    Hey hopefuls! Joining the thread a little late in the game but super excited for what we might hear in the next few weeks. Has anyone heard if they are notifying us by snail mail or email? Look forward to meeting some of you this spring.

    Bond i don't think you have a thing to worry about! Sounds like you are on the right track to me! There is no standard we should worry about because every semester is diffrent and they also consider the essay. The lady in the admission office said they will choice a group of student to test first and then is they have spots left they invite others to be a second pool. look like we were the first group for sure so be excited that you are in the front running. Good luck to you!

    Yeah...you're pretty much guaranteed with those grades. Unless you did absolutely awful on your questionnaire I see no reason to worry.

    Hey y'all, welcome to the board Cali and Bond James Bond (sorry, I've been shortening everyone's screenname). Bond, I concur, you're pretty much in to the program with grades like those, I wouldn't worry. I hear they'll be notifying us by regular old mail, but don't take my word for it because it seems as if this admissions process is completely different from their previous ones. ******** says they'll be notifying us early October, I'm hoping it's the first week. They should already have our questionnaires graded/evaluated, and they need to wait for the last persons to take the TEAS by next Monday. Anyone still need to do that? Well, here's looking forward to that aceptance letter...

    Thanks RN76! I hope they have already graded the essay/interviews. Glad to see other people as excited and hopeful as myself. The UTHSCSA website says that registration begins on Nov1 so i am sure that it will be early october so we can send in all of our vacinnations and pass our backround checks. This last week is very tough though!!

    To update you guys, I emailed Mrs. ***** about the Spring timeline. Here's what I got "We are expected to complete reviewing applicants’ credentials by mid October. We will distribute decision letters in late October. The semester will start on January 18 with orientation tentatively scheduled for January 8– 15, 2010. We normally hold one orientation day with students and their families and the another day just for students. More details will be provided once decisions have been made."

    So we're looking at late October now. Sorry to give your hopes up. Is it true that registration starts on Nov 1?!

    Registration actually goes on for awhile!! I think you have until before the first week of class to register haha...

    Don't worry too much about registration once you get in. They pretty much open enough spots for all of you to get into classes so they won't get full... Also your notification on getting in seems about right... if I remember correctly thats when I got notified also last year..

    Well thanks for the updates. at least we know that the decisions can be started now. On the bright side, finding out mid October is a heck of a lot closer then when i applied in mid May .
