UTHSC-Houston BSN Summer 2013

  1. 0 While I'm part of the discussion forum for the UTHSC-Houston fall 2013, I couldn't see any discussion forum for the summer 2013 entry that I decided to create a new thread. I have applied both for the summer and fall, 2013 at UTMB and UTHSC. I have submitted all my application documents to both schools and I'm patiently waiting for interview/decision. Anyone in the same situation?

    I applied for the UT houston accelerated program but not the UTMB program because its a longer drive for me but I don't think UT does interviews anymore. I think UTMB however still does .

    Yes, UTHSC-Houston has no interview anymore but UTMB has been interviewing both for the traditional and accelerated BSN.

    I've also applied for both UTMB and UTH's summer accelerated programs! Any idea of when we're supposed to be hearing back from either school?

    Hey guys! If we don't have all the pre-reqs before class begins should we sign up for the missing credits? Or should we wait until we know forsure we are excepted? But what happens if it's not until April we find out...? Need help with this scenario.

    I was curious about the same thing... I know we definitely have to finish the course before the nursing classes start.

    I've applied for the Summer 2013 accelerated program as well. They have started transcript evals, but I do not believe they have sent any out yet... I would definitely sign up and get the missing credits out of the way because if you do get accepted and still have pre-reqs outstanding they will not let you start the program! I called up to the school with this scenario and explained to them that it was not fair for them to do transcript evals and we get them in Feb/March and it be to late to sign up for a class that we need to have done.... They were like, you just have to wait for your eval and if you need still need classes then you might have to postpone your start date... so I took it into my own hands and went through with a fine tooth comb and signed up for the one class I was unsure about.... I'd rather be safe than sorry!

    Gotcha! That makes sense! I actually signed up for my pre reqs this semester at a community college. I have to take 4 online course but it is not a problem! Does anyone know how many applicants they accept for the summer?

    If I remember correctly from the info session I attended last summer (I don't have my notes from it with me at the moment...) it was between 100 to 150 people... I wouldn't quote me on that though.

    Hi everyone. I have also applied to UT's accelerated program. I submitted my application in early-mid September, and it says it is complete in their portal, but haven't heard anything else from them yet. I called a while back and they said we wouldn't hear anything til March-April, the wait definitely sucks though! I applied to UTMB's program as well, and I have an interview next Thur, I am excited and nervous! I'd love to go to UT, only because UTMB is far, but hey, I'll go where they take me! hehe. Good luck everyone!!

    I take it that you are finished with all of your prereq's since your app shows complete?? I spoke to a person in the registrars office and they have started transcript evals, so be watching for that in the mean time... I'm in 2 classes this spring finishing up, so mine still says incomplete... I totally agree with you, the wait does suck! I haven't applied to any other programs... I know that is not really smart on my part, but I definitely want to attend UT and do the accelerated program. It is hard leaving a full time job and doing just school... kind of scary to be honest! I believe that the career change is going to be for the best though, so it will definitely be worth it in the end.

    On another note, I wish that UT SON still had interviews as part of their admissions process... unfortunately that is not the case any more! Good luck with you interview and this whole process! I guess we will all be waiting until March for now...
