    @stacie.michelle, mine did the same thing and I submitted my transcripts through Nursing CAS so I know that everything arrived. I am not overly concerned since they have confirmed receipt of everything over the phone with me. It is nerve-wracking though!! Good Luck!!!

    My mystar also said incomplete after saying complete for about two weeks so I started freaking out and tried calling enrollment services for two days and never talked to anyone.luckily I also sent an email and got a reply within the next day and the lady confirmed that they had everything they needed and my application was complete. So if you're mystar says something definitely call/email to make sure it is correct asap!

    Hey there Fall 2012ers!!!
    I am currently in the program that just started a few weeks ago. My class will be entering its 3rd semester as SENIORS when you guys start I wanted to let you know I will be popping in to help answer some of your questions you may have. From what I have read so far....

    I used the ATI TEAS V study guide actually directly made by ATI.... if anyone needs the link, or other info on it, just msg me. Just to clarify I had a 2.98 GPA overall, a 90.7% on my TEAS V and had about 13 W's on my transcript from when I was straight out of highschool. I did however have mostly A's and some B's in my RECENT pre-reqs... I messed up pretty bad right out of highschool, but explained it all in my statement! I think I had the lowest gpa going in....

    Paitence is the KEY to this application/acceptance process!!!! I know it is hard...I was JUST there less than 6 months ago! But seriously...don't try to figure out how they do interview invites or how they decide who gets invited first, second, so on! It will drive you MAD and I can guarantee no one will figure it out. They really have no rhyme or reason. As for trying to find out when they invites will go out, its a random waiting game as well. They will tell you all sorts of things if you call and or email. My favorite was, "Should be within the next 2 weeks.". Two weeks go by, and nothing...I call back, "Should be within the next 2 weeks." UGH. Seriously it will drive you MAD. So just try to stay patient, make sure they have received ALL the things you submitted (yes there was someone who had things fall through the cracks and didn't get an interview because of it)...then a couple weeks after you submit, you DEFINITELY want to call the School of Nursing to make sure that they received all your stuff from Enrollment Services.

    Personally I would not live in Galveston...esp if I had children. The school systems are not great, in my opinion. There are a few people that I know that have moved down there and are "OK" with it. But its all up to what the individual can handle. I commute from the League City area and its not bad at all. There will most likely be someone that lives near you to carpool with...if you like.

    As for the schedule... THIS COULD CHANGE FOR YOU, JUST TRYING TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT!!!! Classes for first semester are : Intro to Nursing, Pathophysiology, Adult 1, and Health Assessment. Ours is Monday 9am-3pm, and Thursday 9am-4pm JUST for lectures... then labs are every other week, Tuesday & Wednesday from around 9-4 for one and 8-1 for the other. Depends on your clinical group as to which day is the longer lab day.... then Clinicals are either the opposite Tuesday/Wednesday from 7am-3p or Wed/Friday from 7am-3pm OR every Saturday from 7am - 5pm. You DO get to request your top 3 choices as far as location and time of the clincal... nut no guarantees can be made. Some people got stuck with Saturday clincals and it wasn't any of their top 3 choices... its done on an online survey link that will open at a set time and its first come first serve. In the first 30 seconds we had 96 people already had in their requests....Almost all of them require you to arrive early at 6am or so, also, most require 'patient pick up' which requires to go to the hospital the night before to pick out which patient you will be caring for in order to do your research on that said patient for the following day. On top of all that they offer free tutoring sessions that are scheduled by them. We have Health assessment tutoring on Monday from 3:30-4:30 and Patho from 5:30-7pm, then Tuesday is Adult 1 tutoring from 6:30-7:30, then Patho again on Thursday from 4:15-5:45pm... SO its A LOT of on campus time. That doesnt even touch the 'required' readings for each class/module OR studying in general...

    I feel like I could go on and on. As questions come up, i will try to answer them. if there is something specific, please feel free to private msg me!

    Erika421- so do u know anyone that was accepted without even having an interview because of good grades and stuff?
    Sorry I didn't respond sooner! I haven't been on here in a while. To answer your question - yes, there were people who were accepted without an interview but it's very rare. They had to have a straight 4.0 with no withdrawals on their transcripts...and a few other requirements as well. I don't know of any in my class, but when I went for open house, there was a current student who got accepted under those terms.


    Any more questions, don't hesitate to ask! I'll make it a point to check this more often!

    So I just jumped onto my Mystar and now I am showing several To-Do's! I wonder what this is all about. It is showing "Courses in Progress", "Test Essential Acad Skill" (I took my TEAS through their ATI link up...), & "Transcript". So I guess I need to try calling to see what is going on with my account... I will also send them an email. I sure hope that this isn't a bad thing..........

    Ugh... I tried to post this once already. Let me see if it will post now......

    I just logged onto my Mystar account and saw that after the last few weeks my account has gone from complete to having several different "To-Do's". This sucks!! I guess I will be emailing them and trying to call them to see what is going on. My holds are as followed: "Course in Progress Transcript", "Test Essential Acad Skill", & "Transcript". What did y'alls say when yours changed? Oh I sure hope that this is corrected soon.

    First of all, a big thank you for all the information you've posted here on this thread---it helped me a lot on my application. Anyway, just like Hemphia and others with the same problem, I am too is having a problem on my application. About three weeks ago, I've received an email containing my username and password for my 'my-star' account, and when I logged in, it says that my application is complete. However, when I checked it today, my account has gone from being complete to incomplete. It says that I'm missing the TEAS(Test Essential Acad Skill) test. I don't know why it's missing because I ordered my test result to be sent to UTMB a week before the deadline(even got an email from ATI that they've sent my transcript to UTMB) so I am confused to why it was missing. Anyway, I will call them tomorrow and give y'all an update. I hope that our problems will be corrected soon!

    Hemphia,

    I could understand why it would say courses in progress or transcript but I agree with you your TEAS should not be on there. I would be blowing up their phone and email this morning and see what was up! Hopefully it is just a glitch!

    Alright everybody I have spoken to someone in Enrollment services. If your MyStar has changed it is because they have just processed your payment to your account and are now going to start processing everything. I was told it can take 2 weeks to update and show you as complete again. She was able go confirm that they have all my transcripts, but she was unable to see if they had my TEAS scores. She said that I could have them resent, so I had them emailed to her directly She said my account, once she gets them, will update my TEAS within a few days. Im glad she was able to help......THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Kdidit

    My Mystar also says that they are waiting for a transcript (well my TSI) but they said they could confirm this through my transcripts. But, I sent the transcript a week before the deadline so im thinking that maybe they just havent processed it yet....Hopefully.

    bluescript,

    You might want to call and make sure they are there! I have heard horror stories about transcripts not getting there on time. I actually submitted my transcript requests 13 times to my school and not one was sent out! Finally they sent them (after I went to the Dean) to UTMB and UT. My transcripts to TWU never got sent so I literally drove it to Denton and hand turned it in! If you need a contact at UTMB let me know and I will PM it to you!

    So I heard back yesterday on the email I'd sent the other day in regards to my documents. But the email, which I'm hanging on to just in case, says that they have everything and that my application is complete **phew** Now that this stress is done, I guess now i am just waiting hoping that I can land an interview (bc I know my scores arent high enough to be accepted without)
