UTHSCSA Fall 2020 BSN Entry (UT-Health San Antonio)

Published

Hello everyone!!!

I decided to create a new forum for those applying to UT Health San Antonio Fall '20. We can ask each other any questions and go through this process together! I only found one other forum but it wasn't as active. This school is my top choice, but I'm also applying to UTMB. At the info. session, they said they take the TEAS reading score very seriously, so my score is making me a bit nervous. It's a holistic review, so that's good.

TEAS= 88 Nursing GPA (pre-reqs) - 3.84

Reading- 78.7 Math/Science- 3.6 or 3.7 I think

Math- 100 Overall- 3.76

Science- 87.2

English- 87.5


Good luck to all!

Your score is great. The admissions officer from UTHSCSA said 80 and above is considered competitive. I applied for the accelerated program that starts in may 2020. But if I don’t get accepted I will apply for fall 2020!

Thank you! Okay, that makes me feel better.

That's awesome! I hope you get in for the ABSN so you can start right away get become an RN sooner.

I talked to them at one of the info meetings - they said that the decisions for summer won't be back in time to apply for fall - so you gotta choose one or the other, can't apply for both.

Hi guys, as the traditional track BSN deadline approaches and passes hopefully this thread will be more active! I want to have people to be anxious with ?

My stats:

Previous Bachelors in Chemistry

Overall GPA: 3.1 (oof... used to be an engineering major ?)

Math/Science pre-req GPA: 3.9

TEAS: 86

Really hoping my pre-req GPA makes up for my overall, haha

Anyone know when they’ll start sending out interview invites after the deadline?

From the previous cycle, they sent applicants interview invites during mid-March then sent acceptances/denials April 16-19 if I remember correctly.

I know it's super early, I'm already anxious about the interview. I'm quite shy but really want to get over with already. ?

I know what you mean. I wish the process was a bit faster so I could stop worrying about it ?

It’s killing me lol. I wish we could apply for both accelerated and normal ‘just in case’
