    I think you are good, but it is really hard to tell what they are looking for. There have been people on here who said they have a 4.0 GPA and did not get accepted... Just do well on the Hesi like kekebrwn and I think you should be fine. They said at the info session that they understand that not everyone will do well in all of their classes, but that shouldn't hurt you as long as you meet/exceed minimum requirements.
    Thank you for the support. I've decided that I'm going to retake chem and hopefully replace my C with an A and bump my gpa to 3.7. Since I only have two weeks to study for the HESI I'm leanin towards pushing back my application until next spring.

    I tried scheduling my HESI in January but the testing center said UTHSC-H will only let you test up to 12/31. I'm afraid that I'll ruin my last attempt because I rushed once again.

    I'm also applying to TWU and Texas A&M- college station. I have over a month to prepare for my exams and feel that it might be best to wait and if I don't get accepted I will then apply for spring 2013 at UTHSC.

    My Gpa was around that and I got a C in Chemistry. I would say as long as your other classes are fine don't worry too much about that. Just do well on the Hesi.
    I'm pretty set on retaking Chem just in case I don't get accepted. Otherwise I'll be reapplying with the same stats. I might change my mind though because I need to save up and work while I'm in nursing school!!

    Well good luck with that class. I applied to UT twice before I got in. Once for the accelerated bachelor's degree program and then to this program which I got in. I have a 3.06 science Gpa and 3.44 prerequisite Gpa. I also have two bachelor degrees and the second one I got this past May and was able to apply for this application period with it. I believe those helped but I also believe it was the grace of God. I prayed almost everyday to get in. I know that you will get in. Keep trying and keep the faith.

    i have the pdf to the study guide your talking about it was free not $67 @ jayn 108 did it help with A&p what about your study guide for vocab
    Hello Soon2bNurse2015, the readforthehesi PDF was very helpful. I recommend studying each section. For the vocab, I used quizlet.com to study and practice. Just type in hesi a2 and you will get a list of many vocab practices. Good luck

    Try not to be so hard on yourself. I think with your stats you are fine! I've debated on retaking Chem because I like you... got a C! I debated on retaking the course, but It has been almost 10 years since I took that course at A&M and I don't think I'm going to retake it... My science GPA is 3.5 and once I finish Micro it will be higher, so I'm not going to stress myself over that one. I got a 92% overall on my HESI because I did not have A&P II when I took the exam and I got a 890 on Critical Thinking... I'm just going to go with it and pray to God I get accepted.

    Good luck with the Texas A&M... I graduated from A&M and their admissions makes me nervous! They require so much more than UT! I know it is still a fairly new program, but they have a very tough admissions process and requirements. I'm sure you will do well and get in to one or the other! Have faith.

    We found out yesterday at orientation that our class is 173 ppl! Some ppl did not show up to orientation (which was mandatory) so Im assuming those of you who have been waitlisted may be getting calls for those spots pretty soon!!
