    Hey everyone, I am sure if I was on Facebook I would already have all the answers to my questions, but alas. If anyone who was accepted for Fall 2012 is still keeping up with this forum, do yall know what the timeline is for registering for classes? Registration for BSN starts on 7/16, but orientation isn't until 8/15 and I thought I read somewhere that you had to go through orientation before you could register for classes. Of course that doesn't seem right or else why would registration start a month before? I am finishing my last pre-req class now so I won't be able to do anything until I get my last transcript in early August so I won't be able to register any time soon anyway, but I was just curious. How do we even know what classes we are supposed to register for? I thought they might go over that in the registration. I am freaking out a little since it there are still so many steps before I can feel 100% certain that nothing will go wrong and prevent me from enrolling...I have to tell my boss that I am quitting and that is terrifying when there is any possibility that something will happen and all my to-dos won't get processed in time.

    I was told we were supposed to receive a packet in the mail detailing how and what we are supposed to register for. It is supposed to arrive somewhere around time we register or middle July. I'll email them tomorrow and ask what we are supposed to know/do, just to make sure.

    This is what it says on my nursing orientation hold: Mandatory attendance at an Orientation Session is required before you will be allowed to Enroll in classes. Contact the School of Nursing Student Affairs
    Office for more information. (713) 500-2199 soninfo@uth.tmc.edu

    Ah, speak of the devil. Got my packet from them today.

    You shouldn't have a Nursing Orientation hold. This should be a part of your to do list. Go to your holds on myUTH and see what is listed. The only ones I have left are my Immunization hold(info already sent, just waiting for them to take off the hold) and my Identity Management hold(which I am taking care of tomorrow).

    Regular registration begins on July 16th, and goes to August 24th. Late registration is August 25-31. You must have all of your holds completed and taken down by that time! You will receive instruction on how to register for courses when you begin registration through myUTH.

    For clarity, Holds must be completed before you can register and pay for your classes. Your To Do list must be completed before classes start. Some things may show up on both(like verifying your insurance, immunizations), but for right now only concern yourself with your holds so you may register as soon as possible.

    Hey everyone!! Sorry I have been MIA for a bit. Things have been crazy this summer Congratulations to those who have been accepted off of the wait list!! That is awesome news and I look forward to getting to know each of you over the next year and half.

    For those of you still not on the FB account, I HIGHLY encourage you to join. The group will be used for more than just current information to start the program. Over the coming time there will be study guides, etc posted and shared, Questions asked and answered, etc. I am a member of the Spring 2013 graduating classes group and I see the amount of activity they have there. It is SUBSTANTIAL!!!

    All Holds need to be removed to register... EXCEPT for your Identity Management hold. That one will not prevent you from being able to select and enroll into your classes. Anything on your To-Do list will not prevent you from enrolling in classes, just your holds. Today was the first day of registration and I have already registered. The process is super easy. FYI - book lists are still not available, but should be ready for us before the end of the month.

    If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to PM me I will help any way that I can, but I cannot say it enough that the FB page is REALLY helpful. It is a great support system for all of us.

    So, just came across this and am so excited!! I was accepted on June 15 and was beyond ecstatic!!! I found the Facebook group for Uthsc son class of December 2013 and asked to join!!! I am amazed at what technology can do, we'll be able to "virtually meet" before orientation... Hope to see you all aug 27!!!

    This is my first post. I owe this forum as I had been reading some good posts. My profile is as follows:
    Science GPA: 4.0
    Overall GPA: 3.9
    Bachelors : 3.5
    HESI overall :82%, CT : 900
    I wsa a DR in my country for 17years and have US clinical experience of 4 years as a MA. I applied for Summer 2012 and Fall 2012. I was denied for both in April 2012. I email to UT asking "what more you want". Should I repeat my HESI, my maths was 70% only. They replied we will review your application. The same reply in May and till June 6th. I started applying to UH victoria, Tx A & M. They both assured me that I have a very high chance. Yesterday to my surprise I got a phone call from Ut asking me if I was admitted to some other college. If not they have an offer for me. They accepted my application for fall 2012. I was shocked, not at all happy. I could not forget the pain I took for 3 months; praying literally every 5 seconds, checking email million times and above all the feeling that hard work does not pay. Meanwhile I had met the UH councillar 4 times, email her 7 times and we had built a very good relationship.
    Finally my husband made a decision, UT has a 35 year old program verses 3 years at UH. The LESSON learnt is that hard work does pay, prayers are heard, its just your luck when the good news comes.
    My advice is, keep on trying and one day you will succeed.

    Hi Seemar,
    Like you, this is my first time on the forum. I have followed it since i placed my application for the fall 2012 semester. I also did get a call 2 days ago letting me know that I have been accepted in the fall 2012 program. I am so glad and can only agree that prayers do work, and hard work does. I look forward to working with you all during the semester. Congrats!!!!

    @stacymonique, what material would you recommed studying for the HESI? I am applying to UTHSCH and was wondering if you could offer some advice. Im not sure if I should apply quite yet because I still have a couple classes to take. Anyways, here's my current stats:
    prereq's: 3.7
    science gpa: 3.75
    classes left: gov't 2305, gov't 2306, history 2, engl 2, medical micro.
    Im getting antsy!! I already started an application to get my name in the system and this fall I am planning on taking gov't 2305, history 2, engl 2 and medical micro. Then in a minimester I will do gov't 2306 and hopefully done with all prereq classes in December. Thoughts?? I'm not sure if I should start studying for the HESI. Agh, its so frustrating and confusing.
