I've been at TWU in Houston for the last 2 days doing orientation. I ran across several folks there that were transfers from the Denton campus. I asked them why they chose to move to Houston to attend the nursing program when the same program was offered at home, in Denton. From their feedback--it seems that TWU students automatically get a "bump up" on their scores (TEASV?) if they're already a TWU student. That makes more students qualify for the nursing program. The more students that qualify increase the number of applicants. Therefore, in reality, it makes it much tougher to actually get accepted into the program because there are just sooooooooo many applicants for so few postions. Does that make sense? Also, in Houston, there are so many nursing schools, some of them within blocks from each other. The competition is literally right around the corner. Sooooo, basically, what the kids are saying--their "bump up" scores wouldn't cut it in Denton. In Houston, however, it was a different matter. Today, there were at least 5 or 6 Denton students starting the nursing program in my class. I hope this information helps you.
Wishing you the best of luck!
