    I believe it is the clinigalbgscreening one. I started to fill it out but got confused when it was asking about my previous addresses but wouldn't give me a place to put the street address, so I put it off. What were the options for the tests? Our form doesn't specify anything other than it is a urine analysis.... is that an option?
    When I go to questdiagnostics.com they have different options for the tests whether its regulatory or not and paper or not.

    Have everyones checks that were written from the open house gone through yet? My check to ACE was cashed immediately, but the one that I wrote to OU for my lab kit is still not showing up... Just want to make sure it isn't just me and they lost it or something!

    Both the checks that I wrote haven't been cashed yet!

    I also just finished my first semester! It was do-able; and I kind of slacked off in one class for the final and didn't do as well as I thought I would ......and it lowered my grade a whole letter grade - so STAY STRONG through the end! I learned that lesson, and I will not slack off towards the end EVER again!

    AS for the new grads, they just graduated and they cannot sit for the NCLEX for 45 days after graduation so most of them probably won't take it until late Jan/Feb of 2009.

    Good luck to all of you starting in January!

    I have a couple of questions about the background and drug testing. 1 page tells you to go to quest diagnostics and then another page tells you to go to clinicalbgscreening. Which one do we suppose to register at? Also, when I was trying to make an appt on-line through quest diagnostics. The website ask you to check the test that you need. Which one are we suppose to check. I just want to make sure I do this right. Thanks.
    You do the clinicalbgscreening first and then take the form to one of the quest diagnostic place for urine test.

    I remember just putting in the street name for the previous addresses. For the tests, you go to one of the listed quest diagnostic place for urine test. No appointment needed, and just present the form (included from the open house folder) to the front desk and they will know that you need a urine test. I just got it done Friday 12/19.

    I just called the financial aid office and they said the award packages went out the 8th, but I still haven't received mine so they were going to check on that. They said they've been getting them back so at least some people have received them. They offered to fax it to me, and I don't have a fax but if anyone else who is still waiting does, you might want to call and see if they'll fax it to you.

    I know that after tomorrow the financial aid office will be closed until the 5th of January. For any of you that are still waiting, you can have something faxed to Kinkos and they will hold it there for you to pick up so that might be an option if you are getting anxious. I do it all the time, they just charge you a very small fee.

    I called FA office yesterday and they said they have mailed you a whole bunch of award letter on Tuesday 12/16, it should arrived in your mail box already. I got mine on Saturday 12/20.

    Make sure you dont wait til the last minute to find out about FA status. It usually takes very long to get the loan, especially the Alternative Loan offers by other banks such as Wells Fargo, B of A, etc. It takes these banks weeks from the initiation of the loan application to verifying your info with OU FA office.

    Does anyone know what will we be doing at the Orientation on the 7th and 8th besides receiving our books and the things we ordered from the Open House? Thanks!

    I know they want to spend some time talking about scheduling and time management and we are supposed to get our clinical assignments , but I don't know what else.

    Thanks everyone for the info. I talked to Financial Aid yesterday and they faxed me my award letter. What a relief! Does anyone know what steps to take next for our Federal loan and our alternate loan? Do we just go to a bank? I'm clueless! I wish there was more directions!

    I applied for the wells fargo medcap loan about a month before the acceptance letters went out. The whole process was VERY easy and quick. They sent me a promissary note within a couple days of application, and the only paperwork they needed from me was a copy of my drivers license. highly, highly, highly recommended. after you get the promissary note, you sign it and fax it back to both them and then to the FA office so they can do stuff on their end. the whole thing took less then a week from start to finish..... good luck everyone!! see you at orientation. Hey - did anyone else get that letter in the mail today asking for an enrollment deposit?
