Hi everyone,  I have a question about their volunteer hours requirement, is it required to have at least 500 hours? If not, am I automatically disqualified? Thanks in advance! 

I think this is a hard requirement. I would check in with them just in case anyways!

Oh very small! I must be in the morning group then (9am - 12:15pm). 

I'm also interviewing on Aug 3! I see that the group was small for earlier interviews. Were they individual or in a group setting with all the applicants together?

Hi all, I just received an email of CSUMB  stating that I did not meet one of their minimum requirements which is  500 hours of community service experience benefiting underserved or disadvantaged populations and also "Please be advised that because the priority deadline has passed, there is no guarantee your application will be reviewed when updated. Applications for next cycle will open April 2019."  Best of luck everyone!

I am with Katie. It was good to meet everyone on Friday. I think we had an awesome group and it would be great to be in the same cohort as all of you. Good Luck!

I also interviewed here on June 29th, was accepted, and will be attending CSUMB in January. Good luck to everyone with their interviews!

How did they notify you of their acceptance? Was it by phone call or email? I'm assuming denied applicants and waitlisted individuals will be emailed and accepted cohort will be called directly?

I am having trouble filling out the MS Physician Assistant application via the Cal State Apply link they provided. I cannot find their school or program. Has anyone been able to start theirs yet?

Katie, 

It’s my understanding that we are only supposed to start filling out the application. If you are accepted they will send you an id code to enter which will allow you to submit to their program. I just filled in all of the components of the application so that it is ready to submit.

Well my problem is I can't even find their school listed under the link once I have put in my personal information. Once I login, I select the Spring 2019 period under the graduate programs, and when I go to select a program, CSUMB is not listed and there is no PA program listed. Maybe I am doing something wrong? I know I am not supposed to submit until we receive a code but I can't get passed the login part.

So the Cal State Apply looks exactly like CASPA so you can go to “Add” at the top and that is how you add the school. Example below. 2843F7B7-E06C-4660-AAE4-9A7B26175CF9.thumb.png.e7a2e58340a7fcdc8faabf765b22b08b.png

Thanks,

I went back into my profile, and I didn't mark Master's program, only post-bacc/credentials so that's probably why it wasn't showing up! Thank you for your help! ?  I really appreciate it!

The director called me ? I thought it was him because I recognized the LA area code. SO EXCITED!

Super cool! The program seems awesome, I’m excited for you. I was in the afternoon interview on August 3rd. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a similar phone call.

I was the morning group so there's still hope. I was surprised to be contacted so late in the day, so keep a look out for a phone call at any time. Good luck!

That's a great idea! Maybe someone can start that soon. I'm new to FB (havent been on in 4 years) and I'm not up to date to all the new features. I would love to start a group. Maybe I can try to create one tonight just so we can start meeting each other. Congratulations to you as well. ?

I am preparing for my interview this Friday (August 17)!! Excited, nervous, scared simultaneously.

Congrats on the interview offer! It is perfectly normal to be nervous, but I can tell you this was a great interview experience. They make you feel incredibly welcome. Good luck!
