I have also applied! Pretty nervous, as I applied last year and didn't get in. Trying not to get my hopes up too high this time! Also applied at TAMU Corpus Christi...hopefully I will get into one of them!
My wife and I just graduated from TTUHSC in August 2012. Over all decent program, of course each program has it flaws. There is A LOT that you have to put in as far as self study goes. Good luck! What town are you in?
