    Yeah, that's exactly why I'm glad I'm taking Chem before the teas-v, because I'm worried about that section the most I think, lol. I'll be applying to the Dallas campus. You?
    Same here, Dallas. I didn't know chem was on the teas. Good thing I'm taking it this semester also. Everything will be fresh. I'm excited for next spring to roll around. it'll be here before we know it. At least we have classes to keep us busy.

    Does anyone know if we can mail official transcripts that we have? I ordered a few extra transcripts and keep them on hand so when I'm ready to apply I don't have to wait for the colleges to send them to twu. I was going to put all the letters in one big envelope and send them together.
    I saw on twu's website "Printed transcripts must be sent to TWU directly from the institution or delivered personally in a sealed envelope from the institution. " so I just wanted to confirm

    You are able to mail transcripts into TWU. I am applying to the Houston campus and they allowed me to send mine in via mail even though they were addressed to me! Just make sure that the official seal is on the envelope and that they are not opened! I hope this helps!

    Yes It does, thank you for the confirmation!

    HI!
    I will be applying for the spring 2013 at the Dallas campus, I'm a bit nervous, time is flying by so quickly. This semester of spring 2012 I'm taking AP 1 and chemistry. After this semester I will only have AP 2 left and I'm hoping to take my TEAS-V entrance probably around early or mid july-just whenever I'm done with AP 2. I've heard so many different things from different people about the selection process, just a bit overwhelmed noww :uhoh21:. I'm just hoping to do well on my TEAS test. There are so many study guides out there and different people who study with diff. study guides all score differently. But anyways im glad you started this forum early, i'm sure as time comes near we all will have many questions. I don't know how hard it is to get in, I've heard GPAs from 4.0 to 3.7 to even 3.0 get in and even scores of TEAS of 64's get in. AHH this is so crazy!! I Just wish they would stick to one criteria!! :icon_roll Anyways good luck to you for this semester. hope you do well!!

    Is this forum for people who are applying during the Spring 2013 application period or for people who are applying during the Fall 2012 period hoping to get into the nursing program of Spring 2013? *Confusing*

    It's for students who are applying during the Fall 2012, hoping to get into the nursing program of Spring 2013.

    Hello all,
    I'm planning to apply to TWU-Houston spring 2013 too. I finished all my pre reqs at hcc last semester. I tried applying for Prairie View for this Fall 2012, but got disqualified. To those that are trying to apply to PV make sure to read the instructions carefully and be on top of your stuff because they are very messy. I'm currently studying for TEAS V right now, I will be taking it in a few weeks. I'm also trying to get into Coleman this Fall so I could at least get Pharmacology out of the way. And i'm going to all to other nursing schools around Houston. Good luck to all future nurses

    I'm applying to TWU Dallas in Sept. Currently I am taking AP I and Micro. I will finish stats and AP II this summer. I will take TEAS V this summer. I'm nervous about finishing my courses right before the applications are due, since the website says apply 6 weeks before the 9/1 cutoff.
    How long does it take for them to receive our TEAS scores? I'm not sure how to time that-wait to finish classes or take it before I finish classes.

    Hi kmlnielsen! I wouldn't worry too much about having everything in 6 weeks before the deadline. I was worried about that too, but I talked to my advisor, and she told me that as long as everything is at the school before 9/1, then we're good.
    My advisor also told me that as long as I took the TEAS at least a week before the 9/1 cut-off date, then my score would be there in time. So I'm guessing it takes a couple of days for them to receive the score?
    Hope that helps!
