    i am in the exact same situation...i'm not sure what to do!
    ditto here... does anyone have any info about TWU-H VS UT-H? I actually like the idea of 4 consecutive semesters with UTH but other than that I'm at a loss. I haven't done much research to actually pick one or the other because I didn't want to jinx myself! Since TWU's accept/decline deadline is so close to UT's decision, I better start looking just in case.. BUT even if i don't get in UT, TWU is fine with me! =D

    i loved the idea of UT's 4 consecutive semesters as well, but last week my best friend was diagnosed with cancer so i think i'm leaning towards TWU just so i can have the summer off. i'm not really sure why but i've always wanted to go to UTHSC over TWU

    Ali, i'm sorry to hear about your best friend. I pray for the best for your bf and everyone around her!

    Yeah, i feel the same about UTHSC over TWU too. I graduated from UT Austin, so it may be just UT pride even though they are not really related, lol.

    thank you! i really do appreciate it! i think the reason i wanted to go to UTHSC is because I had a really hard time deciding to go to A&M or UT a few years ago, in the end i chose A&M, and even though we may be "enemy schools" i definitely respect UT's institution so if i can't have my degree from A&M i want it from UT (even if it is UT Health Science Center)

    I have to agree that I like the fact that there are no summer breaks. I am so used to summer school at this point that I am like why not?? Hopefully this does not come back to haunt me lol. I currently attend UT Austin so although they are not directly related I tend to lean towards UT Houston. I just dont want to make the wrong decision

    Ali I am so sorry to hear about your friend! I have witnessed cancer up close and personal with several family members. There is no doubt your friend is very grateful for your presence in their life as well as your loyalty.

    I am going to try and get more information from UTHSC...if there is a way they can notify us earlier or possibly tell us the date they will be changing the admissions status online. I have a feeling it will be before nov 15th for sure...I am really just rooting for before the 9th!

    Either way...both are great nursing programs!!

    Congratulations to everyone who got in, I'm so excited for all of you!!

    I still haven't received an email for Houston or Dallas I am wondering if there is some kind of error or what? My GPA is a 3.92 and my HESI score was an 82 with an 850 critical thinking score. I would think that would have at least qualified me for Houston.... any ideas? I'm totally bummed.
    lhojo, I would call on Monday to see what is going on with your application. Check the mail today just in case to see if there is a letter; maybe they messed up your email address? Last semester, there was a similar situation in that the person had the stats, but the advisor messed up the GPA. But they were put first on the wait list, so when someone rejected TWU, they were first to get in. They were accepted quickly after that.

    I was accepted to both UTA and TWU, so this is my comparison list; I'll share so it helps you and maybe others. I made it last night with my husband.

    I will compare:
    1. NCLEX pass rates
    2. Cost of classes per semester or cost of classes for 4 semesters (whichever one I can find)
    3. Curriculum: what classes are taught at TWU that are not taught at UTA, and vice versa.
    4. Distance and time driving from home to school
    5. Is the school accredited?
    6. Where clinicals are taught at; small towns/small hospitals will not get good "cases" or as many patients whereas big towns get good "cases", if you get what I am saying.
    7. Is there a ranking for the school?
    8. What is the job rate for those who graduate and actually find a job after graduation?
    9. How many hours per semester I would end up taking at each school?
    10. How long the entire program is.
    11. Cost of rent of where I live now vs. cost of rent of where I would live if I moved
    12. What is the location like of the school? Is the school in good condition (you don't want to be learning in a crappy, run-down location).
    13. What is an advantage that each school has over the other (like UTA has the smart hospital, TWU does not).

    Hope this helps!

    Sure:
    GPA=3.811 (with no 0.4 bump; retook history 1 and 2 and gov 2 for A's since I had B's)
    HESI A2: 89 composite with 800 critical thinking score.

    Word of Advice: REGISTER TO TAKE THE HESI FOR TWU. THEN TRANSFER YOUR GRADES TO ANOTHER SCHOOL IF YOU NEED TO. TWU will not take the scores for/from another school, even if the sections are the same.
