    Hello,

    I know some have talked about working full-time while completing this program is near impossible, but has anoyone heard of it being done. I work a full time job and don't think I will be able to bump down to part-time because of financial dependence. Any advice would be appreciated!

    it is my understanding that there will not physically be enough time in the day. from what people have told me, they were only able to work one day a week tops :/ but then again everyone's different so who knows

    thank you sooo much. Your response was very helpful

    Also, those waiting to hear back, good luck. I understand how frustrating it is because i definitely think this program is very disorganized and feel like they keep us in the dark for a long time on a lot of things :/

    The book list will come out prior to the start of class. There will be bundle options, but you can easily buy (or rent) from Amazon or elsewhere. There were several times I purchased a previous edition for way less money (like $15 rather than $100), and still got As in the class because the information really didn't change all that much. My professor for pediatrics strongly discouraged the older edition, but the information was the same. On the other hand, when my Community Health professor found out some had the older edition, she listed reading assignments with corresponding page numbers for both editions.

    I bought my main texts as an ebundle but most classmates went with physical texts. I chose electronic because I liked the ability to have my textbooks with me on my phone, and some of my studying was done in 10 minute intervals when I found a little down time here or there (like waiting for my kid's school bus). Unfortunately, this meant I couldn't sell them back when I was done. At the main orientation at Storrs, there was a textbook representative who walked us through the bundle options.

    Does everyone who meets all of the prereqs get in? Or is it more competitive than that?

    when was the last day for the deposit for the people who just recently got accepted?
  11. by   Eglute
    It is September 26th.
  12. by   Eglute
    BTW, I was accepted before but the letter about the deposit came only on the September 12th. Orientation is scheduled for 10/13. So I am pretty sure you may get some news after 9/26. Don't loose the hope!!!
