    Hi Shelbel -

    I was in the 18-month accelerated program. graduated in Dec 2006. I got engaged in Feb 2005, and had planned to get married in August 2005. When I was accepted to school, I learned that we had competency assessments the Monday after my planned wedding date - not the best scenario. So we delayed the wedding for the following August. Because we had a few weeks off from classes, it worked. However, I had already done a lot of planning prior to my getting accepted to school, my mom was able to help out a lot. We also decided to really tone the wedding down, just to keep it simple. Actually, the planning that I did do during school was a nice distraction for me. So, this really worked for me.

    If you are aiming for a large elaborate wedding, I wouldn't advise trying to do it during the program. But, don't underestimate the need for distraction from school - so maybe planning a wedding would be a fun, non-school-related activity. (You will need these, I promise!)

    Good luck!

    Hi khazel - thanks so much for your reply re: your experience w/ planning a wedding in the middle of the program. I'm impressed you were able to work it out the way you did. I haven't done any planning yet ... and have three more pre-reqs and a part time job this summer to keep me busy before the program starts this fall! I appreciate your feedback, it will help me in the discerning process. Congrats btw on your job and success after school! Take care.
