    Thanks and congrats on your acceptance!!!
    wooow...Your qualifications are absolutely AWESOME!!!
    So, have you ever repaeted any course?
    How did you calculated your Cumulative GPA?
    I did not know MUCS accepts AS degrees for their Accelerated BSN program.
    Also, you got awesome Back ground as an EMT.

    I have never repeated any courses, I actually never intended to go into nursing until after I completed my EMT certification. I went to community college for biology and ended up having all the prereqs completed, found MUSC and it was the perfect school for me. I calculated my cumulative GPA from my college transcripts. Also there are GPA calculators which you can google.
    I am super excited, the only thing holding me back is taking out enough loans to pay! Good luck to you and if you have anymore questions or need advice feel free to contact me!

    Thanks, EmtDD,
    I agree with you it's very big money for out of state applicants $48.000+books+living expenses...etc=least $70.000. But, do not worry about the cost, because MUSC is great program and worth it !!!!

    I just found out today I was accepted! I live in Summerville....can anyone tell me what the schedule may be like? I have a 18 month old and my husband is a pilot in the air force, so I need to plan child care now....I am very excited to meet everyone! Will you all be there for the mini orientation on the 4th?

    Did anyone get turned down? Seems like everyone either got in or is on the alternate list.

    NICANT,

    I heard that we have class 4 days a week. What "group" you are in depends on which day of the week you have off. I think we have class from about 7/9am to about 3/4pm. I'm not completely sure, but I remember reading this somewhere. Clinicals I think could start as early as 6:15ish from what I've heard. But...I am all new to this and am just as curious as you are!

    And to anyone that doesn't have alot of volunteer/medical experience...don't lose hope! I have a lot of volunteer and community service, but none of it was medicine related and I still got in!

    Hi everyone, wanting to know if anyone is familiar with the Charleston area. I will be looking for a roomie while in the Program. My commute to Georgia will be a little too much during the week. I hope to see everyone at the orientation on the 4th Nov. Looking forward to this next chapter!!

    Anyone else coming from the Summerville area? Maybe I can find a carpool buddy! Amil011- I am just a transplant....my husband is Air Force, so I am from Texas...I have only lived in SC for a short amount of time.
