Alyssa33's Latest Activity

  1. While I'm not bipolar, I do have severe anxiety and clinical depression. Last semester I took 12 hours of science and math courses (prereqs) while working 50-60 hours a week. I could only keep the anxiety under control by taking 15-30 minutes a day to completely relax and do something for myself. No matter how stressed you get, just make sure you take time for yourself every day.

    Attention TWU Pre-Nursing Students

    Denise, As long as you take at least 6 hours, you are considered part time and qualify for federal loans. The only bad thing is that if you already have a degree you don't qualify for grants, no matter your income. Go to http://www.fafsa.gov to fill out your paperwork for federal loans. Be sure that you use the .gov ab. Not the .com, because it's free. You'll need your tax return. I suggest doing this as soon as possible, as all your prereqs for the nursing program have to be completed by February 1st, 2012 to apply for fall 2012 admission to the nursing program. Good Luck!

    Attention TWU Pre-Nursing Students

    I am finishing up prereqs at TWU in Denton in the fall and applying for Fall 2012 admission into the Dallas program. I will be taking APII, Bacteriology, Developmental Psychology, and Spanish. I am looking to form a study group this summer who would like to review/ prepare for AP and/or bacteriology. I live in Lewisville, but am flexible to meeting in the Denton/Dallas area. Also, I am a certified teacher with experience in teaching science, study skills, and math so I believe I would be a valuable asset to a study group. Contact me through the forum if you are interested. In addition, I figure that anyone who is applying to the nursing program for Fall 2012 at TWU could use this thread to communicate. Thanks!

    TWU Fall 2011 Hopefuls

    After speaking with advisors (I am transferring to TWU fall 2011 and only have 3 prereqs left), last semester's lowest gpa who got into Dallas was 3.4, but they had a near perfect score on the TEAS. I've also heard that GPA is less important than the first attempt in bio/math courses and your TEAS score. You also receive more points if you already have a bachelor's degree. Good Luck!
