    I emailed my adviser looking for hints...I also lightheartedly slipped in the comment about my partnership nightmares like it was a joke and not at all keeping me up at night

    Hello,
    i just applied to go there in spring but i want to see how many of my credits actually transfer if i have to take a ton of gen ed classes i will probably look else where... do you know how long it takes for them to get back to you about it?

    @Sweetlilwolf
    I think you're going to have to do a transfer evaluation. I dont think that would take very long...If you took the credits in texas, texas has a 'common code', so if you took English 1301 somewhere else in Texas, it will be almost identical to a class at UTA named English 1301. If they have the same numbers, it wont take long to evaluate.

    @ Sweetlilworlf - txhopeful is right....UTA will do a Transfer Evaluation and will give you a summary of classes that transfer and ones that you will need to take, based on your transcripts. It should be pretty straight forward if your classes were taken in TX. If you have taken classes out of state (like me), then it is a little more difficult and you may have to "prove" that the courses are equivalent to get credit by providing syllabus info. This would be done AFTER the evaluation is completed by an advisor. If you have been accepted to UTA, then you should've been assigned an advisor. I would start by contacting that person.

    Hope this helps!

    Today is the 10th!!! The day of the "meeting" although I don't know why they needed to have a meeting when decisions were supposedly made on the 1st lol!!! Here's hoping that emails go out on Friday!!! (not holding my breath, of course!)

    nikkib376 - I have a good feeling that the email will be sent on Friday It will be the 12th - pretty much "mid-Oct", they can't make us wait longer than that, can they!? I emailed my advisor on Monday and still haven't heard back - guessing he was preparing for this "meeting". UGH! Don't they realize how agonizing all this waiting is! It's making me have OCD - constantly checking allnurses and MavMail, LOL

    So I heard back from my adviser this morning. I guess my partnership nightmare joke was too subtle a hint, because she didn't mention it. She did say this....' All qualified applicants for the Spring 2013 start date of the upper division AP BSN and campus-based BSN programs will be notified of whether or not they were admitted to the program via Mavs email by the end of October.Please feel welcome to email me if you have any more questions'I'm hoping that's just the stock answer and we find out on Friday. Kind of like when waitresses tell you your table will be ready in 15 minutes;it'll probably be ready in 5, but say 15 just in case....

    What a joke! I don't understand why they have to be so secretive about it - I am sure they know by now and have it all planned out when they will send the email.....grrrrr......frustrating!

    I know, right? How do you keep an idiot in suspense? I'll tell you later.

    So....I emailed my advisor on Monday, just now heard back. I specifically asked:

    "Is UTA any closer to sending out the email regarding acceptance to the program? I have heard that there is a meeting this Wednesday, so the letters will be sent after that?"

    The response was: "You will hear back about Spring ’13 acceptance this month. Let me know if you have any additional questions. Hang in there!"

    That is it?? I don't know why I expected anything different, but I thought, maybe....just maybe....wishful thinking I guess! This is making me think it's not going to happen Friday

    At least your advisor is encouraging, mine just sends indifferent robot emails

    Somewhat encouraging, yes, but definitely give canned/short answers without any explanation....and usually takes a long time to respond

    txhopeful12 - I saw on the spreadsheet that you know someone else from Parkland that applied for the AP BSN program. Can I ask what department you all work in? Has your friend also applied before?
