    As in they finished reviewing it?

    I applied to the post-bac program at Creighton as well. But after speaking with them I found out that they will wanted to conduct interviews toward the end of February or beginning of March.

    Fingers crossed

    Not sure when we will hear from them about interview notifications but they are still currently organizing interviewer schedules and finalizing the date on top of reviewing applications. Just hang on and I'm sure you'll be hearing from them soon.

    I submitted my application back in October.

    From what I know, approximately 70 students apply to the program. About 12-14 are selected for interviews. The number of post-bac seats have been reduced from 7 to 5.

    Two slots were lost due to funding being cut off by the Indian Health Services. Meaning that those two slots were reserved for Native American applicants. Which doesn't significantly change the number of slots to begin with.

    I'm a non-traditional student who came from a disadvantaged background. My stats are: 2.9 GPA, 21 AA DAT, 22 TS and 23 PAT. I had already interviewed with Dr. Norton and was recommended to apply to the post-bac. From what people have told me, coming from a disadvantaged background is a huge factor in consideration.

    Yes, when I interviewed with Dr. Norton he said that if I were accepted into the post-bac. He wouldn't worry about me exceeding the minimum scores on the DAT.

    The issue for me is that my GPA is extremely low due to various circumstances in my life. Creighton (and most schools) have not accepted a student with such a low GPA like mine. Which is why he suggested I apply to the post-bac program at Creighton.

    Hello all! I have also applied to the program, but haven't heard anything yet. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who is dying to know what is going on. I called the school Monday and I was informed they were reviewing applications that evening, so let's all pray we get an interview!

    I know the feeling. I've been checking my email constantly hoping something will come through. I want to call and ask questions, but I've called so many times that they already know my voice :arghh:. For now, I'll just continue checking back with you all, hoping that we all hear something, SOON! :p
