I had 85 points when I applied. The application period for spring 2017 was very competitive during the time. It's not always like that though, so don't worry. I purchased the husky rolling tool bag from Home Depot. If you sign up for the SMS alerts regarding sales you will receive a five dollar off coupon which I used. I would not recommend the 14 inch because you cannot fit much in there. If you typically don't bring much to campus, the 14 inch might be just right for you. However, keep in mind that nursing school changes a lot of habits so you might find yourself bringing much more than expected to campus. I would still purchase a rolling bag even if you have a laptop because you will need to bring binders, notebooks, other supplies, and possibly other books that aren't in ebook format. Wearing a backpack with all these items can hurt your back. Coursepoints offer the ebook online with the content so do not purchase the book AND coursepoints, it will be a waste. For example, if you are required to purchase fundamental nursing coursepoints, do not purchase a fundamentals textbook because the textbook will be available online with your coursepoints.
