Ok, I know you are out there... So where are all my classmates for August 2008?

Kudos to you ppl coming cross the country to flippin West Virginia. I live about an hour and a half away from Charleston in Ohio, so I've lived with the joys of this region all my life. Prepare to be bored out of your skull. I guess, on the bright side, you'll have a lot of study time! ha.
ya...well, I don't really do much here in Florida, I don't go to the beach or anything, and stay away from the nightlife, except on Wednesdays, lol. So Charleston will be fine. I have timeshare in the Poconos, in Pennsylvania, and that's calm and relaxing, and that's what I like to be in.My dad was actually born and raised in West Virginia and my grandparents live 2 1/2 hours away from Charleston. I spend all of my vacations there so besides being 8 hours from home, it will not be that big of an adjustment.
well I didn't get a raise yet...I am currently making more than a P1 so I hear I may not get one regardless. If that is the case, that is pretty dumb. But I did get my name tag that says intern and I do transfers and take new ones from doctors...but I used to do that occassionally as a tech since the pharmacists trust me oooo sooo much lol.Yeah...that's a major bummer....but on the brighter side.... you get to be paid as an intern already?! that's awesome...i can't get internship pay until the day i start pharmacy classes. I'm sure everything will work itself out in the end.
So it is more of a "business casual" dress code then.Yes, the school requires a "professional" dress code- i think i heard dr. easton say this basically means no flip-flops or tennis shoes, no jeans/cargo/sweat pants, no t-shirts. So i would say for guys, a polo and khakis is acceptable.....for girls dress pants and shirts and/or dresses- i think sandals are ok as long as they are nice/dressy...
lol guess no fake blondes, go back to brunette, it's not allowed, lol. Guess I'll be wearing long sleeve shirts everyday, tattoos are not allowed. Sigh. But that's if I get my alternate list call. I still can't believe they accepted me then alternate listed me. :Sighs again:Looks like I should have held off posting, just got the "professional attire" mailing. For those wanting to shop immediately here's an abbreviated listing.
guys: dress or polo shirt (w/ collar) slacks (dress or khakis) socks and shoes
ties not required (strongly recommended for formal events)
sandals are not appropriate
gals: skirt and blouse, dress slacks (or khakis) and blouse, basic dress or suit and shoes. hosiery not req (strong recommended for formal events) accessories and footware must be tasteful and professional.
at no time are the following allowed:
hats; flipflops/sandals/tennis shoes; sweat suits; shorts/capri pants' tank tops or athletic t-shirts; holes/cuts in clothing; denim clothing; spandex, leggins, tight fitting stretch pants; any revealing clothing that exposes the chest or midriff
hair: neatly combed, clean, not dyed unnatural color.
skin: no visible piercings(other than earrings) nor tattoos
I believe they mean, a hair color that doesn't occur naturally on people... ie no hunter blaze orange or green etclol guess no fake blondes, go back to brunette, it's not allowed, lol. Guess I'll be wearing long sleeve shirts everyday, tattoos are not allowed. Sigh. But that's if I get my alternate list call. I still can't believe they accepted me then alternate listed me. :Sighs again:
I'm not sure...I will ask...my mom bought me a new one for xmas, haven't even opened it. I'll email Mrs. Campbell now.In the hope that I will get a mailing on it in a couple days
Anyone know anything (ie more than what was covered at the interview) about the laptop program? I presume there's no provision/possibility to select our own. (which, unless there is on site servicing that I'm not aware of, I fail to see any reason to restrict)
