    No. I had already moved down to Galveston to go to UTMB, where I am in my 2nd year.

    Got the call from Mary Beth today! I was offered a spot in the TWU Dallas class from the waitlist. I called my wife while I was at work and we were both crying. Hang in there waitlist people!

    It wouldn’t hurt to call them and possibly see your ranking. Hang in there, and remember TWU almost every year goes deep into their waitlist.

    Did they tell you your ranking?? In the email they sent out about the waitlist, they said they don’t release your ranking

    I didn’t ask them. But I kept tabs on my waitlist schools each week. I would just give them a courtesy call and ask if there was movement on the waitlist.

    If you call them and say something like: “hey I am on your waitlist and your school is my top choice, is there any way to know how far down on the waitlist I am.” The worst thing they can do is say “sorry we can’t share that”

    Just got accepted to TWU Dallas from the waitlist. However, will be attending UTSW so those on the Dallas waitlist could be hearing something soon. Good luck everyone

    If you don't mind me asking, how do you like UTMB? What is the environment/culture like?

    I love everything about UTMB. I really couldn't be happier here. It's a very laid back environment, which is really helpful in terms of dealing with the stresses of school. The professors are amazing and funny and we usually have a good time while in class. The school is always hosting free events for students and there's always something going on in Galveston.

    Just curious but what leads you to lean towards Tx State? I am in a similar spot and UTMB definitely has a lot going for it.

    For me its because I’ve seen the faculty and DPT students work/collaborate first hand since I’m around their clinic a lot. The faculty has a lot knowledge in the different fields of PT, they all have a position of some sorts in TPTA and or APTA and I think they’re the only school in Texas that visits their students that are off on rotations no matter where in the country they are. The students I’ve been around tell me they all have fun and feel like a family. Txst also has their own clinic where the 2nd year students treat real patients before they go off on their rotations. The Clinic is ran by a licensed PT faculty member. There’s a lot of things i can say but I’ve already made this too long. The new school in Round Rock is gonna be insanely amazing, I can’t wait!

    I completely agree with @perez6. Except I haven't worked with them closely lol I went to undergrad out of state, but when I was at the interview the environment just felt amazing. Everybody truly is a family; from the students to the professors. All the professors seemed really knowledgeable and extremely nice. I do have a friend as a first year right now, she LOVES IT and it makes me want to be a part of that!
