So, I went to school in MA and sent in my application to the CA BOP and had the MA BOP transfer my hours to CA. I thought I would receive my ATT by end of May and be able to take the exam by end of June. I received a deficiency letter from the BOP because I had 0 intern hours. They did not provide any explanation as to why they were not accepting the hours from MA BOP. After 2 weeks of trying to figure out for myself why they were rejecting the hours (because for the CA BOP to answer a question is beyond the scope of their practice....), our school found out that you need to submit a form from each site in order for them to accept the hours. Since, I had already moved to California thinking that I was all set, I had to email each of my preceptors and wait for them to send in the forms. They finally did so by the end of June (thanks!!!) and now I keep waiting and nothing... I send in emails to ask for status and get an answer I do not understand: "Upon review of your file, your application is still deficient in regards to your intern hours. Having already sent in your request, please allow the board more time to process your submission or you may resubmit. Thank you." What does that mean??? Am I still deficient?? I don't understand. It is now the end of July and still no ATT. At this rate, I won't be able to take the exam until the end of September and won't be licensed until December. And I won't be making the salary of a pharmacist until then. Is that even legal for them to do so??? Bottom line, did anyone go through this and if so, what advice do you have for me? Thanks!
