Anyone starting BSN program @ UTMB Fall 2004???

  1. Hi! I am wondering if there's anyone here who will be starting the BSN program at UTMB in Fall 2004. If so, perhaps we can correspond before we get there.

    Thanks,
    Tara

    HI guys im still trying to decide what nursing school to go to. Im interested with UTMB it seems like a nice school. With TWU i know they only look at GPA's and not anything else i didnt think that was fair i was wondering if UTMB is the same. Also, what is the GPA that someone needs to have to get in this school? And what school did you guys transfer from. Thank you

    For the 2004 class, with a science GPA of 3.4 and a preReq. GPA of 3.5.
    I interviewed at UTHSC. Result...declined.
    I was accepted into UTMB for the Fall
    I was also accepted into the accelerated BSN program at TWU.
    Obviously I did what any rational man would have done....I accepted the shorter more intense, hell on fire, wish I had thought about it longer, just hold on it'll be over soon ,damn did we just go through an entire usually semester long course in one week , program at TWU. To be fair, UTHSC and UTMB also have this same accelerated program. A young lady that I took API and II with was accepted into the accelerated program at UTHSC. I hope she's hanging in there.
    I have an undergraduate Biology from UT Austin (Hook'em) where I took most of my prereq.'s and I finished up the rest at Houston Community College. GPA IS THE QUALIFIER.......I say again(and it is perhaps unfortunate) GPA is the qualifier. The higher, the better. The school have something that everybody wants and they feel it importnat to pick / choose the very best students who they feel will a.) complete the program, b.)stay in the profession and treat it as a career and not just a hobby...ie work a few years, get married and then bail out. and c.)understand the implications and responsibility that comes along with this job. Nurses are the #1 trusted profession in the States. There is a lot riding on the shoulders of an accepted student. So they start at grades and then work their way down. Its no different than any other professional school. Guess which school has the HIGHEST GPA requirement....PA(physicians assist) school/programs. Heck your gpa can be lower if you apply for Medical School than it can be for acceptance into PA school...ain't that a kick in the pants.
