OK - I added you to roll call

Re: Cost of living - that's a pretty broad subject... are you wondering about housing, price of gas, etc. or more specific stuff like cost of utilities, tax percentages, etc?

Are you living in North Carolina now? Just wondering...

Samford is a private school in Birmingham, AL. My essay topic was directed towards my opinion on student athletes. We drew the topics at random so everyone gets something different.

I was accepted to Samford a month ago. I'm not from Birmingham so I don't know anyone else who was accepted. I was wondering if anyone was looking for a roommate. I haven't picked an apartment yet. Let me know if you would be interested in getting to know one another to see if we would match as roommates. Thanks

I received my acceptance letter also from Samford on 4/9/08. I still have to complete a physical education course consisting of two hours over the summer term. Can anyone tell me if the P.E. course must actually be something physical like a sport or a dancing class, or would a health course or a written P.E. course be acceptable? Who can I contact at Samford to ask?

Do you happen to know any decent apartments near Samford? I've done a google search but you can only know so much from pictures. Also, its kind of a weird question but I'm curious if there are any indoor public pools in the area. I do triathlons and I figure all Ill be doing is training and studying. Any info would be much appreciated.

I am excited to meet everyone this fall, it's going to be great! When did everyone interview for Samford? Just wondering if I have met anyone yet. I interviewed on March 3rd at 10:00 am. Has anyone heard about the Medical Terminology book we need to study for orientation?

I just recieved a letter from Samford regarding the Med Term book. Its two pages. One page asking for your summer contact information and the other states you will be tested on medical term. You can purchase the book through SU for $55.00 or by another means. Either way, you have to return the letter with your preference. I dont think I will purchase the book through SU. I'm guessing we can purchase the book cheaper through Amazon.

The book is: Unlocking Medical Terminology by Bruce Wingerd

I interviewed Feb 4th. The day after Superbowl. I'm glad I got accepted. Practicing interview questions during the Superbowl at a hotel by myself was not that fun. At least it was worth it. ha!!

Hey everyone! I will also be attending Samford in the fall! Can't wait to meet everyone!

As far as living, there are tons of options. There's another thread on here about apartments around Samford that I posted on. When I interviewed I looked at about 6 places. Check out apartmentfinder.com or just PM me with some questions!

JazziePharm - I just wrote you back. Call and talk to Bruce or Jon. They are both really helpful!

About the pools Chelu, Samford recently built a new fitness center so I'm guessing there might be a pool there..? Not sure though.

Like Chelu said, you should get something in the mail about the book. I went ahead and ordered it from them.

Oh.. and I interview Feb 8 and was accepted 2 weeks later!

For everyone who will be attending next year.. do you all have Facebook? I know that Jon Parker has created a FB group for the class of 2012. There's 43 people in the group as of now. I'm not sure how he's going about tracking everyone down on facebook though. I didn't know if anyone else was in the group besides me!!

Hey! Maybe if you search for MSOP Class of 2012 and look under the groups.. you might could request to join. That should send the request to Mr. Parker. Maybe since you're new he missed you. Welcome to Facebook :) haha
