Questions are good! I'll start from the top.
Your TEAS score is excellent and your GPA is pretty good too. For reference, I came out of my first Batchelor's with a 3.11. I scored all As for my prereqs and got a 91.3 on my TEAS. That, plus 75 volunteer hours at an ER and my interview, got me in. Plenty of my cohort didn't have any volunteer hours, however, but it always helps.
I'm not sure exactly how many applied for this cycle but they accepted 30. Two dropped out in the first week due to personal reasons leaving us with 28 now. I know in previous cohorts the ratio has been about 120 applicants and 30 acceptees. For us, they only invited 38 to the interviewing process, meaning you had a REALLY good shot of getting in just by sitting down for the one on one.
The program so far has been pretty tough, purely because of how much they throw at you in a short period of time. Personally, I find the material is not that difficult. But managing 19 credits including clinicals can be pretty demanding. Our first semester consisted of two absolutely packed lecture days from like 8am to 4 or 5pm, and one clinical day from 7am-2pm. This semester it's two separate lecture days that let out pretty early and three clinicals from 7am-3pm.
Honestly, if I were you and I got in, Id take the last few weeks/months to chill out big time, get my personal life in order, spend time with family/friends and get ready to say "No" to them a lot for the next year lol. Your cohort is ABSOLUTELY your best resource for help. They will remind you about deadlines, help you out with assignments, answer your questions and motivate you when you are down. This is why it really pays to be nice to the people you meet on interview day!! They are your extended family for better or worse for the next 12 months.
As for the textbook question, if you get in feel free to private message me and I'll see if I can hook you up if the textbooks are t
