    Did anyone who took the test study from the Barron book or mometrix? If so which one did you find more helpful with the test? I bought them both but the mometrix is way easier than the Barron IMO

    Peden...I studied from both. The mometrix book was WAY more helpful for the science portion tho.

    I got the letter in the mail today for the physical And drug test, etc. We have to mail them a check then I guess we get more info on where to complete it. We can't do it until after June 15th, if I read correctly.

It was a wonderful surprise because I just finished my finals up at Penn State main today, moved out of my dorm, left PSU for good, got home and checked the mail.. and there it was! I am so excited to meet all of you and start this journey

    Natural girl - I know it's ridiculous.

    Also, they will mail a packet that includes all the information you need about what credits will be accepted and if you need to CLEP. They will also send a packet about background checks and your physical

    Does anyone know what's required in the physical. Last time I took for for a hospital I had to lift 75 pounds. I'm pregnant right now and obviously cannot lift 75 pounds. I'm wondering if I need to contact someone to let them know and/or if I can be held back to start next year because I am pregnant? If anyone has any info please let me know. Thanks. Can't wait to meet you all at orientation. We need to set a time or place to meet before hand and grab lunch or something.
