    UPenn application 2021

    Thanks! It's going good so far, almost done with the first semester. I have to admit, it was a hard decision for me but I had already left my workplace when Penn notified me. Anyway, just be knowledgeable of the medications and procedures that you often encounter at your workplace. Be yourself---most programs try to get the students that they think are the best fit for their programs. Also, be ready for the worst. Applying for CRNA school is a tough time, but you just have to show them that you are passionate about what CRNAs do and why you want to be part of it. I am sure that you will get your turn soon, good luck!

    UPenn application 2021

    Hey, yeah I was wait listed and they didn't get in touch with me until July.. I think? Unfortunately, I had to decline it because I was accepted to another program that was way cheaper and started sooner.

    I also applied last year. I agree with what TPN had to say about the interview! I don't know how it will be this year, but last year, we waited for a long time for decisions to come out. Interviews were held around March and we didn't get the decisions until April. Goodluck!

    CRNA school admission ?

    I would apply now. You're not wasting your time/money if this is something you want to do. Most programs look at more than just your stats so don't worry and good luck!
  5. Maybe that person has more than a year of ER experience..? or more than a year of nursing experience. I don't know.. but you have to consider that most programs are getting more and more competitive. Not to mention the applicant pool. Also, you have to understand that they're not requiring ICU experience just to delay you; they want you to be well prepared before stepping into the field.

    Has anyone gotten into school WITHOUT the GRE?

    You can. If you applied to schools that don't require GRE then there shouldn't be any reason why they wouldn't consider you. That was actually me a year ago. I was taking forever to study for my GRE and I was getting anxious so I decided to apply to two schools that didn't require it while I was still studying. I eventually took it cause I wanted to apply to more schools and increase my chances of getting in but those two schools actually accepted me. If you're confident with your GPA and your clinical experience, I say go for it.

    I got my acceptance letter today but I'm already committed to another school starting this fall. I'm still sorta considering this though.. check your applications!

    UTK CRNA 2020

    I doubt that they'll give everyone a spot in the waiting list and if they do, that'll just make it hard for them. Also, we don't get to hear until June 3rd for the DNP approval and maybe some people will lose interest if that doesn't happen (?) Anyway, is anyone looking for roommates? haha no clue on which area to live in

    I would give it at least until tomorrow. Maybe they’re still trying to figure out who will be on the waitlist before sending out official letters or something. Have you tried calling?
