    @tnuh: Your scores are great too! Don't think you have anything to worry about as well. When I talked to my nursing advisor she said generally the cut-off is around 3.5 gpa because of the amount of applicants, but you never can be sure either.

    @Laneerobinson: I took my HESI already and got 94% overall, 890 on critical thinking. If you haven't taken it yet, I bought the study guide book and that helped a lot. Some of the same questions were on the actual test, except that it doesn't prepare you for the critical thinking. Congrats to your sister, are you applying to TWU also? I am as my back-up but I have to take the TEAS this summer. What did your sister think about the TEAS?

    Yes, at UTA they only check to see if you have passed or failed, which is a good thing cause that vocab killed me...
    @svh040789: Which class would you say is harder? Pharm or Path? Do you have good teachers?
  5. by   svh040789
    Pharm Most Definitely! My teachers are great....Path - Stephens...but now it is Urban bc I think Stephens is retiring but Urban is great.Pharm - Laird she seems tough but she's hilarious and down to earth.You will have to study your butt off but it is definitely do-able.

    Do anyone of yall recieve financial aid? If so are you using any for your summer classes?? I get financial aid and put that Iw anted to take 6 hours in the summer and it didnt allow me to use any of my money for summer course. It onyl showed fall and spring!

    @MEGREEN: I recieve financial aid and I am planning on taking summer classes, but they did not allow me to use my financial aid money for it either. I have to apply for a loan and start a payment plan with them in order to pay for it.

    I already applied for a loan and it still didn't show for summer...:uhoh21:..UTA can be so confusing at times! Did you fill out the future enrollment form? MIne says 14 hours for spring and I am not sure why? I didn't put 14 hours....

    You have to get to "Walk in Wednesdays" EARLY!!! They start at 9 a.m. but you have to get there at 8 a.m. at least because they have a sign-in sheet with all the available advising times with your advisor (goes by your last name). Once those slots are filled, then they turn everybody else away. I drove from Houston that morning and arrived at 10 a.m. All the appointments were already filled! I couldn't control it, and just broke out in tears after driving 4 1/2 hours!! They felt sorry for me and told me to just wait and they would see if they could fit me in, fortunately, after waiting an hour I was seen.
