    About the shoe requirements: are crocs allowed as long as there are no holes in them? Do we need shoes right away or not till later in the semester when we start clinical? Thanks!

    @Kate- Sorry I'm late getting back to you- haven't been online in a while. I'm guessing you should have info on them by now though. I seem to recall they were posted online last year, but I'm not totally sure.

    @molls- you need shoes right away because you are required to wear the exact same uniform in lab as you are in clinical. I don't really know about the Crocs. I know they told us all/ mostly white full leather upper, closed heel. From what I know of Crocs, that can be hard to find. Danskos are pretty popular around here, but bottom line, long-wear comfort, support, and traction are the most important features in a good clinical shoe. Might I also suggest you look into a good Littmann stethoscope and a nicer penlight--both of those you get from Vandy in your lab packs are CRAP.

    Holla at me if you have any more questions.

    To the people that were accepted (congrats by the way) did you all have stellar GRE scores? Like I only got 1000 and a 4.0 on the analytical writing. So, I am thinking that I should not even apply. Would anyone mind sharing please? I really want to get in, but I don't see the point in the time and energy if there is no way. Thank you guys for any help you can give me.

    Congrats to all of you who were accepted.

    I'm considering applying for this program, so I'd like to know how the school year is going for all of you so far. Is it different than you expected? Thanks!
