    I found your school email address on the school directory or at least I think it is you so I sent you an email.

    Regarding the orientation date - did you get an email or letter about those dates? I haven't received anything yet and wanted to make sure the date was set because I have a work trip that week and need to reschedule it if that is our orientation date.

    Hi Kylie002,

    I commuted from Vermont for several years with my job before moving to the valley so I understand about keeping "home base" running while you're in school/working out of town. I just tried adding you as a friend to see if I could email you directly, but let me know if you're still looking for a room to rent.

    Lisa, I accepted you as friend on this site, but I don't know if I can get or send messages on this site yet. I'm still thinking about finding a room, but it would have to be fairly cheap as it would only be 2-3 nights per week and maybe some times not even....but, still interested. Will you be at orientation???

    Hi Kylie,

    Yes, I'll be at orientation. Look forward to meeting you - and all our classmates - there.

    Thanks for making the group, rach0019!

    Does anyone know anything more about the orientation aside from the date/time? I'm wondering if we'll need to bring anything specific. Also, I haven't gotten anything in the mail aside from the official acceptance letter and some financial aid info...I'm hoping there aren't important forms that I didn't receive...

    Hi all,
    Just as an FYI - they updated the website with the orientation information. Check it out here: Second Bachelor's Track | UMass Amherst School of Nursing
    I can't wait to meet everyone!

    Hi Rach0019: I can't find that group on FB - typed in exactly as you have it ("Second Bachelor's..etc) and no results. Likely an operator error - but wanted to check to see if anyone else having trouble accessing. Thanks.

    Hi everyone! I just got accepted to Amherst today and am so excited! Except I am waiting to hear back from one more school to make my final decision. I was wondering what you guys like about it and prices of everything from housing to tuition. Just overall how you like the program? It would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
