    Prayerful - First off Thanks!

    Just explain... They are really understanding about bad semesters, just explain in your personal statement whatever happened, be it you majored in Beer 101, family problems, financial issues, life in general. They know sh** happens. My first semester of college was BAD (as in F, D, C, W) I even told them that I had NO drive then, that the grades were MY fault. And then I didn't go back to school for 6+ years.... Believe me when I say they understand. Just take responsibility for your actions.

    Good Luck! Just PM if you have questions, etc.

    Hi, I sent in my application two weeks ago and I kinda have the same backstory of screwing up my first semester at UT in fall 2010. I actually also got a F, D-,C, and W because of family issues, lack of prioritizing time, and now Im paying the price for it. Since then, I have brought up my grades but overall my average is a 2.96 right now. I have already taken my TEAS test and got a 72% and I have snooped around in the fall 2012 utmb discussions and it seems as though everyone's grades are significantly higher than mine. I submitted my application through NursingCas and have not received a reply from UTMB yet as well, but Im sure it takes time to process. Since you are admitted, what advice would you recommend me in doing to get my application noticed/processed asap or stand out while I await the lond and dreadful time before UTMB replies?

    I have a question regarding the TEAS. We have to take the TEAS V correct? Did you guys register through the ATI website or the PSI website?
    TWU website says the cost of the test is $110. I am trying to complete my registration through ATI and it says it costs $65.
    What am I doing wrong?

    The ATI website says this:

    " UTMB at Test Center USA - West Houston, TEAS, Houston, TX
    5/29/2012, Tuesday, 9:30 AM-1:30 PM UTMB APPLICANTS ONLY!!
    Test of Essential Academic Skills V (TEAS V)
    as a prospective student at University of Texas Medical Branch.
    This test will be administered at Test Center USA - West Houston, 12651 Briar Forest, Houston, TX 77077 on May 29, 2012 at 9:30 am. "

    Does that mean I wont be able to send my scores to TWU?

    HELP!!!

    DEE1388- no this does not mean that you can't send your scores to TWU. This means that only people applying to UTMB can go to that test. So if you're only applying to TWU and not UTMB, they don't want you signing up for that test. The will probably (don't quote me) send your scores to UTMB automatically and then you can request it be sent to the other school as well. I believe that you can request a transcript for $15 each from the TEAS website. They're pretty quick about getting things to the schools.

    Thanks for your response! Do you know why the price difference? I guess I'm confused because TWU's website has instructions for you register through PSI and pay $110. But when you search for testing centers on the ATI website it gives you both options ( PSI for $110 and UTMB for $65 )
    I want to apply to both schools so I wanna be able to send my test scores to both.

    I'm not entirely sure about the price difference. When I applied we just had to go through the ATI website and sent it on after that. Im not sure if they've changed the procedure or not. I'd call the schools and see if it made a difference! better safe than sorry
