The DardenPortal is ever changing with constant new messages from various staff members, updates to admitted student events, friend requests and of course, information you need to know before matriculation. I was excited to see that the Pre-Enrollment Modules were posted yesterday. The last thing I want is to scramble to finish them in Europe or when I return from the big adventure. Luckily, I shouldn't have to worry. There is downloadable text, which I skipped initially. Then there are three tests you must complete and pass (80% is passing) by August 18th. Each test may be taken as many times as you want, no time limit, open book/open notes. I thought I'd try my luck on the accounting exam as I was indeed an accounting/finance major. Only difficulty, this is MANAGERIAL accounting, not financial. The questions talk more in theory and perception than hard data. Needless to say, I'm happy to report, with a few google searches and some previous knowledge, I passed. Granted, I will likely still read the material provided just to make sure I'm on the same page as everyone else. Today I will tackle Business Math and Statistics as well as Fundamentals and Economics.
On another note, this summer's plans are slowly developing. I booked a Mediterranean cruise yesterday for the middle of my trip to Europe. 12 nights, 7 cities and I won't have to move my stuff! WOO HOO! :D Italy, Greece and Turkey, here I come. My date will be my brother, though I'm still worried about that. He can have a temper and gets crabby when he hasn't slept enough. Maybe I can find a female to entertain him. :)
