If you reside in Southern California you should plan for a personal interview. You will be notified by phone or e-mail of your interview date and time. Due to the limited number of interview dates/times, you will be assigned an interview slot, and you should plan around your interview as alternate dates/times are not available.

May 2nd through Dec 1st applicants will be notified in the middle of January.
