    I did my interview last week. I thought they were really nice, and it was totally a relaxing environment.

    Does anybody know the attrition rate at UT houston? as in how many start versus how many finish the program?

    I heard UT houston is a great school. But you can't ever really tell until you go there I guess.

    I am not sure what the attrition rate is at UT but I know that after the 1st semester we lost 13 people either through failing out, deciding nursing is not for them, or reducing their hours. I am sure that we will lose more judging by how things are going this semester.

    UT is a great school but it does leave a little to be desired. Don't get me wrong I love coming here and every program (TWU and PV included) has its faults. UT seems like they are open to change. I really hope that they take the feedback that the seniors that are about to graduate has given them along with us juniors so that things will be a little bit better for you guys.

    Here's a tip for all of you waiting for your acceptance letters: I found out that I was accepted 2 weeks before I received my acceptance letter by checking my application status on UTLINK. My status had changed from "pending" to "you have been granted provisional admission" (I had 2 more pre-reqs to take and pass). Hopefully the same will be for you too. Good Luck to all of you guys and keep us posted!!

    I graduated from UT Houtson HSC in 1993. I enjoyed it, the Medical Center is an excellent place for clinical experiences. Back then there was no interview process or anything. Just applied and got accepted, although it took 2 tries and the second time around I applied to almost every nursing school in TX. The first time I only applied to 4 of the UT schools and didn't get accepted.

    Anyhow, enjoy your time at UT. I'm sure it has changed since I graduated. I had a blast in Houston. Thought I would live there after school, but traffic and too many people...Course, now I work in Dallas...

    Congratulations to everyone...
