    I think I may take micro in the summer. U will have a well deserved rest then from now till sept. Enjoy it cuz you'll be busy busy with nursing classes! hopefully I can get in on 2011 class. U will be a year ahead of me by then! Just think next year at this time ypou will be with the first semester. I heard the first and third semesters are the hardest.. don't know how that is determined tho. Well 5 months till may, and 9 months till sept. It will go by quick I saw a cool first year nursing student planner at barnes and noble. It has an organized section for school stuff, then some sections with info related to the first year of nursing. It looked cool... did u tell mcc u work at lahey yet?

    That good. I actually really liked Mircobio. It was hard, but labs were actually interesting & class. My prof. was cool (I took it in Bedford though.) Thanks , Yes I feel this break is a good thing.. to relax, work , get experience before NURSING classes (: everything happens for a reason! I am sure this FALL is going to be the hardest semester yet, but I am SO ready I have waited so long for this , as YOU CAN RELATE! that is so cool about B&N! I am def. going to have to see if I can find that planner, I love planners ha. Thanks! i e-mailed human resources to tell then I work at Lahey & go to MCC. But since i already got into fall I dont think it matters?..

    Hi james, did u apply for days, or evening/weekend? I know they have started sending out letters already. I am waitlisted for evening program and I ws told its a 2yr wait. U should call nursing admissions and give them ur info and see what they say. That's what I did. Have u completed all prereqs?

    Erindel- Thanks about the planner, I am def. going to try to find it! I actually met a girl at Orintation at Lahey who was on the waitlist at MCC. We both got our letters the same day for FALL. BUT... She was on stand by (i guess 3 people are on stand by per semster just incase someone doesnt accept , or doesnt end up doing it/droppping out etc) so she found out she is starting in JAN Now. im Jealous lol. but still so excited for fall & focusing on working..

    James--My application was complete around march09 also. I got a letter last week for my acceptance for Fall2010. Have you recieved a letter? Days or nights & weekends? Goodluck.

    Wow erin, that girl got lucky! She is starting in like 4 weeks! Well I think ur pretty lucky too... I wish I was able to start in sept. Well my turn will come, hopefully in 2011 rather than 2012... that's cool u have someone at work with the same situation as you though. Its cool to meet people who are in the same boat and accepted into the same program. Was that girl a tech or a secretary? Wow imagine I got called off standby for next fall! That's a dream..... well I hope u have a nice holiday and talk to u soon

    The only pre-req i have left to take is micro which i will be taking in the spring (all of the other pre-reqs i completed from a previous degree). I spoke with Camille Brown and she does the admissions for nursing and said that I am on standby for the fall. I will be in the day program when ever i do get accepted. Good luck to everyone.
