Anyone hear from UAB yet? Also...

  1. Good luck to you folks interviewing at Samford today. I am sure I will run into some of you on the circuit in the next few months.

    No word from UAB yet. How about you? I am still waiting to hear from Samford. Hopefully will have a letter in the mail tomorrow. Anyone want to share their Samford interview experience?

    Did you apply for the early interview option or are you regular deadline?

    The letters for early interviews are going on now. I havent had mine yet.

    I also have not heard anything from UAB yet. The oh-so-nice woman that answers the phone said that letters would go out last week when I called to check to make sure my reference letters had gotten there.

    Of note: She said that one of my reference letters was missing, but I know it was mailed on July 7th. I am not sure if they lose documentation, but a friend of mine also had TWO that mysteriously didnt get there.

    I will let you know how the interview went. Did you apply last year?

    Hmmmm....I haven't heard anything from UAB yet. I would be shocked not to get an interview. I would be shocked if phishininau didn't get one as I know his credentials as well. I live in Cullman so it should be here by now.

    Interview at UAB was very laid back. I don't remember being asked any clinical questions. Mainly stuff like "why do you want to be a CRNA?" "Tell us a little about your nursing experience?" (this is a good one to throw in some clinical information just to let them know you know your stuff) "What do you think will be your biggest challenge during school?" "What have you done to prepare for this program?" "What are your strengths and weaknesses?" etc. I can't think of any more right now. The director is very calm and nice, he will basically look over your transcripts and work history, and he might ask you a few questions about that, but his interview is very short. You'll have 4-5 interviews that day, each lasting 5-10 minutes. Just relax, dress nice, and be professional, sell yourself. Good Luck.

    I went ahead and called UAB today to find out why I had not received an invite to interview....they had me down for the Huntsville applicant pool for which they hadn't sent out invites yet. I had them place me on the Birmingham pool along with the Huntsville pool (since I live exactly in between the two cities) and she informed me that I would get a letter in late December. She told me that including myself that there were 14 applicants in the Huntsville pool that qualified for the interview, 7 of which will be accepted.

    Hopefully having a 50% chance out of such a small group is a good thing.
