    I'm in clinical group A! I'm just happy to have all Thursday's off...lol. I am VERY excited for school to start. I feel like our class will thin out after this first semester. I'm anxious to see how they're going to break up clinical groups a&b on clinical days because that is alot of people on the unit.

    I think the warm-up jackets are horrible looking...lol.

    I just kinda was taking everything in on Monday. I think we all should get together on transition day before classes start.

    Orientation was fun, Except waiting in the lines to get through Financial Aid and the Uniforms part...

    I am also in Clinical Group A, and Lab 4..

    I am starting to get nervous about all of this! I was happy to see that I wasn't the oldest student (I'm 27)....

    Are you guys doing the tuition forgiveness? I most likely am, but I am worried about if something happens or I fail out. Then your stuck with a big loan at 15% interest! I am really excited about august but the expences are really adding up! 200 nursing app, 100 for uniforms, 100 for supplies, 100 physical and 150 for books! Ouch! I think I am going to have to take out a loan.

    I second meeting up at transitions day.

    I was in disbelief on how long the lines were for everything! Did you guys get the email that we weren't suppose to buy a lab coat and they're giving us refunds?

    I just turned 27 so no worries!

    I have an iPhone already but I can't believe that we need to have an iPod touch for clinical. I though some people were going to have heart attacks. Lol. It's getting really expensive fast. But it'll all be worth it.

    I'm going to be doing tuition forgiveness.

    What's awesome is if people need to buy a new phone for school, it is a tax write off...

    holy crap you have to have an ipod touch ????? Sounds stupid, I hope we don't need one for Shadyside. I'd go scour "The Exchange" My boyfriend just got one there for like 70 bucks.

    **edit** also I didn't forget about the CPR thing, the guy just came back from vacation. I was thinking of scheduling it for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon don't know where though. If anyone has any ideas or dates they want lemme know.

    Ok, What was the reason we couldn't buy our Pharmacology book used? I bought one from a website and it said that it was brand new. I figured there would be a CD or something with it... When I got it in the mail, it was wrapped in cellophane, so its new, but there were no cds or anything with it! HELP!

    Is there like a code inside, I think they said it gives you access to the online course.
