    Regarding the orientation, you don't have to attend!! and you try to register online for ALL classes all you need to do in go to interweb and you will need ur ID which if you got an acceptance letter it should be on the, the password is ur date of birth. We have been able to register online even for the nursing classes you can try but if not they will let you register even the first day of school.

    @ClemsonTiger. You will DEFINITELY get into the program and you might not get a hold of anyone by June 1st. As far as i know when i applied last August I was the only one that got an acceptance letter everyone that i have talked to got there's when they arrived the last week of June to register. Do not worry about getting a letter or talking to someone on the phone if they have you in the system all you need to do is when you come bring copies of your required information (ie SS card, transcripts, you will also need a record of your immunizations for clinical).

    @pearlgirl I live in the Centro Medico area, when i first got here i didn't know that the methadone clinic was next door!! But if you dont mess with anybody nobody messes with you. I would recommend that you sign a lease for 6 months bc most likely you will find a better place later on. I have not had any issues living here, one of my friends walks me home when i do not have a ride. The main reason i picked this house was bc it is two blocks from the train station, i knew a girl living here and its one station away from Cupey which is were you can hope on the school trolley (its free and runs Monday-Friday) for those like me that do not have a car it is very convenient. I would recommend living in an area near a train station if you do not have a car. Some classmates are leaving in June and might be selling there car if anybody is interested i can find out more details. I feel all the anxiety you guys are having but you will meet friends here, we are all on the same boat. I'm taking Pediatrics in June so ill be available to give you a tour of the school. Trust me when i say DO NOT worry about getting into a class or being here on August 1st (first day of class) last august we didn't even have an instructor for one our classes!! and the first week of school you will most likely meet for about one or two hours each class.

    If you go to the student services office or talk with "E" there is a list of student housing available which makes it easy to find a cheap place. Also in case some of you do not know there is a house at the school that you can stay at for $30 a night in case you have not found anything by the time you get here.

    Well......Jeb found a place about 5 houses up from where i am staying its a student housing house he's renting one room. Unfortunately the last room available in that house. But if you want we can check out a place that is about 2 streets down from us I can call and see if they have anymore rooms available. I have the instructor tomorrow so i will inform her she doesn't use blackboard. Oh, and by the way you haven't missed anything this week!!
