What is the confusion about? UCDMC usually interviews all day on two consecutive Fridays. They give the interviewees a choice of which date they would like to interview, in case one day is better than the other. If both Fridays are convenient for you, then tell them so--that will help them out in scheduling interviews.

Can anyone who attended interview at UC Davis give some useful information on how to prepare for it? How long did it take and what questions did they ask?

Hello, the process is different, I'm not allowed to disclose what happens that day but what I can suggest is really know yourself in terms of what makes you a good candidate for the CLS program,review their mission statement, think outside the box because they're really isn't a good way to prepare, your experiences in life will get you through.

could you please tell how long did the interview last?
I assume you are already in the program. Any insight on how to make yourself stand out from other applicants?

Hi! I applied for Fall 2013 at UC Davis back in January, but I still have not gotten any replies from them yet. Does that mean I did not get invited for an interview? :( I'm so nervous... If anyone else applied for the Fall 2013 cycle, did you get any response from the UC Davis CLS Program? Thank you!

I don't know if this is helpful, but I applied to the Pomona CLS program and haven't gotten a response as of yet either. Their deadline was January 22, so I hope they are still looking through the candidates. SFSU and SJSU had to turn in their applications in November and got responses back starting a few weeks ago.

Has anyone been invited to interview at either UC Irvine or CSULA? I got an email from UC Irvine 2 weeks ago saying when interviews will be held for selected candidates, but haven't gotten any emails since then and am starting to get worried.

So frustrating, but glad to hear I'm not the only one who is still waiting. It's making me really nervous though :( Yeah, I got an email last night from CSULA saying the same thing.

Do you know if UC Irvine and/or CSULA notify all applicants of their interview status or do they just notify applicants selected for interviews?

I know that the other programs send notifications to all applicants regardless of their interview status. I was hoping that UC Irvine and CSULA were the same. It's so annoying not knowing especially since, yes, the first day of interviews for Irvine is next Friday :( I'm trying not to lose hope though

Atleast you guys are all from CA. I would have to book a last minute flight out there if I land an interview. Have any of you thought about going to school in another state to complete a CLS training program? We have pretty good ones out here in NY that would satisfy CA requirements. Good luck!

Wow, applyig all the way from New York! No, I haven't really considered programs in other states. I was hoping to stay in California.

Well let's hope that they are still going through applications and they we find out within the next few days...

Good luck to you as well!

Hey everybody!
I have an interview with UCI this Friday and then on March 11th I have an interview with UC Davis. I already interview at Eisenhower Medical Center. These interviews are nerve-wracking, and really long! Will anybody else be going with the Friday afternoon UCI group? Or the March 11th morning group at UC Davis?

Wow congrats on the UCI interview! I haven't heard from them since Feb 7th so I'm guessing I didn't get an interview :( Do you mind telling me when they notified you about your interview?

I also have an interview at UC Davis but its on the 13th.

Good luck to you!

UCI emailed me last Monday I believe to invite me for an interview. I just got the final email last night with the official date and time. They really cut it close! I'll try to post about my Davis experience :)

It's SO crazy how competitive it is to get into a CLS program in CA. For the CLS training program I interviewed for here in NY they only had 10 applicants! They accept ~ 12 a year so that means if you meet the requirements and got the $ for tuition you're pretty much guaranteed a spot. Congrats and good luck to those interviewing :) for those who weren't so lucky this year, stay positive and re-apply again. Or come over here to NY!

Hmm well let me rephrase what I wrote. They usually accept ~ 12 but this years class should be ~ 9 or 10 from what I was told, so I guess that doesn't mean a total of 10 people really applied but I'm sure it's not a crazy # like 60.

Definitely. Also, the Ed coordinator said that all applicants are notified of their interview status so even if you don't get an interview you will still be notified.

I don't know if that's accurate, but if so it will surely take a long time to send all the emails. It's nice that they notify everybody of their status. Good luck!

Great. Thanks! I'm hoping I get notification within the next day or so cause I live 7 hours away and will have to drive rather than fly down there so it would be nice to know.

Good luck to you as well!

Hi CLS_2013,

Your stats must be excellent since you have received so many interviews invitations. I did not get any interview this time and will reapply again for next year. I hope it is because I did not complete my pre-reqs yet.
Do you mind sharing your interview experiences so far at Eisenhower and UCI?
You can email me at my protected email here www.emailcover.com/euv.png Thanks a lot!

For those who were offered an interview to any CLS Program, would you mind sharing your stats? Just trying to get an idea of what I should be shooting for the next time I re-apply. Currently, I'm taking the Hematology pre-req and don't have a grade for it and will be taking Immunology next quarter. Maybe a reason why I haven't gotten invited is because these classes are still in progress..

Hi mango! Last year I applied to two internships while my last two pre-reqs were still in progress. Neither gave me an interview. This year when my pre-reqs were done, I applied to five programs and got three interviews.

I have a 3.2 science GPA, but got all A's in my pre-reqs, and I have lots of lab experience.

One program director told me the chief ways people improve their applications are by getting more lab experience, and taking more classes. One girl I know repeated one of her pre-reqs to get a better grade. Getting licensed in phlebotomy is another suggestion I've heard.

I'm convinced that there are a lot of intelligent and qualified people who aren't even getting interviews, due to the huge numbers applying. I definitely don't assume I'll get an offer, but here's hoping.

Hi Mango,

I graduated from Sac State in May 2011 with my BS in Molecular Biology. My GPA was 3.85. I'm currently in my last semester of my graduate program, also at Sac State. I graduate this coming May, and will have a MA in Stem Cell Research. I currently have a 3.87 GPA. I am also working in a research lab, where I have been since last May (so I have less than one year lab experience). Prior to applying for the programs, I had completed all of my prereqs except for hematology and medical micro. I finished hematology last semester, and am currently enrolled in medical micro.

I applied to 4 programs, but only got interviews from 2. I'm not sure if not having medical micro finished yet prevented me from getting interviews at UC Irvine and CSULA or if the competition this cycle was just out of control.

I'm really disappointed about not getting an interview at UC Irvine or CSULA, but am keeping my fingers crossed for the two programs I interviewed for.

Good luck to you next cycle!
