    Anyone else concerned about this application process? I'm still waiting on an acceptance/rejection letter and am beginning to worry.

    Did you checkyour email? It's supposed to be sent to you via email...check what email you but down on your application. It was supposed to have been sent out on the 30th, otherwise you should call Elonda! You're supposed to respond with your acceptance by the 18th of may I believe. Goodluck!

    It was hiding in my spam folder amongst hundreds of bogus emails! Close call, but I got in! I was beginning to write if off given all of the competition (350+ applicants!) Whew!

    hahahaha omg! duh! I shoulda thought of that! CONGRATULATIONS!!! YAAAY!!!! I got in tooo!!! I think I'm gonna work all summer to save up for the program...I'm so excited, aren't you?!!! SAAAWEEEEET! Yeah my bachelor's cum was low, but I kicked butt in the end and in my pre-reqs... I'm actually finishing up micro and phys right now, currently have an A in both classes and my finals are on the 15th and 16th of May. Has anyone else heard anything of what to expect?

    Congrats to the other two who got in, dmat and ongok? yay! anyone else???

    Do any of you in the Fullerton prerequisite program have any idea how many students from your class were accepted? Just wondering how many outside applicants like myself were admitted.

    I know there's at least three of us that I know of, myself and two others in my previous classes...I haven't heard from anyone else in my current class getting in. It's hard because I feel so bad and do not want to show that I am excited around them because they are all really bummed..(I'm taking Physio right now)

    Can't wait for that package though I hope they send it out soon. I can't wait to see if any of the other applicants I interviewed with got in..They all were from other schools.

    Congrats to all of you accepted, hopefully it will be a great experience for the first cohort. As I'm looking into applying for Fall 2008, I hope you'll be around to answer questions for all of us potential 08'ers!

    Given the competition for the EL-MSN program, I'm actually surprised I was accepted (I had a 3.67 GPA on my previous 60 undergrad units). With over 350 applicants, I figured those accepted would be in the 3.7 - 4.0 range. I wonder how much they weighted other factors like interview, letter of intent, ect.

    Come to think of it, I don't think I factored my GPA without adding the two classes I'm taking... my bf did it for me, I think he said depending on HOW they actually grade it, I either had a 3.6 or a 3.75, but that is contingent upon me getting an A in both Micro and Physio, So without those 9 semester units, I would say maybe a 3.5? I will say though that I worked my butt off because my cum is how you say...NOT good. I knew I had to make sure my application was top notch so I spent a substantial amount of time on my essay and preparing for my interview.

    I'm surprised I got in and my brother didn't... he's a cum laude! His CUM gpa was higher than a 3.6! It still baffles me and I am SUPER sad that he didn't get in =(.

    My two good friends are in fullerton and they didn't get in either, I actually interviewed WITH them! That makes me VERY sad as well...

    I feel the same way, I don't want to tell everyone because I don't want to gloat at the expense of their feelings.

    But I am what you say I guess an "outsider" because I was not accepted conditionally into the Fullerton program on account of me not being finished quite yet with my bachelor's at the time. I currently attend Saddleback. (Which does not have a waitlist by the way)

    It seems to me that provisional acceptance really did not mean anything, in fact, it's almost as if it hurts one's chances of getting into the program.

    I must say though, CONGRATS again to those who got in, and to those who didn't get in, DON'T give up!!!

    I here ya. My good friend, who applied along with me, didn't get in either. He had almost the same GPA as me but wasn't granted an interview. We're both super bummed he didn't get in.

    I know what u mean too..I graduated from CSUF in '05 and was also conditionally accepted last year to finish my chem and physio..I didn't think my GPA was super great (3.71 last 60 units) and 4.0 pre-reqs. There was another girl in my current class who had a higher GPA than I and got wait-listed..So I am definately sure they took other areas of the application process seriously (like interview, letters, statement, etc.)
