    I received a letter on Friday with this wonderful news, I took my exam March 19th, I had my interview April 10th and I was told to have my down payment ready and be in there like yesterday when I receive my letter. This is not the letter I was anxiously awaiting.
    Wow.. I thought registration was closed. I interviewed on April 3rd and registered on the 20th. Are you on some kind of waiting list????

    That is a nice way of putting it... they didnt actually come out and say that but that is exactly what I see it as... did they tell you registration is closed because when I call the school I can never get a straight ans from whoever answers ... patience is all I ever hear...

    No one told me that. They just made it seem like classes fill up really fast so when i got the letter regarding oreintation i just assumed it was closed.

    They must just have you on a waiting list. If you had no chance of getting for Sept'07 i'm sure they would have just said so. Also they may be holding a seat for someone who tested before you...that may not accept. My accepteance letter gave me a date i had to have my deposit in by or my seat would have been given to the next person on the list.

    Also, I know they do hold seats for people that didn't do so great on the entrance exam and have to take the remedial classes over the summer. So you may have a chance there as well. Or maybe it could be as simple as someone not passing the drug test... You never know!

    Just think positive and call every now and than and see what's going on!


    GOOD LUCK!

    I am currently attending VEEB and all I can say is its a good school. I live in Brooklyn and I have a one year old, its going to be hard at first but if your studying you have no problem passing. The teachers are there to help you out and to be honest they can be tough but they want to see you pass. I have never had a problem with the exams because when you attend tutoring it helps a whole lot. I have a 92 average in almost every class and the only way that happened is because alot of the students formed study group and we helped each other. If you have strong will and power all of you will pass. If you need anymore help or info just drop me a message.

    Thanks for the Info... TriniAngel!

    Wow... A 92 average is excellent! What are your plans after graduation?? Are you going to continue to RN or Work??

    Also, could you provide us with a list of the required & recommended books.. if you can???

    Thanks again!

    The key to passing VEEB is simply studying in groups and keep studying.
    I plan on attending Helen Fuld after VEEB simply because everyone that graduated from VEEB and transitioned off to the RN program there said it was easy.
    VEEB is very intense and their test prepares you for the NCLEX. By the time your finish you can take on any RN program.

    GOOD LUCK

    Hey Ladies, Dime here!

    Go Trini, Go Trini, Go! You go girl.. 92% wow!!!

    I do agree the study group is what i'm planning; it was suggested by one of the lab instructors at VEEB. I am really happy for you and wish you all the best w/ veeb and helen fuld.

    I was told a good careplan is required?? Do we need to get this?? What should we prepare for??

    Will we have clinicals immediately within the program or do you have lectures the first week? So much questions Trini....

    I'm not going to ask you for the books recommend, because i'm pretty sure they'll update the inventory yearly. However, what are the subjects does one at veeb takes?? Are you working while attending school??

    Ok I guess i'm asking too much questions:trout: .

    I guess i'm eager for all of us....I wish you all best of luck.
