Yes they are in the program, but if you already took them you would not have to during the program. It would be easier and better for you if you took them before you entered the program, trust me! The school is very nice, they have a new building for it and a new lab. The students are all very nice, we all get along. After clinical we would sometimes go out for lunch. We are very close and depend on each other to get through the program, knowing people helps you a lot in studying. There are some good teachers and some I do not care for. Some teachers seem a little unorganized. But they completely re did the program and new building and new lab, takes some getting used to I guess. I've never had any problems with anyone or the school at all. I've never had anyone act negative or mean towards me. So far my experience has been good. I am the only person I knew to ever go to the school as well! haha. I live on the NW side of town so it's a bit of a drive for me and with traffic. I also went to Galen first, that school is very expensive, they quoted it would cost me $18,000 to go there. St. Phillips is a little under $6,000. I had my clinical this past semester at a hospital and there was Galen students there the last few weeks. They were okay, one of them was kind of rude towards everyone. They seemed to be doing the same sorts of things as us. I talked with one student from there who I asked about the cost of Galen. He said that yeah, they quoted him around that price too, but he got grants, scholarships
, and loans to cover most of it. But said he still owed $8,000. Grants and scholarships cover all my tuition costs at St. Phillips. I took out some loans to live on while I do the program, because I have no time to have a job. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions!
