    Yes I am taking them together. I am just going to pray that I can get through it. I feel like it is definitely do-able since I am a stay at home mom with only one child. I have seen that other people have taken it along with 2 to 3 other courses, on top of being a mom of 1+ children and sometimes also having a job. Knowing that people can handle all of that and still pass with A's kind of made me feel a little more confident in my decision to take them together. I'm actually in Chesapeake so VB is a little too far for me to travel especially having to pay for a babysitter. I'm taking Micro at Norfolk with MT and AP2 with MM at Chesapeake. I tried taking AP2 this summer along with 3 other courses at Norfolk with CC but I didn't take into consideration the shorter semester, so that along with the teaching style she had that I didn't really care for was making it really hard for me to keep up and do well so I dropped it. Hoping for a better time this fall.

    Krystal, I think that is a great idea. Let me know when you sent up the facebook page and I will definitely be joining. I am feeling a little stressed just thinking about the grading policy and how anything under an 80 is considered failing. Congratulations! I am in Cohort 1 also, we will be working together starting in August!

    I have a question if y'all don't mind. I am just getting back into school and have to take the NAS2 as a prereq for A&P. (it's a new requirement starting this fall) so that is hanging me up for applying when I wanted to. This fall I'm taking eng comp2, svd, nas2, psy201, and microbio. I plan to take A&P1, a Psy, a phi, and chem 1 in Spring2014. And finally I plan to take A&p2 in summer of 2014. My question is do you think I can apply during my Spring semester? I'll still be in A&P1 and a few other prereqs so I'm thinking that'll be an issue. Should I just wait to apply during the summer of '14 or can I apply for both and hope for the best?

    What would you do?

    bananaphone,

    I applied while I was in the Spring'13 microbiology class. They do not make decisions as to who will get into the program until after the grades are posted for the Spring semester. So, if you are taking those classes when you apply, just make sure that you make them as currently enrolled in them. This way, they will be able to flag your application for review of those grades when they are made available. I got into the 1st cohort starting in August, so you can still get accepted even if you are finishing up your last prerequisites at the time the applications are due. Good luck to you, it seems like you are going to be taking a lot of heavy courses all at the same time! A&P 2 in the summer is a great idea, just remember that they are cramming 16 weeks of course work into 10 weeks over the summer. It means two lab days a week and quiz/ tests just about every time you go to class. (It is doable though.)

    Oh thank you! Yea, I do realize I'm doing a lot so I'll have to be studious and smart with my time. Good Luck to you as well!

    I hope y'all don't mind these questions but during the Info session today the advisor stated that if we've already taken SVD100 that we could "opt" out of SDV101 but my counselor stated otherwise. Have any of you been able to opt out?
