rofl. yeah. they accept both men and women. only about 10% of the university population are guys, that's all three campuses together. lol so yeah.LOL. OK, I actually used wikipedia after I posted that. I wonder how many guys actually attend there. Dang, I wish I did lol
Heyo watersgoneby,I've been accepted to TWU Houston also, but am also slated to interview with UTMB Galveston. I haven't gotten a packet yet, does anyone know the deadline for accepting or declining their offer?
I am honestly debating whether or not to continue on with UTMB, as TWU has been my number one since the get go.
I honestly thought I wouldn't get in on my first try, so this is all kind of surreal!
hey alli211,Hey! I got accepted to TWU but I'm not going to actually be able to see the campus before I move there...what's it like? Also, what's Houston like?
Haha, well, I guess you'll be right at home here in Houston, aside from the summer heat that lasts until mid-Fall. And yeah, the Texas Medical Center (TMC) here is like a second downtown. TWU isn't exactly in downtown, yet again, it's only five minutes away.LoL! Awesome...I'm from SC, so I'm perfectly accustomed to all over the place weather....Wednesday the high was 60, today 34... Wednesday the trees bloomed, last night it sleeted...i figure the only thing i will have to get used to is the crazy hot part of summer being about a month longer. I'm excited to hear that TWU is in the downtown area...that's my favorite part of big cities .
I really liked the curriculum at TWU, so I applied even though I couldn't see it. Plus our in-state tuition is like $10,000 w/ higher living expenses and TWU is ranked better anyways...
DPTRVTCCRP: It's really a matter of choice. Which campus did you like best? Faculty? Curriculum? Facilities? Passing rates for NPTE?Surrounding area? etc. They may be ranked the same, but they are very different schools.
If you attend UTMB instead of TWU- Dallas, you get the beach and the proximity to Houston and the Texas Medical Center. lol. If you attend TWU-Dallas, you get the homeliness and whatnot.
Yeah, I would go with...
I've had friends that have gone to both the UTMB and TWU (Houston) program. Both loved their programs. Not sure what it was but the one from TWU program seemed to hold up against UTMB. The TWU student loved the location and their curriculum. The one that went to UTMB really enjoyed the staff but didn't like the location and their class was stricken by Hurricane IKE when it came through. They had to take classes online and relocate until things were sorted out. Hopefully Galveston is better prepared for hurricane season. I'm going to apply to both next year. I'd hope to go to either but would rather go to TWU because of it's reputation and to avoid natural disasters.I like the new TWU Dallas campus - everything in one building (just like Houston's), but I like the staff and program from UTMB. Both have excellent passing rates for the NPTE, and excellent placement rates. At least I don't have to make the official decision for a while, perhaps something will come up that will help make the decision process easier.
