    I am super excited and nervous! How many points do you have? I have 29... hopefully that's enough!! I submitted my application last month and I can't wait!!!

    Yay! You will be fine I only have 27 points so a little worried but going to stay positive. When I called they told me the last 2 semesters the cut off was 25 points so hopefully things haven't changed much!

    That is good news!!! Are they nice when you call and ask questions? I've never called to ask anything...

    Yes they were nice question for you about the packet... For the checklist you need proof of English proficiency? What did you provide?

    I put my high school transcript in for that. And she checked everything when I turned it in and said it looked good.

    Hi There! I'm applying for fall of 2013. I'm super excited!! I met with the counselor yesterday and need one more document from some transferred credits then my app. is going in! I have 29 points and he told me "you have nothing to worry about". So let's hope he's right. Thanks to whomever started this group....I totally stalked the past couple semesters threads (fall of 2012 and spring of 2013) and am so excited that I'm finally posting in the group I'll be going into!!

    OH! And regarding the English proficiency, the counselor yesterday told me that part only applies to those that are not from the US. If you graduated HS in the US, that part doesn't apply.

    LOL I stalked the other groups too! I couldn't stand it anymore and started our own! On the English thing, I was told by a female counselor we had to include high school transcript for it no matter what starting this semester. Double check before you submit your app! I hate when I hear about people that didn't get in because they didn't include something
    The wait is going to be soooo long! I was told we probably won't get calls until beginning of June!! Has anyone heard different?

    oh my...well...a copy of my high school transcript will go into the packet as well then. I'm just glad to finally be turning the thing in! I'll put whatever they want in there. Thanks for the info!!

    First of all, I want to wish you all the best of luck! I was in your shoes a few months ago and I started the program a month ago. The wait is terribly long (I turned in my packet in July '12 and we didn't get the good news until the end of Oct '12!). The wait was so worth it! I'm so happy right now and I learn new things every day.

    Some advice if you haven't turned in your packet yet:

    -Make a copy of all of the documents that you turn in. I did not do this and I spent 5 months wondering if I forgot to check a box or something.

    -when you do turn in your packet, make sure the nice lady (can't post names :P) in the limited entry office checks over your packet for completeness. Don't just drop it off if possible.

    Once you all get the "good news" I would brush up on your math & dosage calculations. You will have a test in the 3rd week of class and you must score a 90% (10 ?'s) to proceed in the program. If you don't get a 90%, they give you one chance to retake it the following week. If you don't get a 90% on the 2nd try you will be excused from the program. I got an 80% the first time and let me tell you, retaking that test was the most stressful moment of my life! I did pass the second time but I was sooooo nervous! I wish I studied more math! we lost 3 people in my lab & clinical group alone. Im not sure how many people in total were kicked out but I was told that it was more than usual this semester. PM me if you have issues with math and maybe I can help you. There is a toolbox class that will be offered in August before the semester starts. It's a 2 credit class that will help TREMENDOUSLY with dosage calculations. Take the class if you can! They will give you much more info at orientation.

    Another thing, they told you that the point cutoff for Spring '13 was something in the high 20's. I just got word from the LE office that they accepted people with as low as 9 points! What I'm getting at is that you should apply no matter how many points you have! As long as you're done with pre-reqs and TEAS.

    Good luck! And I'm here to help if you have any questions. I may not have much information but when I was in your shoes I really appreciated the help that the people in the program were able to give
