Don't apologize for asking anything, you should be well-prepared for this program if you're admitted! Trust me, you'll wish you asked much more in the future. Patho grades were a combination of exams, homework assignments, and quizzes. Same with pharm but they added in case studies as well. Exams make up the majority of your grade in almost every class, especially the harder ones. Unfortunately, professors seldom offer extra credit (if they do, DO IT! Wether you need it or not at that moment, DO IT). They also don't show any pity. I know a girl who unfortunately lost a member of her immediate family during semester two. She somehow managed to attend the final SOC exam but did poorly and her passing grade was 1.2 points below the requirement. They didn't budge, even with her situation, and she had to repeat the course.
I answered a question about course schedules somewhere around page 18 or 19, but the summers are usually busier than the fall and spring because there's only 12 weeks instead of 16. You'll probably have an activity planned for every weekday during summer. We had one lecture day and two clinical days in fall and spring, with a fourth day reserved for exams and/or meetings. I think they try to give us at least one day off a week but sometimes they just can't because there are so many other nursing students. I'm not sure if they've changed the schedule since the new curriculum rolled out, but I'm sure that it's still manageable! Many people in our cohort have jobs but a few chose to quit after summer. It depends on who you are and how you handle stress and study.
