    Nevermind, I just logged into Merlin and I could accept there.
    But, I never received an email?
    So, everyone else just make sure to check Merlin, because it might be there.

    You are not alone... I've checked my e-mail 4 times today. Still nothing. But I think your right, we SHOULD have something this week. Hopefully! Haha, I too have that fear of dreams shredding and encountering an "Oops, sorry!" message. As for orientation, I don't actually know but am guessing each campus' will be different? Since their response deadline is so soon. Just a guess though.
    Yay! I am glad your MOST likely coming to Tech
    On that note, plus sharing helpful information, lets just agree to study groups now? lol!

    Btw, I'm Lynsey. Its nice to "meet" you, Sarah!
    Nice to meet you Lynsey! Yes, I agree to study groups! lol I am getting pretty anxious about my offer now-- I might of emailed one of the advisors about it oopsiee Also on a completely random note I can NOT wait to buy scrubs! YES!! Is anyone else looking at apartments in lubbock?

    Hopefully your offer will come in before the weekend is out! Haha, I can't wait to buy mine either! Wonder if we have to wait till orientation?

    Do to some of the area being high in crime, I am starting to look at rooms for rent and apartments until we get up there and can talk with a realtor in person.

    Btw, has anyone read the nursing manual? I read most of it the other day and wondered if everyone was life support, CPR, etc. trained? It said something about that in the manual as a requirement before starting classes. Do you think they'll go over this in orientation or that I should knock it out now? I've taken a college first aid class with a section on CPR, its really easy, I just never got certified.

    i also noticed that when i read the manual. i thought we would get more info when we got our formal offers. i took an emt-b class a few years ago and had my cpr card, but never got it renewed.

    Hey LittleMissRedRaider & Mchicky24 I believe it is a BLS certification for health care providers- the certification lasts for two years and I paid twenty bucks to get mine. Mine will be up in january 2013 so I am just going to get it renewed over xmas break. I am sure they will go over this at orientation and is def nothing to worry about. The CPR class is just a one day thing and you take the test that day-- no biggie. lol I see no problem with knocking out the CPR requirement whenever you can because it is a requirement for nursing school. However, I recommend calling first to confirm that they do want a BLS certification for health care providers. Also, I know we will have to be up to date on our shots and they will def want you t have your hep B shots. You guys most likey have all of these vaccinations-- it'll just be getting all the paper work together that will be a bit of a drag.

    Also, to anyone else that has not received their official offer I talked to the advisers and they said they are hoping to have all the formal offers out by the end of this week or sometime during next week.. So don't worry! Also, I believe at orientation they prepare a slide show in regards to student loans, FASA, and scholarships (because I found the slideshow from last year). YAY!! This is so exciting!!

    I'm also really excited! I think we have to wait until orientation to buy scrubs, because I think the students wear red scrubs with their name inscribed? I'm not positive about that though.

    I just wanted to know if anyone knows when we sign up for our fall classes and how do we know which ones to register for? I know they will probably discuss this during orientation, however in El Paso where I will be going orientation is not until August 16th when school is scheduled to start on the 22nd?

    @haboubkar Mine was just in Merlin too. Did you receive an email or anything? Because I didn't, I just checked a couple of days ago and it was there for me to accept and pay the $100.
