I'm new to the forum so hello to everyone. fyi, I applied two schools in the southeast (USC Columbia and Western Carolina). Sadly SC has declined to interview me. I must say I am disappointed however, this is not discouraging me from reaching my goals. Can anyone give me advice as to what I could do to improve my chances of getting into school? I would say I need improvement on my GRE verbal. I have one year experience fresh out of nursing school at a cvru at a level one trauma center in upstate SC. Though my experience has been short, I have had great experience with critical thinking skills and high acuity patients. Any advice would help.
