    When I was speaking with someone at LaInter through email he told me that you can just copy and paste into a word document the course descriptions along with the amount of credits each class is from your school's website.

    Also I'm going to Puerto Rico this Sunday so I will be visiting the school. If anyone has questions about anything that hasn't been answered feel free to post them on here and I will make sure to find out while I'm there

    Thanks edibie.
    I am bringing transcript, ID, birth cert, and SS Card, plus course descriptions when I go. Are you bringing more with you when you go on Sunday?
    Enjoy your visit..

    I'm also bringing a copy of my health records to show proof of my Hep B series in case they tell me that I need to get a health certificate from the doctors while I'm there. If that is the case while I'm there I will have to test for TB and get a VDRL blood test to get the certificate. (Atleast that's what previous students have said) I know that the health certificate that is needed is only accepted from a doctor in PR.

    I applied last month for the August semester but I haven't heard back from them yet
    Hello, I also applied and I am still waiting to get a response. I called today and finally after several weeks of trying to get hold of admission office someone answered. However,they told me that my transcripts were received on 2/18/13.. I can't still believe it, because I mailed them on 01/18/13 from California.. Gee that took a while. Also, they provided me with my student ID and said that all my papers are under review by the nursing office and is just matter or waiting.

    Now, is anyone planning in working while in Puerto Rico.?

    wow I can't believe you actually got through to admissions on the phone. I've been calling this past week and noone ever answers. Finally today a lady answered when I was transferred to the nursing department but she couldn't tell me anything. I just wanted to know if they ever received the transcript that my university sent them. It was sent on 2/18/13 also and I'm in Fl so they should've gotten it by now.

    Anyways, to answer your question, yes, I plan to look for a job while I'm there but I doubt I will find one because I don't speak spanish.

    Yes, it's crazy getting to speak with someone. It kind of made me think twice if Inter will be the best option. I was looking into UMET and they answer the phone right away and they also start classes in August. I am considering in applying in both schools and whichever school approves me first than will be the one I will be attending.
    Good luck to us and perhaps, we might see each other at nursing school!!

    No I'm not in Puerto Rico yet. I'm going on Sunday so I will be at the school first thing Monday morning. Do you speak spanish? I heard that the nursing program at UMET isn't completely in english (but I'm not 100% sure) or else I would've applied there too. But I'll let you know if they're better with assisting in person than over the phone when I get there.

    Have a safe trip and let me know how did it go in the school and the pro and cons you might see!
