    As @Soon2BMidwife eloquently said, virtual hugs, warmth and light to everyone regardless of decision. I understand the hodgepodge of emotions one may feel if you got any decisions outside of a yes. I was denied from every single school I applied to last year and just got denied from a school I got the interview stage with twice Friday. I definitely agree that J will walk through everything with you about the application in detail. You can tell she really cares and wants you to succeed. I called a few other schools last year that made me feel so bad about my application, my imposter syndrome got worse and I definitely did not apply to those schools again. I know that walkthrough doesn't take away whatever you may feel or it doesn't change the fact that you may have to figure out what you're doing for the next year (if you were not accepted somewhere else, if so, congrats!). I'll repeat what I said with the interviews. Everyone is awesome, worthy, and capable.

    I had to unfollow the past couple days because I was getting too anxious! Acceped for PMNHP!! yall, when I tell you tears welled up. I made so many major decisions (moving, job, etc) in my life based off faith. I literally woke up and unlocked my phone the minute it came in. I also pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming as I've had dreams about today as well. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you! Congratulations to everyone!

    I had mine today as well. My interview was more interview style versus conversational since they did not look at my application beforehand. They said they liked at least two of my answers, but of course I wish I could have done a few things differently. Iuntil decision time. @CPMtobeCNM I also had some comfort food since I had no healthy snacks and it was awesome! Despite my being overly analytical, I feel surprisingly calm. Just decided to let things go, as there's nothing I can do now. I wish everyone interviewing peace and distractions until decision time!

    Congratulations!! What specialty did you apply for? And are you preferring Yale over Columbia or do you think you're going to accept it?

    No judgement here LOL! Like you said, stressing afterwards won't change whatever decision they make (unfortunately). I mentioned my interviewers name in my essay so I'm super nervous 😅

    Even though I haven't had mine yet, I've definitely already though through getting food to soothe me no matter what, but I'm a monster when it comes to food 😭

    Maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but I'm the type to prepare. I've been looking at prices of studios and 1 bedrooms o, the east coast and good lord, I'm seeing 1600 1700 for a studio? I mean I live in a large metro area with a high cost of living but yeesh. IDK how people afford this. I'm definitely willing to commute, especially given the times. Do any current students or people who live om the east coast already have any suggestions?

    @secondtimer14 lmaooooo exactly. I'll be estatic and honored for any positive news so I'm mainly just focused on that.

    @GreenMagus87Yeah, I thought it was no way, but someone else who interviewed this year asked again and they confirmed it.

    @GreenMagus87 gotcha! Yeah they were super nice, it was definitely conversational. I just got denied last year and knowing they only accept 8 people for each specialty, I'm a little scared, I'm not even gonna lie haha.

    Most of the time was spent with me asking questions

    You got asked questions like that?? I had all that prepared and wasn't really asked much, it was super brief. I expected it to be longer. The person was very nice, but it made me nervous on if I actually did well or not

    @CPMtoCNM super well spoken! I have experienced imposter syndrome knowing some of the accomplishments other people have had versus mine or having a higher GPA than mine. Thank you for this advice! I've also been focusing on my passion for the field, what I can bring to the table, etc. I'm open to different paths because I understand life can go any sort of way and I balance that with my determination to do this particular field. I've been journaling and repeating positive affirmations to myself as well. Oh, and I reflect on past clients I've had in healthcare and positive feedback they gave to my supervisors about me. Thinking about the relationships I made with them and reflecting on the progress they made centers me back when I'm having a moment. My interviewer's bio is a little longer but I did notice that looking at other folks bio just when I was researching faculty as a whole. Only thing I can think is maybe try to Google their name along with ysn or yale and see if any research or something pops up.

    I did! I'm so glad they provided what kind of questions they may ask. I was preparing those answers for most of them anyway, but it's nice to know. Yes so essentially 2 weeks after interviews are over, we will know that week of February! Hopefully for those of us applying to multiple programs we will hear back from those too soon after. I know from previous threads people who got wait listed wanted to know about potential spots opening and others were concerned about making a decision but hadn't heard from anyone else yet.

    I'm right there with you, I legit work every single day of the week AND I'm moving (shortened lease in case of good news 😊). I've been torn between being hard on myself/ knowing I need to prepare at least somewhat and giving myself grace. Realizing there is a lot going on in my life right now and I cannot do every single little thing. What I have been doing is trying to dedicate some of my lunch breaks or 30-45 min a day on prep. Even if only 20min, it has made me feel better. I already had researched my interviewer before even knowing it would be them, looking over my essays and cv, looking up sample answers to typical questions and thinking of my own spin on it. They just sent out an email with tips and some questions you should prepare, which is super helpful
