    hey does anyone know what type of drug test is given is it urine or hair sample

    VEEB must really be digging through the pile of candidates this time around. I received my acceptance not even a week after handing in my references, but those were different times, the economy was just starting to slip back in Spring 08'.

    VEEB is extremely antiquated, so just stay patient. I can't agree with them for taking this long, people need to figure out their lives. On the other hand though, they want to ensure students who seem to have longevity, since it costs them money if you drop out.

    And the drug screening is urine. Don't worry, you get to keep your hair...lol

    ok since im not the only one asking about the drug screening now that i see its a urine is it on site or sent out to a lab?? And a friend of mine is also waiting to hear from Veeb but she just found out she is pregnat so will she still be able to attend this year or will it be a problem??

    You guys are awfully concerned about the drug test LOL. Everything is sent out to a lab. My suggestion if you are doing anything, to stop. You wouldn't want the reason you don't get into school to be a failed drug test. There are 2 pregnant girls in the program now and 2 that gave birth since the program started. Being pregnant is not an issue.

    Right smoking is not such a bad idea at all. Got to calm my nerves waiting for the mysterious acceptance letter. Think I'll mix a glass of cranberry and vodka. Uh-oh VEEB just might be driving me to drink.....So tell me what are you doing to get through this long wait?

    Hi everyone I've been watching this message board for a while now and I've posted just once before I took the pre-entrance exam. I'm not one for message boards but I've got to say at this point I feel like I've been waiting so long for this acceptance letter that I've got to let out the frustration somewhere. Misery loves company huh? I did well on the exam and have already submitted my reference letters and so maybe I shouldn't feel so worried but this wait is making me so nervous. I've been constantly checking this board to see if everyone else has heard back besides me. I called this morning to see if there was anything missing from my application file or if any sort of notice has been sent out besides the exam results and reference requests and they just say "you'll recieve a letter in the mail" and that they cannot answer when. I know some of you out there are in the same position and for some of us it seems like our lives are somewhat on hold pending these letters. I mean, even if I was not accepted at this point any notice would be a relief, however of course I'm really hoping for good news. Good luck to everyone else as well.

    I totally agree with you changemyworld. Since we are all going crazy waiting for our acceptance letters, wouldn't it be crazy if all 200 people that are suppose to be accepted into the program decided to go with their plab B, and decided NOT to attend VEEB because it took too long......LOL....wow Karma would be a real B$%^H. Then poor little VEEB wouldn't have a class.....LOL.......it's just a thought. Humor makes things a little easier not to think of reality....oh well.....guess we will see how long it will take for everyone to go with their plan B's or C's.

    Honestly it's crazy bc pol have to get everything together with work and if they have kids that's another added issue to the list. Holding on to this $2000 is really burning a hole in my pocket lol bc there's so many other things needed in my life right now and waiting around for a letter is ridiculous like I could buy the car that is greatly needed right now so I can take up extra hours at work. But I just keep telling myself it will get greater later so I see patience is the key for all of us right now. I hate my job and don't want to b there forever and I'm sure someone else feels the same way it's our education so we gotta do what we gotta do. But by the end of this week if I don't get anything Monday morning I will b calling the school bc I tested in the begining of feb and had my ref letters in the day after I got the letter requesting them. But I honestly think that they will send it around the time the bridge program starts bc they only hold a few seats for them. Let's all just keep our fingers crossed hopefully a majority of us got in they have to let us know pretty soon since school would b starting in about 3 months

    speaking of the $2000 deposit, and maybe this is a dumb question, but the deposit must be a money order or certified check? will cash be okay? even better CREDIT? does anyone know a little more about this? Thanks.

    They don't take credit cards. Cash, money order or certified check.
