    I've also been accepted to Midwestern so I'm not sure where to go. Does anyone know anything about either school?

    Hello everyone.Congrats to those who made it into the program. I will apply to the accelerated program next year. I need to take some of the prereqs. I would like to know what yall did to prepare for the TEAS V. Maybe I can buy your study material. I will be in Tyler in 2 weeks to meet with an advisor. I will be taking my prereqs at Brookhaven College. Any advice will be appreciated.
    Hope to hear from someone.

    Hello hopeful_st. I was wondering how you prepared for the TEAS. I would like to get an idea of how high my gpa needs to be. I am planning to apply for the accelerated program.

    UT Tyler's NCLEX pass rate average is ~94 in 5 yrs, whereas Midwestern averages ~82. UT Tyler has a larger student population than Midwestern, but Midwestern is a little bit cheaper to go to (but they're relatively the same). I don't know much more than that.

    I bought the TEAS V study manual from atitesting and it helped me a lot. I studied one section at a time and I made sure to do the practice tests that are in the book. You will not have a calculator when you do your TEAS so be sure you can do Math/Science problems without a calculator. I already sold my study manual but you can find them online pretty easily.

    No it has like 4 members.

    And honestly I didn't really study for the teas. I probably should have. I did okay but Im sure I would have done wayy better if I studied. I bought the study manual but only read through it once or twice. Study that and you should be okay. I think your points or grades matter more than anything though. Just my thought.

    Awesome! Def did not know that. Thanks for the information. That makes my decisions a little easier

    I initially took the TEAS for TWU so i bought the book that my TWU advisor recommended. I still have it if you need it... It was a lot harder than I thought and time was a BIG issue, so pace yourself. I would even take one of the practice test's online, I feel like that would have prepared me better. I didn't do so great on the TEAS but my grades are good. So like hopeful said, I think grades matter the most esp. your sciences.

    Did you do anything to improve your chances to get accepted the second time?

    Well i talked to the advisors and they said that all I could do was reapply and maybe I would have a better chance of getting accepted for the spring semester since there would be less applicants. I guess they were right! But really just make sure your grades are good. It always helps to have taken a certain amount of hours at the school your applying to, b/c they consider their own students before looking at the transfers. They told me there reason I didn't get in the first time was because there were so many Tyler student applicants, and that there was no room left for the transfers.

    Hope this helps.

    I also reapplied for the spring and got in this time around. I never took philosophy till this past summer so that made my points higher since it was the only core class i had not taken and by taking philosophy I got my associates this past summer as well (it was the last class I needed to get an associates) so that was another 2 more points. Don't know if it made much of a difference.

    And yes the teas is definitely more difficult than I was expecting. So if you have good grades and an okay to good teas score you should be okay in my opinion. But study for it because I didn't have much time to study for it and it showed.

    Sorry about asking so many questions. Im not sure if I will have all prereqs by the time I apply. Does anyone know if they grant conditional entry into the program?
