    They only look at two things and nothing else: science GPA and recent GPA (I believe the last 60 credits).

    regarding vaccines...

    Does anyone know how recent the titers have to be? I had them done last October and I'm hoping I don't have to redo them.

    PE1980 I would think it is a good sign that you have to attend the open house

    Congrats to those of you in the next cohort! I saw that some people were wondering how much time they are on campus and in clinicals. You will be on campus almost everyday in the first week or so. After that, you have a 2 hour skills lab 1xweek, health assessment 1xweek for 2 hours, and an exam every other week or so. Clinicals are at one of the Sharp hospitals in SD - could be Grossmont, Chula Vista, Coronado, or Memorial. You will have to go in for a pre-clinical the day before your clinical to research your patient. Then your clinical day is about 8 hours. Then there are community events which could be anywhere around SD. I'm sure Glendale is the same w/ different hospitals.

    Keep this in mind for those of you who are planning to commute. Even though it's on on-line school you have group projects and other campus things that they will spring on you at the last minute.

    Another thing - ask as many questions as you can at open house/orientation and don't take vague answers! I know it seems like alot but just think about all the people that have pulled it off before you! It does settle down and you will get into the groove of things after a few weeks so don't worry.

    Good luck and please post if there are any questions, OK?

    You'll actually physically be practicing/learning how to do physical assessments - head to toe. The professors for this particular lab/class are very sweet and helpful.
