Hi guys!! I'm currently in the ABS program. I know how I was feeling at this point last year, so let me fill you in a bit... there ARE people in my cohort with cumulative GPA's below 3.0, but as long as you show improvement in your prereq's (from your previous degree), that's ok. Summer session is a full time job. You have 12 weeks to your "junior year", one professor calls it nursing boot camp. It's stressful, but it goes fast. You have to be dedicated to the program, I wouldn't suggest working. If you stay focused and make it your #1, you'll be fine. So far, only one person has failed out. Another dropped for medical reasons. This semester has been pretty difficult, so I'm interested to see how many we lose. I hope no one. Pace does slow down in the fall, but don't take it for granted. You have more time, but it's more detailed info and it's a lot to grasp. It's a hard program, but it is doable. I'll try to keep an eye on this thread. If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you.
