    Who knows? I asked the admissions adviser but did not get a clear response. All I know is that last fall I was gathering my stuff together to start applying to the schools around here and UTMB had those extra prereqs so I didn't even give them a second thought for this year, but heard the rumors and checked the website. I have already turned in my stuff and they said I should know in about a month... what about you?

    They told me the same thing; that I would know in early March. I will keep you posted.

    Do you have any idea of the type of GPAs people at UTMB have? I have heard 3.2, 3.8, and so on.

    My friend that got in last year had a 3.68 or 3.69ish with a science gpa of 4.0... I am applying with a 3.8 but my science gpa is only a 3.5 so we will see... I know its just as hard as the other schools in the area to get into but they are not as focused on ONLY the gpa like other schools. I know the essay is a BIG factor.

    I am just so nervous. I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get in and so much is put on these applications and essays. It just makes me sick to wonder if I did enough or wrote what they want. It came from my heart so I guess thats all I can do.

    What kind of references do you have to have? I am thinking of applying here because I am applying to TWU and UT Houston but they are very competitive so I would like to have a third option. Can they be from anyone or does it have to be like one of a supervisor, professor etc?

    I just had three different professors submit letters of recommendation for me. You can call them to double check exactly who is eligible to write for you, because I don't know for sure.

    Anybody know how many guys are typically in each class at UTMB? I am trying to get a feel for how "man friendly" the different schools are, as I am one myself.

    So what is everybody doing about the CNA, patho, and pharmacology "recommended" courses?

    I have become certified as an EMT-B. I was thinking about just taking pharm and path the first semester there. What are your thoughts on this?

    Has anyone else been accepted or know when they are going to let those of us that applied in early March know?

    The last I heard 75 out of the 110 spots had already been taken (this was 2 weeks ago) and the next admissions meeting would be the first week of April.

    The wait is seriously killing me!!!!
