I was curious of the admission process. Once you accept an offer, when exactly do they do your fingerprints, drug tests, etc?
Depends on the school. I never had to do any of that. I've only now needed to do a drug test as the hospital I'm doing my clinical rotation at requires it.

I had to get my fingerprints rolled a month before starting classes. No drug test, but I will need one before I start my full time affiliation rotation.

My school gave me a specific deadline by when I needed things completed by. I needed a background check and a physical done like a month before school started. But it really depends on the program you are in! They will tell you exactly what you do and dont need.
