Who's going to Anesthesia school?

  1. We've had several threads from everyone saying they were accepted to various schools, but if everyone is willing let's do one big thread for everyone that will be starting anesthesia school this summer or fall. If you don't mind please include where you applied, the status from each school ( meaning didn't get an interview, interviewed and not accepted/made alternate/accepted), and the school you chose and why. Thanks, so much!

    I applied to :
    1) Medical College of Georgia- interviewed and made alternate
    2) Samford (in Birmingham)- interviewed and accepted
    3) University of Alabama at Birmingham- interviewed and accepted and will be going there this fall. I chose UAB because I loved the Director and all of their clinicals are in Birmingham, so I won't have to travel all over the state.

    Univsersity of Cincinnati: Applied, interviewed, accepted, will start in Sept.
    Middle Tennessee School of Anesthesia: Applied, interview offered but declined after acceptance to UC

    I chose UC because I think it is a great school and it has a smaller program than MTSA. Also, all clinicals are located pretty much in the downtown Cincinnati area whereas at MTSA, you have to go to several locations that are far away (even in other states). Since anesthesia school will be stressful enough, I just didn't want the added stress of spending more time away from my family.

    -Interviewed at East Carolina and flat out rejected.
    -Interviewed at Raleigh and got third alternate. Offered position after the new year and I start in August.

    Location was a big issue for me and my family, which is why I did not venture anywhere west of Raleigh. I know a fair amount of graduates from Raleigh and I feel like their integrated style will be a good fit for me.

    I applied to:
    1) St Raphaels School of Nurse Anesthesia: Interviewed, selected and accepted.
    2) New Britain School of Nurse Anesthesia: Interviewed, selected and declined.
    3) Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island: Interviewed, selected and declined.

    I will start the program in May of this year. Location, director and clinical sites all were factors in my decision. Congrats and good luck to all!

    U of New England - interviewed and accepted
    Gonzaga - interviewed and not accepted
    Midwestern - no interview, not accepted.
    Samuel Merritt - this is complex. I did a phone interview and I BOMBED. Very bad. The medium was hard, I was talking to 8 people, sound quality wasn't great, and I had the flu. In addition, an acquaintance/casual friend was brutally murdered two days before the interview and I was still feeling shaken up. SO - the wonderful people there are giving me a second chance. I'm an alternate and I'm flying out to redeem myself. If I do well I will move into a higher alternate position with a very good chance of acceptance.

    So I'm going SOMEWHERE - one of two wildly divergent possibilities.

    Only applied to one school, U. Southern California. Interviewed yesterday and will find out the status in ten days. I'll keep you posted....

    Apais, that is great! I was waiting to hear from you about the result of SMC. I am so happy for you. When do you fly out?

    Has anyone heard about their status post interview on March 12th? I haven't heard anything yet. What did you think of the interview? I thought that everyone was so nice.

    1. U Pitt-interviewed, was accepted as part-time, alternate to full-time
    2. LaRoche/Allegheny Valley Hospital-interviewed and was accepted full time
    3. U Cincinnati- interviewed, was accepted full time
    4. Old Dominion U- interviewed offered, but I declined it
    5. U at Buffalo- no word from them, but I had them toss my application after I was accepted to UC.

    I chose UC for its class size and close proximity of its clinical sites to each other. I also liked that it had more time with pediatrics than the other schools I applied to, even though peds scares the poop out of me. Most importantly, UC consistently puts out a decent basketball team every year (until they move to the Big East Conference)!

    Hi all!

    I applied to -- 1) Univ. of Akron -- interviewed and accepted -- starting in June.
    2) Univ. of Pitt. -- cancelled interview and w/d application after
    acceptance to Akron.
    3) Case Western -- cancelled interview and w/d application after
    acceptance to Akron.

    I started taking graduate classes at the Univ. of Akron last fall...and have 5 core MSN courses already completed. Also -- this program is front-loaded and the clinical sites are about 15 minutes from my house!

    Good luck everyone!

    Applied to Albany Medical College: interviewed and accepted. Will start this upcoming fall.

    Also applied to U of Buffalo: interview granted but declined d/t acceptance at AMC.

    I picked AMC because of the small class size, diverse clinical sites, and that it grants a Masters of Science in Anesthesia upon completion.
