Hi keizie. We actually do not start classes until August 13... so we have a couple of weeks left. We have orientation on Wednesday, so I'm excited to find out some more about the school and what to expect.
So far, the faculty seems very nice and willing to help, but there are a few things that seem very foreign to me. I finished my prereqs at JCCC in Overland Park, and it was a much larger campus with a much larger student body. I am STILL in the process of having my Financial aid processed for SLC which just makes me feel very behind. JCCC usually has it processed and you know what to expect by June. I guess it's because their are so many students. Also, at SLC you must buy your books through KUMED bookstore, which makes things a little complicated. I can let you know more after Wednesday.
When I applied, I had a 3.96 overall GPA (Dang you College Algebra
) and a 4.0 in Science prereqs. I also had my CNA, CPR and First Aid certifications. Although those are not requirements, I am sure they didn't hurt. I did not have to submit an entrance exam test score (TEAS, etc) for admissions but I believe starting in the Spring you will have to. I did take the TEAS V for another program I applied to and I believe my score was around a 78.
Good luck to you, and I will let you know more when I actually start the program in a couple of weeks.
