    after you turned in your application, what happens next? Do they send you the background check information or do they just complete it? I just turned in my application packet today and I was just wondering how long I have to stress about this and what to expect. Any help would be great.

    After you have turned in everything and I mean everything they will ask that you fill out the crim.background check and send it in with the fee.If all is well they send you a letter of acceptance. How long this takes has alot to do with what you had sent to the school and if all info is at wson. After you send in your cbc wait a few days and call to make sure that they have everything if not she will tell you what she still needs...and if everything is in order you will know very soon about a week maybe week and a half. Good luck and dont worry!

    I had all my transcripts sent straight from my schools to Watts, and all the references, applications, essay and application fee I hand delivered just to cut a little time out. She said it looked like everything was ready and in order. So I guess i'll just try and calm down a little and wait on the background check form. Thank you so much!

    It used to be that there was a committee that reviewed the completed applications and once you passed the committee then you received the background check form. Not sure if that is still the case and, if so, how often they meet.

    As I recall I thought it was 3 or 4 weeks after I had everything in before I got the background check, and it was a couple weeks after I returned that that I heard back from the school.

    Best of luck!

    okay, so I want to make sure I understand. If I pass the committee, i'll recieve the form for the background check? But if I don't pass the committee I won't...correct?

    You'll hear back from Watts no matter what.
