    are you starting from the beginning or doing the ladder track?? I am in the beginning track...

    I am most nervous going in to class on 8/20 or orientation 8/14 about to pop.... i will be 37 weeks then. I work in labor/delivery so i see my dr almost considering asking to induce me the sept 1 or 2 just so i can be good and healed before clinical orientation... I know i can go sit in a class... and I am really glad i did evenings "so i could work" which now i won't bc of him, but my husband gets off work at 3pm so i shouldn't need child care.

    I am doing career ladder, so excited to finally finish! I was induced 1 week early with my son, had him Sept. 16th, went right back to school 2 days later for half a day. I have a very supportive husband, which really helped. It is very difficult, and I do not recommend having a baby during school, but it can work, especially if you have a great support system Good luck!

    I wouldn't have chose to do it this way lol. He was a bit of a suprise... Well the timing anyway. But I guess best to do it first weeks of first semester then later... My sis just graduated in may and said its def the easier semester. My husband is wonderful. I just don't want the teachers or director frowning down on me...

    Don't give them a reason to. Show them how bad you want this and that nothing will stand in your way. Work hard, make note cards so you can study while you are up in the middle of the night with your little one. It's amazing how much study time you can get while rocking your baby. I was sure my baby's first words would be infectious diseases You can do this, just be confident!

    I got accepted into the traditional days career ladder track -- but the clinical schedule severely conflicts with my work so I accepted but asked to be switched into online or evenings if at ALL possible. I have to be honest and I'm not looking forward to it at all -- I'm only looking forward to it being OVER!

    If you don't mind answering, how many points did you have? I know the points and acceptance differentiates every admitting period. Im just curious...

    ^ I honestly can't remember exactly but the number was relatively high? I do know the point system is different for career ladder. If I remember how many I promise I'll come back to tell you.

    Sorry to Josh and Amber about barely missing the cutoff for points. But hang in there! Your turn will come. I was told that the cutoff keeps getting higher and higher, getting more and more competitive. And that cutoff this time last year was usually 129 or 130.

    To those that did get accepted - Congratulations!! I don't know how the career ladder track works. Whitney, looks like we'll be in class together! You're going to do fine with baby. You're right. At least it's at the beginning and not in the middle or end of the semester, right? You won't have to do clinicals carrying a baby.

    I'm excited for the semester to begin! I've turned in my titers, TB test results and CPR cert. Now just waiting for July for the background check and drug screening and I'll see you at orientation on the 9th of August!
