University of Maryland and UMDNJ interview wait.


I applied to VCU, UMD and UMDNJ. I was offered an Interview with VCU that I attended already so I am waiting for a response from them. I have not heard anything from from U of MD or UMDNJ. So, my question for anyone out there is

Will these schools contact me regardless, whether I am denied or offered an interview?

If they offer an interview is it usually only after the deadline?

How do they contact you by email/mail?

If anyone has been offered an interview and /or been accepted what were your stats and the stats of others in you class?

I am so anxious about this process. Looking for so information to help ease the ride!

PS- If you have any input about VCU acceptance process then that is welcome too.

I applied to UMDNJ and UM too, and like yourself the waiting game is killing me. I called both schools and no interviews are being conducted at the moment. In fact UMDNJ will NOT look at apps until next month and interviews will be in Jan. I got this information from the program advisor, so if you hear anyone saying they have an invitation to interview just know it is a LIE (as this has happened to me :uhoh3:).

Anyway, if you want to know the status of your application at UM look it up online, but most importantly call the schools and speak to someone. Unfortunately the wait is a given, so just hang in there and try not to talk about it too much. Good luck

How was your VCU interview?

The Interview with VCU was more like a get to know you session. Typical Why CRNA, Why VCU, What have you done to get here? Are you on any committees at work? I had one clinical type question, based on my resume? A Critical care test, like the CCRN questions. It really was not bad just, except for the nervousness.
