I got my letter!

Orientation is Tuesday, July 11th 8am-3pm! HOW EXCITING IS THAT, PEOPLE? For me, very. I ripped that package open before I could even reach the front door from the mailbox. My acceptance letter is now in a protector sheet in a binder. I may frame it:)
This is what my letter says *sips some water**clears throat*

Ooh, I remember how excited I was for orientation! You're going to have a great time.

That's interesting that you'll be at one facility for the whole pre-RN clinical experience. We rotate through different hospitals each semester so that we get a variety of experiences to different atmospheres and styles.
