    The school was nice (but small). The current students and staff were nice. The town is small compared to the city but nothing I can't manage. Kind of like the small town feel... Haven't heard any news yet, but I was interviewed on 3/24. The school is more appealing now because it now can fund students with federal loans.

    So I interviewed on 3/24, and received a letter from them today. I got put on the freakin hold list! Well a student I met during the interview day said that she was on the hold list and was finally accepted into the school over the summer. So that gives me hope. Would it be rude or inappropriate to call or email the admissions office to see what number I am on the hold list or what my chances are for admission?

    I don't think it's rude at all to ask what position you're at on the wait list. I email/call westernU to get an update of my status of my application almost bi-weekly; still waiting on Western to get back to me. I also interviewed on 3/24th, but receive no letters yet... hopefully good news come soon, tired of this waiting game. GL to you though!

    Congrats! I also interviewed the same day and wondered where you're from? I'm trying to estimate when my letter will come to Oregon. Was your acceptance letter in a package or an envelope?

    The interview section on SDN is spot on. You'll be interviewed by two students first, then by two faculty. Probably takes 15 minutes for the students and 30 or so for the faculty.

    Hi, I interviewed this last Saturday, 4-14-12. Not sure if you've gone on your interview yet, but I figured I could answer your questions anyways haha.

    1. Compared to the other interviews I've been on, this one was pretty straight forward. No tricky questions, just a lot regarding past experiences and the common question, why pharmacy/why Appalachian.
    2. Orientation started at 7:45am and I was completely done with everything around 12:15pm. I was put in the last interview slot from 12-12:30pm, but I ended up being called in earlier.
    3. There were about 25 people there for the interview on 4/14/12.

    I may be wrong, but this is just what I understand to be the difference between the lists. I was sent a letter about a week after I interviewed saying I was currently on the 'hold' list. They said that the hold list consisted of applicants who the admissions board had yet to make a final decision about. I received another letter today that said I was now on the alternative list. From what I gather, it seems that people on the alternate list are offered accepted ONLY if a seat becomes available on the campus. I'm guessing that they have already given out all acceptance letters/filled the majority of the seats at this point, and only if people end up backing out will they start to pull from the alternate list.

    Is anyone still looking for a roommate for the fall? After much deliberation, I've decided to attend ACP and looking at apartment prices, it seems to be a lot cheaper to get a roommate. I'd prefer a female roommate who is easy to get along with.

    pm me if you are interested as I am apartment hunting all month!

    I also received this on 6/8. I think they are probably just trying to see how many people are still interested in attending or are already attending other schools. Probably trying to narrow down the alternate list.

    I also received an email on 6/8 as well asking if I'm still interested

    I'm not sure if I should keep my hopes up since I haven't heard anyone being pulled from the alternative list yet:( Or the list could be moving who knows

    Lol yeah I definitely didn't get my hopes up either, I have not heard of any movement at all from the alternate list. I think they were truly just trying to narrow it down and see who was still interested.
