    Really.... Do you have a previous bachelors degree?? What all did they say when they called you? I'm very curious because I've applied to the summer start program and I'm anxiously waiting to hear... they say they will start letting us know around March. I'm nervous Nelly here!!

    What were your stats if you don't mind me asking (GPA and HESI)?

    I was on waitlist for Spring 2013. They called and said although I did not make it into the Spring class would I be interested in the summer start program. I of course screamed and said yes!
    I have a previous BS in Psych. Overall GPA- 3.5 (did not do well in some basic classes I took my freshman year in 1988) 4.0- science HESI 93% 850 in Critical thinking
    Trust me....I UNDERSTAND....I just went thru it...plus being on the waitlist, we did not get a definite no until the classes officially started. So I went from totally deflated to completely elated!!! So hang in there! Good luck!

    Stock up on ink cartridges for your printer.

    I guess the best thing I can suggest is make sure you're super organized. Manage your time well to avoid stress as much as possible. The workload seems pretty intimidating, but I've been trying to break it down as best as I can. Like, Thurs I reviewed things I learned during this week. Fri - printed out notes/powerpoint slides and did readings and whatnot to prepare for pharm next week, yesterday - did the same to prepare for care I next week, today I'm doing HA work, and tomorrow I'll work on patho. I want to make sure I'm well prepared by the time exams come, of course.

    In addition to the books I needed for class, I picked up a copy of "Med-Surg Success" and "Fundamental's Success" from the Davis' Q&A series for practice questions.

    I read the syllabus for each class and make charts ahead of time so I know exactly what to do from one week to another, what's due, when the exams are, etc.

    Since it's still early in the semester, I'm still experimenting a bit to see what study techniques work best. After the first exams, I'm hoping to have a clearer idea on what things are the most important to study.

    I've noticed it's best when I can apply something I learned in one class to what I'm learning in another class.

    I keep a binder for each class so I can keep my handwritten notes and everything I print out together. Again, stay organized, not only with your time, but w/your notes and everything.

    I'll try to post back if I learn anything else that might be helpful, haha.

    Thanks for the insight!! Sounds pretty intense, but manageable as long as you stay on top of it! Good Luck and keep us posted!!
