    Is getting an interview part of the regular nursing process or have you just made it to the second round? I have an interview next week and I am very nervous? I have 3.8 gpa on sciences and a 3.4 gpa on my undergraduate? But my NET scores were not to good and I do not have volunteer work or any healthcare experience. How many people do they accepted into the program per semester, I applying for fall 2007. What else do they look at for the acceptance into the program?

    I can't answer your questions with any certainty, but I believe the interview process is the 2nd phase from what I understand. I know for sure they picked out 450 to interview and when I went it looked like interviews were done in alphabetical order so if you last name is closer to the end of the alphabet you get an interview later. They admit about 120 students. Over 1,000 applied but the 450 interviewed are the ones being considered for the 120 spots. I'm not sure what they look at other than GPA, NET, and interview. I hope this clarified a little. I'm pretty much in the same boat as far as not knowing much!

    Hi Guys! I'm a 2007 hopeful too. Have applied to Blinn for the summer mobility track and Austin Comm. College (ACC) mobility track for the fall. I am scheduled to take the NET this month and am terrified about the math portion. Is it hard---someone please help!

    Thanks!
    So how was your interview and what type of questions did they ask you? So, probably out of the 120 spots, there will probably only be about 30 males picked based on the percent of males applying. I was just wondering because I am a male student.

    I am not good at math and did not do too good on my NET. There was fractions, percent, and decimals.

    My interview is this Friday, the 9th. Can anyone give me any pointers on what to expect? I've never had an interview before and I dont have any pre-nursing friends that can give me any insight on this topic. How much does the interview count toward their decision of either to accept you or not? Do they ask you if you have any questions at the end of the interview? Is the interview on a personal basis? I would be SO grateful if someone could reply to this. I am a nervous wreck.

    I think we talked about this earlier in the thread, but oh well.

    The questionnaire is nothing you can prepare for. Just factual stuff.

    What classes do you have remaining in terms of pre-reqs? Do you speak a foreign language? Are you among the first in your family to be in college?

    As for questions at the end of the interview... I totally got the vibe that it was just honest questions.

    I didn't ask anything that would 'impress" the person interviewing me. I just asked some things I wanted to know.

    Just be yourself, its not scary at all, I promise.

    Loom,
    Congratulations on your interview! I interviewed last week. The interview was relaxed and friendly. You will do great!

    How does UT houston pick the few to be admitted into their school? Do they use a point scale to rank our interviews, grades/gpa, and our NET score and assign scores to each of us and then the top 130 with the highest scores are accepted? What scores on the NET do they look at? is it just the Math, Science reading comprehension, and the composite percentage?
