UTHSCSA Waitlisted/Alternate Experience

  1. Hello everyone, I am active duty military and I wanted to apply for our NECP program. This program would pay for my nursing school for two years. This is my first year applying for school and I sort of put all my eggs in two baskets.. The first basket, UTHSCSA didnt work out for me. I recently found out I was waitlisted/put on the alternate list. Thats pretty hurtful and it feels like a rejection. But from what I understand its not a complete loss because I didnt get totally rejected. I pretty much dont have a shot at getting into the NECP program without a conditional letter of acceptance from a school. (I have to talk to Wayland Baptist this week)

    So that being said, has anyone in this forum ever been put on a waitlist for UTHSCSA and eventually got in? If how long did it take for you to find out or get offered a seat? Does being waitlisted pretty much mean I need to just put my energy into reapplying next year? Any advice, would be helpful, not matter if it will not be the best news!! Thanks everyone..

    Have you thought about Texas State?

    I have, but I think on their website, it said your sciences had to be within 5 yrs. I took my AP and Chemistry over 5 yrs ago, and I dont plan on retaking those any time soon! Or atleast I didnt have time to retake them prior to applying.

    On second thought.. They just opened up another nursing school campus in Round Rock, and I might try to see if I can work it out up there! My family is from Killeen, so that is right up the street and would be perfect!
