    Got my orientation letter today and it is scheduled for Monday June 22 8am sharp! Does anyone know if I am better off paying for the books though Veeb or going elsewhere. My letter said Approx. $500.00 for books.. Just wondering if I can get ffrom a book store or online for cheaper( if it is a small difference than I will save my time and buy through veeb).

    Hey everyone, I've been watching these posts since feb when I took the Nelson Denny Test. I was kind of worried about joining the post and not getting in. I got my acceptance letter and now got my orientation letter. I will be with you guys down in june 22. My friend who lives literally five houses down from me took the test at the same time and also got in. We are in the Elmont, LI area if people want to create study groups when class starts (and carpooling). Message me if intersted.

    Hey Miaizon dont get discouraged... I too was on the waiting list for the bridge. She told me they send the letters out as they get new spots.. some people cant make 5pm-9pm Mon-Thur...a lot of people have kids, and a job among other things.

    Hey out there...I have to pay my downpayment but I was getting scared because I herad the at the program is really hard. anyone is on the program now? How is it? Will I be fine. Do you think they will still take my downpayment.....I will do it on Monday..... What do you guys think???
    It's hard as far as the amount of material. Most of the material though is very straightforward, and you won't always get away with cramming. It honestly feels like highschool.

    Its basically all memorization. Make sure you can commit at least 3 hours studying your notes before each exam.

    The people I've seen get dropped, slacked in the beginning and didn't care until they were on thin ice. And sometimes it was due to them concentrating too much on pharmacology, and too little on the other subjects.

    And to the guys, not to rain on your parade or anything. But like half the males have gotten dropped, lets just say some got "distracted" and some let the "tough" guy, too "cool" to study act get in the way.
