I'm not really sure what happened but it sounds like this has also happened to other applicants before us. But on the older threads, it sounds like even though some didn't get the assessment right away, it didn't exclude them as an candidate. It sounds like UCLA was expecting this to happen from the get-go and made it a point to put out there that they would send out assessment forms later so it could just be a glitch in their system that they haven't been able to fix. I know that my internet connection also died mid-upload of my documents so that might have been it too? Hmm. I was still able to re-upload my documents later but still got no assessment. But I do have to agree with others. They should just have one streamlined function where either everyone gets the assessment with the application or everyone gets emailed a link or something. Despite it though, I'm sure it will all work out!flee43 when did you submit your application? What did you put as your choices? I submitted mine at 10:30 on Monday and chose the NICU as my top choice. I am just wondering if there is a reason some people got the assessment and others didn't.

I've only done clinicals in small and rural hospitals!One of my friends got into the program that started in Feb. She said all the ICUs and Pediatrics units accepted 15 new grads each, and ER took 3. She said there were about 3000 applicants!

I really enjoyed the rural hospitals though, but I do wish I knew what it was like to work in a giant hospital. I visited a hospital in SF a couple weeks ago... 12 stories tall!!! But I guess in SF the only way you can build is up, haha.

I applied for CTICU.
My friend was accepted into one of the ICUs at ucla. She told me they accepted a total of 110+ applicants out of 3000+ for santa monica and ronald reagan units. I only know the data for ICUs. For ICUs, there were 6 neuro ICU, 6+ CTICU, and 1 MICU accepted. Also the MICU is really overstaffed so they will probably not gonna even interview for the summer but who knows. CTICU is very understaffed. Interesting many of those who got accepted were out of state. My friend emphasized that you need to show your personality because that's what they're looking for. Good luck to all!
Here's the application process:
1) Assessment + recommendation letters
2) Interview with the Unit director
3) Call back interview with CNS/unit director and tour the unit
4) Pray that they will call you with good news!
