    Here is the brief version: Books - depends on what you buy and where from. Your required list of books is HUGE, most of which you won't need or use. However, they do make great door stops and...

    A high GPA? I would say so. It isn't easy, but I have never posted a "C" on my transcript (personal goal). There are people that make deans list (3.5+) each semester, and occasional 4.0s. There...

    Honestly - I don't see a preference anywhere. I have worked with nurses from TWU, UT, Lamar, out of state and out of country. Some hospitals and floors seem to have more nurses from a particular...

    Every admitted class is about 100 people, usually a few don't show up so I would guess the starting class is around 95 or so. All of your lectures will be as a single group (~100 students) then your...

    I believe you should be ok, as long as you can show you are on track. Fax whatever you have as soon as you can and re-fax your new records when you have updates (2nd booster, positive titer,...

    If you show immunity then you are fine, no need for your shot records. In fact, I got my titers before they started requiring them (we had options for records or titers last year) simply because I...

    That would be great! I will see if I can get him in touch with someone from campus. I know they have had UT Health come in before, so I don't see why this would be any different.
