    They require at least a 75% but to be competitive you'll want a much higher score than that. You should aim to score in at least the high 80s.

    i'm waiting on an acceptance or denial notification...

    you can start applying as soon as you finish 40hours of the prerequisites, but must have all 60 completed by the start of the semester you apply.

    Check out the link i posted, it will give you an applicant check list as well as transfer information. From what everyone has posted UTHSC doesn't look at your over all GPA but rather your transferrable GPA and science GPA.

    Try to take your HESI after you've taken A&P 1 & 2 so you have a good base for the A&P sections and study early...it's a lot of material to review so you don't want to cram.

    3.5 isn't bad... and you still have the opportunity to bring it up if you want. Doing well on your lab science classes (A&P I and II, chem, micro) is very important.

    Oh okay Heykim, well wish you luck and hope you get into the program. I have just submitted my application into the university, and I plan to take my hesi exam as soon as I can. If you dont mind me asking what is the transferrable gpa?

    thanks transferrable GPA is just the gpa of the courses that they accept for transfer

    where are you taking your prereqs?

    Dr. Hebel at HCC is awesome for Micro, but her classes fill up within 10 minutes of open registration

    Oh okay lol.

    I am taking my prereqs at my community college in the Starr Coutny but after I finish this semester I plan to moving out to Houston. I have heard that UTHSC is a one of the top ranking Universitys.

    According to U.S News they are #21 in the nation and #1 in Texas. Definitely a competitve program and worth the work getting in.

    I believe as long as it's an academic course it will apply as an elective.

    from the prerequisite transfer guide: ** Elective requirement: Nursing, remedial and physical education courses are not acceptable to fulfill this requirement.
    I took Human Sexuality and Medical Terminology. I figured even though they are electives it would help me to take courses in the health field.
