I'm only in my second semester of my freshman year at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, and have already declared my major in nursing. Being a male, I know that I will have a difficult road ahead of me, but have accepted the challenge with an open mind. Earlier this semester I found out that the recent change in my fathers job, is going to require us move to Houston, TX. Looking at the nursing programs within the city I have noticed that UTHealth is one of the top schools in the state as far as nursing standards go.
My question is, does UTHealth judge its applicants based on where they go to take their pre-reqs. Do they look at where you got your course work done more than they do your actual grades? As i'm sure most of you can relate, the college years are not exactly considered living lavishly, and being on a very tight budget, I will most likely have to go to a community college to complete my pre-reqs.

- Jan 7 by mbnoblezHey. I currently attend UTHSC. Will be in my 4th and final semester in the Spring of this year. Since UT Houston is a state-funded school, they prefer instate applicants. As for the actual grades, their prerequisite grades do matter. I took some of mine at a local community college so it doesn't matter if you didn't take them at a university.
- Jan 8 by oceaniseI took all of my pre-reqs at community college. It doesn't matter where you took them, UTHSC just wants you to complete them and get good grades. Saving money by going to community college is definitely a smart choice. Good luck!
