    do you think we will hear something before June?

    I really don't know when we'll hear something. I thought it was kinda odd that they went ahead & put the drug/background check buttons on the homepage, but I could just be jumping the gun.

    I'm taking a History this summer because I needed the hours. If I get in & survive Calhoun, I'll probably finish up my BSN through UAH's online program which requires it.

    Yeah that is weird. So we don't have to do it until we know for sure, right?

    I took His 201/202 from Calhoun through my high school. I honestly hated it, but I have never found history interesting! I loved my teacher as a person, she was awesome, but as a Who will you have??

    I figure it wouldn't hurt anything for me to go ahead & take it. I've completed all the other pre-reqs because I needed them for x-ray. I have ******* for 201.

    I hate history, I'm much more a science girl. But my hubby is a history buff so he said he's help me.

    I am taking chem, bio, and a microeconomics class to satisfy a behavioral/social science elective. Gonna be a LONG summer! I should be able to complete all the prereqs for my BSN so that I will be eligible to apply for Spring 2010 nursing.

    I haven't attended school in years, so I think that is what freaks me out the most!!!

    I'm taking US History, Human Growth & Development, Microbio & Intro to Computers (I needed a filler class) all this summer. I'm right there with you Momof3, it's been 7 years since I was last in college. But I'm excited about it, I need something to keep me focused.

    A&P isn't hard, it's just a lot to learn, esp in a Summer semester. I took it in high school, so I had a pretty decent background before I took it at Wallace. Math112 was easy for me, i placed into it & made an A, but that too was coming straight out of high school. My hubby is struggling with his, but he's been out of school WAY longer.

    I am pretty excited about going back too. It has been 10 years since I last was in college. I keep starting and stopping! Guess that's what happens when you have a family BEFORE you have a career. Now I am in my mid-thirties and I have no career! I wouldn't have it any other way though - love my kiddos even though I saw my first gray hair last week!

    VSBlonde, way to go with your Math - I totally stink at Math. Well now that I think about it, in college, I have gotten all A's in math, not the story in H.S. though!

    so did you use college bio scores to count towards the points?
  11. by   momof3crazyboys
    I did, but I didn't have A & P II yet.....taking it this summer. Going to be in the lab a LOT this semester! The chemistry class I took in college the first time didn't count because it didn't have a lab so I have to retake it.

    Are you attending Calhoun this summer?

    Haha after December I will be burned out. I'm already tired of school, but I'm anxious to start a career and family so I'm starting college on my last day of high school!! I am also taking a computer class this summer (cis146) so I would have enough hours for the scholarship. I only wanted to do two classes right out of high school but I'm hoping it's better this way.

    I'm okay in math... I loved trig. I'm in calculus right now and I'm strugglin to keep a low B but precalculus algebra should be better... But since it is on a college level.. I'm just so worried about all of this.

    But y'all need to let me know when you get a letter!!!

    I took chem111/112 last semester through dual enrollment. I enjoyed it. But the labs were long! We would go right after school and stay sometimes til 8:30 or later. Of couse we were group of high school kids who goofed around some so we probably could have gotten finished earlier some days ha!
