    that's awesome! i suspect there are a number of us with similar plans. i've found that a good amount of potential nurses have higher aspirations than people expect.


    but first, we must get into nursing. roadblocks, roadblocks...

    Do you guys see how many people are on the thread...24. only 5 are members. There are a lot of people who applied who I guess are too shy to join the thread. A lot more than I thought.

    I posted this before, but it means more now that we are in crunch time:

    I just looked at the Spring 2009 thread. Supposedly:
    1. letters were mailed out on nov 3.
    2. someone on there got an acceptance letter (thin envelope) in the mail on nov 4 to the Dallas campus. She had a 3.609 so with the .4 bump it was 4.0 GPA; NET was 64% for the reading comprehension.
    3. Another acceptance letter on nov 4; GPA=3.9 and NET=81 for Dallas
    4. someone else got a waitlisted email on nov 4. GPA=3.5 and NET=79 for Dallas and Houston
    5. another person got a rejection letter on nov 5. GPA=3.7 and NET=67 for Dallas
    6. acceptance letter on nov 5. GPA-3.93 and NET=70 for Dallas

    I know there is more info about houston, but I havent read that far yet.

    i just finished reading that thread a half hour ago. i don't think there's anything else that's helpful there... i did find the whole _me_/.4 bump thing awkward.

    that thread only goes up to page 39, i think. i hope that princess wannabe girl got into a program.

    The instructor I had gave good assignments and reviews that were very helpful in preparing for the tests. Also, the quizzes on the disc that comes with the book was a good resource for preparing for the tests.

    Thanks for getting that information together!

    I just wish we knew FOR SURE how they are using the HESI scores.

    So... the NET obviously counted when you look at #4 and #5. #5 was rejected with a HIGHER gpa and LOWER NET, while #4 was waitlisted with a LOWER gpa and HIGHER NET. The HESI has to count for something. I am so confused by what that asst dean told multiple people about how if you have a 75 on the HESI it doesn't matter how high you score.

    Does anyone else feel like they are going to puke when they open the mailbox? I almost hurled in the street checking mine just now, and I pretty much knew there wouldn't be a letter today. I think I am going to have to have my husband open mine. My nerves are shot. Bleh.

    Okay I have been lurking this thread for a while now and forgot my login. I was hesitant to comment because I find it more nerve wrecking for me, but I couldnt resist. So I have been anticipating just like everyone else on here. There is so much confusion of what will happen as far as acceptance/rejection letters/emails. I sent an email on Monday and the response I got was

    "Please continue checking your TWU email address for any questions/concerns that TWU CON may have regarding your application. Otherwise, decision letters will be sent out by the first week of November."

    My question was asking when we would find out any status because I want to use my VA benefits and want to get that process started ASAP cause I dont know how long it would take. I was hoping to get a clearer answer using that but nope nothing different from what we have already be hearing and reading on this thread.

    SO I have been gone all summer and didnt agonize like everyone else, but this last few weeks have been soooooooooo long.

    anyhow good luck everyone!!!

    Are you hoping to get into the weekend program or regular program?
  12. by   achoutx
    if you are referring to me I am hoping for the regular Houston program. I read on the website that the Houston location is no longer doing fasttrack, so i am unsure if this means 2009 was their last class for fast track.

    achoutx,
