MDC Spring 2010

Posted

You are reading page 4 of MDC Spring 2010. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

looks like you are right...that would be terrible...a whole new set of classes :crying2:

I'm happy with the classes I already scheduled on Seq 1...I have Mondays off, plus clinicals at Mt. Sinai

tomorrow is my interview...praying that they go easy on me :bowingpur

I stand corrected, you are right, those awarded will not get a new set of classes. What I mentioned was the format that was going to be used originally, and they may still implemented it for the following term. They wanted to have all the UM Scholars together in each class but that will not happen this semester. They are going to see how this Spring turns out. So what you were told was the current model that will be used for the Spring.

Hello prospectiveMDC and future MDC nurses, are you all ready for the spring, its so close by, seems like winter break will be the last break for us for a while...
Hey ruis90, we're so close that by the time this post is read by some, we would have started already. I will add, that during the semester, most likely I will not be venturing in allnurses. My focus will be in studying 24/7.

Prospective,

The day that I left for my trip our beloved scholarship advisor informed me that she had spoken to the dean so said that they would allow me to have my interview on January 4th. Im still waiting for the details, but Im so grateful for this opportunity!

Happy holidays to everyone. Hope to see you all in school next year

Hey MDCupcake, I now understand how they were able to move your appointment to the 4th. What we went to was a preliminary interview. The real deal may come soon after. Please, let us know which you receive on the 4th? If UM representatives are there, it's the real deal.

In conclusion, I understood the final results will by next Friday. So i'm not even sure if there will time for those next batch of interviews since the only ideal day would have been on the 4th, the day b4 classes begin.

Btw, if your classes are paid for already by your own money and you will be receiving this scholarship, you have to get your schedule reversed for an unpaid extension. So the then your voucher can pay for it. If you do not do this your 1st semester will stay paid by your own funds and voucher will kick in next semester.

You may want to do that on the 4th. You can also ask that question on the 4th and they will tell you who you have to see that knows exactly what's going on and what to do so you don't have to pay out of pocket your first semester.

It will also cover books and uniforms, though I don't know what happens to those that purchased their books already. I asked the head of the bookstore and his reply was a no go. If it applies to you, ask that if possible. As for me I purchased my books from former students, at rock bottom prices. Anyways, at the end they ask if you have any questions.

Good Luck.

Happy New Year everybody.

Hey Prospective,

We just made it back last night. I feel like I've been out of the loop for so long now. Ok, get schedule reversed for an unpaid extension, got it, thank you!! I honestly have to idea what I'm going into tomorrow morning. I'm a little under the weather, and seriously jet lagged so I'm just going to do my best. Do you know what the terms of the contract are yet, such as, the consequences for not completing 2 years of employment? I will give you guys a full report when I get back. Heres hoping it goes well. :-)

See you all soon!

Nice to hear from you. Hope you get well fast.

Going from former posts of others who have done Jackson/Baptist Scholars, is that you can alway buy yourself out of the contract. I would be prorated based on what you have and have not worked. So say after a year of full time employment, it would be like $2,500.

The refund would have to go to Workforce since they are putting up the funds. However, i'm not sure how that would play out with UM since they are not putting up the funds. What do they get in return for an employee breaking the contract.

In all you bring up an excellent question, since Baptist/Jackson Scholars were all paid by the respective hospitals, you simply bought your way out if you wanted to leave early. Now, since UM puts up nothing but the job opening/position... it would feel weird just to say bye i'm leaving and they get nothing in return.

Btw, PM me with your Professors and days, I want to see if we both have some classes together. From what I hear I got lucky with all my professors, at least thats according to current students and what some MDC staff have told me.

Hello!

Has anyone on this thred asked for a private Student loan for living and personal expenses while in nursing school? I would love to hear some feedback.

Thanks :D

Hello everyone! I have just registered to this site , although, I've kept my eyes on it for some time. I wanted to get an honest opinion in regards of the liklihood in my acceptance for the Nursing Program at MDC. I have a GPA of 4.0 however, I have three W's(withdraws from class). I understand that one of the requirements in joining the program is having no more than 3 W's but will these 3 Withdrawls exempt me from being accepted?

Any opinion is greatly appreciated! And also, congratualations in being in the Nursing Program this spring! :)

Hello Sarah,

I don't know the answer to your question as it doesn't apply to my case. However, I would suggest coming to the Medical campus in person to see an Admissions Advisor as it is very hard to get through by phone. Good luck! and sorry I wasn't much help :crying2:

Hey Sarah,

I found this bit of information on the medical center campus website. I hope this helps to answer your question

Additional Information

Students with 3 or more grades of "D", "F", or "W" in required Natural Science courses are not eligible for entry in the Associate Degree Nursing program. Students are also required to have no more than two (2) enrollments (D, F, W) for any individual natural science course for the program.

Good luck,

MDCupcake

P.S. grad2011, I hope your studying your butt off ;-) see you on Monday

Thanks you, MDCupcake for responding to my post.:) However, I found this information under requirements in the School of Nursing site: All Options are required to have no more than a total of three (3) grades of D, F, or W in the natural science courses for the program. All Options are required to have no more than two (2) enrollments (D, F, or W) for any individual science course for the program.

I will go to the medical campus for further advisement.

I appreciate the advice guys and I wish you all the best! I hope you guys don't mind me posting on this particular thread from time to time, as it is the most current with my situation.

Sarah,

I hope you find your answer. I'm sure no one minds that you ask questions. We're just getting started ourselves, but hopefully we can be of some help to you!

Wishing you the best,

Thanks So Much!!! I have an idea of what to expect:)

Tatortots: where is the schedule for the fall posted? I looked but couldn't find it. Thanks!

You go to the current students tab and log in. After that you go to search for open classes and select Fall. Select Medical campus and for course put "NUR" all nursing courses will show up and the times.

Hope that helps

It is so exciting to see all these profs and knowing I will be in some of their classes in a few months. :) Anyone heard anything yet??

Did anyone get an email in the MDC mail about a mandatory scholarship information session for Wednesday June 16??? Who is going??

I got an e-mail too-- and will be going. Glad I read on here that they sent them out because otherwise I probably would have deleted it as junk mail!

I also received the email. Its from the Dean of Advisement. On the bottom of the email there is a note:

"PLEASE NOTE: The final dreams for admissions to the Nursing Program have not been accomplished. This letter is not notification of admission to the program."

I wont get my hopes up just yet. :confused:

Oh boy, I was so excited at first and thought the same thing. Shouldn't shout for victory just yet lol.

But I am still excited about going to that. What were your GPAs, may I ask?? I mean, it does appear the recipients themselves were rather selective. If it weren't for that latter part in bold, I would have thought it to be rather "official"~ :confused:
