    I have applied to a few community colleges, and will be applying to TWU and UTA for Fall 2013, I'm just worried, because even though I have 3.93 GPA, I do not have any preferences, so. And last semester there were 802 applicants and only 98 spots for Dallas campus, so, that being said, lol, I am considering WCU for the same reasons you are. I am worried about all of the bad comments about the FA and admin. another thing, I do not know how I feel about taking the HESI or TIA at the end of every 8 weeks to exit the classes. That is crazy.

    I think we will get used to taking the Hesi; think of the positive side: it will prepare us for the nclex exam anyways

    I guess that is one way to look at it. So, what are you going to do?

    I am waiting for Uta first. Uta will let me know end of October onlyafter that I will make my decision because I also applied for WGU as a back up plan and WGU it is much cheaper than WCU. TCC is also an option ( but unfortunately is only ADN program , not a bachelor's).

    I am also waiting to hear from UTA. This whole process is nerve-racking! If I don't get in I'm definitely going with WCU .. I'm not waiting around another year. It is a little costly but I'm done with prereqs anyway. As far as the Hesi goes, most nursing schools test you after each semester anyways. I'm just tired odds waiting around.. something has got to give! We have worked too hard to just sit around. I go to a information session Friday I will share any new info! Good luck to all of us...

    I go to UTA but I am also waiting to hear back from other schools. If I don't get in then I will be attending WCU for sure. Yes it's expensive but i feel like I don't have any options just waiting around like this and I don't want to change my major. Y'all keep me updated on y'alls progress now. I'll be sure to check this forum often. It has helped finalize my decision.

    I went to an information session today..it is a nice campus! Each semester runs about 12,300 not much different than TCU. Plus if you have all the prereqs(most of us waiting do) your only going for 5 semesters which is about 80 weeks..about a year and a half. They require 2 classes you take with them...a humanities course and med terminology. They are accredited by CCNE and WASC and approved by the Board of Nursing. 9 weeks on and 1 week off so your in school all year and you get finished quicker. 92.5% pass rate for NCLEX, 76% is considered passing for each class so their not joking. I was sold today if UTA does not accept me...here I come WCU. 5 start dates Jan, April, June, Aug, and November. Think I hit the main points.
