I am glad you brought it up. I had no idea - totally didn't read the insurance section b/c I didn't think it concerned me. If I can't get around it, I guess I can't get around it. We have an excellent plan and I will try to dispute it. The good news is that 2K fee is an annual fee, and you can opt to pay it by semester for smaller payments.

Here is a link with last years waiver to show what you have to supply. Had no issues at my old university - I hate pointless hoops.

It's all so typical isn't it!!! Glad I'm not alone in this. All these additional fees just make me crazy not to mention poor.:eek:

Yes as if NS wasn't costly enough - yikes! Hopefully we can reason with them and move beyond this hurdle... and be a little less poor.

:idea:

Well, this might not be true for CU, but my NS had all sorts of requirements for insurance on paper, but in the end all I had to do to refuse the school plan was to send them a copy of my insurance card... which ironically was for a defunct plan (I had just switched plans and not gotten my new card from the new company yet).

latest on insurance...I called yesterday and actually talked to a person. If you have a GROUP plan (which I have) they will consider it even with a $1500 deductible, But I had to write a Letter of Appeal including my policy, etc. etc. I'm off to the Post Office now to put it in the mail, definately worth the time to save $3000. I'll see what happens. I really didn't mean to complain about all of this as I'm more than delighted to be accepted but I had one week to get everything done. This came so quick I didn't have time to "research" anything. Again thanks for listening.

That is good news! Would you mind pm-ing me with info about the letter of appeal? Such as is there a form to follow and who to call...etc. I would appreciate your input, I am thinking our plan should be more than adequate for the school's purpose.

lyndx

are you in the accelerate or traditional program? i am going to their traditional program in june, just want to know how stressful it is, and whether it's doable to work full time while going to school. thanks!

i am in the traditional program. i also came in with a lower gpa (3.1 i think). anyway, i personally am not working right now, but i think part time work is do-able, as you get further into the semester and know what to expect. however, at first, it is a lot of information and it can be quite overwhelming....as of right now, i can't think of anyone specifically that is working full-time. most students who were emt's or cna's are working 1 shift/week, with a couple who do 2 shifts on weeks with less content.

Does anyone have stats on how many applicants they get for the accelerated program, and how many acceptances they give out?
