    I wonder if people are having problems with nursing cas line me! Ahhhh!!! Lol they calculated my GPA finally and it's wrong :-( should I call them or talk to UTMB?
    i would call nursingcas first to see if they can straighten it out tomorrow and if they take too long call utmb so they can know before the app deadline

    Okay, this is the email I got back word-for-word:

    "To be responsive to the increasing number of students who wish to enter our nursing programs."

    Sounds like to me they didn't have a shortage, but a surplus of students who applied, and want to give them all a chance to get in. Quite the opposite of what we were all hoping, I guess. Hope this answers some questions. If someone can interpret this differently, let me know.

    I will be there :c)

    It may help that you have completed your prerequisites but I am not sure. I only have 50 hours complete but I also have a 4.0 GPA. I was short 4 classes that I am taking now to finish. What were your TEAS scores? I think many people feel like they are on a 100 point scoring system but that is not really the way it works. I only had an 82.7 and some people have higher scores than mine but I was told mine is really competitive.

    I thought the UTMB program application deadline was in line with other programs in the area. I still have a my fingers and toes crossed to get in though!

    Ugh that's upsetting news. I was really hoping that not enough people applied. Wishful thinking, eh? Hopefully those of us who don't have impressive GPAs managed to write personal statements that stood out and we score an interview!

    I mean my scores aren't that bad but I do feel like they are pretty average I have a 3.54 overall and a 3.8 science gpa, and I made a 79% on the teas. I know people say you shouldn't compare scores because a lot of it has to do with the person, but I'm just hoping its good enough! We shall see!

    Hi Megan,

    I apologize I know I'm on the wrong thread, as I'm applying to start for the accelerated track. However, I was hoping you could answer some questions for me. I have set up my interview time, and I feel as if I'm prepared, and your posts detailing the interview are comforting- but is there anything else I should know about the process?

    Also, about how long after the interview can we expect to hear an admissions decision. I know it differentiates for each applicant, but just kind of an about? I'm so very anxious and I hope that I am qualified enough.

    Thanks for your time!

    I signed up :-) the only thing is I have chemistry lab on Saturdays starting next week. If we don't have a scheduled exam on that date I will go. I am keeping my fingers crossed that a test does not fall on that date

    You can ask your interviewer if they have an idea of how long out will take to hear back from them. It depends on who you're interviewing with. Mine was straight forward and walked me through the admissions process. I was told 2-4 weeks and they were right on the money, but it really depends on when they can get the admissions panel together to review as a group. If something comes up, there might be a delay...it just never hurts to ask!

    Also, a good tip is to send a thank you email or letter post interview. Mine wrote back saying that they were meeting soon to discuss, which gave me a better idea of the time frame.

    Take a deep breath. All of the staff members are really nice and want you to succeed. Good luck!
