    Just to make sure I read that email correctly…the orientation on the 9th from 9-1 is for everyone who is fast track @ GCU. Then the AT Still group has their orientation right after, @ John C Lincoln from 1-4?? So we'll drive from GCU right to John C Lincoln? I was originally told AT Still would have theirs on the 16th. Hmm...

    I was told that too. Thats why I planed my trip so I would be back in time. Then I get the email where it is now on the 9th and now I'm having to e-mail everyone to make sure that I'm going to be prepared on the 29th.

    That's weird. I wonder why its all the same day!? Did you get the email about the schedule? It's not too bad.. It is going to be the longest drive in the mornings though that's for sure. I haven't ordered the books or scrubs yet because I heard to wait until orientation? Should I go ahead and get everything or just wait? Stresssful!

    I emailed the administrative assistant for the AT Stills site. She told me that I would have to order everything on my own, contact my instructors for codes, pick up my name badge, and make an appointment to make sure that I have all of the necessary information that they need. Since I won't be able to get the orientation information until after the 15th I ordered my scrubs already. Hopefully all is correct but the guy on the phone said that other students have ordered them as well.

    I'm waiting for the orientation to start everything. Ex: Books, scrubs. I already have my Littman's Stetho! Wahoo.
    Does anyone know if white shoes are a requirement? If so, might need to get me another pair =)

    Apparel pro has a dress code for GCU and other schools on their site. Don't forget to pick up a pair or two of white socks when you are out looking for a pair of all white shoes.

    Apparel Pro says the shoe should be predominately white.

    Nooo... I love black socks.

    Yes, Nick. You will have to live out the inner nerdiness and put on your white socks just like the rest of us! If any one is looking at Dansko clogs, they are awesome! I have two pairs I wear at work and they are both extremely comfortable. They are bit pricey but my back can go all day without any aches or pain with these shoes. They do come in all white. Just my .

    I looked at a pair of Dansko's. They were comfortable but I couldn't get past the fact that they had a hard sole. I have bad feet so usually that means a lot of pain later.
