NET scores, GPAs, vaginal gel, and young adults glued to a nursing discussion board. Sounds like the making of a great movie.
Well, WHOOP for the vaginal gel! HA HA HA HA!
I applied for summer entry, and I guess, fall entry by default. And TWU is the only school to which I applied. I live just south of the metroplex, and I have a husband (with a job in Irving) and two kids who are at a fantastic school. It's just not feasible for me to move somewhere else for nursing school or to go to TCU or Baylor (too $$$) or to UTA (rude and unfriendly, in my experience). So, this is it for me. If not TWU, I'll have to go to Plan B.
Wish I had a CLUE what Plan B is!
I will be happy to get summer OR fall. I just want in... and I didn't apply anywhere else.
Great stats by the way.
Pardon my ignorance here! But how do you get a 3.98 GPA? Is it a 3.58 with a .4 bump? Just wondering how on earth you managed to miss the 4.0.
And, for the record, I think your scores will be just fine for summer. Praying to GOD I'll be joining you!
I really hope you're right! I wasn't too worried until I heard someone on here say there were something like 300-350 applicants for summer.
Are you applying for summer or fall or either? I think you certainly sound competitive for fall. I personally think...and I could be TOTALLY wrong, that unless you've got a GPA of 4.0 and a NET above 80...that with only 30 slots....summer is not very likely. I'm not very optimistic about summer myself. As for fall...you sound great with that GPA. Who knows how much emphasis they put on the NET, but wasn't the cut-off like 55 for that?
So, I guess not hearing means they could still ALL be letters of acceptance, right? I'm just trying to keep the attitude, that if it is meant to be, it will be. You know? As long as we know that we did everything we could to get in, then it really isn't in our hands anymore. "Que sera sera".
I bet you're SICK of filling out applications....and they are all sooooo different in regards to their requirements. You'll be in by fall....no doubt!
That's good to hear, because I do have a 79 on the NET. Unfortunately, I just missed the 4.0 GPA. My stats might get me into fall, but I highly doubt they'll get me into the summer program. Who would have ever thought that a 3.98 wouldn't be good enough?...lol Breathe.....just breathe....lol
Okay, that's one of the things I was wondering. I know they give a four-tenths GPA boost to those who have completed a certain number of credits at TWU but I was wondering if it capped out at 4.0. From the last post I gather that it doesn't, so some people can be applying with a 4.4. That scares me because I have a 4.0 but it's all from TCC and TCU so I'm really worried.
How bored are we from all this waiting? Maybe we should compare GPAs and NET scores again.....lol. I mean, you know...if there are more than 30 people on here with GPAs over 4.0 and NET score over 75, then I guess we know where we stand, right? By the way, congrats to all of you who have both of those things!
I unfortunately only have one of them. I hope it's enough.
By the way, that's just a criteria that I came up with...nothing official.
Ouch....300 applicants? All I can say is...WOW. I'm not sure which to be more stressed about the GPA or the NET?!
I heard Denton campus is a LOT of note taking. Upwards of 9-10 pages 2 class periods per week. Parkland is supposed to be geared more toward working people (with less note taking). It still sounds pretty tough, but a little more doable and only one day a week.
Yes, and it's quite a "leap of faith" considering I don't even know if I'll get in or not.
Are you aware of the fact that TWU also has a patho phs class at Parkland as well as Denton campus? Just an FYI.
