    I also wonder how much the HESI scores are weighed in the decision process.

    My HESI scores weren't that great. I'd heard that as long as you had the minimum score required that was all it took.

    I am partnered w/ Cook Children's. Got accepted to both programs today. 4.0 in science, 3.7 other, 97 on HESI. Was waitlisted for this past Fall. If this is your goal, don't give up, just find out what it takes to make it. You can do this!!

    I am wondering how many accepted have previous degrees and if that is playing a factor? I know some who have gotten in without one and others who do have a previous degree.

    I got into both programs as well and I have a 4.0 GPA at UTA in all my science courses, an 89 on HESI, and I have a previous degree from TCU with a 3.7 overall with Honors and I am partnered with THR.

    Dont give up! I work with people who didnt get in the first time and did the second time. I think the key is to get partnered! I had to take a 50% pay cut in order to get a position to get me in better hopes for this program. So I hope that helps. Keep trying and be persistent! You can do it!!

    I was not partnered for Fall and got waitlisted. Partnering is definitely key. I do not have a previous degree.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you on the waitlist!Hopefully people have accepted else where so waitlist will open up!

    Agree that partnering is key and with so many facilities partnered I hope everyone has luck finding a spot at a facility!

    Also, for those who were not accepted: I know numerous people who were not accepted the first time and kept at it and were accepted the second time around so reapply!!

    Has anyone been accepted that will be partnered with Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview? Has anyone been asked if they were willing to commute to Longview (East Tx)? Just curious. I haven't recieved a letter yet. Still waiting impatiently. This has been the longest 17 days everrrr!! I've been waiting on this letter since November 1st.

    I was accepted into the traditional program. My overall gpa was a 3.7. My science gpa was a 4.0. I did not have any special considerations. Now, I only need to get through pharm... The professor I have is ridiculous...

    @SA423, Your Hesi score is not a factor, as long as you pass it.

    @Judy. I don't think that matters as long as you are enrolled in the classes and will complete them before nursing school starts. I am currently taking Intro, Patho, and Pharm. I will be finished with them in mid December.

    No, your current classes have nothing to do with being on the waitlist. As a waitlisted student, you MUST reapply just as you did this time. No carryovers.
