    Thanks! It sure was. Of course, now I'm obsessing and thinking of things I could have put in my personal statement instead, but what's done is done, I suppose. I'm exploring other options, just in case I don't get in, but other schools are so much more expensive and require even more prerequisites! I feel like I'll be in school forever.

    I am also applying to Adelphi's accelerated- PATH program as a back up, but SBU is by far my first choice...
    Good luck!
    Annie,
    I was looking at Adelphi the other day and considering applying, but it's so expensive (I think I figured $56,000). Have your heard anything about scholarships?

    Good luck to you too! Hopefully we'll both get in!

    I think I will be considering Adelphi for next year if I don't get into SBU. It's a lot of $$$... and more prereqs

    I applied also to Columbia's ETP program as part of the their early decision process--it is horribly expense and although I have 6 months left on my GI Bill--it just is not enough to pay for it with Columbia's one scholarship (as you can imagine)...But I really hope for SB to come thru....Logistically it is the better option for me (etc. closer to house, can drive there, cost, in case son is sick etc.)

    I checked my application and next to one of my transcripts it had an asterisks?? It was a school (U of M) that when I opened one transcript to have an original on file--it was a transcript for another person! So I had to call and leave a message asking about the "Asterisks" and to ensure they did not get a transcript of another person for me...unreal sometimes-oh well.

    PACO 69--I had a question for you--I was interested in getting the books for the Pathology, Math, and Pharmacology so I can read up--I am old SO I have to give it time to sink into this old brain and repeat repeat repeat Can you tell us the books used? Thanks a mill

    I need a little insight!!!

    My entire application was listed as recieved the beginning of this month. My undergraduate trasncripts from BOTH schools I attended were recieved as well as all three letters of rec and my application fee. I logged onto Solar on Friday to see the status of one of my trasncripts has been changed to NOT RECIEVED. As you can imagine I am 100% freaking out. I called them on Friday to see what the deal was and was told someone was going to call me back and never did. I can't possibly imagine how they could have my transcript for a month and suddenly not have it! And I mean, I had my trasncripts listed as recieved from the end of september until the middle of this month and all of a sudden BAM! The deadline is passed as well so I'm screwed if they don't have it. Any clue what's going on!?

    Kimmie, I'm hoping that they had a problem on Friday with the Solar, I submitted all my trasncripts and they had them on record as "RECIEVED" and all of a sudden it has changed to NOT RECIEVED. I've been upset all weekend, so as soon as you hear anything please post! I emailed them and called and have yet to hear back, I'm sure they're swamped at this point, but it does nothing for my anxious self!

    Yes, it is expensive. I did apply to SBU last year, didn't get in and didn't have any back up school, so I decided to prepare for Adelphi as my back up for this year. I am planning to do the 1 year PATH program there if necessary. They do offer transfer students academic scholarships, depending on your undergrad GPA. It helps a bit, but still much more expensive than any state program. I figure it is a better option than a 2 year program which would delay working another year, which would cost more ultimately. I had to have a second option this year, but I really, really, really NEED to get accepted to SBU!!!
