    Oh i also had over a hundred hours of volunteer work in the neonatal intensive care unit at st jude hospital, a first generation college letter, and a personal statement saying how hard my life has been but how much joy i get from working on ambulances and my current job at the nursing home. Hope this helps anyone who is trying to come up with a stellar application just shows you dont need all As in prerequisites just be very well rounded!

    TEAS done on Tuesday, not too bad. Just remember you only need a 62% that is a "D", and I'm pretty sure everyone that got in has a better gpa than a D, so just relax, breath, and for math (watch the time limit, it sneaks up on you). Next the "to do" list. Good luck and see you in the summer. Go class of 2014

    Just keep in mind guys, not to rain on anyone's parade, but Rio only offers courses once a year. If you happen to (I hope not) fail a class, you have to wat one full year before re-entering. That's the case I'm in now. If I would have known that (even though I wasn't planning on failing) I wouldn't have went with Rio.

    Once You're clear of medical reqmts you get your registration codes and then they tell you to come to orientation. I think we even got an orientation email before all this was cleared. has anyone else gotten this email? Is anyone else done with all their requirements?
