    Ho hum, any day now....They are definitely taking longer. I wonder if they'll actually call all of those numbers on the volunteer forms, some of mine are quite old. Hoping for some news soon, ready to know when I'll be graduating!!

    I volunteered at hospital for about 6 months. And at a daycare and after school program that tutored middle and high school kids for about a semester.

    I have been volunteering with Hospice for about a year now. It is a great organization and they can always use volunteers.

    I volunteered at a hospital for 4 years, the Big Brothers Big Sisters program for 3 years (still current), Atlanta Center for the Visually Impaired for a year, and i shadowed my physician for 100 hours. I've volunteered at quite a few other places too but these are the ones I was able to hand in in time.

    Still nothing! I also volunteer at a hospice, but only since August so not sure if there is a minimum number of hours to count. Maybe they are mailing letters all at once this year...who knows!

    Thanks for all the ideas! I'm not applying for at least another 8 months so I'm going to try to start volunteering every weekend when I'm not at work!

    HI all!
    I received my letter yesterday for the ACE program! SO relieved since this was my second time applying. The letter was typed on Oct 25, so not sure why it took so long b/c I live closeby. My TEAS score was 90 and program GPA 3.84 (been retaking courses that I took SEVEN years ago at UGA in which I received a B in to increase that Program GPA...). I have had to retake PSYC1101 (and I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, ridiculous, but I guess it paid off!)

    Best of luck to everyone, and I hope to meet you in January!!
