    Hey, Just got an email for them saying I would be invited to interview starting in January. They are finishing up the dates..anyone else?

    I'm really interested in this school as they offer a master program with the pharmacy program and will finish in 4 years, no additional tuition.

    I applied a few months ago but haven't been invited for an interview yet. I am really interested in their school too.

    How was the interview for you? Have you heard back from them yet?

    I got an initial email stating I'd be invited, but nothing since then. I haven't e-mailed back. I was interested in thei are 4 year duel degree, but they got quiet. Maybe accreditation didn't go through

    I got the invitation early January and sat for the interview not to long ago.....VERYYYY high profile university......Mansions and green grass everywhere......not a blade of grass out of place

    As far as the interview ....each day has 6 interviewees ....whom rotate through 4 interview sessions (about a half hour each) ....in my day ....i think i was the only candidate that didn't have an MS degree....totally different playing field .....the deans and interviewers were extremely qualified with endless resumes of accomplishments....id take this school over RU or LIU

    My stats are pretty high...but yeah i was the only undergrad finishing a first degree....but compared to LIU interviewroom the average age(ballpark) was early 30s at fdu as compared to liu which was early 20s....& every interviewer in the room seemed pretty financially set...definaty much more competitive then i expected from a new school

    I completed my application in October and went for an interview on January 23rd. For those who are preparing for an interview: It was 4 mini interviews of about 20 min each. The questions were behavioral rather than situational. I got the feeling they are looking for people with high integrity, trustworthy, passionate and flexible. They asked me to provide an example in my past experience where I had to show any of those values.

    This school was my first choice, So I will definitively be attending in September if they get approved for pre candidate status. :)
    Anyone else?

    I screamed after I hung up. It took a while to settle in. I am from PA but I will be moving closer. I haven't decided where I will be living yet. I hope you get in too. Good luck!:)

    From what I have heard FDU is a good school, but does not even have one lab for pharmaceutical chemistry students doing their masters program. It is really hard to believe that this school is starting a dual degree pharmD program . I really hope they know what they are doing and would put in some effort to do what they are planning for the future.

    honestly i thought the same...but it turns out they have much more then one expected....not to mention they have 170/176 acres of unoccupied green grass....in a nutshell they have the room and the $$$$ to build what ever in necessary....Also the MS programs do not start until the 2nd professional year , which is an entire calendar year to upgrade whatever facility to fulfill any need....unlike touro...which is a building (funded by a religious source ) fdu is a school that been around ....thats opening up professional school.....and its a DRY campus....which means it will be in a clean professional setting.....

    Honestly friend, they are not constructing a new building. They are just leasing out an office space at Florham park.

    I was thinking about about applying here... but I haven't taken the PCAT, has anyone gotten in with just the GRE?

    and for the people that already got accepted, what were your GPA/pharm related experience?

    I am from PA. I attended SCSU in CT, and UPENN in PA for my undergard. I will be moving closer to the school. Since you live in NJ, do you have any recommendations regarding affordable places to live close to FDU?

    The pharmacy school is located in a very upscale area, so the housing might be a little pricey, I'm personally not from that area so I'm not familiar. The dean stated that they are working really hard with a neighboring housing branch to ensure there is affordable housing for 100 pharmacy students until they build housing for the student. So id wait and see.

    I wouldnt want to discourage anyone from applying by posting my stats ...From the interview I felt the mist important thing was your personality...i took both the gre and the pcat...it seems like its equal...so ur best or either will he fine ....the application fee a small investment with possible large outcome ....dont blow this oppurtunity....besides they started the interview process late Jan...im sure te still have more than Half of the 85 seats still empty...

    its basically 2 groups of interviewer...1 group will ask you questions related to pharmacy, ur clg , ur experience and stuff

    and 2nd group will ask you questions about Integrity, ethics, they'll give you a situation and ask you to describe how would handle it....

    Believe me all the faculty are really really friendly, dnt stress too much...once u get there, you 'll know what i'm talking about...
