    LOL I know! I was really surprised. Too bad the earliest interview date I could attend wasn't until April 10th. :( Oh well! Maybe this way I'll be really prepared for the interview, right?

    i just so happened to email them at the right time, asking if they received my documents. All they said was "yes, it is currently under review"...

    Congrats to those who have been accepted and good luck to those who are still in the process!

    I'm actually just starting to get my application together for this school. :rolleyes: Pretty late, I know, but I recently found out that the deadline is May 1...so here's to hoping! :xf:

    O wow congrats on the quick reply, I didn't add mine in until 2/29 but I haven't heard anything back. If you don't mind me asking, were your stats really good?

    I think my stats are good overall. The good: BS degree, Pharmcas GPA 3.3, PCAT comp 92, good recommendations from science profs. The not so good: no pharm experience. Also, I'm in my 30s and work full time at a non-pharm job, so I don't have the usual list of extracurricular leadership and service activities other applicants have if they're coming right out of college.

    As for the quick invitation, it might have just been luck or good timing. FDU's juggling a lot with application submissions and interviews going on at the same time. Hang in there! You could still get an invite.

    Hi all!

    I see a lot of inquiries regarding timeline and how FDU contacts you. I'll give you my experience, which could differ from your experience because of the volume of application they may be getting now. Also I applied directly to the school, not PharmCAS.

    Jan 15. sent in application.
    Jan 16 paid fee
    Jan 20- received email that they were missing letters of recommendation
    Feb 1- Sent in all my recommendations through the mail
    Feb 10- Email invitation for interview.
    Mar 14- Attended Interview
    Mar 22- Recieved Acceptance Email :D

    What was the interview like?
    RELAX! The faculty is soooo friendly! :) There is a sort of info session, walking tour of campus, and then you have two to three interviews with faculty members. Its just a conversation and you may get a situational question. Best advice: KNOW WHY YOU WANT TO ENTER THE PROFESSION! duh!

    FDU seems like it has the potential to be a great school but I will be attending another school. I can't gamble with the a school that isn't accredited yet. :scared: But that's good news for whomever is applying because that means there one more spot open :thumbup:

    Hope this is helpful!

    I heard they are interviewing ~ 200 people and accepting 85. So anyone that gets an interview has 42.5% chance of getting in. Those are good odds. I would think they have received more than 200 applications.

    For those of you who have been accepted, besides the max of $20,500 in the stafford loan, what other loans are you taking to pay if you are not rich? lol

    I think u should call them and ask if its too late for this cycle to apply...i think all ur required Docs have to be in by May 1st. But the Fact that u have an MS means that u have taken the GRE in one point in ur life....See if u can transfer those stats..:

    They told us during the interview. If you pay $500 deposit before May 1st. you are locked in for $33,000 for first 2 years and after 2 years, it will increase to god knows what. so I m guessing if someone dsnt pay their $500 deposit, they'll have to pay $35,000 starting from Fall.

    Please I need urgent help!!! i am pharmacist from abroad & i finished my MS from here. Yesterday i got mail from tracy that they are missing my 1 semester prereq in Communication or Speech. I checked my nearby community college they are offering Public speech( 3 credit course) class in summer I. Anyone have any idea about public speech class is valid or not? I am bit nervous about deadlines.

    yes public speaking of Public Speech class will fulfill that requirement, but make sure with tracy, email her and ask her if FDU will accept the credit for that class.
