Here is my .........
I am also working on my pre-req and have met several people in my classes that are also pre-nursing...some are genuine and some are extrememly competitive.
The ones that are competitive,in a bad way, I stay away from. I don't need the distraction of worrying how the other person is doing, that is not my business, nor do I share my grades with them, unless they ask.
I have learned over the years, that you can only control your actions.
Do not get involved in all the drama, only focus on your journey!
I am hoping to make some good friends in all this so we can support each other, that is what it is all about, or should be anyway......
Do the best that you can and the rest will fall into place! There is no use to worry about how many people are competing for the same spot, you can not do anything about that. Things will change over the course of the semester and the students that are not in it for the right reasons will probably not make it anyway!
