  2. Trying to find a job while in school full time?

  3. I did it and its so clear now
    ITT Tech is a terrible, for-profit school. STAY AWAY! Many employers will laugh in your face if you bring them an ITT Tech 'degree.' Not to mention, $50k+ is WAY too expensive for a 2-year...

  6. Pt's/visitors reading Fifty Shades of Grey???
    This is totally one of the main reasons why I LOVE my Kindle! I have a system where I read a 'classic' book (or some other mentally stimulating book) then I'll read a trashy book. I don't want to be...

  7. Pt's/visitors reading Fifty Shades of Grey???
    As someone who has actually read the books, they're kinda lame and NOWHERE near as dirty and hot as people who haven't read them think. Over the course of the three novels, you get the same sex scene...

  10. I don't want to work in a nursing home...
    I'm with ya, OP. If given my pick of jobs, I wouldn't choose a nursing home. Frankly, I just don't relate well to elderly people. That being said, I wouldn't turn down an opportunity for...

  12. Retaking the Hesi A2 Entrance exam...
    As far as I know, most places take your most recent score, regardless of what your previous score was. If you made a 78 the first time, but somehow make a 70 the second time, I believe they count you...
