    Congratulations! I've been to Shenandoah Valley many times since my mother's side of the family is from there- It's so beautiful!

    Have fun celebrating!

    Virginia will be a nice change of pace and scenery for you. As I see you are from West Covina (I used to live in Walnut ages ago when it wasn't so crowded!) I went to MT. SAC a couple of months ago to take care of some business and I couldn't believe the traffic on Grand Ave and Amar!

    Anyway, Congratulations! I second that about SDN! (Even though I haven't been accepted yet!) SDN is very helpful and it is great to share news and concerns about pharmacy school that other people can really relate to. :)

    Same here! Congrats :D I know it's really early, but if you do decide to accept their admissions, what are your living plans? Maybe if you are looking for a roommate and since you're local in SoCal, we can set something up. Let me know. Thanks.

    Last year around this time (or around mid-April), Caz started sending us group emails about relocation with apartment names and numbers and whatnot. The emails also have your future classmates' email addresses in them, so you can contact each other about roommate arrangements. If she hasn't started sending the emails yet, she should in the next few weeks I would think.

    Also, let me know if any of you need help finding a place or need the names of apartments. I'll help out as much as I can. :)

    Hey guys! It's so cool to be talking to people that will be in my classes for the next 4 years! I can't wait! :)
    My boyfriend is spending his first night in our Winchester apartment TONIGHT, and I'll be up to join him in 4 weeks! So exciting!
    FYI, we're at Pemberton Village and it looks pretty nice- and cheaper than Stuart Hill. I think we'll be sneaking into Stuart Hill's pool this summer ;) Don't tell!
    Glycerin- is there a calendar somewhere with the first day of school, orientation, white coat dates etc.? Thanks!
    Congrats again everybody!

    Both Pemberton and Stuart Hill are very nice, newer apartments. Everything in Winchester/Stephens City is close to the school, so don't worry about distance.


    Not yet. You probably won't get that until mid-summer. If the calendar is like last year, then your orientation should be the week of August 21 and first day of classes should be August 28. Yes, orientation WEEK is mandatory :sleep: , so don't skip it! Our white coat ceremony was September 15.

    Since you're moving up here early, don't forget to change your address with Caz and financial aid on main campus.

    Hey all

    I will be attending Shenandoah as well this coming fall, very excited and nervous lol

    What's the easiest way to find housing? I've emailed Caz but she hasn't gotten back to me. It's been a week and usually she gets back in like a couple of hours.....

    I know Caz recently had surgery, so I'm not sure if she's emailing right now. I can find out when emails should be sent out if you guys would like for me to do that. Or, if you want websites or phone number for apartments or townhomes, I can help you get those.

    Just don't move into a place on Kent St. or even Cameron St. Even for a small town, it's not too friendly of an area around those streets.

    Okay so maybe we could all "introduce" ourselves since we'll be in school together for the next few years :) I'll start...
    My name is Jessica. I'm going to be 25 this summer before school starts. I am from Orlando, FL but originally from Lakeland (about an hour or so south of O-town).
    I graduated from UCF in 2004 with a BS in Psychology. I applied to a few places on the east coast and SU was my top choice. :love:
    I'm looking forward to being an outdoorsy girl when I move- do some hiking, camping, rafting! :) Fun times.

    Hi ALL!!
    I'm just accepting ndearwaters invitation to introduce myself! :) My name is Linda and from California. Originally from Los Angeles, but currently living in San Diego. I'll be starting this fall with the rest y'all. I'm probably a bit older than the average first year pharm student at 27, but hey, it's never too late, right? I'm still looking for a place to live also. Let us know how everything goes when you're officially settled in in MAY! Any suggestions in how far in advance we should plan on moving to be settled before the start of the year???? I look forward to meeting you all!!!

    I'm 27. ;)

    I'd start looking now, even if you aren't planning on moving until August. Get on the waiting lists at some of the apartment complexes. May/June is when a lot of the P3s start leaving to go on rotations, so apartments become available then.

    Hiya, I'm Alan, and I will turn 31 just after school starts. I have lived in VA (born in MD) since I was 5 years old, and I've come to really enjoy it here. I live fairly close to the Blue Ridge Parkway in central VA around the Lynchburg area. I love the fact that I am in close proximity to the mountains, beaches, bigger cities, amusement parks, etc.
    I come from a pharmaceutical manufacturing/industrial setting, which is where my interest in pharmacy started to develop. With much effort, I'm now a bit more educated, unemployed, and ready to start at Shenandoah, except I have the small tasks of acquiring fin. aid and an apartment, and renting my house out (after I fix it up just a little :p ). Anyway, that's me in a smaller variety nutshell, more to come in time... Good meeting you all! :)

    ~Alan

    Yep, I like Tori, she's good at what she does, and she rattles my walls from time to time.

    So... what's the best and worst of Shenandoah so far in your opinion? I interviewed at one other school long ago that I have yet to hear from, not that it matters, but that school didn't quite sit well with me. I liked my bit of time at Shenandoah a lot...

    Don't worry Cindy... I finished the FAFSA in Feb. and it shows that it has been processed online but I haven't heard anything from finaid either! Roxbury must have connections on the inside.. :cool: But MD is close to VA so maybe ours are in the mail. :)

    Hey everyone! I've decided to come back to SDN after being away so long and also rejoin the thread that I started! LOL, hey everyone, Heather, Linda, and Jess! And how come you don't have snowboarding with James listed in your outdoors activities? I'm dissapointed! :( Supertech, remember me from the Midwestern Downer's Grove interview? Ha About me, I'm 25 graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Psychobiology, (Yes, I'm sad UCLA lost to the Florida gators :( ), currently working as a scientist in antibody research and development in a small lab in Monrovia, CA. And I too like outdoors activities: tennis, basketball, SNOWBOARDING (I'm looking for p1s to board with me and my roommate Peter (Suprtran), tackling people in the snow... stuff like that. Hope to meet you all in August!

    Ok... so am I the only one who hasn't received my financial aid packet? Maybe I live in the boondocks because it took me a long time to receive my official letter of acceptance too; in fact, Caz was about to send me another one and even extended the deposit deadline for me because I ended up getting the letter like the day before the money was due!
    I guess I'm last on the delivery route... :rolleyes: But I think I'll call on Monday just to check. :)
