    From what I hear, classes at Mount Olive college run from June-November and last from 6:00-10:00 two nights a week. If you have any of the prereqs, you are able to take different classes, and possibly online classes, but you are required to take at least 18 hours through Mount Olive college. I also think the instructors come from Mount Olive to teach the classes at the Watts campus. This is all hearsay though, so hopefully I'm not misleading you! See you in June! Congratulations

    I think you have one class at a time, but each class lasts about 3 weeks or so. It does seem like a lot though in a relatively short amount of time. I have had all of the prerequisites, but I think I want to take them again to refresh my memory!

    yup that is a good thought. the a&p is really the only class I have not had although i went to school along time ago for the most part.

    Hey! Could I ask what your stats were to get accepted? I mean GPA wise? Im from MI and was told by a friend to try this school out but I dont know too much about it even though I went to their website. How competitive is it exactly?
  12. by   mcmoore
    Hey starmickey03! I already had a bachelors degree when I applied to Watts and my overall GPA was about a 3.5, but I don't think GPA matters too much. I think the school is somewhat competitive, but it seems to me that the two most important parts of their application are the preadmissions testing and the essay. It's a great school! Good luck!

    I was just wondering, have they sent you a list of things you're required to have for classes? Do they require certain shoes/stethoscope, do they encourage or discourage the use of a PDA?

    I haven't heard anything about shoes/stethoscopes/use of a PDA. The only thing I know that they require are watches with a sweeping second hand! I'm guessing we will have an orientation closer to our start date and hopefully they will give us more information then!
