    I was going to apply to Kingwood had I not gotten into Mont or Tomball because it is a tad closer to me than the Mont campus.

    Yes, I did upload some documents and all were accepted except 2. I have the record showing I received the immunization but they need the lab work to show titers wether I am immune are not so I have to get that done then I will have completed everything. How about you?

    I have printed all the necessary docs to sign. I just obtained my immunization which is not really complete according to what the school is requesting. So I too have to get that done and upload everything. My records don't really show the mmr so I may have to get that done. But I'm so excited to get this program started!!

    Where are you going to do the tithers? Who has the best price for that, I'm not sure if my insurance will cover the tithers.

    There are places like any lab test now and and you can try RediClinic inside HEB and CVS. I think the highest titer may run about $60. Try your employer as well. I got the Tdap vaccine at my job for free. I didn't have a comprehensive shot record. I called my high school for the records and they referred me to a City of Houston clinic that had immunization dates. So try those methods as well.

    So I went to the Rediclinic and they charge 90 for the MMR titer and 59 for the varicella titer however if your insurance will cover then you may get it cheaper(mines didn't cover) . So the total cost was 149.00 because they charge a 10.00 lab fee and the P.A said I should have the results in a couple of days. Other than that I am looking forward to orientation on Thursday and getting started. Does anyone have any idea of how many days a week we will have? I assume they will tell us in orientation but I just am curious.

    The prices on the website seemed cheaper. Bummer! But at least you got them done. I suspect I will be going there too for my varicella titer. I think they may take my insurance since they are memorial Hermann affiliated but I could be wrong. They're not necessary so we'll see. I've just set my mind on being on campus 5 days a week. I was trying to find something about that on previous posts but no luck. Looking forward to getting as much info as possible at Thursday's orientation.

    Just spoke with a coworker who did the paramedic transition program and he said 3 days as well.

    And I heard that we will have 2 dosage calculation test. Wow !!!!!! I can only remember one test in the Lvn program and Math is really not one of my stronger subjects so if that's true I guess I better get a jump on it and brush up a little.
