Anyone in college while NWB
« on: September 24, 2005, 04:11:52 AM »
Did anyone attend college after your OATS?  I know my son will be NWB for 6 weeks if he goes thru with the OATS but how will he handle his 2nd semester of college?  I wonder if he should just take online courses next semester?
How did you all handle the tough times?

I am in college and have been through two OATS!! I did do most of my classes online- I still had to go on campus at least once a week to test. The classes that I could not do online my instructors were really understanding and extremely helpful.

If you son were to just explain to them what is going on I am sure the Professors would help him.
