Happy Halloween

Jackolantern

As an adult I still like Halloween - carving pumpkins and dressing up or seeing scary movies - it's all fun! This year I didn't get to carve a pumpkin but I did watch a scary movie and hang out with friends. It was much needed after an aggravating Friday.  

I am two trimesters from graduating so I decided to take a look at my credits to see if everything was kosher and to see what classes I still needed to take; I would rather be safe then sorry.  

I started in the Acupuncture program when it was transitioning from the first director to the previous dean, Dr. Kwon. Dr. Kwon had made some changes to the program like adding some science classes and changing credit numbers around since the first rendition when I started. Needless to say I was a little irked when I discovered I might have to do independent study to make up for some missed biomedical classes. The only reason it really irked me was because I have taken every class and even two extra classes according to the bulletin I started with. After taking a few breaths, I then decided to talk to the current assistant dean, Dr. Yurasek. He advised me to set up an appointment with him and Dr. Kwon to discuss my transcripts so we could iron everything out.  

I received my bachelor's from National, and I believe National is an excellent school with an excellent philosophy. The professors are great and they stay up to date on the changes in health care. This said, every school has its glitches and as adults and students we must be accountable for ourselves. I have learned as a student you must also keep excellent records of every document you receive from your school, especially if it involves financial aid and the money you are borrowing.

Well, that's my advice for all the future students - keep track of all documents, study hard and stay on top of your game, and you will do great!
