Got an email today from UTHSC that I've been accepted to the direct-entry CNL program! I'm super excited, as I was very nervous about applying for a master's program.
Has anyone else applied for the program and/or heard back? I'm finishing my last pre-rec, and was wondering if anyone else is still working on theirs. I'm also wondering if anyone knows a little bit more about the campus and the surrounding area (particularly whether it is safe!).

I am in the process of applying for the Direct Entry CNL program for 2013! I have a few questions regarding admissions! I am currently in my 5th year of college and will be graduating August 12th with my Bachelors. Even though I am graduating August 12th I will be retaking my A&P's and Micro in the Fall. I have already taken these classes but made C's in them my sophomore year. I really screwed up my freshman year due to the unexpected death of my best friend and failed most classes in 07. My cumulative GPA as of right now is a 3.08 and does not include the 3 classes I am enrolled in now (all of which I will have A's in) or the Science classes I will be retaking in the Fall. The deadline for applications is January 15th and I will have just completed those classes a month before. I am wondering whether I should take a chance and wait to send my application until my sciences are completed and chance missing the deadline, or do I assume they will take into consideration my coursework in progress and risk not being accepted due to my previous Science GPA being too low? In the past 3 years I have made nothing less than a B in any class and it is clear by looking at my progression that I am extremely dedicated to my studies. I have scheduled my TEAS test for early October and will be taking it on campus so that will not be an issue. If you could give me any information regarding your personal experience I would greatly appreciate it! I am so stressed out from applying! I would rather take the most challenging classes in the world than have to go through an application process like this! Any words of advice concerning my likeliness of being accepted?
Thanks so much!

I am not extremely familiar with the campus but the surrounding area is a bit rough. I went to Southwest at the Union campus for a semester several years ago and it was just a few blocks away! Just be aware of your surroundings and don't attempt to walk to your car at night by yourself or anything like that. I may just be paranoid but I'd rather be too cautious!
hope this helps you!
