    How was the first day? What does your schedule look like? Any tips already?
  3. by   PrayToTheUnicorn
    I'm not in any position to give out tips yet. It's going to be a lot of work so get organized early. I've already had an instructor who wondered why we hadn't done the reading before class (it's the second day of school!)
    My schedule for the first 8 weeks is m-f --- 2 days per week from 7:30a to 1:30p, one day from 11:30 to 1:30,, one day from 7:30a to 3pm, and one day is clinicals from 7-2. Everyone's schedule is slightly different however, varying by days of the week but the classes are the same. Clinicals are starting at hospital sites on week 3, so the first two clinicals are at school doing skills.
    Term B (october to dec) is the second 8 weeks and everyone has classes 3 days per week for an average of 4-5 hours, and 2 days per week clinicals from 7a-2p.

    Hi, I turned my application for Spring 2013 a couple months ago. I missed the TEAS requirement by .5 points, I'm so bummed. So I have to wait for an answer. I met all the other requirements. If anyone has any information on when the committee will make a decision?

    If everything else is in order I would retake the TEAS....With you missing the TEAS score they may look at your application LAST....But you can take it anywhere just make sure it is the same version they are giving at Resurrection....If you do not so hot retake it immediately (a week) because you will get the same test

    Have you talked to Juan Miranda...When I took the TEAS and didn't think it would be high enough I asked what he thought and I felt he didn't BS me....Was honest and gave good feedback....Also look into writing the personal statement....unlike other schools I feel they look at EVERYTHING then make a decision and if you do not fit the minimum they will still consider you.....

    For people who got accepted, congrats!! I was so happy that I got accepted, (at the time I was at Starbucks) I went to the bathroom and danced Happy Dance

    So my last Cumulative GPA was 3.48, science wise 3.0, TEAS 72. (I was scheduled to retake TEAS but since I got the acceptance call I no longer needed to ;P wasted 70 bucks).

    The reason why I got accepted, I think part of reason is because I applied rather early (finished my application in July). I was actually aiming for Fall 2012 but I missed the deadline so I just applied to Spring 2013 instead.

    Now, has anyone had their status changed online for the application? I had to send my last transcript in couple days ago, and John said he'll have to check my transcript to make sure I finished my pre-reqs and then the status would change. My status is still application complete, not accepted (Although I got a phone call that I got accepted) :P

    I know I shouldn't be worried since I know I finished all my pre-reqs but I feel so anxious!
