    I have an interview @ UAB Monday. Anyone else? Anyone interview on Friday? I'm scared to death!:uhoh21:

    I interviewed on Friday. Like any other interview, you should be well prepared. I hate to give advice because I won't know if what I did was effective until I have a slot. I had 5 separate interviews over 2 hours. Most of the interviewers were very comforting and friendly. Best of luck and let us know how it went!

    I have heard that like the other in-state school there are really not many, if any, clinical questions. If that is the case, I am REALLY looking forward to my interview.

    Did you interview in Birmingham?
  6. by   da-redhead
    Yes, I interview in Birmingham this afternoon. I hope it stops raining . When is your interview? Do you live in the Birmingham area?
  7. by   Phishininau
    No, I live in the Auburn area. I interview this Thursday. Are you in Birmingham? Which clinical site are you interviewing for?
  8. by   badgernurse
    I don't think I had any clinical questions. Mostly, why CRNA, why UAB, etc. Did you get accepted to Samford? Which clinical site are you interviewing for?

    Sorry, your question was to badgernurse and I replied. I interviewed today for the "central component" as they called it. I assume my clinicals will be in Birmingham, which is where I live. Good luck Thursday.

    Thanks for the good luck wishes. I really hope it works out, the program at UAB is much more economical that my other option. Hopefully we will get to know each other in class next year.

    My interview went well. Everyone was nice. The director told me that they should get letters out by the latter part of next week. One of the instructors told me that most of their alternates got a slot last year. So if I get an alternate letter I will be excited (not as excited as I will be to get an acceptance letter). If I get denied, I know now how to make myself a better applicant next year and will know what to expect as far as the interview goes.

    My interview was very pleasant as well. Very professional in how it was conducted. It is anybody's guess at this point. From what they said, it depends on the applicant pool vs. the number of slots....and of course, what they are looking for. I was told by all of the interviewers that there was much more to it than just numbers/scores.
    They weigh everything as a whole package, particularly information obtained during the interviews. It could go either way. I will accept whatever is decided and like you, will work towards personal improvements if not accepted this year. I plan to do it all again next year, if this year doesn't work out. It is worth it. Best of luck and let us know.
