    Yuck! So you have to do the Freshman English and the Junior English??? I had an English comp course from 20 years ago that satisfied the Freshman Comp. I also had 3 other junior English classes that did NOT satisfy the Junior Comp...so I am stuck taking that in session 3 this fall.

    I don't have my DARS yet, but my "what if" DARS says that I also need a Junior Comp course. I have a BA already, so I need to find out what I have already taken that might meet the requirement. I can't honestly believe that I don't have something that fits.

    I just got my DARS and I found a mistake so I would go over it with a fine tooth comb! I had two biochems and they were telling ,e I needed chemistry...uh I don't think so

    I had a similar issue. They are trying to tell me I need a humanities and I said hello I have a Bachelors in Biology...do you really think I didn't take a humanities class?!!!

    I have two college chemistries as well and they are saying I need to retake it! They said the chemistry I took (in college) was good enough for my ADN but not for BSN. I tried to argue....have to take it :-(

    She accepted my biochem classes. I was very annoyed, but she worked quickly and fixed it. Thank goodness

    This may be d/t them knowing that some nursing programs have "dumbed down" chemistry classes.

    I saw that my DARS has been updated to semesters and now they are taking back some of the courses that they had waived before. I'm steaming mad. Adding about 4 classes to what they said I had to take before.
    I emailed my advisor today. I am going to fight this one.

    Hold on Mary and don't blow your stack! ;-) I also had classes added that had been waived when we did the quarter to semester switch. I spoke with my advisor who stated some classes waived did not transfer through automatically so they had to enter them by hand. I guess I was the first person under my advisor to catch this and it took them some time to figure out what happened. In the meantime, I was pretty steamed.

    Thanks for the voice of reason. I'm only 6 months into this and already have had my fill. Tired for sure,but more than that. I am really disappointed in how the nursing program is being handled. Compared to the stats course, I think the nursing courses stink. poorly organized and meaningless videos. Why don't they post lectures actually given by the instructors? I'm tired of teaching my self. It feels like we are being manipulated into just pouring out money for a degree with no instruction other than what we can figure out ourselves.
