    Hey Guys, I've got one question and one comment:

    1. Since our computer choice is due March 14th, which computer are y'all looking into getting?

    2. Our online training for nursing school is up: Course Catalog - Nursing Student - 4 through 9 are listed

    I will be getting the small MAC. Are we required to email Mrs. R**** and let her know which laptop it is? I haven't heard any information regarding the computers or when we have to pay.

    I'm getting the Mac as well. Most likely the smaller one. Nina - I just received the email yesterday in the official email account. Make sure to check there! I haven't actually opened all of the attachments yet so I'm not sure how we contact them about it, but I'm pretty sure it's a form that we have to fill out.

    Ashley - Thanks for the heads up about the online training!

    I was thinking about getting the Mac too. I am leaning towards the larger one, only because my current laptop is a 15" and I'm not too sure how small the 13'' actually is. Also, I am not a fan of Dell Products; however, I haven't used one in over 8 years, and I haven't bothered to look up reviews either.

    Just got the email that we need to email Mrs. F instead.

    Based on what former students have said, I'm getting the MAC too. I emailed Ms. F**** (apparently Ms.R**** is no longer handling our paperwork?) but she told me we have to pay for the computer ahead of time and will be reimbursed for it through financial aid afterwards. I don't know how that will work though.

    I got that email too. She isn't at the HSC anymore. I hope all of our documents got transferred over safely. Looking at the computer email,it looks like there is already about 80 people in the program.

    Other threads have mentions of people having issues with the Dell plus they are the most expensive. Can anyone recommend good housing/apt areas in SA?

    I'm hoping former students from the Accelerated program could jump in and provide some advice

    I was going to go ahead and forward Mrs. F all emails I have recently sent to Ms. P... I would rather be safe than sorry...

    Also, while I am currently studying at OU, I am originally from San Antonio, so I will probably go ahead and live with my parents during Nursing School. However, because I was originally thinking of living on my own/with my boyfriend, I was told from friends and family that there are apartment options near campus. Housing can get expensive for one bedrooms, it might be best to try and live with others....

    I have very little experience with apple products, besides the occasional iPad use, so I'm really not sure which computer to get. For those of you talking about getting MAC's, do you normally use PC products right now or MAC? I don't want to have trouble working my computer on top of doing nursing school. Any thoughts?

    I used to use a Dell religiously even though I had so many issues with overheating and occasional viruses. I always had a tough time dealing with their customer support as well. I bought my Macbook Pro (13") in 2010 maybe? I've been using it since and have only had one issue when sending emails with large attachments. I personally have been converted to an apple fan, however I haven't tried out any of the new PCs to see if there has been improvement on their part. My husband and the rest of my family have also switched over to using Macbook Pros.

    In addition, I believe I remember an email from one of the staff members at UTHSCSA saying that they recommend getting one of the Macbook Pros since a lot of students had issues with the PCs last year. Something to keep in mind!
