    Sounds like a lot of us will be commuting! Anyone else have kids?
    I have two kids who will be 5 and 2 when nursing school starts. I'll be commuting from Friendswood.

    Does anybody know when they will start calling people in for interviews? Or when is the latest that we would know for sure if we got accepted or not? I know that UTHSC said that the latest letters should go out is in April. That is promising from them. They get out the acceptance/rejection letters within a few months from the deadline date.... but UTMB didn't even start interviewing students for the Spring until September or October. Their deadline date is much earlier for the Spring, it was in June, than UTHSC, yet technically it took them longer to decide. I have registered to attend the UTMB info session on Feb 11, hoping to find something out.

    FYI - I would be commuting from Pearland, and I have a 2 year old I have a friend who got in this Spring.... He says that there are a LOT of people who are coming from ALL over the area.....

    I have a 6 year old son and i will be commuting from southeast houston/pearland area. i may actually consider moving to galveston if the rent is a good price so that i dont have such a long commute. i am not sure if the elementary schools there are good or not so that will be the deciding factor for me probably. does anyone know about the elementary schools in galveston?

    Wow there are a bunch of us moms! My little one will be five in May and starting kindergarten in the Fall. I waited until she went to school to apply so that I wouldn't have to pay daycare! It will still be tough commuting back and forth but we'll make it work!

    Does anyone know the graduation date for the class starting in the Fall? Would it go thru summer and finish in December of 2013 or does it give you the summer off and you graduate in Spring 2014?

    They don't have Fall graduation. Their program graduates in Spring, so we would graduate Spring 2014. They dont go through summer if you start in the fall, but you can lighten the 3rd semester by taking some of those classes over the summer I believe. I'm actually registered to attend the info session on Feb 11.

    @readyforutmb...I have no idea how the schools are in Galveston, but I can tell you that my kids have been in a variety of different schools due to numerous moves. Your child should be fine for two years or so no matter where he goes to school. We moved from a very small (much easier) school district in the Austin area to Katy ISD 4 years ago, all of my children are thriving and doing great...they range in age from 10-16. The biggest thing is to make sure that your son is reading proficiently next year and that his basic math skills are good. Those will take him a long way! Good Luck to everyone!

    @jaybird2009, I see that you are on this board and the UTHSC board. Do you have a school preference? Do you live in the Houston area? If admitted to UTMB are you planning on moving there? Good luck to you! Your scores look very competitive!

    First choice is accelerated at UTHSC but Fall Pacesetter is easily gaining as #1 choice. UTMB is favored only in that I think I think it is a cool campus and I like the vibe of Galveston but as a single mom I cannot take that much time off from work so I need speedy programs so I can quit work and fly through and get back to work. I live in the loop and own a condo so moving would be a huge hassle but not altogether out of the equation. I honestly thought that when I started pursuing this that I had little chance of getting into UT but I am feeling a bit more confident that I have a chance. Trying to be optimistic and realistic. I even applied to UT in Tyler where I could move and have the help of my family. So, I have applied for technically 4 programs at 3 schools. Tedious process.
    What are your preferences?
