Hey!

GPA: 3.71

GRE 304, writing 4.0

ICU: one year by matriculation (my weak point), but hey if they said one year minimum i think it's worth a shot lol

GPA: 3.89.  GRE 310 writing 4.0.   I will only have about 15 months of ICU experience by matriculation. Some research experience.  I’ve been searching for a thread also.  Only found this one because it popped up on the bottom of my screen lol.  The process is stressful.  Glad I found someone in the same process.   Stats does not always matter.  They look for people that are personable and that they can work with.   So don’t worry about the ICU experience.  If you get interview, be personable and confident, not cocky. Did you apply anywhere else?

@s.wizzleteats I’m pretty sure rolling basis means that they’ll send invitations continuously .... meaning there’s not one set date that they’ll give invitations for interviews.

Hey guys,

Just finishing up my application as well, I was reading last years app thread and was wondering do we actually put in to apply to different sites? Or they choose which sites you interview for?

I started an application for this program a couple of days ago. Still waiting for one more reference and I should be completing my GRE soon too. I hope I make it in time for this application period 😖
