    You'll be taking yours at the general services complex right? i took mine there also....you'll receive two dry erase boards, a couple dry erase markers, and an eraser. You won't have pencil or paper...you're not allowed to bring anything inside the testing center besides your ID. Hopefully that helped you!
    yes, at the general services complex. thanks for letting me know! are you a student at a&m?

    The critical thinking section is required by TWU. I called numerous time to confirm this. They said it is calculated into composite score. I wanted to know if it is averaged into composite score and how...????
    Oh okay, well i took all of the sections...i'm not sure how they'd calculate it into the composite score though. Have you tried emailing the nursing advisor?

    Yes, I'm a current student there. if you do bring something (like a snack or a bag) they'll give you a locker/lock/key, to put your things in. good luck! :wink2:

    ATTN: For all you guys sending in your transcript in this week, on the outside of the letter if your mailing an official copy yourself MAKE SURE YOU PUT "Quick Admit" After "TWU Student Records" when your are writing TWU's address so they know which ones need to be put in the system now. I overnighted my transcript last thursday,and before I mailed the woman told me to put Quick Admit and they got ir in yeserday! Hope this helps anyone.

    i would call if i were you. to make sure all of your transcripts have been received you can look under MY INFO on pioneer portal and then transcripts will be on your bottom right after you log in again. a few of my classes weren't on there so i called yesterday and they updated it while i was still on the phone. so i would definitely suggest calling if you want to make sure, they don't seem very speedy when it comes to email responses.

    i'm currently a student at a&m as well, good luck to you! too bad the a&m hsc nursing program only admits in the fall

    If it's not too inconvenient, I would suggest trying to make an appt. with an advisor at the Denton campus. They are very nice, and both times I have gone I have gotten the feeling that they appreciate prospective students making the effort to come in. That way you KNOW for sure that everything is right. Minimally, I would call. Pioneer portal does not seem to be a great indicator of what they have/do not have. Good luck!

    Actually A&M is admitting for spring 2010 but that is for the accelerated program. if you're interested, they will be opening their application sept 1 and everything is due by oct 15. Their generic program starts in the summer (july), not in the fall. They do not have any programs that start in the fall.

    you are correct, i don't know why i said fall when i know they begin in the summer. thanks for the info about the accelerated program, but i'm class of 2011, meaning i won't be eligible for any accelerated program by the spring.

    did anyone take the HESI for TWU and UTA?
  11. by   ali523
    i'm not sure why you wouldn't have critical thinking if you registered for the test the way they told you to....i had critical thinking on my test today. did yours say Texas Woman's University on the top the whole time you were taking it?

    Goopsy, That's weird when I took the HESI A2 this summer for TWU it had critical reading shown for me. =/
    I took all of the sections that were listed on there. But I do see what you are saying because on the TWU nursing website it never mentioned critical reading, so I would ask them about that and see what they say.

    thanks! I urge anyone who took the HESI A2 and did not have the critical thinking portion on their test to contact his/her respective advisor at the Denton campus to make sure your test is eligible for consideration. My advisor told me today that the Dean has thrown out applications already for the Spring 2010 for those who do not have the critical thinking. This is a serious issue. I think Kimmy mentioned she did not have a critical thinking portion.
