    mcf011, I park at garage 8 on the SW corner of Pressler & Holcombe. I walk to school from there which is about 1/2 mile and takes 10 min or so, but there's a TMC blue shuttle that you can take if you...

    Haha well health assessment doesn't have lecture, just lab time. Care you'll be in the skills lab until you start clinicals, and there's maybe 1 or 2 sim labs or something after that. They're...

    Yeah it's just people talking, some of it's worthwhile and other things aren't. Navy blue scrubs. You wear them for clinical and anytime you're in the skills lab, which will be every Monday for...

    I've heard of people not receiving acceptance letters until the week before classes actually started, so you want to make sure you're as ready to go as possible!

    UT Houston doesn't make you pay a deposit! For those that are still waiting, I recommend looking up what vaccines are required for the schools you applied to and get anything that you don't have...

    I wouldn't read ahead because you won't be responsible for all the info in the book (and you don't need the book for pharm, btw), the instructors will narrow it down for you so that you know what to...

    We'll see how it goes, I personally like the traditional program and find it disappointing they're not offering the choice anymore... Patho and pharm were challenging but I enjoyed both classes...

    The school was advertising a $89/month contract that's supposedly a "discount" price. If I remember correctly, it wasn't even that close to campus. There's others where you can pay for the whole...

    Yeah, it's horrible. I think the garages closer to campus are $12/day(!!!) and the one across the street on Holcombe (garage 2 if I remember correctly) is like 8 levels or something ridiculous. So I...

    If there's a convenient metro route near you, or a park and ride or something, you might want to consider that. Or take the shuttle if you can. I don't take the metro so I don't really have much info...

    You will all attend lecture together but will be divided up into groups of 10 for labs. It depends on the class. For care I and HA, there are multiple people who lecture, depending on the week....

    The dosage calculatons test is really easy. Seriously, don't stress out over it or bother studying for it now. It's just really basic conversions, like mL to ounces, oz to pints, or lbs to kg. Or if...

    They have to be navy blue. Some brands label the color as indigo (I know Grey's anatomy does at least). Shoes are white. They're not really strict about shoes, just as long as they're mostly white,...
