    Does anyone know what the weekly schedule is like? how many days are we doing lecture and clinical?
    During the first year, your schedule is pretty chaotic, or at least it was when I started 2 years ago. Monday you have class during the morning through mid afternoon. Tuesday you would spend the first half of the day in clinical/simulation and the second half in a classroom setting. Or visa verse, depending on your group. Wednesday was afternoon classes and Thursday and Friday alternated clinical and simulation. It's very time consuming for the entire first year in the program. The schedules are very different for everyone (between various groups, clinical sites, and coursework) so it's difficult to say how your schedule might look. When I first started, I looked at my schedule on raiderlink and thought, "wow! Class only 3 times a week. No big deal." But the raiderlink schedule doesn't account for clinical time. You will get a specific schedule on the first day of class. Your entire week is jam packed with nursing stuff. My best advice is to get a planner, and carry it with you everywhere. You won't be able to function without it. Hopefully that gives you an idea of what it's like. Good luck!

    Is anyone following this thread or know of anyone that is still waiting to hear anything? I still haven't received an email regarding an acceptance, denial or wait listing. Just checking to see if anyone is in the same boat as me! Thanks!

    @lwood09 I haven't heard anything at all either and me reading these posts is just giving me anxiety. I've emailed them twice in the past week and all they've said is that my application is still under review by the committee which it being the last day of April, I think that's bull.

    You have no idea.. I have been stressing out ever since people have been getting accepted/asked to make the video essays. I emailed them also last week and she said that emails were still going out. I also called today and left messages so hopefully we hear something soon. I'm so confused on the process this year. I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one who still hasn't heard anything.

    I've been following this thread as well and have not heard back from TT. I sent in my application the day before the deadline and someone told me that because I sent it late, they'll respond to me late. Idk, Im still waiting.

    I applied to the Lubbock campus. I don't think it matters when you submit your application. I submitted mine 2 weeks before the deadline.

    I don't think it does either. I know when it was driving me crazy, I called the nursing coordinator and she told me the deadline we would hear by and I heard by then.
