HELLO CAMPUS!!!

Very exciting news that I got recently! Last week I received my class schedule and orientation schedule that I will be attending on March 4, 2013.

I must say, they aren’t kidding when they talk about “owning” you the first year. I will have 11 classes my first trimester (with labs) and around 32 credits in total. My first class at 7:30am (which made me choke on my drink) is Neuro-Anatomy, and is quite the wake-up call as a first class. I can honestly say these aren’t any introductory courses …

Regardless of the courses it’s still very exciting to finally be going into something that I have completely struggled to obtain over the last 4 years. Moreover I obtained a very nice apartment near campus that Palmer currently owns. So check this out! 1000+sq ft. all utilities included except electric for…wait for it…. $550 per month WHAT!!! I must say Palmer is taking very good care of their student body thus far (no complaints).

For the most part I’m now 31 days away from my move to Davenport, IA. And the anticipation is building for this most epic event. At this point the only thing I’m waiting on is my award letter from financial aid, and the verdict on my scholarship. I’m keeping you posted as fast as everything unfolds here in Florida. I’m still working on a video blog to send in, but for some reason I keep making myself laugh every time I get started, and it’s not coming out right. So in the mean time, I’ll just write it out.

Peace off!

Switching gears

Each trimester at Palmer is very different from the last, in that your class schedule has changed, you have new professors and are switching gears and learning entirely new material. For these reasons, I always look forward to another new trimester and getting one step closer to being a chiropractor!

I have really enjoyed being on a trimester schedule at Palmer (on the Davenport Campus; Florida and West are on a quarter system), verus the semester schedule everyone is used to in undergraduate studies, because just about the time you are getting sick of a certain class and ready for a change, the tri is over!

The start dates for entry into Palmer are in March, July and November, and as students we get about 10 days break inbetween each tri and during the summer break we get about 3 weeks. These breaks may not seem very long, but I am always ready to get back in the swing of school and keep the momentum going!

I am so happy with my decision to come to chiropractic school!
