1. I just wanted to thank everyone who posted on this website from prior years! All of the advice really helped me prepare for my interview at VCU! I start August 2013. If anyone has questions about interviewing I'd love to help good luck to everyone still going through the grueling interview process!!

    I hope other VCU 2013 jump in here so we can hear about our new classmates. I have run into a few other on another site I frequent as well.

    I am mostly worried about money at this point. Worried I won't be able to borrow enough money to support my family of face while I am in school. Anyone else worried about this ? Anyone thinking about military hlsp?

    I'm very worried about $$! It is my main concern. I've worked since I was 16 years old! We've been on Dave Ramsey's plan and the thought of debt scares me but I know it is for the greater good. Part of me wants to start working tons of overtime to save up extra money but the other part of me wants to enjoy my family and friends while I still have free time.

    I have been working since I was that time I was paying for everything but food and rent. Then as a senior in high school I moved out on my own. The idea of not working is frightening....on the other hand I have never had the opportunity to only go to school and not have to work at the same time. I keep thinking in my head that surely working a few shirts a month will be easy...but I know that in reality it isn't probably gonna happen! I already work overtime and have kicked it up recently to have a decent bit in the bank before we start. Have also been looking at cashing out retirement.

I've been saving too and looking at loan options. I know how you feel though. school's going to take over our lives. i want to see my family and friends as much as possible before then. hard decisions!

    Just as cli632 said, thanks to everyone who posted from past interviews; it helped immensely during my interview process! I'm excited to say that I was accepted to VCU Richmond campus, and will begin their CRNA program in the fall of 2013. See you all there!!
