Had my interview today and it was an amazing process! You will be there for the entire duration that your ticket states, they do provide snacks and water so don't worry! but my interview process was from 12-4:30, but it honestly didn't feel like I was there for that long because it's a group interview and it was a great time to meet your fellow hopeful nursing students and the faculty.
A quick overview:
check in (don't be late, parking wasn't readily available today)
essay (they do have white-out provided but if you have your own that works like a tape, I would totally bring one, because I wasted some time waiting for the white-out to dry)
group interview (there are 4 rounds and you are most likely going to be interviewed by two faculty members in each round)
in answering interview questions: BE YOURSELF! I honestly don't think you can prepare for it, and it should come out naturally! Almost none of the questions were questions I expected.
also! Make sure your parking ticket is validated! I used the little machine inside the campus to validate my ticket but when I went to leave the structure, my ticket wasn't validated at all and I had to pay $16...
dress code:nothing was required but 99% people came in business attire. So I definitely would not come in jeans and a t-shirt. Especially when the faculty came in their business attire.
And I was so nervous the day before the interview that I couldn't even sleep, but now having had the interview... it was one of my favorite interviews I have ever done ... ever.
Good of luck to everyone!!!!
also... there's a new summer cohort that will be starting later in August instead of June..
we were told that you can't choose which cohort you preferred but because of this, they are interviewing more people than they had in the past. We were a group of 40 today and there are two more interview groups... so approx 120 people are being interviewed and they are looking into selecting 50-60 (when normally they only pick 40)
so that was an interesting curveball over anything today.
Lastly, tentatively, results will be announced march 31st!!!
