    So I guess this means that you're def headed to UTA? Or is TWU still a possibility?

    THANKS SO MUCH!!! TWU is still an option, for sure if I get in. I really don't know what I am going to do if I get accepted to TWU as well because both schools really have their advantages/disadvantages. But I am just happy that I got into 1 for sure.

    well actually not...i emailed my advisor and she said there was a "glitch in the system" and, "at this point, we have not even processed your ap applications, so that letter was sent erroneously. i apologize for any emotional inconvenience the letter might have caused." now i need to call everyone in my family and tell them. great.

    you have got to be kidding me. how do they make a mistake like that? sending out acceptance emails when they haven't even processed applications? wow. and you had to contact them to find out? they didn't even get in touch with you first? that is absolutely ridiculous. i'm sorry.

    yah, thanks! I find it ridiculous that I had to contact them first. I sent her an email saying that they should have sent another mass email out apologizing.

    Hi goopsy,

    I did the same thing. I was super excited on Tuesday to find out I was accepted. It was such a surprise because my advisor said they would send out letters in November. I told all my family & then come to find out this morning it was an error. Ugh...it is so frustrating--so I guess now we wait a few more months.

    I have spoken to my advisor at UTA regarding the Academic Partnership Fast Track program and she told me that they have partnerships with Parkland Hospital, Baylor Hospital (Dallas) and Medical City. I haven't seen anyone mention those hospitals after reading through the posts. She told me that those students that did their clinicals at Parkland or Baylor had to be employees but that it was possible to come into the program "unpartnered" and then be assigned to a hospital (Medical City?). She said that Texas Health Resources would likely be included as well in the very near future.

    The biggest obstacle to coming in "unpartnered" is that the $16,000+ tuition is not eligible for financial aid at this time. However, I share the concerns that someone else expressed earlier that I would be contractually obligated to the hospital and have no choice in the area that they assign me to. I am not sure if this is negotiable with the various hospitals or not.

    I am shooting for Spring 2011 admission because I can't make the deadline for Fall 2010 since I won't have 12 hours of the required science prerequisites completed by the deadline. I am taking Chemistry and A&P I right now and will take Micro and A&P II in the spring. All I will have left after that will be the three Pre-Nursing courses at UTA.

    Does anyone have any idea what kind of GPA's that it will take to be competitive for this program?

    gonnabetxnurse,
    No I don't know what kind of GPAs are considered to be competitve since this is the first semester for them to start it. So how many of you guys actually applied for the fast track starting in the spring? I got a call today from UTA calling to make sure that I was unpartnered, which I am. They were tallying how many people are actually partnered vs how many are not. Good news...they said that we will find out about acceptance no later than the first week of November!! That's by Nov 6! I was originally told by the end of Nov.
