    Hey everybody! Been a while since I posted. Congrats to everyone that has been accepted, good luck to those on the wait list, and stay positive, those who received rejection letters. Persistence is key.

    I believe I was wait listed at TWU Dallas - my first choice (since I live in Dallas), so I know how those of you on the wait list are feeling right now. It's nerve wrecking - almost more miserable than waiting to hear back at all. We just need to stay positive and say our prayers! If I do get into TWU, I will be giving up my spot at UTMB - so don't worry, spots will open up! UTHSC-Houston also hasn't released all their acceptances, so people will be giving up spots left and right once they hear back from their closest/first choice school.

    To those of you that have been accepted - so far, all I have received is a request for proof of my meningitis vaccine, due November 1st. Is that all we have had to do so far?

    EDIT: Well. Looks like I probably won't be getting into TWU. I'm about 50 down on the wait list.

    I was referring to TWU - they can, yes. If you call the school of nursing, they will tell you. I don't think UTMB will.


    To those of you who area accepted - a few questions!

    Has anybody created a facebook page yet?
    What are our options housing wise? I'll be moving from Dallas, so I know almost nothing about the area!

    Hello everyone! I just had to join after getting such awesome information from all of you. I, too, have been accepted for spring 2013. I'm very excited for January to come around. Has anybody received their new student packet yet? I'm dying to get more details about orientation, signing up for classes, etc. Also, has anybody downloaded the required software we're going to need for clinicals? We're supposed to have a PDA or smartphone with the software. And one more question. I've requested to join the facebook group for our class. UTMB SON Class of Spring 2014, right? How long is the turnaround to be accepted into the group? I just sent my request yesterday but I'm anxious to read the wall posts.

    On another note, did anybody apply to UTHSC? I've read a ton of posts on that thread but nobody mentions having applied to UTMB. I haven't heard back from UTHSC but when I received my acceptance letter from UTMB, the deadline to accept was Oct. 5th. I had to accept, even though I hadn't heard back from UT. Were any of you in this same situation? Lucky for me, UTMB was my first choice. Looking forward to your comments!

    Hi Peller13!

    They are pretty quick about accepting the request. The mods on the page are students, so they add us when they get a chance

    No one has received their packet yet, we'll probably get it around the end of November. I think we get the info. about the software either in the packer or orientation.

    On the other note:
    I applied and got accepted to both UTHSC and TWU. Like you, I heard from UTMB first, plus it was my top choice, so I accepted immediately and ended up just formally declining the other schools whenever I heard from them. I've been lucky enough to meet students from UTMB at my local coffee shop and they really love the college and say the professors actually care for the students. So, it concreted even more that UTMB was the right choice!

    Congrats BTW!

    Thanks Sumokitty! I just got my request accepted to the FB group. I've been reading all the posts and documents, trying to not freak out about all the stuff I need to do. I feel behind already!!! When did you get your acceptance to UT? Just curious since I hadn't heard anything yet. Looking forward to meeting you and all my fellow classmates in January!
