    The full time program were I attended has 5-6 test a week. That's part of the reason I choose part time. I felt like I would not be able to keep up. Good Luck!

    I'm waiting to start my program in the spring, but I'm sure it will not be a joke either. Good luck!

    It is pretty overwhelming. I actually had this talk with a few classmates and an instructor today that we are on week 8/9 and we have 3 papers due in the next 5 - 6 weeks, we have 2 tests in the next 4 weeks, we have homework and clinicals to worry about on top of that. That doesn't even count if we are having family/home issues as well.

    One classmate said "If you quit now, April 18th will come and you will be like 'dang I could be done by now' and you'll probably regret it". Which is completely true.. thinking positive help!!

    You can do it... you're just adjusting. You'll be fine. Ask your professors for guidance on managing the workload. I'm sure they have good advice.
