Hi, Guys. Are there any of you form California? Can you tell me what is the acceptance rate in California, how many schools you applied and how you got in with some real stats, I really appreciate it since I want to be a CRNA in near future....

Thanks of your reply catcolalex, but I wonder if you used your UTAH RN license (finished school with RN in Utah or any experience work done in UTAH? maybe?) to come to California and applied for CRNA or you moved from UTAH to Cal already before you started your NUrsing school? If it was the 1st case, can you tell me how you did it? I appreciate it.

class size 35, applications 350, age 35, GPA 3.5? Am I reading this right? That's a lot of 35's. Just saying, is all.

It is alot of 35s!! The KP website says 450-500 appl a year. I remember the interview process, and there might have been 90 interviews. Out of that, there were only like 34 in the class, and 3 have "left" the program already. I don't think that it matters what the acceptance rate is, unless you really aren't a stellar performer, and don't have alot in your corner to get in. Personally, I believe that you should aim high. There is a reason why this school is in the top 5 in the country.
