I had my interview for UIW on Tuesday. Teas: 84. Math and science GPA: 3.67. Overall GPA: 3.34. Overall kinda low because I took Ochem and Bio 2 and got C's in them. I was previously pre-med at Texas A&M in College Station. They had called last Friday for an interview. Hopefully interviews are only this week and we find out Friday :-( BTW I also applied to UTHSCSA!

Was the interview long?

Also I am not familiar with the UIW program. How is it that you have heard?

Mine was about 15 minutes long. They are usually 10-15 minutes long. Uiw just had a 100% passing rate for the NCLEX. Their curriculum is spread over 5 semesters because they have an ICU core class compared to other schools who treat it as an elective. They only accept about 60 students each semester. It is a pretty great school with awesome staff and faculty. My mom is a nurse and said she noticed a big difference in the students who were doing their clinicals from UIW vs. UTHSCSA. Uiw students seem more engaged. I heard UTHSC was on probation about 2 years ago because of their low passing rate. However, they recently changed some things and now their scores have gone up.

Af05 Did they call you for the interview or sent you an email for an interview?

I haven received any type of contact for an interview. I attend UIW and I was told the interview was necessary for any additional questions they have to ask you from your application
