    Hi!

    I got accepted in the same cohort. I have soo many questions. How is the program? How feasible is it to move through the program with the competency-based model?

    Congrats JazzyKaine!
    I am happy to try to answer some of your questions- feel free to PM me.

    I'm not quite sure if I understand your question. So I will say this....The pre-licensure program is slightly different than the other degree programs. So when you see people saying that they complete their degree relatively fast i.e. 1 term. That DOES NOT apply to the pre-licensure program. Your first term you can play with the order in which you take the required classes. The following terms- you will follow the degree plan.

    In regards to the competency exams. Each course mentor is different-some may suggest you go through the course of study and then take the PA. Others will suggest that you take the PA first to assess your strengths and weakness and return to the course of study based upon that. I suggest, reviewing the COS- watching the cohort videos and/or attending live sessions for the course when available. Always reach out to the course mentor early on if you have any questions or need guidance on how to get started.

    Also, once the classes are loaded in your profile- you can look around at the syllabus ahead of time.

    I hope I answered your question. If not, shoot me a message and I will clarify.
