    Waiting to hear if I get in! I was a little bummed about the 2 1/2 years but it will be well worth it when I am done.

    While i was doing my prereqs my admissions advisor told me that i need to take pharmacology class...i had an issue with that course because community colleges here in San Diego already started their semester and i'm aiming for the October cohort. My advisor also told me that the school doesn't offer pharmacology so this totally frustrated me. Then one day when we talked again, i told my advisor that i really can't get in to any class because my application is really late so i'll have to take pharm while in the program. My advisor told me that it's fine and they'll send my application to get reviewed, i was even told that pharm and nutrition serves as "brownie points"? or additional points for my application. I got admitted to the program and my new mentor helped me with the courses needed to be taken before clinicals, and one of the courses was pharm. i just didn't say anything anymore because i don't want to make a big deal out of it, "i got in" that's what matters now. But telling prospective students courses not being offered by WGU which they do offer is a bit of a mess. I was stressed for several months because of thinking too much LOL. If you don't have pharm just let them know because i took the course from WGU while in the program. The program is 2 1/2 years now, it's ok though. Right now i'm finishing up with one more class, we already had our interviews before clinicals on Sept.
    Hi lyfhcky,
    How did that Pham course go for you? I have everything except that Pharm course and most likely be taking it through WGU.
