I, too, am starting Simmons this fall, and I, too, am taking the bridge course in May. I had originally selected to start the program in May and my admissions counselor was trying to get me to enroll in the bridge for March, but I'm not ready. Yikes! I have all of my sciences finished and I still have to take the bridge. I asked my admissions counselor why I was taking it and he told me it was because I got a C in physiology. Oh well, I guess I could use the refresher since I was pregnant at the time and missed my final, yada, yada, yada. Still its an expensive refresher.
Anyhoo, I'm excited, yet nervous, yet concerned for the financial aspects as well.
I also applied to UTMB and found out after waiting for 3 months that my application was basically just sitting in the atmosphere. Had I not called, it would still be there. So I have to wait another couple of weeks for a decision on them. It's significantly cheaper than Simmons, so I was hoping to get a decision before the deposit deadline came.
I'm part time as well....gotta keep money coming in.
