UTA Fall 2013 - page 17

I thought I would start a thread for those applying to UTA for Fall 2013; AP or on-campus. I will be applying to both and am hoping to find a job at a partnered hospital before the January 5, 2012... Read More

    I was just playing around on the CON website and took a look at the calender. Apparently, an admittance decision may not be made until July. I don't think I can wait that long!! It is listed under AP BSN Program Start Dates:

    UT Arlington | UTA | Online Degree Programs | Calendar | Undergrad
    I wonder if that could be our deadline to accept. I know if you get accepted you have to turn in something that states you are going to attend. I can't imagine them making us wait until July.

    OH, I didn't think about that. You're probably right.

    I applied for the Fall 2013 semester. I was waitlisted for the Spring so I reapplied.

    I applied for Fall 2013. My first time applying. I took both History classes at UTA. They were not bad. Just busy work. Got an A in both, you'll do fine. (Oh, and every week they give you a ton of documents to read, videos to watch, etc. (I usually did not read most of the online documents; I just read the assigned readings from the books bc they bombard you reading material. But watch the videos bc often times, quiz/test questions come from them. Or at least they did when I took the classes.) Good luck!

    So did any of you all take the online 8 week course for A&P I at UTA? I am utterly surprised at the amount of work involved - officially starting the class tomorrow but I spent last week trying to get ahead...I read chapters 1-3 and it pretty much took me about 4-5 days - those were some long chapters! Did you all read the material in the text book? Or, did you review the notes and watch the lectures only, or all the above? Just curious - because I can see that this class is going to be like a full time job and thankfully it is my only class for these next 8 weeks!

    I am nervous about learning about the bones and muscles in such a short amount of time! I can see that quizzes and assignments are going to be easy but nervous about the exams because the professor even says they are really tough and CLOSED BOOK!

    I took both A&P's online at UTA. They were a lot of work. I pretty much read everything, but focused more on her notes/powerpoints. I studied for hours every day. The quizzes and exams were kind of tricky, but the labs and lab practicals were easy. The final is cake...she reuses the exact same quiz questions.

    Oh really, the quizzes are tricky too! I was planning to take my first 3 tomorrow, but maybe I should study more or maybe I will take one and see how it turns out and how to prepare for the others.

    Do you know if we have the quizzes to print out afterward? I can see that I will need to study for hours everyday! Yikes!

    Well, I always found like one or two questions that I did not know how to answer, but you have 45 minutes to look up 10 answers, so you should be fine. Yes, I printed up all of my quizzes, labs, exams, practicals, etc. Keep all of your quizzes in one folder and save them for the final.

    I just took the first two quizzes and was surprised to find I only had 10 questions to answer in 45 minutes. I found the first two easy, with a couple of tricky questions. I was easily able to verify my answers thank goodness!!! I am about to take the 3rd quiz. I know as I get into unfamiliar territory, in the next 2 chapters (tissues and integumentary) it will be more of a challenge.

    Thanks for the info Violach!!!

    Has anybody heard anything about THR no longer being partnered??? UTA would only say that THR made some changes! This changes everything and I may have I look into additional schools. Ugh......
  12. by   lharvick
    They probably just switched around which THR hospital they considered as partnered. I'm pretty sure last year there were only 3 or 4 THR hospitals considered out of all the locations. I know THR Cleburne didn't make the list and that's where I was at last year. They should provide the list for you like they did last year. I don't understand why they would hold the information from you. You might want to try contacting someone else in the department.

    Emailed THR. I was told by UTA that THR applicants are no longer considered partnered when they apply. Not that my hospital was not partnered... THR as a whole is not partnered! Big change and I am not the only one freaking out here. Not being partnered makes a huge difference
