I started college classes last week through the worker’s retraining program. I was hoping to do something like radiology but after meeting with the advisor I had to readjust my plan. I am an A-B student but with radiology I needed to be an A student. She provided me with the stats for the last 3 years and the number of people applying for radiology has increase as had the GPA. 67 people applied last year (Fall 2014) and only 20 were accepted into the program with the lowest GPA of 3.98. I asked her what happened to all those students that worked on their pre-requisites and didn’t get accepted into the program! She said they help them with applying to other college, some as far as Spokane, WA. That was mind boggling and sad. I’m shooting for HIT; health information technology. It’s working in the medical field but not as an attending staff–it’s a support staff–starting income range is around $50/yr.
It is what it is.
I also got hired for a part time job working nights cleaning offices. I would prefer to do mindless work at this time because I don’t want to think when I am tired. It also works around my classes. My hire date is today but my start date will be sometime next week. I’m fighting a nasty sinus & chest cold so not working right now is fine with me. I think I got this nasty virus from the person that interviewed me!
More about my classes later. I’m tired after finishing my Business Math 110 homework. Sitting in this recliner with the chills, sore throat, and headache–reading book online to finish the work. Tired. :/
BTW–the blah in the title is–yup the work. Did you think I’d say the sinus & chest cold?! God no! I can handle this nastiness but I would prefer to get unemployment while I’m in school but as mentioned earlier: it is what it is.
