  1. Congrats Sydnii, Dahlia and NoName! Was impressed by all of you and not surprised you got it! ????
  2. I might! Flying in from Denver...what were you thinking?
  3. For those of you who have interviewed or have some insight into topics addressed, what kinds of questions have you encountered in regards to healthcare reform, medicare/Medicaid, affordable care act, social security etc.? Any advice on how to respond to these types of questions?
  4. Generally I was leaning towards that being the case but some schools say that Gen Chem 1 for example is specifically required as a prereq and I know I applied to one this cycle that required it be within the last 8 years. Next cycle that course will be outside of that time frame. I'm guessing I can get specific approval from the school to accept the credits from a higher level course as I'm sure they would prefer that to retaking the lower level, like you said. Thank you so much for your response, it was very helpful. Definitely overwhelming trying to fulfill the various requirements of different programs.
  5. Received a call today but could not answer and can't seem to reach anyone when I call back. Do they call for rejections or do you think this is a good sign of an interview invitation? Nervous!
  6. So while the jury is still out for this application cycle, I was denied an interview at my preferred school and I will need to register for spring classes very soon if I'm going to work on improving my GPA to attempt the next cycle. I have been working as an RN for over 4 years, a majority of my pre-reqs are from prior to nursing school (so next cycle, some may need to be retaken just because they're too old) and I've got a couple C's in my older sciences. Most recent sciences have been almost all A's (including O-chem) so I think I've demonstrated much improved study habits. All in all I feel pretty certain on what I need to do to make myself a better candidate and improve my chances, mainly improve GPA, cast a wider net and stay well ahead of my deadlines. I also plan to take the GRE which will greatly expand my options. My question is, would it be more beneficial for me to, for example, retake my Chem 1 with a grade of C a long time ago or take a more advanced science like O-chem II? I'll only have spring and summer next year to take classes before I reapply so I want to make the most of that time. Also, first time using this forum which would have likely helped me during this cycle but hoping to get it right this time. ;)
