    Yes! UTMB is supposed to send you a supplemental application. You should be getting it soon if not I would call to check on it. I am still really behind with their application process because I had to wait for my fall grades to be posted so I haven't even sent in my NursingCAS application yet. Haha

    Hi Everyone,
    I am new to the thread. I just submitted my application to TWU Dallas for Fall 2013. I can't wait until the wait is officially over. I just finished all my prerequisites this semester. I was told by the Admissions Coordinator this summer that based on previous acceptances into the program, a 3.7 GPA, 3/4 A's on 1st Attempts, and 80% on TEAS V are competitive.

    My stats are:
    GPA Cum: 3.69
    TEAS V: 86.7%
    4/4 A's on 1st Attempts
    Previous Bachelor Degree

    That was funny that I got a letter from UTMB after I posted a comment. Now, I can submit the supplemental application online.

    So, I just got an email back from the new Admissions Coordinator at TWU Dallas. She said that the current stats for the Spring 2013 accepted students were as follows on average: 3.82 GPA and 82% TEAS V. She did not say anything about the Preferences. My GPA is below the average (stupid history and govt). However, she said I am still pretty competitive....still makes me nervous.

    Thanks Cinthia. I am still a bit nervous, I can be a worry wart at times.

    I talked to an advisor on Friday. She looked up someone with very similar stats as mine that was accepted for the Spring, and that person was last on the accepted list! EEk.

    4/4 A's
    GPA: 3.596 (stupid history/government lol)
    TEAS: 84.7

    I think I'm going to take the TEAS V again.

    We can retake the TEAS? How was it, I heard it was harder than the HESI

    You can only retake it if you took it the first time before the September 1 application deadline. Basically, once per application period. They were saying at the information session if you take it again, they take the most recent score, even if it is lower. But if you take it again within the same application period, they are just going to keep your first score. I have not taken the HESI, but from what I hear, that is the easiest of the pre-entrance nursing exams. I did not find the TEAS to be difficult, I think the anxiety of taking it just builds and you make it out to more than it really is. Just study for maybe one to two weeks beforehand, take a deep breathe and you'll be fine.
