    Montgomery College, how long?

    Lol! You're crackin' me up, Nikki. Yeah, Beth was saying how I'm going to have to buy some white underwear, etc, etc. Yuck, yuck, yuck. What could we wear underneath the pants so they're not so see through? Long johns? Leotards? Biker shorts? And the shoes???? Oh, man. I gotta have something that looks cool. Maybe some all-white Chuck Taylor's or Puma's.

    Nikki-I forgot to reply to your question about finding a place in MC. We haven't had any luck so far, but we're continuing to look, in the hopes that something will come up. I know the chances are slim that we'll find a place that will take our animals, but you never know. If not, I'm resigned to staying where we are and just paying the out-of-state tuition. It kills me that I'm less than a mile away from the MD/Montgomery County line, but I'm still considered out-of-state. If this were my first degree, I could get a grant from DC to cover the difference btwn in-county tuition and out-of-state tuition.

    Oh, okay. I was just there at the Starbucks last week buying dog beds from a guy on Craigslist. At the information session last spring, they made a big deal about the uniforms being all white because it's easier for the preceptors/whatever they're called, to spot you at the clinical sites. I don't know if that's true, but I guess we have to suck it up, regardless.

    Is anyone else concerned about the all white uniforms we'll have to wear during clinicals? I'm already pale, so unless I start spray tanning, I'm going to look like Casper the ghost. I swear I'm dreading the uniform more than anything else. Seriously.

    Andrea-You said you're ten minutes away from MC? Where do you live? I live in NW DC, just across the DC/MD line, in Brightwood.

    Hey ladies, I faxed my letter over on Tue and also dropped it in the mail today. It's sometimes hard to find parking over there, so I thought I'd better just get it in the mail.

    Awww, that's so adorable. I'll have to start using that phrase. Too cute. I'm going to hand deliver mine as well, just in case. When I was driving down North Capitol Street, after I got my letter, I saw a MedStar helicopter fly by and thought, "that could be me someday". I can do anything I want now. Become a flight nurse, a nurse practitioner, a CRNA...the options are endless. I'm thrilled. Marissa

    Hey ladies, Congrats to all of you. I live in an apartment building, so my certified notice was in our mailbox Sat. afternoon, well after the post office closed. I will pick it up first thing Tuesday morning then post the good news here. I haven't been checking my email for the last day or so. I'm sorry that I missed your posts, but I'm very happy for everyone and I hope to join you in your celebrations very, very soon. :) Marissa

    I'm over it. I was relaxed before all of this back and forth from the admissions office and nursing department about when the letters would be sent out. Sometimes it's better to just not think about it. When it arrives, it arrives. It's completely out of our hands, unfortunately.

    Okay, thanks Kristian.

    I haven't looked at the handbook, but I have the handouts from the orientation I went to last spring. I'll check the handbook, though, just in case they've made any changes. Thanks for the info.

    They sound woefully incompetent. Thanks again for staying on top of them, Nikki.
