    Mine starts with a C and I've had a green circle since mid August. So I have no idea what order they go in.

    There are no SON courses that are available before being accepted. From what I know of most programs (non-UT specific); all the coursework (past the pre-reqs) are done cohort style. That means you are assigned a section and move through the entire program in that section.

    I have heard before that TWU would allow students to take patho before being accepted (but not in Houston), and some ADN programs allow pharm; but I from I can tell UT makes no exceptions.

    I talked to a lady from UT who was at HCC and asked her what they look for in their applicants. She said to even be considered, they want a 3.25 gpa and a 75% or better on all sections for the hesi.

    At the information session that I attended last spring they quoted a ~3.6-3.7 GPA, ~90% HESI and I forgot the critical thinking score (700?) to be competitive.

    I guess they don't have a set criteria..

    I also talked to a lady from the SON (at a college fair thing at HCC Spring branch) briefly and mentioned that I applied for spring 2013. According to her, about 700 people applied and there are 150 spots available (someone mentioned this a few pages back, so I confirmed that this is true). This is great news because they increased the number of students accepted and there were less than the 900 applicants that the SON was expecting. So I think we all have a great chance of making it. I also asked about transcript evals and she said they're still sending them out. So I guess all I can do until Nov is just be patient.

    I applied a year ago but didn't get accepted. There was a few who got in with low scores but lots of people with4.0s didn't get in. It's not all about 4.0's or 90's on the HESI. Noone really knows what they are looking for. They also called two others I knew who were accepted to TWU. They asked them if they wanted to accept but they said no because classes had already started at UT and they would have been behind. So don't lose hope if you don't get accepted the first go-around. I'm going to apply to the UH-BACC2 programs next year. Good luck to all.

    What so you mean they "called" two others?
