    mzchas,

    I can't respond to your PM, not enough posts by me yet

    But, I think you might have mistaken me for someone else. I don't know anything about the NACL program.

    Hey, people! I got into the Spring 2011 program in Newark. My question is, are any of you planning on getting housing over there, or are you commuting? I'm planning to stay in UMDNJ housing at 180 West Market Street. Just trying to get an idea of what ppl are doing. See you guys at orientation!

    I live in my own, so I'm taking the 20 minutes commute. See you on the 2nd.

    hi mzchas,

    I am back after few days. How is it going on with you? I have decided to go for nursing instead of O.T.

    How are you finding TEAS review so far? I am lil nervous about it since some of the question and topic in that book requires detail reading and studying, which is not possible now. How are you studying for it?

    Thanks.

    Hi there. Glad you are doing nursing. I will see you then at UMDNJ in Dec? 60 students were accepted this semester.

    I barely studied for the TEAS, since I learned that your stay in the program isn't contingent on if you did well or not on the TEAS. I just brushed up on the Math section.

    I have already taken it and didn't do too bad. Especially since I had version 5 review book and UMDNJ uses TEAS 4. However I don't know what is considered "good" or "bad."

    Reading and English was the easiest of the 4 sections. Brush up on your basic math and science.

    ya, will see u in the orientation...When did you take Teas last time?

    ya, the fact that the score will not be counted against us as for being in the program makes me feel better too.

    Thanks.

    I took it this Tuesday because I'm participating in UMDNJ's NALC Program. NALC (Nursing as an Additional Language & Cultural Program) runs until Dec. 21st. So we don't need to be there on the 1st.

    Great that you are done with it.

    See you on the 2nd Dec.

    Thanks.

    Does that mean that aren't accepting anymore students?

    You haven't heard anything? If you haven't gotten a rejection letter that is usually a good thing. But this happened to me for last semester when I applied for the Fall. Call them like crazy (if you have to) about your status. If the class is in fact full, they'll most likely defer you to the Summer semester, but find out. Don't send an email, call.

    To those attending UMDNJ in the spring: enjoy your last month of freedom, the program is hell. Our motto here as students to future students, "you must hate yourself"
