I have a few questions about the acupuncture program. I did read that classes are most weekends and one evening a week during year one, and that year three is a year-round schedule. Is year two the same as year one, with most weekends and one evening with the scheduled breaks? If not, what is the schedule like for year two? Also, I know that three letters of reference are requested for application. I did receive the application form and information in the mail already. Is there any specific form that has to be used for the letters of recommendation, or can my references just write their own letter any way they choose? Finally, are there any upcoming open houses on a weekend? Thank you in advance for this information.
