    I just graduated from UT Tyler......it is becoming more difficult to get into the program. Although, UT Tyler has 3 campuses....Tyler, Longview, and Palestine....so sometimes it is easier to get into the program at the other campuses. They really want you to have 60 hours of pre-requisites and pathophysiology......you just really need to talk to an undergraduate advisor at the university. I understand they turned quite a few away for the coming semester, but your GPA sounds pretty good.....good luck.

    Any idea what the point cut-off was for fall 07 or spring 08? I just applied for fall 08 and am curious if my points are competitive with what has gotten in recently.

    Just an update:

    I got in for spring '09 with 83.18 points (out of 100). Hope that helps someone.

    Hey woo83,

    Thanks for this information, i have been asking UT tyler advisors, especially renee about the lowest score last semester but it seems like they do not provide that information because they always say it varies.. Your response really made me feel good because I have 86.58 points and I am a second degree major. So I think I should get in. How do you find the program? I will be doing Patho, Concepts and Pharma at UTA then transfer to UT Tyler next January to start my program.

    UT Tyler looks at many things when considering you for the program. Having all your prerequisites are a must, but having other classes required really helps. From what I have heard and seen, the clinicals are still better at UT Tyler than at other schools. There is so much competition at the hospitals for students, it has been getting harder for the students to get clinical experience. UT is a really good school, I would recommend it. Good luck!!!!
