Hi! I noticed this thread a few days ago and felt it needs a little bump, now that everyone's applying for Spring '12.
I share your fears about the GPA thing. I went to UTSA and due to stuff going on in my life at the time, my GPA is atrocious. So I transferred to SAC and started fresh and have maintained a 3.8 something. But depending on how it's calculated, I may not even have a chance at UTHSCSA. But I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.
I applied for the Fall '11 but they didn't receive my transcripts on time. I sent it electronically. Probably not a good idea. I ordered my TEAS V book and will start studying this week. Just in case.
I'm a couple classes short but still have the required 42 hours of pre-requisites.
I applied to the SAC nursing program, too but this is definitely my first choice.
