Feeling a little discouraged after this app cycle and wanted to seek some advice of improvements on my application for next cycle. Really bummed I wasn't accepted and feedback from the schools was not very helpful. I applied to 3 schools with interviews at each and was rejected from my state school and a private college nearby and waitlisted at another.
PCE: 900 as a CNA (I'm at 1400 and counting right now)
HCE: 220 as a hospital volunteer
Shadowing: 38 hours
Research: 500 with a publication and presented at 2 conferences
LORs: PA, research PI, Lead RN at work
Feeling like it's my interviewing that needs work so if anyone recommends any material to improve, it would be appreciated!
