    Thanks for sharing -- I will be sure to keep you updated

    Sitting in traffic for that 8a class is going to suck!
    take the DART train , guys, saves also on parking and gas money. Also EL Centro will give you a free pass after 3 weeks of attendance. :wink2:

    Yeah, at this point, all my complaints are just hot air -- I'm just happy I'm in

    It takes me 25 mins to get to a DART station, and only 35 mins to get to downtown. But, since we all know how much I hate parking near ECC, I will probably still take DART. Hehe

    I was already planning to go to ECC today to get my last Hep shot, so I'm going to stop by and see if I can get any info

    By the way, everybody (THR, NLC, ECC) can get an ECC ID and DART sticker. I get mine every semester.

    trust me, paying anywhere from $ 4 - 7 for parking evertime you go, you will love that DART train ,lol. It takes me 30min to the train too, I could be faster driving downtown. Also, your schedule says 2 or 3 days for school,hmmmmmmmm, you will be there more than that, trust me on that , too,lol.

    The schedule shows 4 days. Is there generally specific things scheduled on that 5th day, or are things just intermittent on that day? I was curious about that. I'll be using dart even though I could drive it in half the time simply because of the parking and its cost/convenience. Does anyone know if ECC has wireless internet?

    according to the schedule you should only be there on specific days but there's almost always more reasons to come up here!

    yes there's wireless connection because I'm in lecture right now

    BWAHHHHH!!!! Shouldn't you listening to your instructor's Power Point regurgitation, errr, I mean presentation with rapt admiration????

    I'm glad they have wireless...When you have more time to expand on the things that seem to bring you up there on that other day, I'd love to have some idea of what kinds of things you mean. Like study groups, or seminars, or extra skills time, etc. I'm just curious and trying to envision what my life is going to be like very soon...and trying to prepare my family. You guys have a great lecture!

    yes , that's it , seminars, skills practice, extra studies you want to do , study groups , testing that will be scheduled on extra days, you name it. I heard one of the instructos say, they own us, and I believe it now, lol.

    kathy,

    I was up here for all of the things that mysterious one mentioned. I was up here a lot more 1st semester than I have been in 2nd. it all depends on how much you can get accomlished while you're on campus. it says 9 hrs on your transcript but it's more about 90!

    Fortunately, I have really good time management skills (I have to...I've got a 6 year old! lol). Hopefully that will help me to be organized and efficient. Thank you guys so much for all your information. It really helps with the anxiety of getting started. Good luck on your finals!

    The wireless Internet is a nice touch. I didn't realize they had that. I might have to make a point to lug my laptop around.

    I hate parking at ECC! And, I just realized today it's actually gone up. Sheesh. I always have good intentions with public transportation -- I'm just usually not that organized. I guess I will have to work on that

    She wouldn't give me any information today. I will have to wait until next week.


    So, how many sets of scrubs did everyone get? 2?
