    How exciting!!! I'm still on the 80's so I might not start anytime soon, but it's good to know the timeline on when I could possibly start. I'm also working on my BS CLS (clinical lab science) and I have about almost a year from now until I get it done. At least I'm getting something done while I'm patiently waiting for my # to come up.

    Good luck to you again and I hope you get everything you needed before the class starts.

    Hi everyone,

    Did anyone get accepted under the new point system? If so and don't mind sharing, what was your total points? I'm curious to know if I'm in the ballpark.


    Also, where are the clinical sites for Palomar College?

    Thanks!

    If y'all haven't gone through the orientation meeting for Palomar yet for starting the next semester or even later I HIGHLY recommend buying the math book Dosage Calculations by Gloria Pickar and buying Fluids & Electrolytes Made Incredibly Easy and studying both of those before you start. Know how to do all of the math calculations and memorize the values for the electrolytes and have a general idea of what those hyper and hypo conditions look like so you can just fine-tune it when you get to the second test in school Those are two major study hogs that you might want to have pretty solid before you get in. Also make sure you know your physiology really well. Refresh on the physiology beforehand if you're feeling a little fuzzy there.

    I just started first semester this last 2012 and it's kicking my butt and I'm a very smart girl. It's a great program though. Just PLEASE don't get overwhelmed and quit. People are already dropping out and really it's just a matter of fortitude, this program is totally worth it. It seems that most of the people who don't make it through quit rather than fail. It's such a shame.

    As far as the points system goes, I don't believe that they really are admitting half and half wait-list and points-system. It seems to be mostly wait-list. SO even though I expected to start fall of 2012 or spring of 2013, I started this January. That's awesome for you girls on the wait-list! Clinical sites are long-term SNF places for the first half of clinicals and then we move to acute care in a hospital for the last 5 or 6 weeks.

    I recommend to all of you people to just be diligent and work through the stress. This isn't easy but it sure is fun and very intense. I'm done with my first 5 weeks and it's been great. My classmates and I are family and it has been a wonderful experience thus far. Be professional, be diligent and study smart, not hard. Feel free to message me with any questions you might have, I'm happy to help.

    I'll be there too so I will see you. I'll look for you lol...Honestly, I'm still deciding because my daughter starts kindergarten in August as well and I still need to arrange babysitters and all. Also, I'm thinking too because I'm taking BS CLS and I should be done in December, but if I take the August starts, then I'll have to stop the other. I said yes when they sent me an e-mail because part of me is telling me to take it. Been waiting for this and I really want to get it done sooner. If there's no spot for august then I'm completely okay with it. Plus, I'm also working full time and have to quit.Do you live close to Palomar?

    Oh I understand! I live in temecula and will have to quit my full time job too! We just bought a house and had a baby, which makes 3 kids for us. Last semester I got the notice that I may start early but I said if at all possible I dont want too. They allowed since I wasnt actually deferring because it wasnt my turn jus a possibility. Also the baby was so young so im glad I didnt start last semester. I finished my ba at csu sm and am happy but that means no grants for palomar, & they dont certify bank loans so all out of pocket. Thats why im so nervous... finances!

    I live in Temecula too, wow. We bought a house here in 2008. So you have 3 kids? That must be hard, I have 1 and I'm complaining lol. Finances, fortunately I have my husband's GI bill to cover school expenses and his income alone should cover monthly bills. We have savings that I might have to use when needed. Yeah they told me if decided not to start in Fall then I won't lose my spot in Spring. Have you thought about babysitters for your kids? Congrats on the little one
