UTHSC-H Spring 2013 Hopefuls

  1. I know there is some time before we will apply, but I was hoping to get a group together so we can go through this process together. Are there any 2013 hopefuls out there with me?

    I'm definitely one!! Thinking of applying to UTH, UTMB, and TWU. But time will be going by soon and I've already started preparing since I just started pursuing nursing as a career choice.

    Hello, I will be applying soon too. I am nervous because my GPA is not so great. 3.22 pre-reqs and 3.0 science. Have yall heard of anyone who has gotten in with a low gpa?
    UTH, UTMB and TWU are definetely my choices.

    Has anyone taken the HESI yet? Do they require the chem section?

    I have not taken the Hesi yet. Thinking about taking it this summer some time. Not sure. But Chem is not required. Only "Math, Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary and General Knowledge, Grammar, Anatomy and Physiology, Critical Thinking, Learning Styles and Personality Styles."
    Has anyone applied yet?

    Does anyone know if they look at "W's" I have 4 and was wondering if that is something that could keep me from getting accepted.

    Hello everyone,

    I am a UTHSC Spring 2013/Summer 2013 hopeful as well. Was wondering if anyone has started the application process? Can you start your application even though you are still taking pre-req's and haven't taken the HESI? I know you can apply as long as you have 40 hours of the pre-reqs done, 8 of those hours being the specified sciences... Has anyone started this yet?

    Hey guys!
    I am applying for the Spring 13 term!
    I am also applying at UTA, TWU, and possibly TCU!

    I just recently decided to try UT HSC and I am praying to God I get in somewhere! Does anyone know how competitive it is? UTA is my first choice BUT it is SO hard to get in if you don't have any of their "special considerations"...
    My stats are 3.75 Science GPA, 3.5-ish Overall GPA...and I scored higher then a 75% in all sections of the Hesi.

    To kimbers2882,Yes, you can apply early and fulfill your prerequisite and take the HESI at a later time, as long as before the deadline, which is Sep 1. I have applied and they give you a "to do list" and their corresponding deadline, including when they need to receive the transcript and HESI score.

    Unfortunately, I am going to have to push back applying until Fall 2013. Blah! I took the summer off when I really should have gone, but I needed a break. Good luck to all of you guys applying for Spring 2013! Keep me posted on how it goes!
