I hear what you're saying about proportionality, but 50-60 interviewed total for all specialties and lets say 30% of those accepted seems like a small cohort. my main point was that something is wrong in the numbers somewhere because the typical cohort is about 90-100 

I'm guessing the 100 applied/50-60 interviewed/15 slots was specific to the specialty that person was interviewing for. Specialties like FNP and NM probably have higher numbers across all three categories (like maybe 80 interviews for 25 slots).

There's also the possibility they have a ton of deferrals due to Covid, so admitting less new applicants. 

Re: the numbers do you think they meant there were 100 applicants for a particular specialty, and 50-60 interviews for that specialty? And then 15 are selected? I agree - if there are only 50-60 interviews in total and then they choose 15/speciality, that math doesn't work. 

So great to hear that interviews are going well! Thanks to everyone for sharing!

I think several hundred applied--like 400/600. Maybe I am misunderstanding!

Yes, definitely. The 100 number was for one specific specialty. 

So for example maybe 180 applicants for FNP, 160 for NM/WHNP, 100 to Psych, 50 to acute care, etc (I'm spitballing here). 

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t there CNM, WHNP, and the combined specialty program? So that might alter the numbers were throwing around too, since it looks like some folks may have lumped it all together. I dunno though 🙂

Yes, although I'm guessing it's a small number that do just WHNP (versus a lot of CN

Hit enter too soon 😉

 I don't think we should get too hung up on specific numbers. We know that some specialties are much bigger than others. The 100/50/15 must have been specialty specific. If I could guess, I'm guessing the 30% admission rate (of those interviewed) will approximately track across specialties, with higher absolute numbers of people admitted in the bigger specialties, but this is all speculation. We'll know soon enough!

Yesss agreed!

and on a similar note, but a tangent none the less... I pulled a tarot card after my interview today (suspend your judgement, yall😅😂) and got Justice. Which, to me, means that whats done is done, and what’s meant for you will come to you, there’s nothing else to do about it at this point. So if that resonates with anyone else, I hope it brings you comfort. But we will all know, good or bad, soon. And we will all make our way to becoming the people (nurse practitioners!) we want, somehow. No sense stressing whats out of our control (to those done with interviews).

Has anyone been rejected after an interview?

Yes. They make another cut after the interviews. But, you never know. I know someone who applied, got an interview, and was then rejected. She then applied the following year and didn't get an interview. The subsequent (3rd) year she applied again and got in. So, if you don't get in, just apply again if this is where you want to go...

I got the same info, but she went further and told me (15 mins ago) that from there they pick about 15 for each specialty. So, ~25% admitted? 
 

Also- not feeling super confident after my interview (from my own behavior, not anything she said.) getting emotional support Mexican food as I type this 😭😅

Even though I haven't had mine yet, I've definitely already though through getting food to soothe me no matter what, but I'm a monster when it comes to food 😭

 No judgement here LOL! Like you said, stressing afterwards won't change whatever decision they make (unfortunately). I mentioned my interviewers name in my essay so I'm super nervous 😅

Had my interview today. I don't feel entirely bad about it but... unlike my interview with BC it felt very business like. It was very question and response rather than conversational, 37 minutes total. 

In any event, I got into Columbia's MDE/DNP today, which certainly takes the edge off!
