Recommended Posts

Has anyone gotten a rejection from Cal State Long Beach? I mean I'm assuming I was rejected but I've just heard crickets from them since applying...

I would call their department and make an inquiry if you want a definitive answer. Acceptance letters did go out and I heard that they are in the process of doing a second review period for those who are waitlisted. Those who were waitlisted were also emailed too!

Do you know how long the wait is for that?? I was waitlisted in Long Beach.

 

I'm not sure what the waiting period is going to be like, my friend was also waitlisted. But they did tell her that they were going to do another admission process that involves another review because there is no priority order for the waitlist at the moment. This may mean another interview, another application, or just even them looking over your application one more time. I'm thinking it'll probably be them reviewing your app one more time and then ordering everyone.

I called/emailed them today and they told me they'd just completed a second round of review and I would hear in a couple days. I'm not really sure if that would be the same for you though, because I wasn't waitlisted, I just didn't hear anything at all.

Good luck everyone!

Best of luck to you! They are having some mix ups with their emails apparently, they called to clarify which email was correct. Hopefully you get good news soon!

Hi everyone,

I just received my letter (email) from ENMU. I was waitlisted.  Anyone else on this list or anyone accepted that's thinking about rejecting please let me know. It's a relief to hear back but bitter sweet.

Got into Southern Illinois University - Carbondale! Can anyone give any info about the campus, program, instructors, and etc.? This isn't my top choice, but it isn't my last choice. Just would love more information about it outside of the website! I know their clinical program is structured differently than other schools, but I'm not so fond on the area.

Also what's everyone's opinion on between: (1) total $62k for 2 years, desired location (California), beautiful campus, lots of diversity OR (2) $40k, meh location, not that great of a reputation (at least for undergrad - not sure what the grad reputation is)? Both are accredited. California is my end goal and if I attend the CA school, then I don't have deal with taking to get my licenses in CA vs if I go to Carbondale, then I will have to apply for my licenses for CA and fill out paperwork that will take months to process. 

Thanks so much in advance! 

As far as on the second note...where are you attending in CA? Also, are you worried about the financial aspect of graduate school or will you be using loans to cover, etc? I ask these things bc for someone currently living in CA, the cost of living is very high & on top of that, I am going to cover school with loans (esp bc you can only work minimally in grad school, if at all). In the grand scheme of things, though graduate school is only two years, I didn't want to have to worry about accumulating 75-80k in debt, on top of my undergrad debt! Of course this is just my opinion & my own financial situation :)

I think if financial situation isn't an issue.. make a pros & cons list & go with your heart! It sounds like you are leaning toward CA, but just remember, in the end you'll get your CCC's no matter what! California is a beautiful place to be...just get ready for the traffic :) hehe 

Hope this helps !!

Hi!! If I were in your shoes...I'd go with the CA school. I have a friend who was in a similar situation (wanted to ultimately work in CA but went out of state for grad school) and she said while it was okay she ultimately wished she had gone to school in CA, not just because of the licensing thing but because classes were geared towards how things were done in that state which wasn't always necessarily the same as CA. 

Also...I'm guessing because of that high CA tuition it's not a Cal State, but the cool thing about CA is that there are state grants for in-state residents, which I didn't even realize until recently. I got my financial aid package and most of my tuition is covered by this grant - my yearly tuition is going to be $1,750(!!!). I am not sure if this grant is available for all schools in CA or just the public schools, but definitely do some research on that and communicate with the financial aid office.

I think it sounds like you'd be happier in California. Plus, placements can turn into jobs and it would give you the opportunity to network in the area you want to ultimately be. Just my two cents :)

It sounds like OP is not a CA resident, so s/he would be ineligible for state grants for residents.

Your grant covered grad school tuition? I thought grants were only for undergrad...even in CA. Please let me know if I’m wrong!

Yes it did! It's called the State University Grant (SUG) and it applies to graduate students as well. I didn't realize this either until very recently but it's true!
