okay - I believe Richmond is the location with the largest cohort, just wondering. 

Congratulations & good luck! I'm dreading the waiting game LOL! Do you know when they should be contacting us about interviews?

from previous threads from last year’s cohort  I saw they started sending interview invites out around April 5-6 then acceptance around May

Hi everyone,

I am so happy to see this thread. I applied to Richmond site. Now just waiting. I am soooo nervous! I have no idea if I even have a chance. Anybody applying second time?

Hi, 

  First time applying for any CRNA program. I'm a bit anxious, but oh well. Good luck to you

This is my first time applying as well. I spoke to one of the VCU CRNA grads and he told me they “like” to waitlist first time qualified applicants and take them in the next year. I hope it doesn’t apply to all. Good luck to you as well.

I just wanted to say that you should probably submit it asap as NursingCAS can kick back your application if something is not entered correctly or missing info. They did it to me, even though I double checked everything. You can always add your exam after you submitted and paid.

Oh I did not know that. It's a good school so probably really competitive. I will be a bit sad If I get rejected, but at least I tried. I am also applying to other schools.

Most people apply to multiple schools, I put all my eggs in one basket. VCU is competitive so I was surprised to see that they waived GRE for this application period. Not that GRE is useful at all in determining if the applicant is a good student. Thanks for your responses. It’s so nice to just talk to someone about this because I haven’t told anybody at work that I am applying. I don’t know how people will react and don’t want to stir anything LOL
