by B_jackson B_jackson (New) New Student Pre-Student

The application deadline is coming up soon! I’ve already submitted my application earlier this month.

Stats:

Overall GPA: 3.39

Prereq GPA: 3.5

I have my associates and a BLS. Other than that I have no healthcare experience.

How is everyone feeling? I’m super anxious even though we still have a while until we hear back.

Hi! Me and my friend applied for Traditional BSN at UT for Spring 2021.

My stats:

Overall GPA : 3.65

prereq GPA : 3.4

I am very anxious as well, I did couple hours of volunteering at University Hospital and got my associate in Biology but that's it.

let's keep each other updated!

Good luck! :D

How will we know if we got in and when are they going to let us know.

I believe they first look at all the applications and they pick around 130-140 students for an interview. And after that they will send acceptance letters. I’m not exactly sure when they send interviews/acceptance letters! I just hope we can all get in 🙏🏼❤️

I am so excited! I’m so grateful for this experience. I’m sure almost all of us will get in ❤️.

I was told that we should be hearing back sometime in September for interviews and October for decisions. I'm not sure if there will be a delay this time around since they waived the TEAS.

I'm so nervous to hear back, UTHSC is my top choice. Do yall know the types of questions they ask during the interviews? I looked around and I can't find anything

WOW!! That’s just around the corner! I’m super nervous yet excited! Do y’all know if this semester will be more competitive given the fact that the TEAS was not required?

From previous threads, I have heard that they are simple questions such as; about yourself, questions in how to handle situations etc. I’ll try and see if I can find something. But regardless they say that you will be able to skim through it & practice before recording yourself.

I'm more than positive there are more people that applied than usual. More people don't want to enter the field anymore due to the pandemic, so schools have been lowering their standards and extending deadlines.

UTMB extended their app deadline 2 or 3 times and now there's over 1,500 applicants (700 more than usual). I'm pretty sure the applicant pool at UTH-SA is in the 500-700 range 🙄

Hopefully, we do hear back around September and October, there might be a delay due to the pandemic.

Thank you for letting me know about the interviews! I thought it would be set up to where you would have to answer questions on the spot. Takes the stress away knowing I can at least practice before recording and sending it off

No problem! ❤️
Yes, that’s what I thought that there will be more people applying. I wish they could add more spots! But let’s hope for the best!
Do you leave in San Antonio?

No. I live outside of Killeen, so about 2.5 hours out

Hey yall! I applied for the Spring 2021 Traditional BSN program and I'm so excited 🙂 My prereq GPA was 3.7 and my overall GPA was 3.6 I have been working as a PCA at Methodist Children's Hospital for over a year now and I have been volunteering at Methodist Hospital for a few years now. I'm super anxious to see if I get in, hopefully we all do!

Hey Loves 😊

My overall GPA is a 3.78 and my prerequisite GPA is 4.0. I have been a full time caregiver for 2 years. I live in San Antonio as well. I would love to get to know you ladies better. After all we may be future Nurse sisters ❤️

Hey Ladies

I called the school today and the lady who answered told me it will take a minimum of three months to hear back bc of covid. Of course I'm still going to check my emails. I just want to make sure you all are not dissapointed if we don't hear back from them next month. I will call again to confirm.

:)

Hey y'all! I applied to UTHSCA traditional BSN for Spring of 2021! Good luck to all you!

Hi all!!

I’m so glad I found this thread because I’ve been nervously checking my email every day! I’ve also applied for the Spring 2021 cohort. I have an overall GPA of 3.9 and a prerequisite GPA of 3.9 as well. I have my associates in biology and I began volunteering at my neighborhood hospital in November of last year, but that was unfortunately cut short early this year due to COVID-19 so I didn’t get as many hours as I wanted to. I do have a lot of volunteer hours from school events though so I hope that helps! Good luck to you all! <3

Hey guys! I called yesterday for an update and the lady said that they will be sending out interview invitations in about 2 weeks! So keep a close eye on your emails! 

Good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone, 

I applied for Spring 2021 and just got a email about the second interview. So it's coming! I have until Oct 7 to do and I'm a little nervous about doing it.
