    You guys have given me a good idea. I'm going to approach this semester (2nd) with the serenity prayer that they say in AA. "Give me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference"!

    In other words, I'm not surprised at all that we haven't gotten our schedules. The only thing I've heard is that there is another orientation. I'm going to go meditate now.:zzzzz

    I went to it last night (orientation) Promising but not promising. Looks like they are relying heavily on the GPA and to make sure our pre req. are really defined by OU standards versus CA and they told us that the tuition will go up after this summer!! They said that most likely we will move to Memorial or in that area be all on one floor and that they'll contact us if we pass the unofficial transcript phase enough to apply for the next application deadline. If not it seems they would like for us to repeat classes if that is what it takes to raise GPA. They only touched heavily on pre reqs and no I did not hear anything about any of you already in the program who will be affected by all the changes they are to make in the next few months. I was hoping their would be a student available to ask questions but none in site last nite. But I'm excited now I just have to wait till monday at the lasted for them to let us know where we stand. I wish I could remember her name that gave the presentation.

    I believe they are changing things because of the large amount of applicants. Good luck!

    Thanks. Word is getting around but because of the need for nurses, I'm hoping that other schools will follow and start these types of programs. This is the right time to go back and get into this type of career because it is a promising career and one with a lot of reward and gratitude compared to other jobs. I hope I can get accepted into any cohort at this moment I don't care when...I just don't want to go through the waiting like I had at SDSU before you realize you had to leave and find another avenue to be a nurse in SD since most of the schools for nursing in San Diego are impacted and have long waitlist!!

    Anyone else here in group 3?? I kind of like the thought of an evening shift. It will probably be quiet for the last few hours.
