UTMB BACC2 Spring 2012

  1. I wanted to start a thread for those applying for UTMB's 2012 accelerated nursing program. The application is open April 1-July 15. I was told invites for interviews start after the application is closed and interviews start end July-August. Does anyone have any additional information? Has anyone applied before? Know of any interview questions? Please share everything you know!!!!!!!

    Good luck to everyone

    Are you sure the application deadline is July 15? I thought the website stated June 15.

    I'm actually applying for the traditional BSN program for the spring 2012. It's my first time so I'm new to all this aswell. However, I've heard that interviews will start towards mid/end of July.

    Does anyone know if you want to apply to both the BACC2 and the traditional, do you have to submit two different applications?

    newme10 - no just submit one to the best fit program and include a sentence in the supporting statement indicating your desire to be considered for the other program as well.

    also new for 2012 - we are supposed to take the teas v exam which was not required last year before the application deadline of june 15th.

    to our sucess!

    I just read through some of the UTMB BACC2 Spring 2011 posts and am really worried now. Posts dated in September were saying they are now getting interview invites. An adviser at UTMB told me that we should expect them early July and interviews should start end July. I currently live in Japan and will be flying to the states for the summer to take some prereqs lab classes and be there in case I get an interview. I really don't want to be in the states from mid May until Sept/Oct!

    I submitted my application April 3. Does anyone know where/how to check the status of your application. I want to make sure my official transcripts make it there! I received an email saying "Correspondence will be forthcoming in 3-5 business days" and it's been 10 business days. Thanks

    Hello You guys! I will be applying to UTMB for spring 2012 as well. I have so many mixed emotions. It's perfect to get on here and chat with your guys about the nursing program.

    Hi! I will also be applying to the BACC2 program for spring 2012. I'm working on my application now. I'm excited but so nervous! Is anyone going to an open house?

    I am also going to apply for the bacc2 program. I applied to the reg program for this August and have not heard a peep. On last years thread some were given the choice to accept either program during the fall application period. On the thread for the reg program someone went to an open house and was told if you have 3.4 (I think it was) on your first degree you will be admitted. I did not hear that but you can look through all the threads to find it.

    Hello all,

    What exactly are the pre-requisites to even be considered into this program? I have a bachelor of arts; therefore, I was not required to take too many sciences. The only sciences I took in college were Biology and Geology. My question is what sciences do I have to have already taken before being considered.
