    Well because I have a mediocre GPA I definately like the idea of not solely being judged by that single aspect. I read up on previous posts from students who went through this last year and it seems as if we are not going to recieve any correspondence from UTMB for a while (late august - september) after the app deadline.

    I've been emailing an advisor back and forth, and that's what she told me too! So it gave me some hope! My GPA is horrible in my eyes (2.92 overall and 2.98 pre-req) I've never got a grade lower than a C, just A LOT of B's But I got a 84% on my TEAS test and was told by a friend who is currently attending UTMB, that my 84% is really good! I am hoping and praying my personal statement sells me!!

    Futurepedrn22 - That is a VERY good TEAS score. My overall TEAS score was only 74% I thought about retaking it but I'm not sure if UTMB only accepts 1 score per an application period. I do know that the TEAS deadline has been extended to June 30th for those who still havent taken it.

    A 74 is good also!!! Remember you needed to get a 58% lol! Taking the TEAS test was so draining! I'm not sure how many times you can take it for UTMB! I would definitely ask an advisor before it again! Did you review and prepare for the test?

    Hi zyb817,
    I think 74% is definitely a very good score. If u check the last trend before this you will see those with less score than you, who got admitted

    Good luck! Let us know how you do!!!!
    I just took it and I feel pretty good about it... we'll see. They gave me a paper that says my scores will be available online in 48hrs. Does it really take that long?

    They told.me three days but they were ready in two! So that's about right!!!

    I bought a McGraw Hill 5 prep test for TEAS study guide and practiced it 2 weeks before the actual exam date. I really wish I would have focused more on the science portion but that particular study guide was really good and I'm sure without it I would have failed.

    That's what I used also! Its amazing in preparing you for the TEAS I believe
