I'm a junior. I'm in the second semester of the 5 semester program. Right now I have my class schedule like so:
Monday from 2-4:45
Tuesday from 2-4:45
Wednesday from 8-12
Thursday: Hospital rotation from 3-9
Friday: Hospital rotation from 3-9
Only advice I have is that when you apply have EVERYTHING ready. They're a bit disorganized. It's best to be prepared. Don't hold off on taking the NET exam. Get CPR certification. You need immunization records and some titers. If you wanna know which ones PM me and I'll find my copy I had to fill out. And you need insurance.
If you have any specific questions about getting in feel free to PM me. I found it surprisingly easy to get in seeing as how I don't have the best GPA; more like the minimum.
It just required some time (waiting, which is the WROST part of it all) and moneeeeey. The NET, insurance, CPR, uniform (which they make you buy before finding out whether you got in, why...? I do not know
) and I needed some titers done and a PPD. It adds up quickly. $__$
