Sam Houston State - Spring 2019 - page 5

As I was going through looking for threads of the programs I plan to apply for I didn't see one for SHSU Spring 2019 so I decided maybe I would go ahead and start one! I am currently finishing my... Read More

    Hey guys! I also applied for the Spring 2019 semester. I'm a former SHSU student, graduated in May with a B.S. in Biology and 93 credit hours taken at Sam so hopefully that will help me out with my application. Here are my stats:

    Pre-Nursing GPA: 4.0
    Overall GPA: 3.95
    TEAS Math: 97%
    TEAS Reading: 89%
    TEAS Overall: 90%

    Only thing I'm worried about is if I'm accepted how much financial aid will cover since I will probably stop working. Anyone know any good housing near the campus?
    Your fantastic scores combined with being a SHSU student will surely land you a seat I imagine, very impressive!
    I just moved to the area myself with my children and husband so I am of no help in the housing area unfortunately. Financial aid after receiving your first Bachelor's can be tricky sometimes I've heard, but hopefully it'll work out for you!

    I thought I had read on the website we should know within 45 days of applications closing but now I can't seem to find it. Others have stated we should know within a month of the deadline so that's what I'm hoping for.
    I'm curious as to if acceptances are sent out all at once of if they are sent it different waves.

    Hi everyone ! I'm applying for the spring Semester as well! Stats: Nursing GPA 3.85 Overall GPA 3.63. TEAS Math - 100% TEAS Reading - 86%. My scores are not perfect but I hope it's competitive enough to get me in! I have a Bachelor of Science from Stephen F Austin State University as well. I'm super anxious about decisions, but was told by the nursing advisors that we will have our decisions no later than 30 days after the application closes so we have two more weeks of anxiety !!! I also applied to UTHealth in the med center and prairie view a&m. So hopefully I get in somewhere!!!

    That's great that they confirmed we should know within the month! Although I would be absolutely okay with decisions coming out sooner, haha.
    I also applied to UTHealth, we'll be waiting a while for those decisions :/
    Which school is your first choice? Best of luck to you and welcome to the forum!!

    Right?! I'm not gonna lie, I've been checking my account in the off chance they'd follow the same trend this year.

    Sam is my first Choice!!! I would love to get into UT, but I have a one year old baby and a two year old toddler so I'm not sure how stellar I would do at an accelerated nursing program chasing after my little ones LOL. Also even with traffic it's only 30 minutes away from my house! I wanted to apply to TWU but I missed the deadline, so here I am lol ! Wbu?

    Has anybody gone ahead & done their BLS certification?
    I was going to try to ahead and knock mine out but when I went to register through the AHA website it asks for an institution. I'm not currently working in healthcare so no employment to put down & of course haven't been accepted to a program yet.
    Was wondering if anybody else ran into this and if so what'd you put?

    I'm still torn between SHSU & UT as for which one I prefer, I'll definitely be thrilled to be accepted by either! I have a four year old & one year old as well so I know the struggle! To make things more fun my husband is going through a huge career transition over the coming months as well, lol.

    I am DYING with this wait right now, I'm just ready to know something from SHSU since I know UT will take a few months...

    Yay!!! I'm so happy to see other fellow mommies going for nursing as well!! How long do you think we have to give SHSU our decision if we get in? We may find out an entire month before UT lets us know. I was told UT gives you 10-15 days to make a decision, will SHSU give us more time than that so we can weigh out our options?

    I got a email stating i had one missing information on my immunization record and they're giving me until the 24th to correct it. They said Incorrect HepB titer? Can anyone inform me what that might mean. As in are my results incorrect or did they draw the wrong lab?

    What titer did everyone have drawn for Heb B?
