    UT Alternate Entry MSN Summer 2011

    You take it based on your knowledge and if you answer wrong it gives you the rationale to choose the right answer. It's very easy. Just takes FOREVER! Make sure you fill out the questionnaire at the end or you may have to redo it.

    They changed the summer schedule... It's this one (9 hrs). http://www.utexas.edu/nursing/docs/ae_foundation_program.pdf Also you can get a table that tells you for 9 hours in the graduate school of nursing is about 3,740 dollars. I emailed it to your gmail

    Thanks TXRunner, Sorry it took me so long to reply I can't give you specifics for what's competitive, you'd have to contact the SON. I can only give you my experience, but even then, it seems that these decisions are multi-factored. I am a strong student but I have worked heavily in various health care settings. Id like to think I have put in my dues. I had a couple Bs (only one B in science but I was working full time and finished my prereqs in like 9 months while working) but all As I think where it counts. I would focus on the personal statement, have a strong resume, deliver all your paperwork very professionally, meet nursing professionals in the area you are interested in, and/or have strong references from a health care job. (I even used resume paper for my personal statement- everything matched the way I would submit for a very important job). I wanted them to see how important it was to me. To show that I'm not just grades, I'm a well-rounded, professional. This is just my advice no matter where you apply. I think we just don't give enough credit to people who appreciate the small details that may be on a committee deciding your admission decision. I mean don't get me wrong, do well in prerequisites, just don't compare yourself to what you think other people have. I didn't do that great on GRE. But I'd rather not ask them why they chose me, I'm just glad they did... Sorry for the long spill... Good luck to you!
  6. Has anyone else been accepted to UT Austin MSN or Alternate Entry MSN? I am excited, are you?

    May seem weird but it's true. People who got into the program have been notified. There will be a second group allowed to enter in as "undecided" because so many qualified applicants applied this year. Those who expressed interest and flexibility in speciality are offered that second option. I was told about this option on my second interview. But that option has 11 spots out of 16. I'm guessing the rest(5) will be on a wait list.

    Hi everyone. I thought I would look here to see if there was anyone who had received a phone call. For me, I had a 1st interview and then a second interview a little later. I was told If I was accepted, Id receive a call, the beginning of February, so Im super nervous hoping to receive a call. I was informed of the specific number of spots for each program and it's SUPER COMPETITTIVE this year!
