    Hello, all!

    I applied a little later in the application cycle and am now waiting on my admissions decision.

    I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have been checking my inbox!
    I know EXACTLY how you feel. I was checking my email like every 30 minutes for days, until I finally gave up. My anxiety was through the roof!..... I'm sure you'll get in.

    I am also for sure going to UTHSCSA in May and I applied back in October/November. I really wish they would send out our email/student ID and the information regarding the computer. I don't want to have to pay thousands of dollars overnight because they waited until the last minute. I am not made of money, and I've already spent $350 just to get my seat, CPR, and fingerprints. Bleh... Sorry for venting.

    Do they have to have a specific number of applicants every single cycle?

    I don't know if they have to have a specific number of applicants. I wonder how many seats they have left to fill though. On the email that got sent to us upon acceptance it said students have spent 16,00-2,200 for laptops and possibly more if the books are preloaded. From what I have read in other forums, you can choose from a 13 or 15 inch MAC or Dell and the Dell has been having it's share of problems. Most people get the MAC. I'm just preparing for the worst. Worst of all, I'm not from SA. I still have to find a place to live.

    Just got an email saying they are working on our student email accounts and going by alphabetical order so some of us might get it before others!

    My last name starts with "A," so I'll let y'all know when I get mine.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I just received my badge # and email account information this morning. My last name starts with B. Hopefully everyone should be getting theirs soon if you haven't received it yet!

    I received mine too! I'm having a little trouble changing my temporary pswd though... Anyone else having difficulties?

    I'm having trouble. It's not recognizing the temp pw and now it has locked me out. I'm about to call the help desk.

    Oh, I figured out the problem. I was entering my badge ID instead of the username when trying to change my temp pswd. oops

    Has anyone gotten their background check? How long does it take to receive the blue card

    For those of you who are still waiting on acceptance emails... I just called the admissions desk, and because they have extended the deadline (again) to Feb 1st, we won't be hearing back until sometime after that date. I would assume that they are going to allow these new applicants to turn in their supplementals before making any decisions; so, we probably won't hear back until mid February...

    Although I just heard this afternoon about admissions decisions being delayed until February...I just received my acceptance letter!! I can't wait to get the ball rolling and cannot wait to meet all of you who have been accepted!
