I'm going to start working on my application materials next weekI work full-time and take 6-9 hours per semester. When it comes time for clinicals I'm going to either cut down to part-time or PRN. You can do it! I am married and have children at home. Grown in college but at home none the less!

I have 3 years of not seeing friends and family to make up for, lol.
