    My last name begins with a W. I am just gonna wait for my letter, I guess. I am assuming that is going to be the most definite way of knowing because it seems even the people that were accepted have other things they are now worrying about?

    Yep...... I know I now have a HUGE decision to make. I'm torn between UTHSC and UTMB. I like both of the schools and must now determine which one is going to be better for me and my family.

    Anyone has an idea of whether we are required to have a BLS adult CPR certification only or the pediatric one too. Also, whether they would accept a certification from an online course (e.g. cprtoday.com).

    Most programs want the AHA (American Heart Assn.) Healthcare Provider certification. I am pretty sure that's what is needed here too.

    It cannot be online. Your going to need to take your BLS in class. They will only take your CPR from a company that is listed through AHA website. I just got mine 2 weeks ago. The class isn't much harder than the normal CPR classes.

    Thanks Amymit & thanks Hemphia.

    Hemphia, I go to sanjac too, did you get your CPR somewhere around that area and may I ask how long it took and how much did it cost.

    Gladiator_80- I'm in the same area, and I found a BLS CPR class in Clear Lake through the AHA website. It is from 9am - 12 on a sat morning. no price listed, but from what I've read it should be about $80.

    I paid $50 for my CPR, and the place I went was through AHA. The company name is TriOneCPR. It was done out of his home, very comfy. It was about 3 hours long and I did it on a Friday. He is off Blackhawk near beltway 8. Easy to get to. I plan on using him for my resertification. I already have been CPR certified before... Not sure ifnthat affected the price for me, but he was still very much worth it. I liked the environment of his home better than a classroom. He is also willing to travel and come to where you want. PM me if you want his number.....
