about 11:30PM EST on Oct. 15.

    Hang tight everyone...I'm sure they're still in the process of hashing it out! I know I got nervous for another school when everyone else heard a change in their application status, and I didn't until a week or so later. I'm sure it's a work in process, and they're working hard to respond as soon as possible!
