    I don't think it is random. I asked a call center rep that once, and he said they consider a lot of different factors. But then again, one really can not trust anything that one of those reps says on the phone anyway.

    Hi, I'm curious about how they determine who should get the award also. I was first funding preference, I am married, have seven children, and am in my early thirties. My credit score isn't too good, because I have transferred all of my credit cards to a debt management program. I have not ever defaulted on a fed. loan. I am in a traditional BSN program that costs about 27000 per semester. I am a junior, will graduate in 2011. I have never received any email stating that I was considered as a finalist or alternate. Do you think it was because of my debt management program??

    Toyo, I completely agree with you. There is something wrong when we jump through so many hoops to do everything exactly as it is required by HRSA, but then HRSA is not held at all accountable for their claims. It doesn't make any sense that no one on this forum has been officially informed that they were selected. If the "overworked and underpaid" employees at HRSA could not meet the deadline, they only had to post a brief message at the login page stating that. If they had done that, we would all be aware of it. Besides what makes them so overwhelmed? It's calls from us right? And why do we call? Because they are so secretive about the process of selection and notification. I think that there is a serious problem here with a lack of government accountability.

    I am just having a hard time keeping up with anything lately. I really don't believe that I would have ever been selected anyway.

    I gave up on it finally:scrying: I dropped a class at the last minute, so now I'm not full time and not in the first funding preference group. Good luck everyone else!

    As I understand it, for the nursing scholarship program, critical shortage facilities would include virtually any hospital or nursing home. But don't take my word for it, this info is available at the HRSA NSP website. http://answers.hrsa.gov/cgi-bin/hrsa.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1465&p_created=1209990666&p_sid=mVrtuxIj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYnk9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0zNywzNyZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9MTkmcF9wdj0mcF9jdj0xLjE5JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTE!&p_li=&p_topview=1

    This silence is nervewracking. I wish that HRSA could come up with a less painful applicant selection and notification process. Good luck everyone, maybe Monday or Tuesday.

    Hi guys, First of all, congrats to those who did hear today! I called HRSa and I asked him if we did not get an email today, did we not get selected. He said not necessarily, because they only sent out the first one hundred. So,,, HOPE is still alive for the rest of us!

    I can definitely still login.... Well, at least we can rest assured that they won't send out notifications over the weekend. "God grant us the serenity to accept the things that we can not change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

    I can still login to the system and my status hasn't changed. Are you sure you were logging into the NSP and not the NELRP?

    Yeah, I'm sure you're right. I just need to stop thinking about it so much, I can't concentrate.

    Did anyone get the In State/ Out of State tuition email this year? Has anyone heard anything? I am still hopeful.
