    If you guys don't mind me asking, what were your science and undergraduate GPAs and your score on the TEAS test? I just had my phone interview Friday and am still finishing up Microbiology (ending next week) so I have not been given a decision but I would like to see what people who are getting in have.

    Thanks!!
    My science GPA was a 3.3 and my undergraduate GPA was around a 3.2. My score on the TEAS was an 80. I have several years of experience in orthopedics and in critical care as a tech, and my references came from my clinical nurse managers. What really sets this school apart from a lot of others is that the admissions committee looks at the whole picture. Good luck with finishing Microbiology and getting an admissions decision!!

    My science GPA was a 3.97 and my Teas was an 81.3. I had absolutely no experience in direct healthcare, but I did work with developmentally disabled adults for the past 5 years performing ADL's on a daily basis. I'm moving from Ny to live in Colonial Grand at Town park. Does anyone know what the daily schedules will look like or why orientation is 2 days long?

    I also was accepted .....I have talked to the people at Pebble Creek, and she said they had some openings. She also said that they are very familiar with Remington students and that there is a study group in the club house that a few students have created... But I want to keep looking around to. I'm so excited to finally start this program! Does anyone know any information about orientation?

    I am moving from New York, I am staying a few days after orientation to hopefully find an apartment, I would like to find a nice, clean furnished place to make things easier but it's hard to judge from what in finding on the Internet. I'm soo excited! Bell Timacuan looked really nice, does anyone know why exactly people are saying Sanford is not good? I also liked, Lakes Edge but that was in Sanford.

    I just found out my old coworker lives in the area he said try your best to not live in Sanford you won't like it. Just an FYI

    Okay, thankss!! I will keep looking. No way! I live on the long island, queens borderline and I am also dreading the drive down. My parents are driving with me so it won't be as bad.

    Yeah I had to enlist the help of my mom and dad too. Is anybody planning on living at Colonial Grand at Town park? I'm freaking out a little bit because I took A&P over a year ago and have forgotten several bits of information? Is anyone in the same boat?

    I was looking into it. The two bedrooms seem pretty affordable. I'm just going to have all my info all together and then look for a roommate, hopefully at orientation, and reserve one as soon as I find somebody! I feel like this is all so last minute i wonder if we could set up a group on a social media network or something?

    I completely understand about what not remembering info from prerequisites. I bought 2 books a Physiology "made really easy" and Pharmacology "made really easy" and they are wonderful! I am hoping they will refresh some info and get me prepared to start!
