    How does everyone else feel about their interview/essay at CCC? I'd be curious to see everyone's opinion of the process.

    prfoodie: I enjoyed the personal aspect of having an actual interview as opposed to the essay only approach that PCC takes. I appreciate that CCC takes the time to put a name, face, and personality to our applications. How did I do? Not sure (I think well?) but I do know I enjoyed the process. If I am so lucky to get accepted to both PCC and CCC, it may be a harder decision between the two than I thought!

    What is everyone doing to pass the time these next couple weeks? I am reviewing my A&P and pulled out my medical terminology book from a few terms ago. Kind of liking doing crossword puzzles, keeps my mind active... and it can't hurt to brush up on some of it, right?

    Poppyanddelia- I am finishing my bachelors in sociology this term at PSU but it has been almost three years sense I took my prereqs so I am doing the same! I pulled out my old A&P and Micro books, my fiance is a paramedic so I am investigating some of his pathophysiology and pharmacology books. It is very different from nursing in most ways but there is a lot of crossover!

    In regards to the essay, I feel that I did fairly well. I much prefer the interview process though- it is so much more personal and gives us a chance to get to know them as well. Plus I like the overall vibe- kinda fun! How well did mine go?? Well, not sure, but I feel I did okay. I had lots to say and was quick responding, but I think my nerves kept my bright'n'shiny personality from coming out... super nervous!

    In the meantime, I'm pulling out my books as well- A&P and Med Terminology...... and surfing this site repeatedly, lol!
