this is a good question that user PM'd me with and that has been randomly discussed in multiple fora but not in one particular place that perhaps deserves a thread of its own..
with the users permission to repost, the questions are below..
I have 2 questions that I haven't been able to get a concrete answer for:
Which states use the California Approved List for granting Licensure?
ie if you are not on the approved list then you cannot get licensed in that state right away (either you will never be eligible or you will have to get board certified or get licensed in different state first and will be eligible only after that) .
Which states DENY licensure if you are on a California DISAPPROVED list?
ie if you are on the cali disapproved list, which states will not license you, or which states will scrutinize your application more or which states will being on the cali disapproved list create more obstacles in getting licensed (even if eventually you can get licensed there after you have proved you are on the list erroneously)
