    Just an update regarding my technology question. I called Frontier today and they had told me that they no longer require the iPad/iPod Touch/iPhone for their clinical portion. The Android OS would be compatible with their software and technology. Yippee! That's good news for those that are NOT apple people. LOL

    Who did you speak with at Frontier? After reading this thread, I emailed Sharon Feltner about the iPad/iPhone vs Android device and I received an email back from the IT guy there that said they still required an Apple device. I was kind of hoping they didn't! I have an iPhone, but I'm not sure if a tablet would be a better idea...

    Hi. Would you mind copying the email here from the IT guy? I spoke to a lady in IT. Can't remember her name and she said that it is outdated as they understand that not everyone can afford an iPad, etc. The unfortunate part is that if it truly is required, we must bring it to Frontier Bound.... Therefore, we have only a month or 2 to save and purchase one from when we get out acceptance letter. Oh well. The life of technology in a rather tough economy.

    I'd like to see exactly what he wrote though. Thanks.

    Email from Frontier IT:Hey,**** Yes all students are required to purchase an Apple mobile device and there is no recommendation as to which device to purchase as any of the devices you mentioned below (as stated in the catalog) will do everything needed at the University. The iPod and iPhones are the same except the iPod does not have a calling feature that connects to cell phone towers like the iPhone. Many students purchase the iPad because the bigger screen is easier for them to work on but it is really personal preference in how much you wish to spend, what your situation is as far as cell phone plans go and how big of a device you want. If you have anymore questions please let me know, thanks.*Joel PughInformation Technology

    Admissions had some ? about my application, which were addressed. So, on Oct 1, I received an email from admissions telling me my application was complete and was submitted. The rep also said that their goal was to notify applicants 6 to 8 weeks prior to the Bound date applied for. That's kind of short notice for making travel plans, and this info is different than what I was told by a different admissions rep, but it is what it is.

    That was the same email I received when my application was complete back in August. I agree, not much time for travel or even scheduling time off for work. But we do what we need to do for one of the best programs!
