    I was accepted too. I had 9.64/10 points.

    @CluelessNursingGuy Can you believe we finally made it? Been a loooong wait since micro xD Congratsss. & Congrats to everyone else!! How many capstones have you taken? And when do you register? I register on Thursday and don't know if I should even register for everything because that would take away seats from other students. But if something goes wrong I guess it's good to have a backup?

    I was just looking over the beginning of the thread when we were both freaking out about our grades for micro, HAHA! Look at us now. It feels so long ago, but in reality, it really has it been. Congrats!

    I've only taken 2 capstones. I need 1 more. I think I'll just register for the ones I'm interested in and then drop them according to what fits my schedule since we won't know our nursing class schedules until after the orientation. You're done with all your GEs, right?

    Congrats once again!

    Yeah I've taken 3 capstones. Hoping to get nutrition and pharmacology done online in the summer to lessen my load even more!

    Can you recommend any capstones?

    For all people who need to complete capstones, the following classes have the reputation of being EASY and are taught by GREAT professors:

    CLCS 300I - PAGAN CULTURE
    CWL 320I - COMIC SPIRIT
    DANC 373I - NONVERB COMM INTERAC
    H SC 425I - HUMAN SEXUALITY
    MUS 468I - MUSIC AND FILM
    REC 340I - LEISURE CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY

    This site won't let me name drop so if you want names of professor pm me. I honestly think that if you can take one of these capstones in the first semester of nursing, you should because they are easy enough and won't add drastically to your workload.

    To register for classes, would transfers have to attend the SOAR first?

    I just looked through the list of capstones on the list that was provided and they look ABSOLUTELY POINTLESS! Especially if you already have an AA, AS degree etc and/or have completed all your GE's. I feel as though it'd be a repeat to have to take this classes. I'm not at all excited about having to waist my money on them. When I read that capstones were required THIS was not at all what I has in mind. I thought it'd be a nursing related project like most other schools.

    Congrats to everyone who has been accepted. I will be joining some of you in the Fall'.

    Btw (cluelessnursingguy), thank you for the tip on capstones. I would like to know what professors you recommend for those courses listed. But, I cannot use the p/m function.

    I would be aiming for the trimester program. Anyone else thinking of that? I know it will be tough, but I've been in school awhile now and I'm ready to get on with it already, haha.

    Also, for those of you transferring, is anyone else transferring from out of the area? If I accept, I will be looking for housing and am wondering if anyone else will be looking for places?
    I am out of of the area as well. But I am still deciding whether to accept or not.

    You need 3 capstones. The links to the lists of capstones can be found at the bottom of this page: Schedule of Classes
    Wait! What you mean we all need 3 capstones? Are these GE requirements? So, our first semester at SON we are still taking GE classes before the nursing load? Im confused.

    I haven't taken Pharmacology, Pathophysiology yet. Do you think I should take those classes during summer?
    Are they hard? Since I had been working so hard to get in the program, I feel like I want to have a summer vacation, but I don't want to have a hard time at the beginning of the semester.

    Regarding capstone, usually they require two essays and one short essay. School just wants to make sure if you know how to write. Usually, most of capstone classes are easy. I will be finishing all capstone in two weeks.
    You have to complete 3 capstone before you graduate. So, you can take those classes during summer.

    Do you know where I can take pharmacology and pathyology during summer?
    I checked Goldwen West and Coastline, but they don't offer those classes this summer.
