Haha, you deserve to shout about how excited you are! I'd be doing the same, as well as hopping up and down!
Hmmm, not sure about the recommendations since I didn't have a chance to look at 2 out of the 3. The one I saw was really good. A B- in Chem isn't bad. I know of a lot of students who get C's in Chem, but who cares anyway.... You've already been accepted!!! HURRAY!
I really hope we'll meet each other at orientation as well.... maybe even schedule a meet up outside before it begins.
) Maybe if I just keep chanting - I'm going to get into BHSN, I'm going to get into BHSN, I'm going to get into BHSN - that it will bring me good luck...haha!
I didn't know that the passing grade for BHSN was 80%. Are you sure? I thought I saw someone say it was 75%. Where did you hear about 80%...eek, that makes me nervous especially given all the threads I've seen that say that almost their entire class is just squeaking by with a 75. However, you are exactly right that we should hold ourselves to better standards than a "C". It would just be nice to have that extra 5 point leeway in case we have a bad exam so that we don't have to constantly worry about one test taking us down!
Like you, I have also been leaning towards BHSN because of the extra clinical time, which just seems so invaluable, and their accelerated option. While I don't have Micro, sociology, and psych completed yet, I plan to take Micro and Psych over the summer if I get accepted. Then I will only have to worry about sociology, which I would probably try to CLEP before the first year of the program is over.
Have you thought about what supplies you'll be picking up yet??? Haha, I've already thought about it. I am definitely interested in the Littmann Master Cardiology steth, as long as the school allows it. I also want to get the Livescribe pen for voice recording/note taking in class. If you haven't seen it yet, you definitely have to check it out. It looks absolutely fantastic.

O yea, I wrote back to you on a different thread that I found out that we are allowed to use voice recorders. Not sure about PDAs though.
Well, I'm off to check todays mailbox. I don't expect to hear back this quickly, but you never know. I can wish for a quick response. Whether good or bad, I just want to know!
