Jun 24, '09Joined: Jun '09; Posts: 117; Likes: 6JMarie.....got all my letters, birth cert copy, license copy and my high school transcript.....I dont know where my diploma is so the transcript should be enough. I am still waiting for my college transcript to see if I should include it - I took a lot of classes that I "dropped" out of unofficially so they are "F"s instead of withdrawns. So if it looks too bad I am not gonna include it. Tomorrow I will do my letter and resume and then wait with baited breath until tues!!
I know what you mean about speaking eloquently - of course when i called to leave my message I was al Umm ahhh. Then when he called me back on my cell the call got dropped in the middle of our pphonecall!!!! I was praying please call back. Then I swear I didnt say anything except ok, yes, ok yes. I was a bumbling idiot. Hopefully I do better face to face. Make sure you let us know how it went after your interview.

I remember being so stressed trying to get all of that stuff together also. One thing I did was to send them the references and intent letter before I met with them so that they had time to read it. I don't know if it really matters but it made me feel better knowing that he knew my intentions before I walked in. Prisi- Did he read your letter and recommendations in front of you? For me he just went thru his check list and told me everything about the program including what classes will be taken during the different semesters, cost and he stressed how difficult the program was. He never read anything in front of me.
I don't know.....I'm just trying to find a way for all of you to get in.
Stay positive, I know a previous student who interviewed in June, was told to go take some college courses and come back next year and then was called in July because a spot opened up. She had no college courses or medical experience and is now a working LPN.
I enjoy this thread and I can't wait until we ALL can talk about another subject.....being accepted, getting our books and etc....
On another note........can you believe Michael Jackson! What a shock. I am totally dating myself but I can remember watching that Thriller video over and over again.
Jun 25, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 95; Likes: 2ok didnt want to mention it but ya....It is just soo sad....Its all over the news..just a shock...he was a troubled man...imagine being the EMT that responded? aww man and to not be able to help?? anyways....
YA! I cannot wait for us to be rejoicing and being excited about orientation and our 1st day!!!! I appreciate all the info keke everything you can say helps!!!!!
I am writing out my resume and just realized how unaccomplished I am...LOL aww man But like you said even without experiencce it CAN happen so ..honestly that is what is keeping me positive and hopeful! So back to this resume....ughhhhhh hahha
Jun 25, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 95; Likes: 2but then again of course my mind always goes to..well ya they may not have medical experience but their test scores must have been excellent....mine however passing not so wonderful.....i know...positivity...im going nuts!!! Is it over with yet? lol
Jun 25, '09Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 95; Likes: 2AAAAnnnndddd...I am weary about the fact that payment is due 2 days after my interview 1 day after sawyers so...i feel even if they like you no matter what you are put on a waiting list...i dont know...not to get anyones nerves up..tho I am sure I do a great job on that i cant help but wonder... ok NOW i feel all that is nagging at me is out and NOW I can concentrate on this dang resume....its been way too long...lol
Jun 25, '09Joined: Jun '09; Posts: 117; Likes: 6JMarie.......breathe and relax (that is what I am telling myself too):wink2: You will have your stuff in time and just in case bring the unofficial hs transcript and just tell him that the hs was ******* you around and being too slow - but please find a more eloquent way to tell him!
Keke - I am dying to change the subject too so hopefully by next week there will be a different thread with a different title that says something positive! I didnt want to mail my stuff in early because I was paranoid that it would get lost in the shuffle - On the day of the NET when I went to give my name - they didnt have it so I was sweating bullets until the woman found my app and said she forgot to put my name on the list!!
I am shocked about Michael J too - Keke I remember watching the video too - didnt MTV announce in plenty of time so we could all gather around the TV to watch it - was it on after school or at nite? I feel like I remember that I was psyched to get home from school to watch it - what year was that? Was it before VCRs were popular (oh god now I sound geriactirc!!)
Have a good weekend guys and Jmarie - post if you are feeling overwhelmend - it seems to help when reading this thread.Last edit by Silverdragon102 on Jun 26, '09 : Reason: changed to all ****

Jun 29, '09Joined: Jun '09; Posts: 117; Likes: 6OK....I've got all my stuff together and JMarie - my statement is way more than 200 words! Now I feel sick to my stomach and I know the feeling wont pass until I know one way or the other. I am taking all of tomorrow off because I dont think I will be able to function at work!
JMarie....cant wait to hear your experience - I was sending positive vibes your way.
