Carol called me today, they lost my drug test results then found them...omg I know what else huh. She said orientation is Wed the 4th from 10am to 1pm. School is set to start on Nov 9th. We should get our books on Wed and hopefully our uniforms too. If uniforms are not passed out Wed then we should get them Monday. I was told to wear scrubs to school if we have them otherwise wear something school appropriate. Hope this helps.

Jen, did you get an "invite " in the mail or are they just calling people about orientation? Carol didn't give me the time last I was there, just the date. Good to know time now!

have any of you found out the bottom line what the total costs, financial aid, and out-of-pocket expenses will be?

I wonder if it is their strategy that the financial aid "issue" is left to the very end so that by the time we make it to this point and find out what it's actually gonna cost - we've got so much invested (emotionally, physically, time-wise), that they just expect us to carry through, no matter what the cost.

have any of you wondered the same thing, by any chance?

I thought I posted it before, but the total tuition (including books, uniforms, supplies, that stuff) is $28,450 (minus $20 enrollment fee to make it $28,430). As for out of pocket, I'd imagine gas money to get to school/clinicals (kind of a duh), and...not sure if anything else. Financial aid really does depend on your situation, how much money you made last year, etc. At least for sac they calculate for the first 9 months, because that's all they are able to determine as far as disbursement date stuff goes right now, but you will get called in again "next year" to recalculate more aid you are eligible for since the program goes through not only the 09/10 school year but partially the 10/11 school year.

When we sign up for a private school, we can kinda figure it's going to be really high tuition, because they all are. Yes they want their money, but they don't get the same funding that community colleges do for example. the sky high tuitions at private schools are due to that; they help pay for the facility, the teachers' salaries, the desks, the computers, everything...they don't get money from the government like the public schools do for upkeep and all that. The most they get from the government is the title IV funding (your fed grants and loans).

Applemom, I just happened to remember to ask Carol what time the orientation was while she called to tell me that they found my drug test results. I did receive a call later in the day from my rep telling me the time too. There was a letter sent from what I hear but we all know how that goes LOL!

Well guys, I gave up my seat too :'( my husband made over 100K last year so I didn't get any grants and for the loans I only got 6k and the rest was was the alternative loan option but I don't deal with interest so I gave up... We hav no savings either as my hubby dearest used all of it used it on a down payment on a house he bought for his parents....and I don't work.....so may be next year? I'm really sad though, spent the night crying :'( but on a positive and happy note, congrats to all those who will be starting school soon :)
