    Thank you Calinative 84. I got by BS, I did specifically mentioned the accelerated program, I hope I am eligible to register my summer semester and graduate earlier then. It could be confused though.Again, thanks.

    There are some people waiting for UT Houston acceptance, and have already accepted from UTHSCSA. I know 3 of them. Still have chances for the alternates.

    Life is full of HOPE and SURPRISES.

    Congrats to rls74, starlight, and andan! Andan, I believe they only have a very limited amount of slots available for the accelerated program (something like 20), and after those are filled they may put people who applied for the accelerated program into the generic program. But like Cali mentioned, the program has been overhauled and therefore I'm not sure what happened there. Maybe a current student could answer this?
    Mims86, I had read in posts of previous semesters that alternates had gotten in to the program because sometimes this isn't the only school that people apply for and isn't there only choice. Hang in there, we may see you in January!

    I wanted to follow up on an idea that we has already been mentioned..... meeting prior to registration to get to know each other! I was thinking that maybe the weekend after Thanksgiving might be a good time after registration prep and thanksgiving break but before the holiday rush and since new years falls the weekend before registration. If not ... I liked AFmedx's idea of identifying us at orientation somehow.

    Getting my fingerprints done today! Can't believe we are only about 60 days away which I am sure will zoom with classs and the holidays. Happy Preping!

    Hey Andan, generic track is the regular 2 year program. Not everyone with a prior degree gets into the accelerated program (I was one that didn't), but because things are changing around here, who knows?

    I'll just reiterate to everyone - if you have a question, the best way to get an accurate answer is to call the office of admissions! I didn't, and I stressed way more than I needed to.

    Congrats everyone!

    I received my letter on Saturday. I also received my letters for UMHB and Texas A&M HSC in College Station. Pretty darn sure I'm accepting at SA though! Very excited to meet everyone!

    I may be of some insight as far as the accelerated issue is concerned, as I also applied for Spring 2010 accelerated. I was told today when I called the school that the accelerated program currently in place is "self-paced" meaning that you are a generic student, but you can accelerate the process by taking classes through the summer semesters. Naturally, this will provide an earlier graduation date, but it is not an accelerated cohort like the one they hope to start in May 2010.

    If I hear any news on that, I will be sure to forward it to the board. Congrats everyone!

    Hey Cali, I'm all for meeting up, maybe over a cup of coffee, to get to know any fellow students that want to attend a meet 'n' greet prior to orientation. From what I've read, the orientation consists of some icebreakers in order to get to know others. While I don't have a problem with this (I like to meet new people), I'd prefer to already know some people going into it. We'll play it by ear I suppose... Hey Kristy/AFmed, gotten anything yet? Once you get that acceptance, you're going to have to overnight your paperwork huh...

    Well, i was hoping for better news. Unfortunately, i was not accepted.

    Best luck to you all in the program.
