    Akbowen- Yes, I'm applying for the fall semester full time as well! I'm super nervous about this test. My biggest concern is the math..I'm absolutely horrible with math. I bought Barron's off of amazon and I'm trying to study a lil every night!

    It is so nerve racking!! No I don't mind at all, I live around State College, PA so I'm about 2 hrs out from PITT! I'm moving to PITT in April or May though and my friend works at Shadyside and told me about the Nursing program, I never even knew about it! That's awesome you live so close!! I honestly didn't even know there was an info session on March 2nd! Lol

    Oh you'll be fine! (: are you applying to all three or just to Shadyside? I saw some girls applied to all three and then choose which one to go too!
