    Switching is allowed: as long as you find someone to switch with. Our cohort did have a Sat/Sun clinical rotation for one class so far, so those weekend clinicals are not offered often. And I don't...

    As far as the laptops go, although they are helpful in class, many people do just fine without them. You will need one to take your exams on but you can always borrow it from the school for the...

    I got my ipod for like $320 or something but I think it was 18G, it was the "medium-priced" one, so I'd go for the $299 probably too. I don't know when exactly they apply the late fees but as soon...
