I am 6 months into my program and its true.... you do not have a life. I have exams every week, sometimes two exams per week and I am only in 3 classes (2 nursing related w/ 2 labs, and patho). And there is about 15% males in the program. Good news is every girl knows you, the bad news is every girl knows you
I dont remember the last I saw my friend outside of nursing school because we dont have the time for that. Good luck if you have a girlfriend who understands that. Not to mention, when I am not in school, I will be at the library studying with my study group from the minute the library opens to the second the library closes, every single day.
What could I have changed? Go out, have fun, enjoy your life/friends because you wont when you start. Save up as much money as you can because if you dont have to work, it will work in your benefit. Get a smartphone/PDA/books/dvd or something and start reviewing stuff now and be aware of the fundimental skills now.
I also was forced to upgrade my phone too because of the constant calls/text messages related to school
