    Seems like it is for fall 2017. This is the third time I apply and hopefull I get in this time. Fingers crossed
    Hey Sarah ! Can you tell me what happened your first try ? I know we were both waitlisted for the summer program. Just trying to see if there is a pattern for waitlisters getting in the application period after they've been denied from the waitlist.

    I am thinking that maybe this person is talking about University of Utah. I looked them up and their nursing school is called U Health - so maybe Jessie-lee just popped up on the wrong school's page? I'm pretty sure no notifications have gone out yet. I'm really thinking it'll be next Friday - and by thinking I mean hoping.
    I didn't want to say trolling, but I did think that maybe this didn't apply to us. I immediately checked my mail, email, and UTHealth portal, and nothing. Be still my fast beating heart. Not today, heart. Not today.

    got it. Hoping it doesn't pass next Friday that we get notifications is towards the end of the month already 😁

    Hey, so the first time applied was for Spring 2017 and I was notified on November 15, 2016 at 5:35 pm by email that I was denied.LOL. And for the summer I got waitlisted and on May 2 they emailed me saying they had filled all the spots. There was a huge mix-up with my application when I applied for the fall. I called a month after applying for the fall to check the status and they tell me that they don't have an application for fall. So I panicked and cried , I told them I have the receipt stating I applied and paid for that semester. It took them two weeks to get back with me and they still couldn't find my application. All they found was the recipet but no application. Thank god they used my summer application and transferred it to the fall.so hopefully I get in this time, I feel like I wasted so much time. It is what it is

    Ummm hmmm. They said that they had about 1100 applicants for the semester and filled just over 100 spots. Super discouraging. Haha.
    The other thing had to do with withdrawals. I don't know if this applies to any of ya'll but she said if you had more than 6 withdrawals within your college career (or something to that effect) then they wont accept your application. I have been in school for 10 years and have taken SO many classes. I've withdrawn out of 8 that whole time. But I guess I was grandfathered into that whole "you can only drop 6 classes in your academic career" law. So I emailed her to get clarity on that. Ummm, what else.
    OH! You can only take the HESI twice. Doesn't matter if its for another institution you get two attempts and two attempts only. Also, HESI scores expire after two years. They also take ONLY the most recent HESI score. If you did better on your first try, doesn't matter. They are taking your most recent one.
    There is SO many stressful aspects to this application process. LOL.

    Never heard about the drop rule...that seems to be something they should list on their criteria so people don't waste time or money applying. Did they tell you since it's been 10 years you are ok? I hope so since I've definitely dropped more than 6, but they were all done nearly 20 years ago. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I swear at the Summer info session they discussed the HESI and said you could only take it twice with their school code. I remember her saying if you took it at HCC for instance, do not send those scores to them if you wanted to re-take it with them so you'd have two chances. I've been at this for well over a year and I am astonished at the mixed information that comes out of this school. You can call and talk to someone and then at the info session they may say something totally different.

    Hey Brandon! Quick question. Were you just straight up denied to UT Health or were you waitlisted and then denied? Cause if you were waitlisted that wouldn't make sense about the W's. They wouldn't have planned to possibly let you in if you had too many W's. And about the HESI. They said this was a relatively new thing. Because one of the other admissions people asked the person and she said this rule about the HESI was more recent. What I don't understand is, if you're only allowed to take it twice and it expires after two years what happens if you wanna try to get in again after four years? You just can't? That seems kinda weird.

    This is crazy. Is the first time I here about you only been able to take Hesi twice it doesn't state on website . Like HBU it says only twice and gave to pass all sections with 80 . So at least we knew only 2 chances . Oh god . And so many applicants that's a scary number

    Hey jdskaggs88! Thanks for the great info! I'm super nervous about the HESI, because I've taken it three times, two for another school and once under UTHealth's. Makes me so nervous because I did better on UTHealth's HESI than I did for the other two. I hope we can clear up the ambiguity going around the application process!
