1. Same with financial aid. I have acquired one private loan and waiting to hear from another one. I also plan to roll over my 401k to an IRA with the ability to obtain student disbursements without IRS penalties.
2. I took an organic/biochemistry class last summer, and the textbook for the class I got from a current student and it looks similar to what I took last summer.
3. I have heard nothing but great things about Dr. Reinke. They say his tests are unbelievable, but you won't encounter anything on them you haven't covered or should have learned in class.
4. Baptist Health in Little Rock.
As for preparing, I had intentions of studying all summer to try and "get ahead" on stuff, but I have instead opted to be Mr. Mom this summer and spend as much time as possible with my kids, since I'm not likely going to get much of that over the next 27 months. Oh, and playing as much golf as possible.
