    THANKS!!! Hehehehehe - Yes that was me asking the bazillion questions in the front! lol I came to that session with a purpose in mind, and I was planning on getting ALL my questions answered!!! How did you like my question about learning styles? I think that threw her for a loop Oops!

    I drive in from the 288 area, and it took me about 30-ish minutes with traffic. This time I parked in the parking garage at Memorial Herman, and I paid $5, but they have a sign that says only for visitors and patients.... well technically today I was a "visitor".... But if we get accepted I was told there is the rail, and that they will bus students around as well. I forget the name of the site I was told to go to, but I believe she said that it is about $60 a month to use.

    Below are a few things I forgot to mention as well......

    * Financial aid - They said to go ahead and apply for FAFSA, and this way your already prepped if your admitted and you can start the process for loans and scholarships!

    * If you applied for the traditional then you can be placed into the pacesetter program. Unfortunately at this time you CANNOT chose which program you want.... They said that in the future they may allow students to choose if they would like to be considered, but until then it is COMPLETELY random.

    I had a feeling it was you I didn't think I was going to ask as many questions as I did. At one point I felt like I was waving a flag... That was a great question about learning styles. After that, I was gonna ask how much that really plays into the acceptance, considering there is no interview process anymore (I didn't coz in my head, the phrasing sounded obnoxious, so I held back. hehehehe).

    The one thing that I'm glad that Dr. McEwen mentioned is that in regards to clinicals, they make every effort to work with you in the placement/choices. With these gas prices, I really hope that's true!

    I have to look into that rail system at some point. Or car pools. Or maybe I'll invade my sister's home in West U.!

    Hi everyone,

    After reading this message board for months, I have finally decided to join. I applied to UTHSC, UTMB and TWU for the Fall of 2012, and am so incredibly nervous to find out if I get accepted! My background and degrees are in architecture, but I recently decided to return to school for nursing. My stats are as follows:

    First Undergraduate GPA: 3.484
    First Graduate GPA: 4.0
    Nursing Prerequisite GPA: 3.9
    Science GPA: 4.0
    HESI: 92.23%

    @Hemphia: Thank you so much for all your posts! They have been incredibly helpful and reassuring. I hope, after reading your post following the information session, that I have a good chance of getting in!

    hey yall! I'm back I was already accepted last semester, but I thought I would be travelling to India for 6 months so I turned down the opportunity. However my boyfriend and I changed our minds about India so I re-applied for this semester and hopefully I get in.

    Retook my Hesi to get a higher critical thinking score. My results:

    95% overall 880 on critical thinking. Lowest score was A&P with 88%

    Pre-reqs- 3.9
    Science- 4.0
    undergrad - 3.6

    Currently taking Pharmacology at HCC and accepted to their Fall 2012 program. Hopefully I get UT-H though.

    Springhopeful- my question was basically asking if they felt that certain learning styles do better in the program. She answered that some do better than others in some areas but then they may be weaker in other areas. She said it is better to be rounded.

    Saraiish - I did not apply last semester. This is my first attempt at trying to get into a BSN program. I'm hoping this will be my only time to have to apply. Julianne_Rader - Your welcome. I wish everybody good luck.

    Hi encephalon7! Just a quick question, did you study anything in particular to improve your critical thinking score? Thanks.

    Good luck getting accepted again this semester! :-)
