I applied through PharmCAS, interviewed with them, then received an acceptance letter from them in the Spring of 2011. I moved over 1000 miles in anticipation of the school opening. Then came the delays. Now they are saying I will have to reapply? It's hard to believe they would do this to us.
This is not really relevant for most of you, but I thought I should post it here as a warning to all of those who are thinking about applying to the new schools. This failure ranks right up there with the Hawaii College of Pharmacy debacle.
There are people who quit their jobs and moved from the west coast to go to this school. I know of several who bought houses in the area after being accepted... and now they are saying we have to reapply.
Here's a link to a news release:
The more I think about this the more pissed I get. If I sold my house (at a huge loss), relocated (even across town), and they pulled this I might go insane. Don't reapply there. Everyone will probably avoid that place, and there will be not be enough students to allow them to open in 2013. Even if they did, it sounds like the don't have their act together at all (obvious diploma mill) and they could end up temporarily closing half way throught your education.
Do not walk away from there....................RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and contact lawyer)
