For all those who completed the supplemental application... did you include anything for the professional certification section? For example, do they want things like CNA license or BLS? or do they mean like RN or RT license?

I included my EMT certs and my teaching credential

Update: 
Supplemental App Submitted: 08/31
Committee Review Email: 09/03 
Hoping for the best [emoji1693] 

How long did it take once they said you’re under review and will be notified about if you make it to the next round to get supplemental? I got that email 10 days ago and nothing else. It says it would notify me either way so I’m curious if anyone else is waiting.

Hi everyone!

I'm the Vice President of the MSPAS/MPH Class of 2021 and I'll be checking the forum periodically to answer any questions that I can. Congratulations to all of you applying this year. That in itself is a huge accomplishment. I'm not far removed from the process so I know what you're going through. Stay encouraged and continue to be genuine to yourself throughout this process. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! 🙂

So I never got that email. The first email I got from Touro was an invite to complete the supplemental. After submitting supplemental I got a committee review email saying my application will be reviewed and I will be contacted about interview decision.

For those of you who are looking for lodging and transportation information check here for recommendations from the school:

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in American Canyon for my interview. It was nice and they had a continental breakfast in the morning which was super convenient, and just happens to be right across the street from the Starbucks (I can’t go without a good cup of coffee in the morning, so this was a necessity for me)! The school also offers a light breakfast before the interview which I definitely recommend taking advantage of. There are some restaurants around the American Canyon area where I got dinner at as well. There are also some hotels slightly closer to Touro that a number of my classmates stayed in. I flew in and out of San Fransisco Airport and rented a car since I’m from out of state, although the Oakland Airport is closest to the school if you are able to fly in/out there!

A few things to know: The school is on Mare Island so the only way to access the campus is on a bridge. There are two bridges that access the island, however, the larger of the two bridges (the CA-37 bridge) is normally rather backed up with morning traffic, and the smaller of the two bridges goes up periodically to allow for ships to pass. Although this doesn’t happen often, it can take about 10 minutes. I recommend planning accordingly for your commute to your interview by leaving extra time for traffic due to these bridges. If you are traveling from OAK or SFO airport or nearby cities that require you to take the 1-80E or 101 N, you will have to pay a toll. The tolls only accept cash, so make sure you have cash otherwise you will receive a ticket! The tolls are anywhere from $6-$8. Also, the tolls can cause a lot of traffic.

My fee waiver actually went into my junk mail and they replied fairly quick! So might want to check there!

I got the fee waiver the same day I emailed them about it. Literally within 10 minutes of emailing them.

 I checked my junk mail and it is not there. 😞 I'll probably wait a bit longer and if they don't reply then I'll email them again. Thank you for the heads up though!
