Rush GEM Summer 2013


Anyone getting their application ready or already submitted? November 1st will be here sooner than we think! Super excited and cannot wait to officially apply! Taking organic chemistry now and looking for an online nutrition course to complete pre-reqs and working on 2 more letters of recommendations...whew....anyone else?

yay the deadline was extended! now we have until december!

Submitted and invited for an interview already.

Also got an interview. Looks like well hear more after January 2nd.

congrats!!! were you both given interview dates already?

Yep, I heard back sometime around December 9th. I submitted by application around December 1st. They said they would give more information regarding interviews sometime after January 2nd.

I heard the same thing back...so nervous! Already rcv'd acceptance at another school, seems like Rush takes forever! The website says decision by March but that seems like short notice for a May start. Has anyone had luck finding the average GPA and other qualifications of current students accepted to the program?

Good luck everyone!

Congrats! I think the gpa was something like 3.25 but I'm not sure. I submitted sometime in October so my nerves are totally shot! Lol

Good luck : )

Almost interview time!!!!!!! Bundle of nerves over here- how are you all managing the wait?

My interview is tomorrow! So nervous, but i can do it, really need this.....

Good luck! Mine is a week from tomorrow. I can't wait.

I had my interview yesterday with *******- he was awesome! He made me feel very welcomed and comfortable. It didn't feel like I was under a microscope which was my fears, it just felt like we were having a conversation. He just asked the typical questions like why rush, why nursing, how do I handle stress, and one ethical question. I felt it went well until he asked me about the CNL and I honestly wasn't really sure what that part was other than what it stood for. I hope I didn't blow it based on a lack of understanding so my advice to any going into interview- take some time and learn what that cert is and can do for you.

Good luck y'all : )

Doh! Sorry about^*^ that...I was just excited and forgot the no name thing : )


tjscarce, how was your interview yesterday?

I had mine on Thursday, it went well. Basic questions, why ruh, why nursing, an ethical question and just telling them about yourself. Pretty laid back. Make sure you have a few questions of your own to ask them and good luck to everyone! Just a waiting game now-Brendan

Hey guys! I am already accepted to the Summer 2013 program (I got waitlisted for Spring and didn't get in) but would love to make a Facebook page or something when everyone starts to find out if they were accepted! Keep us posted and good luck!


Sorry for the late response, my interview was great. I will say if was more fun that i anticipated, so just keep it cool. Also, be sure you have 1 or 2 questions, cos that really kept us flowing. It was good over all.

OMG he asked me the same thing. And it didn't seem like he agreed w my answer! Do you remember who your interviewer was?
