    I agree with ledestiny & punkydoodles...take your time with your statement! My GPA wasn't considered 'competitive' (3.1 overall & my science GPA was significantly low ) and my Teas score was 89% but I had a pretty good supporting statement and in my opinion, that's what helped me the most. However, I wrote 4 drafts and had a good friend of mine who just graduated from UTMB proofread each one.

    Also, I didn't have any prior experience with nursing and my interviewer actually pointed that out and said he would have liked me to have some experience. So, those who don't have any experience, you could maybe look into volunteering at a local hospital or something of that sort and you could mention that in your statement, too. They want to know what you're getting yourself into and what being a nurse consists of and that you didn't just put a bunch of potential careers in a hat and randomly pick nursing.

    Good luck

    I was reading on the application website that the transcripts need to get accredited by another company? anyone else take this route? or do you do it through NursingCAS

    polysaturate - it's been a while since I applied, but I don't remember having to have my transcripts accredited by another company. I know most schools will use SPEEDE to send the transcripts to UTMB electronically, which is what UTMB prefers, but that's all I know.

    In my opinion, I wouldn't use NursingCAS, because of the delay. All your transcripts must be sent to them, and once your application and payment are complete through NursingCAS, only then do they send it to UTMB. And all this still must be done before UTMB's deadline. I got this from the NursingCAS FAQ website: Now, I could be reading it wrong, but that seems to be a pretty big delay.

    Q: When should I start the application process?
    A: APPLY EARLY! Submitting your materials early will ensure timely processing and help avoid delays. Once your application has a complete date, it can take 4 to 6 weeks for your designated programs to view your verified application in "real time" in their admissions portal. Your application is considered complete when NursingCAS has received the following:
    • Electronic Application
    • All Official Transcripts
    • Payment

I live in Houston and will be commuting back and forth ... anyone else doing this? Anyway here are my results from my tests! Good luck to everybody and hope you all have a Happy New Year!

    Teas Overall: 84.7

    I'm applying to UTHSC as well and got a 96% on the HESI. If anyone needs any help or advice through their application process I'd be happy to help!

    I hope everyone had a great christmas. Well I took the TEAS this week, and I was not happy with my scores. I feel like I did poorly I got a 76%... but the last time I took an english class was many years ago... and I cannot even remember when I last learned anything to do with Earth science, etc. I did great on the scientific reasoning and the human anatomy section. I don't want to retake this test.... Guess I will just submit with those scores and try to make sure my student statement stands out so I can get an interview..... Hope everyone has a Happy New Year

    Hemphia you did great on the TEAS! That was a super hard test! It is tough that the TEAS tests over courses we are not required to take! Besides their cutoff was 58% and you smoked that! Your grades are really good, I'm sure you will be fine! Keep your head up! I hope you have a Happy New Year!

    Hi Im new to the board and would love to go to UTMB! I was first considering the BACC2 program since I already have a degree but after finding out it is mostly online I have been thinking about doing the BSN program. Unfortunately, the deadline is Jan. 15 and I haven't taken the TEAS. There is a TEAS offered in Houston on Jan 14 by UTMB for UTMB applicants only. Im wondering if the test scores go directly to them? Or will it be too late for the fall deadline? I plan on calling them tomorrow but I wanted to know if anyone knew....Thanks!

    Hey guys! I was wondering if you guys notice a incomplete to do item on your application on mystar. Its called courses in progress. I called UTMB enrollment earlier and they told me that its for people that are still attending a college while applying to the university and it doesn't affect your application process. I was just wondering if anyone else has that on their to-do list.

    Hey guys! The application deadline is coming up so soon!! And I am getting anxious already! I sent in all of my required documents and app, so I've done all I can do now! My teas score was only a 75.6 so I'm a little disappointed about that. I start up the spring semester in about a week for prereqs so hopefully that distracts me from worrying about how long it's taking to hear back from utmb. Good luck to everyone applying!!!Oh and does anyone know about how long it takes after sending in my application to hear stuff about the mystar account so we can check the progress of our application?
