    I just figured that since they require for us to travel, that it would have been nice for them to compensate for the cost... Oh well...

    I got an email as well, but there is no information available on the Blackboard. I emailed her back asking to make it accessible for us. So far, haven't got any answer.

    I went home after the first orientation and got just the Craven and Med-Surg books! Now the booklist from D came in and I'm scrambling to get the rest in time without paying bookstore prices! Ahhh!

    Anyway, I was late on Thursday but people said that now they are saying there is no Skills Lab the first week. Has this been triple confirmed? I meant to call since V told me Monday that there WAS. I put it off because I can't deal with the frustration!

    Anyway, happy last weekend before craziness starts!

    What is the booklist from D?? So far I only have to Craven books to start, do you think we'll need the med-surg right away too?

    I also heard that we don't have skills lab next week, but like you said, has it been triple confirmed?

    Only 1 and a half more days!!
