    Good luck on getting in. I wish I was that close to getting in. I think another year if all goes well.

    That sounds better. It is a good idea to have two tough subjects taken with 2 or 3 others that require a little less brain activity! Good luck.

    Miss JKM,
    I think you are wise to not take statistics this semester. You have quite a load of time consuming classes. The chem and A&P is a lot right there. I comend you on taking those classes. One semester in prep for nursing school, I took Anatomy, Microbiology and English 100 while working full time during the day. People thought I was crazy, but I wanted to get all of those classes out of the way, so I could apply to nursing school in the Fall and be ready to concentrate on the nursing classes. It paid off, as I have just completed my first year of nursing school with one more to go. Good luck to you.

    good luck JKM! you have your work cut out for you Good idea to drop Stats for now. My stats class this summer starts Tuesday and I will be taking nutrition with it. I hope I survive!
    Here is what I plan to take this fall:
    Chem I
    A&P II
    Developmental Psych
    Literature OR yoga (for my phys ed pre-req)

    I would like to save the last 2 easy classes for summer sessions but I cannot take more than 2 lab classes per semester in the fall/spring semseters or else I would die! I still need Micro, Chem II, and Pathophys. One of those will have to be taken over summer 2004 because I want to enter the nursing program w/O pre-reqs and by fall 2004. Lots of Luck to You !!!!!!!!!!

    Ive heard different things about statistics. Some people I know (whoa re SMART) dropped the class and other though it was not to bad. I think the pre-reqs can give you an idea....does it have any math pre reqs?

    I think your semester sounds fine. Here is what I will be taking (I have 2 young kids and do not work and I usually make As):

    Nutrition
    Zoology
    Physiology
    West Civ course
    Non West Civ course

    That is a tough schedule.... but if you are motivated and focused... it can work. When I took chemistry... it was not too easy and had a lot of homework everyday. I have heard that stats is like that as well. Good luck to you and I am sure that you will conquer!

    this is how my school explains it:
    For students who have demonstrated their ability in mathematics. Theory, measurement and analysis of frequency distributions; measures of location, variation; probability theory, theoretical distributions, statistical inference; tests of hypotheses and chi square tests. Usefulness of statistical techniques and digital computers in modern decision-making. Prerequisite: MATH 118 or equivalent with grade of C or better.
    what do you all think??? i think it is more math based but with theory.

    The statistics class at our school is pretty low stress (thank heavens). The instructor apparently lets you bring one piece of paper full of any notes or formulas you want to the test! And, the test is always composed of the exact problems that were assigned for homework! I am really glad, because having my first nursing class and statistics together this fall would probably be overwhelming, otherwise
