    So this was'nt the first time that you applied to this school. Right? Well I told the interviewer that I don't know the answer to LD50 of water. He asked to make a guess but I declined. He himself answered it then. I was told that it will take 20 days to know the outcome. They said the adcom is meeting either on 3rd or 11th. Not sure if that was true. I called the school and came to know from Brittany that interviewers were impressed with how the interviews went of all the candidates, and we should hear back from them pretty soon!!!

    U did right thing, They told me 4-6 weeks to get the call. I applied 2 years ago and in my 1st question I had to tell them that i applied and got rejected 1st time. then they asked me why I dont have PCAT etc? i said its not requirement. then they started asking me about research. it was more of conversation. they seemed impressed when I said I want to continue research can I do it in this Uni. they said I should contact the prof If i am interested but wait for acceptance letter... It is sad now I feel fool about it and scared too if they think I should do PhD for research and not pharm D.... I got admission in PhD too but I am waiting to hear back from NOVA 1st..

    I have lost all my hopes. They went after my pcat score which is a very average score. I guess I'll try next year but I will have one more shot at western university this year.

    Its too early to loose hope yet.. Its been only less than 2 weeks.. and how come they said 11th to you, 11th is saturday. I dont think any of us yet got a call. I will wait one more week then call them. I feel you have a good chance. best luck:thumbup: This is my last time if I dont get it I am not applying again.

    My interview was on Jan 27th. Thanks for the congrats and good luck to you!

    @dhanesh
    Don't be so worried. My interview wasn't the smoothest either... though it lasted 20mins, it felt like 10 haha... However, they did compliment my PCAT scores.

    On the call Mrs. Lyda told me that the committee met last Friday (Feb 3rd).
    Good luck to those awaiting responses!!!!

    Well, best of luck for the outcome. I think my application as a whole is not too bad. Since my interview was awful, I don't think the application will matter.

    @juto just curious to know about your stats. My PCAT as I said earlier is a 74(chem 96, RC 24) with a 3.93 GPA. Also from whatever I have completed at the local community college I have a 3.87. A year and a half of tech experience and a summer of volunteering.

    I sent them an email but no response. I think the invitations have been sent now.There is no point in trying to find out the outcome.

    Don't be discouraged if your interview didn't go very well at Nova. I thought mine didn't go very well but I still got accepted anyways. I interviewed on 01/18 and they called me on 02/10 with the good news. My stats were mediocre too so there is hope for everyone :)

    Is anybody planning on taking prereqs during the summer (or know if we can?)? I still have to take Economics, Statistics and Ethics. I think the course code for Ethics is PHI2604, but I'm not sure if that's the course, or if I can even take it during the summer.

    Thanks.

    Do you know what courses satisfy the ethics requirement? I can't find that anywhere on the NOVA website. I think it's PHI2600 or (2604), but I'm not sure.

    I got it in email the day after the phone call. The snail mail version took about a week.

    Also, I've decided to decline my Nova acceptance to go to PBA instead. I hope this frees up a seat for someone else who really wants to go here. Good luck everyone.
