    Have you read the threads on here about the difficulties others have had getting accepted in California? You may want to have a good read before you apply.

    Did you feel you were able to meet the concurrency issue as your school may have shorten the hours by having less cases? So then, they might have shorten the required theory hours?

    I would e-mail the CA BON this same question you asked and at the same time, find out from your dean's school what was the hours you received or will show on your transcripts to see if they match once you get the information.

    I read somewhere here whereby some PH grads were denied the ATT due to "excessive hours", I think that was in FL tho. The school this person went to apparently increased the course hours to compensate for the concurrency but it doesn't work that way.

    Earlier, I thought you mentioned one of your batchmates from the same school got denied from the CA BON, but was this person from the same month and year of your graduation? And applied recently this year?

    I'm wondering for what reason was the rejection if you guys were all the same? If so, your friend's application should not have been denied due to the concurrency issue as you said you already meet those requirements.

    What was the reason for that denial?

    No.. I guess i was just lucky to complete my cases on time. In our curriculum, we took MS for 2 sems.. MS 1 & MS 2. Do you think the CA BON would accept that?
