    Jen, I forgot when you said you where going to start at the UMET, but be forwarned that the "convalidacion" of your transcripts will take a while. Mine got there in May and did not get finalized until the last week and you cannot move forward in chosing your classes until this is done. And they won't accept you giving them by hand even if they are sealed you must have them sent from your school here in FL. Also, I had to do the grunt work to get it moving faster by getting the class descriptions from my school here in Florida and breaking it down for them. While they gave me all of my sciences they did not accept my math classes or my spanish class (so I am just going to CLEP out of them) because I did them online and since theirs has "Laboratorio" (which I did have lab in those course here in FL). There is a holiday on Monday, I forgot which one of the 100's they have a year so I am going to have to pray that I get out of the airport on time Friday to get my car out the port or I have to wait until Tuesday.

    i am sorry to say that if you havent registered yet you are probably not going to be able to be in a class. We were in a classroom registering alot of students by paper and pen alot of the classes were full like my fundamentals class was returned 3 times because it was full and they had to make room for me in a full class. I mean it was cray maybe because i went the orientation day but i am glad i did because if not i wouldnt of been able to pick the times and classes i did. At the end there were full classes and since there was nowhere else to place the student they just crossed the class of the students schedule. My friend who came with me got accepted that same day. The admissions lady ******* something said that unless you had a degree the regular nursing was full.!!!

    Ok this I don't quite understand. I need to get into those classes. Are u in the accelerated track or regular track? Are the nursing classes for the accelerated track still open?

    But what this lady in admissions does not know is the nursing dept will just keep adding classes. NO ONE will be turned away. And the classes you were referring to that were full were probably the clinicals. Since each clinical has only 10 people they fill up fast. And if there was an orientation and a ton of people registering at one time then different advisors may assign the same 10 class clinical and by the time you wait in line for a couple hours at registration that clinical is now full.

    There will be classes for everyone and there will be people getting admitted after classes have started.

    And don't stress if you have no teacher for some classes the first week. It happens pretty often, especially the first trimester of the year. In fact after the first trimester only about half the class shows up the first week of school. Since we don't get breaks between trimesters, some students make their own.

    But don't worry everyone will get into their classes.
