    All my classes are registered as well. Does anyone have any idea when tuition is due?
    According to the calendar, it has to be paid before April 8 to avoid delinquent fees.

    So I was reading the handbook and it says tuition is due at the time of registration or pay 65% of tuition if you opt for deferred tuition payment.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. I was wishfully thinking I could have more time. What's your first 7.5 weeks look like? I am going to be CRAZY busy. Unfortunatley, the only co-req's I didn't take yet just happen to be Nutrition and Med Math. So I am taking Nutrition online (which I hear is VERY tedious). For some reason I thought I could take nutrition in the summer and not worry about it first semester. Well here's my first 7.5 weeks-

    Nutrition online
    Tuesday 2-4
    Thursday 8am-4
    Friday 8am-1:30
    Saturday 8am-3:45 (Medical Math starts at 12 pm for me so that explains the long day)

    I'm glad you still got what you wanted. What time did you leave?
    Sorry so late responding.... After you left things started moving very quickly. I was probably in the last 15-20 people called and I left like maybe 15 minutes after you. I didn't get my first choice schedule but after I got home I saw I got really good instructors and I could have ended up with VERY difficult ones. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate instructors who challenge us but I don't appreciate the ones who just read the material off of their texts and then quiz us. To me that is not an instructor. Did you check out your instructors yet?

    We've got the same schedule except I don't have nutrition and Med Math. I read up on my instructors today and ppl had some positive feedback. I can't wait for classes to start. I was wondering when we're able to purchase our books because I'd really like to get a head start on reading.

    I am glad you are hearing good things about your instructors. I think we can buy the books now. The bookstore has a website you can shop off of. Anyone ever tried renting books? I have heard about people doing it but I am not really sure how the whole process works. I may look further into it. I really need to get started on reading the student handbook.

    I don't think you can use a book voucher from the book stores website. I've rented books before, but I figured I may need to keep my books for reference.

    I waited to about the start of the semester to post, sorry. I am in the 2012 fall classes, my 1st and 2nd 7.5 weeks have been HELL! although I made it through, im seriously considering changing my career path. I hate to discourage anyone, but the whole program is so dissorganized, really, it's absolutly pathetic! although 75% may not seem like much, but the endless nights of studying, and seeing know results you will take that 75 and run. Avoid teachers who doesn't explain rationales. Rationales are a major portion of this program. And if you have a professor who will not explain the reason they came up with the answers, your done. For instance, NUR 110, not going to name the instructor, on the test, there was a question on a patient who has diabetes. EVERY STUDENT IN THE CLASS GOT THIS QUESTION WRONG! 60 people, and when she realized that one word caused the change in the question leading to the inccorect answer she did not give any of us credit. Her reason was, IM a nurse you guys are trying to be nurses, If you failed by answering just that qusestion inccorect. Then, you didnt need to pass anyway. And those of you who barely made it in, congrats, however, you might want to change you study habbits, trust me this program is not like your pre-req's, It's microbiology X 10. Believe me. READ AHEAD OF TIME! and understand critical thinking, THAT NCLEX book techniques of a beginning nursing student, that should be your forth class, read it and understand it, it has helped me a great deal. GOOD LUCK, I'll will see you in class. post me.
