    Yes/No is used for bachelor degree. It counts just like an extra "first A attemp" according to what the advisor posted here few days ago.

    Somehow my post got confused by how I worded it. Yes, I have memorized every single bit of what is posted on twu.edu/nursing. I was asking the person [the person who I quoted] - if they included their bump when they posted their GPA. Nothing other than that they merely said I got a "something.(point)something" and I was just asking if they included the BUMP in that GPA. I don't need a bunch of people to explain the procedure to me - I know it already. I'm not trying to sound rude - I'm just saying I know how they calculate already...

    Thanks for the information. I will apply next year. I am glad to know that my degree will count somehow. Congrats to all of you who got in. For the ones who didn't, don't give up. I heard the numbers change every semester, it all depends on the level of all applicants. Good luck!

    My gpa is as is; I did not add 0.4 to it since I didn't believe it to be a true gpa bump as sshuman said. I merely wanted to indicate that I completed the minimum 16 hours at TWU.

    I was told by my advisors that the .4 bump is not actually a gpa bump. She said it is filled out as a "yes" or "no" on their spreadsheet. If you look at the gpa calculator it only says "yes" or "no" as well. I thought I would have .4 added to my gpa at first but was corrected when I saw my advisor in August. She said it used to add .4 but now it just acts as a preference. I dont know how they figure it out on the spread sheet but the advisor laughed when I said "Ohh so I get an addition 0.4 added." It is quite confusing, if you ask me!

    Also, I didnt mean to sound like I was explaining the procedure. The student you asked is actually one of my friends, which is why I responded. A lot of things are misunderstood or are not clear about the procedure which has confused me immensely. I was just trying to help.

    The best information I have heard was there was a little over 900 applicants total and historically the split is about 50/50 for Dallas and Houston. So far I haven't see any published statistical information. I can only report what the told us at the open house.

    I believe they accepted about 100 students for each location as well.

    Thank you! It is confusing!

    I received my acceptance into UTHSC today. So I will be revoking my spot at TWU in Houston. That's one more spot for someone else!

    I'm wishing I had applied to TWU Houston now! It seems like a lot of applicants who applied to both TWU Houston & UTHSC and got accepted to both, are choosing UTHSC and leaving a lot of open spots for the alternates. Is this because it goes through the summer so it is shorter or has anyone heard of one program being better than the other, as far as Houston is concerned??

    Just asking because I'm applying to both of them for Fall 2013 since I didn't get in to TWU Dallas. Thanks!

    I am turning down TWU Houston for UTHSC Houston because UTHSC-H is15 months instead of two years. I have not heard one program being any better than the other.
