I did my one on one interview today and it went well. I was so nervous, but glad it's over with.
So for those of you in the group interview today how'd it go?
I did my FNP interview today and it went Ok.
The interview was a very different format than other 'traditional' interview formats.
But I actually enjoyed the process and felt good.
It was a great experience.
So, we shall see.
Congratulations on getting through the interview! The waiting game begins again. I was just wondering, how big was your interview group? I'm still full of anticipation, since our group doesn't go until tomorrow.
There were about 18people for the interview and they have 19 openings for FNP program. (They already have 1 person in the program because this person was already accepted last year but delayed to start the program.)
Wow that's not many spots. Do you know how many people they are interviewing?
I was told by my interviewer that there are 24 FNP and 24 CM spots. I think she said they were interviewing 80 people, but I could have that wrong seems like they would interview more.
Hi All!! I just found this site...wish I would have come across it earlier!! I was in the Thursday interview. Glad to have it over with, but very anxious to hear back!!
2bgr8nurse - Did they say they are interviewing 80 people total for both programs, or 80 for each? Also, in our interview I think they said there were only 40 spots total for both programs, but sometimes they are able to have more in one than the other (i.e. 22 FNP and 18 CM). Is it actually 24 spots in each?
In our interview, they mentioned that everyone who is accepted should hear by next Friday. Does anyone know if that's true for everyone or just early admits? I was confused because Liza's original email with the timeline said decisions would be announced in October. Also, does anyone know if there is a third interview group scheduled?
Congratulations to everyone who has interviewed!! Keep us posted if anyone hears anything!! Good luck to all!!
She just said 48 students total and I think you're right it could be more of one than the other. How many people were in your group? Last year they had two initial interview groups and then added another one a month later. I bet they meant just the early admitts will know by Friday. I think last year we knew about our status by October and then those of us who were waitlised had the pleasant experience of waiting for another two torturous months (and then end up not getting in anyways). But enough about that, let's all just think positive thoughts. Good luck everyone!!!
I believe there were 19 in my group. The waitlist experience sounds terrible! I'm so sorry you had to go through that. Do you know how many got in off the waitlist last year? What number were you? Best of luck to you this cycle !!
I counted 13 in our group yesterday, and my understanding is that there was another smaller group yet to be interviewed. It sounded to me that they would let those who are admitted know by the end of the week, but that waitlisted would take longer. We shall see. I thought that the feeling of anticipation would have ebbed by now - and I thought wrong.
Dream2BeFNP, were you in the 10am group? I haven't heard much from people in other groups, so I don't know what other interview sessions there were.
Good luck all!
They told our group that there were only two scheduled FNP interviews (8/26 and 8/28).
They may schedule some more interviews based on the results of these two interviews but they probably will not conduct more interviews if they don't have to.
But the Director of FNP told us that they have total of 20 postions (but one was already taken by a last year's accepted candidate) So, they have only 19 positions left for FNP and they have 20 positions for CM.
Those who are already interviewed on these two days for FNP should receive a phone call by the end of this coming Friday if they are accepted. Those who are waitlisted will receive an email. The remaining unaccepted people will receive a rejection letter during the following weeks.
Based on the number of people who are interviewed during two interviews, most of us who are already interviewed probably will be either accepted or be waitlisted.
I have one more interview coming up with SM for CM program.
Good luck to all of us!!!
Let's pray that we all get into to the program of our choice!!!
Maia99 - I was in the 10AM group on Thursday. As far as I know, there have only been two interviews thus far. Do you know when the third group interview will take place?
Atmywindow - Good luck on your CM interview!! When is it?
