    Hey! Have you gotten any more info from UM? I'm Christopher by the way! Are you excited for the fall? I did my background check and my immunizations form. I'm waiting to get more info! I was told they were going to register us. How about you?

    Hi...I'm currently in the Summer 09 program. We're about 2 weeks away from finishing our first semester. Congratulations on being accepted. Here are a few helpful tidbits:

    1)Cancel your gym membership...you won't have time to use it. If you skip lecture to go to the gym, don't plan on doing well on the tests.

    2) If you're in a relationship buy your partner a nice year-long trip to somewhere nice. You'll see them about the same amount of time, and this way they won't be mad. They'll think, "Hey...I'm on a year-long trip to Paris."

    3) Buy the $50 stethoscope. You don't need the $200 one, and everybody likes the $50 one better anyway.

    4) Remember...it's never too late to fail! We only have 2 weeks left and 50% of our grade is still up for grabs in most of our classes.

    5) It all seems fun at first....then at around week 3 it gets REALLY deep REALLY fast!

    6) When your pharmacology teacher sends you a study guide, and says "know this for the test." It's not merely a suggestion.

    7) There's one class you'll have that you just have to treat like an online-course and learn on your own. You'll figure out which one it is around week 4. Good luck with that.

    You all get to do in 15 weeks what we did in 10, so it might not be so rough for you. I wish you all the best. Remember, repeatedly hitting your head against a wall is always a good way to relieve stress.

    Hi. I hope you are all doing well in your courses. I was hoping to get some feedback from someone who is currently in or recently graduated from the accelerated BSN program. I have been accepted into UM for ABSN program for May 2010. I also got accepted into Nova's BSN program. I am having a hard time deciding which one to choose. If you had to do it all over again, would you have chosen the accelerated route again and the regular BSN?

    I submitted my application and letters of recommendations including the one from the dean over the summer. I was told I wouldn't know anything until Feb so I was completely shocked when I got my letter yesterday. My GPA is 3.5. My advise would be not wait for a deadline. When you have your information ready and your prereqs send your application.

    Good luck!
