    NursingCAS Finally received one of my transcripts I am praying that they get the other one soon!! How long did it take for them to calculate yall's GPA after they received the transcript?

    I have no idea what my GPA is, every time I calculate it I get different numbers. I have transcripts from two different schools. 3.44 and 3.27 I think... I just want to send it already!!! I really hope and pray I dont miss the deadline!

    i have completed my nursingcas application, still haven't submitted it though. i still need to send an updated transcript from this past semester. so taken from the ati website:
    this exam is for baptist health system applicants only!

    test of essential academic skills v (teas v) as a prospective student of baptist health system, on june 7, 2012 at 2:30 pm. this test will be administered at st. mary's university, one camino santa maria, san antonio, tx.
    this exam is for baptist health system applicants only!
    is this completely irrelevant and can still take this specific teas regardless of me not applying to this school?
    this is the exact same question i had when registering for the teas. the answer i got is utmb doesnt care where you take it, but twu (which i am also applying to) does. they want you to take the teas through psi so i had to register at a psi location it was way more expensive :/

    hi dee1388,once they get your transcript it takes less than 48hrs to calculate your GPA.

    Hi dee1388
    I also applied to TWU two days ago, and also sent my teas and transcript. Are you sure they dont accept the Teas which i took for utmb. because i alredy sent it to them. i hope they accept it because i dont want to go through the stress of taking the teas a second time.

    so nursingcas finally calculated my gpa and they said my overall is a 3.4 which doesnt seem right because i have had above 3.5gpa for most of my semesters in college. ughh i hope that gpa is good enough for utmb and they dont consider that too low. I take the teas june 12, and im freaking out because in the past me and the teas did not get along for the science portion!

    Yes, that's what they told me when I called. I talked to someone in the nursing admission's department and she said if I don't take the teas PSI they will not accept it. I did it just in case, but if you already took it i don't think they would make you take it again through PSI, it just doesn't make sense to me but I did it to be safe.

    Thank you! I am very nervous. I keep getting scores between 79 and 88 on the practice tests. How was your actual result compared to your practice tests?

    My scores were about the same! @barb24 how long did it take for you to get the supplemental app from UTMB after you submitted your NursingCAS?! I still haven't received one! Deadline is in 10 days!!! I'm getting nervous!!

    Hi Guys!

    I have been reading this forum, and just now decided to join. I've had a Nursing CAS pending application for a while, trying to finish my Statement so I can submit it... Has anyone else applied before? What are some good things to mention in my statement? I've been taking a mini-term and now started summer classes back to back... I'm kind of "numb" and clueless whenever I sit down and try to brainstorm. Help please =D

    Hey! I'm new to the forum but I am also applying to UTMB Spring 2013 semester. As far as NursingCAS goes, it took about 2 weeks for them to mark everything in as received and my GPA calculation came up a couple of days later. As far as the actual calculation, I feel like they came up short on my overall GPA. My calculations = 3.3 and their Calculations = 3.01 ...... I'm gonna need them to fix that or explain how they came up with it because I need just about every point (down to the tenths and hundreths of a point lol).

    I met with a counselor at UTMB last month, she told me that supporting statements are HUGE when it comes to deciding on acceptance for prospect students. There are a lot with lower-than-preferred GPA's (that's 3.0)...and to remain competitive one should type up a GREAT supporting statement, we are selling ourselves. She said it's not bad to have C's--as long as your GPA is high...but if you have a D-in their' eyes that's failing...so you must retake that class, AND If you have taken a class more than once, to replace grades or bring up GPA--it counts against you. Other schools will take your most recent scores for X class, but UTMB looks at EVERYTHING... =(
