@truebluefoo Thanks so much! I really appreciate it greatly! I read that you were considering SacState for Spring 18 & wanted to let you know if you do apply there during the spring, they get way less applicants (almost 200-300) while in the fall they get 400-500. And their point cut off, while still high, is a little lower in the spring! I know you wanted a preceptorship and Sac doesn't have it but just wanted to let you know if you were planning on applying for the spring! :) Thanks again for your help!

Thanks again, I was not aware of Sac states minimal preceptorship, however I'm still super impressed with their school. I've met with the director Teri Tallman. I'm pretty sure she's a big reason for their success, and she is really on top of it! So, for now I'm encouraged to go to CSUEB Concord, however if it all falls apart on me (family planning stuff) then I will be applying in the spring. I live around corner from Sacramento.

Believe it or not, what ruined me was my English 1A class, which I had taken over 10 yrs ago and gotten a C. This reduced my GPA from a 3.92 to a 3.76, costing me 10 points which decapitated my chance pretty much. And sociology was in progress, now complete with an A. So, I feel like next time is a winner if I do reapply. Anyways good luck with everything!!

The Concord campus is definitely smaller than the Hayward campus. I did hear that we may have to take a few classes at the Hayward campus, but don't hold me to that, it may be a rumor. They may be changing the program a bit now that it's moving to semester system so who knows. Choosing campuses really depends on commute, cost of living, etc. There's definitely more of a "university" feel at the Hayward campus compared to Concord so if that's what you want, then Hayward is a better choice.

I wanted to pass on some info regarding the health requirements that will be due by Jul 15th. If you volunteered and had to do a blood test for your volunteering (at Kaiser or John Muir), they likely have records of your immunization titers. This means you don't have to go and pay out-of-pocket for these tests. I volunteered at Kaiser and went to the Employee office to get copies of my records showing all my immunization titers. Volunteers require PPD skin tests for TB, flu vaccinations, etc. so you may have records of all of these without having to pay for it. You still need to do the background check, drug testing, physical exam, but you may be able to save extra $$ on the titers.

I want to spread this info since it can save you a lot of time, effort, and money. Hope this helps.

BabyD...I agree with everything you said, and that is why East Bay was my first choice. I also have a family and live just 15 miles from the Concord campus. I applied to Sac State but I believe it was a blessing I didn't get in, the commute would have been awful. I want to work in this area too. All around I couldn't be happier with getting into this program, I think the preceptorship is such a good opportunity for us.

Hey BabyD. thanks for posting up this information. I myself have never volunteered so by any chance do you know if those of us who have not have to get these tests done by East Bay themselves or can we go to our own doctors? more so for the titers as i have never done them

@Javila424 I'm so sorry to hear you weren't accepted, do not give up hope. But if there is any advice that I could give for taking the teas, its to definitely give yourself at least 2 weeks of pure study time. On top of reading the ATI study book I also read the Mometrix guide that they give out for the teas which covers a lot of information. I also watched videos on youtube by Crash Course on Anatomy and Physiology which are little animated videos that really help with going over material in a sort of cool way to help engrave what you're already reading. You can also look up Teas version 6 videos on youtube and they have videos for every section of the teas like your math, A&P, Reading, and Language I believe. Using all of these tools I was able to score 93 and above in every section of the exam except reading (its the first section and I was super nervous so I psyched myself out). Really hope this helps you out and I wish you the best on re-taking the exam and continuing on your journey.

@RickyO - I think you can get these tests done through the student health center at CSUEB. I'm sure more information will come out about the requirements in June. You can also go through your own doctor. I had to get all of this done for my 2nd choice school and I went to my doctor at Kaiser and asked to have the blood work done. That's when he told me, it was already done when I went through my volunteer application. Double check with your own insurance first since you may be able to get it done as a part of a physical work-up which may make it less costly. Otherwise you have to pay for individual tests.

@javila - I took TEAS V last summer before it was phased out to TEAS VI. I ordered the study guide and online tests package. I also attended the CSUEB Continuing Education class for TEAS preparation for the Reading and Grammar section only. It was a bit expensive at $200 but was worth it IMO because the class gave hints on the Reading section, how to find the main idea quickly, which paragraph to find it in, etc. I didn't do the math or science ones because I felt strong in those already. Also, I took my first test and got an 88%, then took the 2nd one a month later and got a 93%. The grammar is the hardest part and I'm a native English speaker!! I think taking them close together helped me because I remembered a lot from the first time. The first time is always hard because you don't know what to expect and then the 2nd time is easier. I don't know anything about the new TEAS test. I'm glad it's over! GOOD LUCK!

I've talked about ATI TEAS prep extensively in other threads but my vote goes to online ATI TEAS bundle... about 200 bucks... a bit steep... but that's the only way you get access to the online program which IMO is the business if you spend the time learning what answers are incorrect and why .... but as a perk they send you the book and a couple free practice tests...
