    Try not to panic! There's people in my class with up to 5 kids(!!) and many of them have been able to hang in there, although I'm sure there's plenty of challenges. Like you said, time management is vital! Be aware of when all the exams are, when you have to have things done by, and prepare yourself accordingly. Try to break the workload down so it's more manageable and definitely don't cram. Like, for care... you might set a goal of answering 20 NCLEX questions each day (from the Saunders NCLEX book, NCLEX-3500 questions, or whatever you prefer). Almost everyone has a hard time at first, but it'll get better once you figure out what works best for you and adjust.

    If there's a convenient metro route near you, or a park and ride or something, you might want to consider that. Or take the shuttle if you can. I don't take the metro so I don't really have much info on it. I park at garage 8 on the corner of Pressler & Holcombe. It's $6/day (you won't find a cheaper daily rate in the med center) and there's always plenty of parking, and it's pretty easy to get in & out. However it's a 10 min walk from campus. The garages closer to campus are way too expensive and probably harder to get in & out of. Some garages offer contracts if you prefer that, but I don't think there's any benefit to a contract unless you plan on studying on campus on days you don't have class, or something like that.

    Yeah, it's horrible. I think the garages closer to campus are $12/day(!!!) and the one across the street on Holcombe (garage 2 if I remember correctly) is like 8 levels or something ridiculous. So I can only imagine how much of a pain it is to get in and out. I definitely recommend parking further away and then walk, or depending where you park, take the metro rail or the UT shuttle to campus.

    Hello, I've been following the thread and It seems to me that many of you who were on a waitlist were called later and accepted to another application period. Does this mean you may be accepted into a later start date and not have to re-apply or did you apply to all sessions? Also, if you are on a waitlist does this give you precedence over new applicants for the next session? I'm just curious if I should apply, my GPAs are average: Overall 3.25, Pre-Req 3.53, Science 4.0. Thanks for any insight!

    Who wants to know about the metro?! I was taking it from Katy to school every morning. It was costing me 4.50 both ways I believe. In order to pay that price (student discount) you'd have to go to the metro store and bring some paperwork in show them that you are a student and that gets you a 50% discount! So 4.50 opposed to 9. It's pretty great though. The only bad thing is that the buses from Katy stop running at 6:39 and then don't start pickin up till 3. So depending on when you get your lab time for health assessment, you may have to be waiting at school for a few hrs (studying!). I don't get on here much but I will try to remember to log on this week so you guys can ask me any questions you may have! Good luck to all of you! And remember to just relax before school starts because you won't get much time to relax once school starts.

    How much is it for contract parking in the garage? Is it yearly? Monthly?

    The school was advertising a $89/month contract that's supposedly a "discount" price. If I remember correctly, it wasn't even that close to campus. There's others where you can pay for the whole semester. I don't know the details but I found this w/google.

    It's not worth it in my opinion.

    Hi all!

    I just got accepted for Fall 2013! Yay!

    But I'm still hesitant because I also got accepted to UTMB so I'm trying to figure out which school is better for me.
    I know a lot of people have told me that UTHSC is EXTREMELY competitive and that they didn't particularly like the program when they were there.

    But it's such a highly ranked school and so convenient since it's in town. Decisions, decisions.......
