Don't bother the clinical office until you get your score back. Once you get it, send in a copy of your score report to the registrar and to JA, the Documents Specialist for new clinical students. JA should then send you a list of requirements. Some were the same as my 5th semester, some were different. Once you submit all these documents to JA, she should bless you and put you on the list to be assigned clinicals. She should send you an email letting you know you've been blessed. ***FOLLOW-UP VIA TELEPHONE TO MAKE SURE JA RECEIVES YOUR PAPERWORK YOU SUBMITTED VIA EMAIL. THE AUA EMAIL SYSTEM KEPT EATING MY LARGE ATTACHMENT.*** Once she tells you that you are blessed, I would call your assigned coordinator with a courtesy call to say hello and introduce yourself. I let mine know my desires, but told him I would go any place and any time and would take any short-notice opening. I was there to make his life easier. I had a short-notice rotation land in my lap in 6 weeks. Once you're in the system, then you're golden. Be nice and respectful with the clinical coordinators. It's amazing how far you can get with a 'please' and a 'thank-you' instead of demanding things from them. If you want me to email you the list of requirements they sent me earlier this year, just PM me your email address. NOTE: These requirements may have changed, so you can't take them as gospel until you get the most current requirements list from JA.
Also keep a copy of all your email correspondence with the Clinical Dept. You never know when an old email might come in hand. Courtesy copy yourself on all emails you send to the school.
Hope this helps.
