    cwalton- yes I did take the micro class online and I didn't have any problems at all. The instructor was great and was there to help anytime needed! It was pricey since you have to buy a lab kit and a microscope in addition to the tuition and book. You also have to have a place to set up an incubation box to grow your microbes and really have to prepare ahead of time for the labs. Over all it was a good experience for me. The main reason I decided on the online version was because it is soooo difficult to get into those classes around where I live and I didn't want to risk not having the prerequisites I needed to start Duke in January.

    So, I had to check my status this morning to make sure it hasn't changed LOL! Had to verify that yesterday wasn't a dream! Bludevil- I hear ya about the financial aid...so hard to get ahold of. I know they must be busy, but the aid is such a big factor for all of us! Twois said they do usually manage to get everyone the help they need, so it helps a little knowing that. None-the-less, that is my new source of anxiety! NM- Hi and congrats! What part of MD are you from? I was born and raised in the Carroll & Baltimore counties area. Haven't been back there in many years though!

    I took Micro online at Ocean County College. It's a little pricey (you need to buy a microscope and lab kit, in addition to the class fees), but super easy to register as a visiting student!! You can fax in the application with unofficial transcripts to enroll! Hopefully they still have openings. Here's the website for info on the course: Microbiology Online at Ocean County College

    Teapot- I live in Raleigh, so I don't know much about the Durham and Chapel Hill areas. I kinda wish I could move near the school for closer access, but the clinical sites are all over the area. So, you may be close to some and far from others. I'm hoping to find some other people in Raleigh who might want to carpool! As far as a guarantee of employment, I don't believe that is the case. However, I do believe that we have a hands up to gaining employment with Duke and if you can get a position...the reimbursement program is phenomenal!

    Spring, I think someone at Duke starts up a facebook group for us, but I'm not sure when. That's what I gathered on other forums.... I can't sit still....I am so excited!

    My last name starts with an H, not sure if that helps. I got my email at 9:13am. Did you check the bottom of your application page? It may be there before the email comes?

    You are quick twois! LOL! That isn't too bad, it's a lot of money so I'm sure we are all wondering how we are gonna pay! And I definitely need to know that before I have to make a decision! I didn't apply for the scholarships I wish I had now and I really wish the deadline wasn't until after we find out if we are accepted. My only pitch I could think of on diversity was that I have AB neg blood, since only 1% of the population has that blood type. Thankfully, I have my military benefits!

    Congrats Twois! That's awesome! How long after acceptance did it take to find out about your financial aid package? Did anyone on here apply for the 10k scholarships?

    elmo!! I did the same thing! I opened up my email about 830 this morning and ALL I saw was DUKE! LOL, looks like it's the info session for people who want to apply for the December deadline this year. But me being the over-analytical person I am, thinks...did they send it cause I didn't make the cut-off for Spring? Ahhhhhhh!!! I've received emails about info sessions before though...
