- Jul 15, '12 by GSUhopefulstudentCONGRATS TROOP!!!!!!! I knew you would get off the waiting list! I'm sooo happy for you!
I'm in need of some advice guys. Is anyone going to be working and doing the program? I will be working in the mornings on campus from 8-1 MW and then going to our path and concept. class. I will also be working on fridays and thursdays afternoon which makes it a total of 20 hours. Do you guys think this is too much? I'm worried :/ I'll only be taking 12 credit hours. Honors philosphy, patho, concept, nurs2010 and snhp 3000.
- Jul 16, '12 by breezy7CONGRATS, TROOP!!!!!!!!! Looking forward to meeting you in a month!! I have a feeling I'm nearing the cap on federal loans, as well. Is it determined by credit hours?
I bartend 30-35 hours a week and am doing the program as well, GSUhopeful. It's non-negotiable for me, which is why I decided to do TRAD rather than ACE. I think you should be fine! Just be prepared to say goodbye to your social life for a bit, haha. I'm right there with ya! I'm a bit frightened for when clinicals start, though. I don't know what to expect schedule-wise, and I'm trying to decide if I can continue working day shift or if I'll need to switch to night shift at my job.
I also don't have a car, and I'm realizing that it could be a biiig problem. I can get to Grady and Atlanta Medical Center easily, but I don't know about the rest of the locations. I'm super worried!
- Jul 19, '12 by troop949Whew, been to busy to post since last week, but thanks to everyone for your well-wishes. :spin: I've been working on my intake materials and secured a private loan (ugh!) for tuition. Still need to scrape up the dough for uniforms & fees though....sigh.
breezy, AFAIK, the cap on federal loans isn't based on credit hours, it's strictly based on the total amount of loans you use. I believe the cap is $57,500. Unfortunately, I used up almost all of that for my 2-year MPH program at Emory back in 2000-2002, and the remainder has been used up for spring & summer semesters @ GSU.
So, keep in mind folks, private schools are expensive, and will suck up your federal student loan cap faster than a Hoover! (lame joke, I know LOL)
- Aug 15, '12 by breezy7Soo nervous about orientation tomorrow, but I'm excited to meet you guys! Can't believe it's already here!

For those of you who have just applied for Spring 2013, here is a link to the forum!
It really helps to talk to other people who understand the daily stress of checking the mail!
Good luck to you all
