    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

    what is the alternative loan option?

    alternative loan option is when you apply for a private student loan for what fed grants and fed loans won't cover. you will need a cosigner.

    kaplan sacto students - you start on monday, right? can you check on something, please?

    one thing I have not heard discussed by kaplan or by anyone in this thread, and I wasn't savvy enough to ask at my interview, was whether or not kaplan gives an exit exam, i.e., the HESI or ATI (maybe others?).

    there are a couple of threads that I've come across in the past few days that mention the inability of the student to get on with taking the nclex-pn because they weren't able to pass the exit exam administered by the school - and after three strikes, they're out!

    student has to repeat the course, take a refresher, etc., all at added expense.

    any of you know anything 'bout this? :flamesonb

    Hello All! How is everyone's first week going so far?

    so what has happened to the sacramento folks?

    have they entered the deep, dark kaplan black hole, never to be seen or heard from again?

    or perhaps they've been brainwashed and sworn to secrecy?

    or maybe they're inundated with school and homework and aren't able to spare even a single second to share their first days of school?

    soooo....has kaplan in stockton started? curious to see how stockton people are getting along and enjoying their program. we are very busy here in sac!

    stockton starts this coming monday but I will not be joining them. I was accepted but they only notified me the week before TG. after repeated calls, the timing, and general frustration with dealing with kaplan, I declined.

    DH also thought they were unorganized. timing is better for a start after the first of the year. I have been accepted at another nursing school in stockton and start on jan 4th.

    besides, the color of kaplan's uniforms are royal blue - definetly not my color. the other school's are forest green. much better!

    in all seriousness, the sac folks haven't added much to this thread. what are you working on? must be mega-busy! how much time do you spend studying each day?
