    Lex,

    Who do you have for Pharm? I am probably going to take that class and would like to know a good teacher in case I do. I have a friend who is taking Patho at Brookhaven and she is struggling with the info. as well.

    I'm taking both Patho and Pharm right now and they require alot of work. I really like Pharm but I think that's because I have a really good teacher. She gives you homework questions that really helps you understand everything.

    I'm struggling through Patho because there is so much info and I'm having a hard time narrowing it down. The class avg. is 76. I would recommend that you avoid the online option and take the actual class. That's just my humble opinion though.

    I love San Antonio. It's such a fun city and there is so much to see from Sea World to the Missions. There's so much culture there...it's where my husband and I got married so maybe I'm a little partial to it

    Amy

    The lowest GPA was 3.77 for both NLC and ECC with 13 credits completed at both campuses. ECC had a support course GPA of 4.0 and NLC's support course GPA was 3.77.

    217 people applied, but I'm not sure how many were accepted. I'm sure around 100 again.

    Hope this helps, if not, here's part of the actual letter:

    HI Amy,
    i just got accepted and this is what they told us:
    ELC: prereq 3.77 GPA, with 13 hours of supportc. at 4.OO GPA
    NLC: prereq 3.77 GPA, with 13 hours of supportc. at 3.77 GPA

    I got in with prereq 4.0 and 3 hours of supportc at 4.0

    I heard it varies all the time, so don't give up.

    I have another question for you guys, i have signed up for the pilot programm in the summer which supposed to let me do clinicals earlier, and i was told :

    Students will be required to purchase an HPRS 1204 packet of supplies from
    the El Centro bookstore and provide other basic supplies (including but not
    limited to stethoscope, digital thermometer/covers, and wristwatch with a second
    hand).

    This course supposed to be in place of RNSG 1119 - Nursingskills. So my question is: did you all purchase all these supplies in the bookstore and what exactly are these? Is there maybe some place elsewhere, where you could buy these things for maybe a better price? Do you all have any suggestions?
