I was not early accepted, but I had a 3.7 total GPA, 3.5 science. Minimal volunteer hours, and a decent essay. 

Take away, bolster volunteer hours, and explain any short comings on essay. They take holistic approach, good luck.

Just wanted to say hello! I also applied to the program this year. If possible, can you elaborate on the interview itself and the timeline? Thank you!

Hello! The interview process will be announced within a few months; in April or May, you should begin to hear about EAO's. Usually EAOs, or early acceptance opportunities, are sent out first and reserved by June, and the rest of the slots will be sent for regular seats. I cannot speak for the interview for EAO, but I was told it was a lunch service with the assistant dean and the dean of the nursing program, and it was more of a vibe check with previous year students. If you do not pass the vibe check, you will be invited back with the "regular" students for an interview process with 5–10 other prospective students. On the interview day, they will take you to a room, give you a little tour and introduction, and offer you the opportunity to ask questions After which, you will be sent to another building, where you will have a table interview with 2-4 staff, professors, or administrative personnel interviewing you and asking you two questions each. Don't fake it; be yourself, be honest, and show passion. At which point they will ask if you have any questions or statements you wish to ask them, and you will be sent on your way, but they will not tell you if you made it or not; expect a reply via email 2-4 weeks after the last interview.

P.S. On November 18, there will be a preview day for the MSNE program where you can ask more questions.

Thank you! 

Does it usually take 5-6 months before they send out interview invitations?

Your welcome, it varies honestly. I believe ours was in April or May. You can always look up my cohort MSNE 2023 for a definite date or look up my previous threads. Also, you can look up other cohorts and compare their dates.
