    Congrats to everyone who was accepted... I wish I knew if picking your clinical sites had an impact on whether you are called up... I know I've seen several of you folks here that were accepted worked at Partner hospitals, and I'd hate to try to put Parkland as my #1 choice if all available slots will go to people who work there... Chances are there are more who work there then there are slots available...

    Sheesh. If only this wasn't so dang stressful...

    @ Don - I don't think it matters which hospital you select as the preferred hospital to do your clinicals. They will place you where there is availability if you are unpartnered and accepted. However, those that are accepted and partnered will be placed at the hospital site at which they are employed. I hope that makes sense.

    Wow, I am so glad I found this board! I was so disappointed last night when I got my "wait list" notification. It was all I could do to not just start crying, but it helps knowing I am not the only one. I keep trying to remind myself that God has a plan for me and he knows what he is doing, but it reallyo is hard to keep the faith.

    I really do think considerations have a lot to do with it. My overall GPA wasnt as high as some, but I had the 30 hour and the 3/4 science accommodations...I guess its their way of keeping the money from the pre-reqs.
    @txhopeful12 - Not sure what you mean by 3/4 science accommodation...that is one consideration I had not heard of? Just curious....

    @ MelTX2012 - Welcome! I know how you feel, this is my 2nd time being waitlisted....are you partnered?

    No, I am not partnered, although I would love to be with Methodist Mansfield. I may have to look at getting a part time position there if it would help! Yes, I have to admit this waiting is harder than it was years ago when I got my first degree - I guess that's part of getting older.

    If you want you can e-mail me and we can talk about our class that way. Don't worry about Google+ because only one of ladies of the class joined but she hasn't responded either.

    Recv'd my no letter finally. Disappointed but not discouraged. I may try other programs which is time consuming and more expensive. I'm determined to be a nurse. It's weird that there's nursing shortages but UTA is denying and waitlisting applicants. I don't understand. Well good luck and congrats to all!!!!

    tram444, I'm in the same boat. I live in Austin and I'm thinking the 3 hour commute is going to be too much. I'm strongly considering applying for the Fall 2013 for the San Antonio group. It's hard to turn down an acceptance offer, but I think a shorter commute will be much easier on me and my family. Look forward to hearing what you decide!

    Cheers!

    Curious if anyone knows what the clinical schedules are like? I don't live near the DFW area so I will more than likely have a 3-4hr commute. I was accepted into the BSN-AP today and was hoping the San Antonio hospital would be on the list as it's only an hour or so away from me. Does anyone know how many days a week clinicals are or if they have weekend only rotations? I am supposed to rank the hospitals in order of preference, any insight into how I should rank the DFW hospitals? I have a 4.0/4.0 and 96% HESI took all my classes at UTA and I am not partnered. Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone who is still waiting for a response.
    Hi tram444: I have some friends in the program right now and their clinical schedules are usually Fri/Sat, Sat/Sun, or Mon/Tues from 7am-4 or 5pm. They are always on two consecutive days. There are a couple of breaks in the clinical schedule between semesters. Hope this helps!

    I am sorry! I'm glad you still continuing to try, it will be worth it at the end. I still haven't receive any e-mail.
