    Puerto Rico school feedback?

    Truthfully, I think your best bet is to go there in person. As many people have said before, things don't really work over the phone, but when there in person, everyone I encountered was overly friendly and helpful.

    Cahoon, SDSU was my original plan. I'm so glad I decided to go to PR instead... That email made me realized that PR is the correct decision...

    I'll be there in a couple of weeks. How is everyone else doing settling in?

    I was under the impression that after pediatrics we could take the NCLEX as if it were for an ADN, and as far as I understood ADN+NCLEX=RN and BSN+NCLEX=RN. If I'm mistaken It doesn't change much. I just would rather get the NCLEX out of the way ASAP. I'm not Persian, but I do surf and met E a while back.

    I'm looking to arrive the first week in July, so I will be missing orientation. I talked with one of the directors (name started with Y) from the nursing program, and she told me she would sit down with me and tell me what I missed and help me register for classes then. Besides that the only thing she said I needed to take care of before coming out was my Hep B vaccine. I just need one more shot for that. I have a list of potential places I have found so far. I also have a cheap pickup truck lined up to buy when I arrive.

    I'm pretty sure they are confusing Puerto Rico with Costa Rica.

    Good luck. My undergraduate GPA is 3.17 (I swear I thought it was higher) and they let me in just fine. Do you know when and how we register for classes that begin in August? Is it online?

    So I received my letter of admission in the mail... its mentions that there is a "counseling and registration activity for transfer student that will be held on Saurday, May 22 at 8am". I tried calling the number it gives if one cannot attend, with no avail. Does anyone know about this meeting? My main concern is being able to register for classes. Does anyone know how or when this happens??? Well in relieved about the acceptance letter, since now I can get the ball rolling on my loans, but I'm kinda confused about what my next step is at this point... Oh and my plan is to head to PR in July giving myself a month to situate myself before classes begin. And regarding those people talking about study groups, the girl I spoke to that finished the program told me not to expect too much of a challenge from the classes, and that it is important to begin studying for the NCLEX from the get go, because just passing the classes will not suffice. She passed the boards on the first try in the minimum time.

    I have talked to two different students who graduated and they said for sure 2 years if you have a BA already.

    I do Bikram yoga, and I couldn't find any info on there being a studio here. Can you post link to confirm that? Thanks.

    At&t worked better for me in PR than it did back home.

    I'm in San Diego right next to the beach. I surf a lot. :)

    Just curious, has anyone received their acceptance letter yet? I'll be down there in July. Maybe studio, maybe room ate, but I need to live near the beach... :)

    Ok cool. Did you do this? Oh and lastly how much total did the program cost (not including books)? Thanks again. You have saved all of us hours of time and stress. :)
