    CONGRATULATIONS! Wow, I am really nervous, my specialty is similar but not exactly the same... guess I will just have to keep waiting...

    Got the email for an interview yesterday morning, too, for Adult/Gero primary NP. Am trying to decide if I should fly out or do it remotely.

    Congrats everyone!

    I spoke with someone in admissions and they told me that approximately 75% of the applicant pool is interviewed.

    Does anyone have any information how how many people per specialty are admitted?

    Do you know of those 75%, how many are admitted on average? Thanks for the info!

    I think I remember hearing that they do not keep specific numbers on acceptance rates per specialty.

    Wow, I'm REALLY nervous. 75% is a lot... if I'm not part of that 75%, I'm going to feel pretty terrible..

    Congrats to everyone with an interview! I have one for the Pediatrics Specialty, but I can't decide if I should fly in for the interview or do it over the phone

    Is yours for regular peds?

    Hi kd! I am going for pediatric primary care and im going to fly in! I feel like it might not make a difference on our decision from the school, but could make a difference if we do get admitted with regards to our choice of program! Where are you located? I'm in Boston and have never been to Philly so I think it will be good for me. Let me know what you decide!

    Someone on here asked about last names and notifications. My last name starts with an A, and I received an email invite yesterday morning. So it's possible...
    Good luck!
    I'll be flying out for the interview. I'm in Southern California. I figured it would be good to see the campus.
