    I was wondering if there was a fb page for the nursing program at LA inter..... do you happen to know the page and could post the website on here?
    I can but it's a closed group, look for Asociacion de Enfunmeria so I don't know how useful that would be. I think you have to get added to the group by someone already in the group (I believe they did this for privacy/security reasons)

    I emailed you (saw your earlier email post).

    Hey all,
    Curious if there is any word on the new director starting at La Inter? I am still planning on coming down to start in November, if under somewhat tenuous circumstances.

    I have a quick question I notice that july is still available for summer courses. I have already registered for August but wanted to take some electives in July. However when I went on the blackboard I didn't see anything about registering online. Can someone tell me how its done cause I've been calling the school for the week now and have gotten no help

    I believe they hired someone but I think they start in August. DOn't quote me on this. The assistant director is around though.

    DO NOT count on starting in November unless it is for the non accelerated program to general only.

    There have been a lot of changes. They are getting way too many students and have to turn away people. When I started in 2010 we had a student (also on this board as JebinMinneapolis) that arrived a week before school started, applied, was accepted, and got is classes.

    He has posted in the past telling people what he did and not to worry, just show up. But several people I know where told they have to register in June as they are not allowing any July new registers.

    They really are making a lot of changes and that November start date was always an unofficial. SO don't be surprised if it does not happen.

    Blackboard is an online education portal. That is where professors post HW assinments or handouts to download or where you take online quizes and exams.

    You would register for classes on Inter Web BUT as I new student you canot register online.

    I have no idea what to tell you to do because I NEVER got through to anyone 2 years ago when I called. I really think the registration has to be done in person. But this is only for new students. Your second trimester you can register online.

    Good question, I had been wondering the same thing..but I'm ashamed to admit I'm not yet at the 10 mile marker but good on you.. I've seen people run in Old San Juan up and down the hills of El Morro. But beyond that I haven't seen much of it - Love to hear someone else's input too.

    Yes definitely the beach is your best bet. There are a ton of runners around here. A lot of people live at Las Cumbres the first year and then realize what on earth they are doing and move to the beach the second year. That's what I did. School is 7 miles and for the most part takes 15 to 20 minutes. I leave most days at about 3 PM and study at Starbucks because traffic starts getting bad after that. If it is raining it can take up to an hour to get to school so in rainy season for sure leave early. But living at the beach is soooo worth the few times I get stuck in traffic.

    I believe if you look to a column on the far right it says something when the classes are in English. I don't know where the column is exactly and from what I can remember if the classes are in Spanish it doesn't say anything but if they are in English it will sat that.
