    Two faculty? Wow, I always thought the adcom consisted of ever faculty/staff member who interviewed candidates.

    Hey Ehm1! Thanks, I actually wish I can start pharmacy school right now! I am dying to see what the courses are like. They all sound so interesting! Medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics... ahh! Actually what I look forward to most is the IPPE's and becoming a pharmacist intern. :D

    Oh man...no other other schools to go or was this your first choice?

    From what I read in this thread, I get the feeling that you're not really placed in a specific dated pool, but rather reevaluated when the time comes to fill newly opened spots.

    Don't worry you guys... the tuition is extremely expensive so I am sure seats will open up. My expected payment from private loan is 99,000 dollars after one year.

    Sigh.

    Yes, the deterred method for Sallie Mae for mine was around that amount as well. I haven't accepted it yet, since I have not been accepted.

    How did you know that the AdCom reviewed the wait list? Is the AdCom going to send the waitlisters an email informing if we're on the high waitlist or just the wait list? If I remembered correctly, the school website said that is done late June.

    Waitlist is not equivalent to rejection. As posted on this forum, a couple people was pulled off the waitlist on February.

    When was your interview? When did Gail say this? When I had my interview back in January, she said 2-4 weeks after the interview day, we would be notified if we were accepted, waitlisted, or denied, so it's possible to be denied.

    I was shocked but unfortunately, there is no better alternative at this point. I also did not know we had to pay out of pocket an additional 5,000 dollars fee by June 18th as a seat commitment fee. I am very thankful my parents can aid me in this, I think the loan only covers tuition so this has to be paid by us.

    If anyone knows any more information on this, please let me know.

    Wish you all the best.

    errrr....this school does deny applicants!! Me and another applicant interviewed at the same time we were in the same group and we decided to k.i.t.......she informed me that they denied her in february! i wont say who she is but i will say we interviewed in September. i am glad however that she got accepted into western university! oh and btw....twentytweleve2......the tuition is being broken down for us before school starts....they wanted $1500, then $5000, then 14,000=~$25,000 that is our tuition for the 1st semester *sheesh* a lot of $$$

    its weird because every interview session all of us applicants are being told something different.....we were the first to be interviewed and they told us that we ( all 75 of us) will more that likely get accepted before waitlisted leaving ~28 seats but i guess a story comes with every interview : /
    Well goodluck to all!

    I apologize for being unclear in my post, Rphbound. What I meant was that the loan would not go into effect until August, and that we are required to make a 5,000 deposit by June 18th, so this money has to come from our pockets rather than the loan.

    Gosh no later than June 18? I guess the school wants to double check if the accepted people are still interested so that the AdCom can begin pulling people off the wait list.

    Wait? Where are you guys hearing all of this? $5000 by June and tuition by July? I got accepted and I haven't heard any of this. I mean I paid the $1500 to reserve my seat, But I have not heard any of the other stuff? Was there another email? All I know was to get my immunizations done and send transcripts. And last time I heard we have to be there like mid August for orientation not the beginning. Why are people hearing different things?

    people arent hearing different things it was sent via email to us. in addition to getting your immunizations and background check done, you should have recieved an email packaged with pdf's for enrollment agreement (that where you will find your tuition fee schedule), ,school performance fact sheet,general catalog, 14 day enrollment, and acceptance letter enrollment. then you should have also been sent school schedule and you actually have to be there august 6-15 for registration if you register during orientation it will be considered late registration. orientation 13-17, class starts 20th. in the pdf for enrollment shows your tuition fee schedule and when you have to pay your $5000!!! you dont want to miss any important deadlines so double check

    On that day, one of the speakers said it would take 2~4 weeks for a response. Maybe they're taking a more serious look at your application? Also, possibly for the others and me, it was an easier choice to put us on the waitlist? Who knows...

    OT: From what I gather, Admin at this school is a funny one. Just on the waitlist alone, no ranks, no indications...nothing; not even a singular straight story from them. On top of that, I only had five hours to respond to their interview invite on 4/13 via e-mail. Yeah...FIVE FLIPPIN' HOURS! If my e-mails were not linked up to my smartphone, I would have missed this invite for sure.

    Thank you for the reply!
    BTW, did you apply to any other schools? I got accepted to Touro but
    really want to go to Northstate for convenience. I already paid the deposit
    for Touro tho, hoping to hear back soon.

    Your interview invite was pretty late. They probably had some candidates decline their interview invites, and so they had to find new interview candidates quickly. Which explains the 5 hours notice.

    Congrats! ^^ Btw, from the people who posted their results. I noticed a solid pattern; those who got accepted to Touro were w/l at Northstate and vice versa. I find that strange haha.

    I also noticed the Touro/northstate w/l & acceptance pattern the other day.

    For those who have been accepted to northstate and are
    for sure attending, when does everyone plan on moving to the area?

    Your email actually mentioned you being high waitlisted? I interviewed 4/6 and my email didn't say anything about high or low waitlist. I guess I should just assume mine is low then .. =\

    Are we suppose to get started on all the stuff it listed on there, even tho we are on the wait list? Anyone have any advice?

    for the most part make sure all of your immunizations are up to date, apply for the loans, and be prepared to send your transcripts out:thumbup:

    Hmm. I really think they are now categorizing waitlisters into high and "normal" so I think you will get an updated email sometimes soon. Cross your fingers!!

    Yeah, I applied to a handful of schools, but mostly got rejected, especially by Touro CA. Congratulations on your acceptance though!

    Same here, and I was in the 4/20 interview! Here's the first few paragraphs of my notification from this school:

    They're just trying to give tips for the future if things don't go as planned! Don't give up, you're on the waitlist and that's SO much better than getting rejected. And Gail says they usually go deep within the waitlist so keep your hopes up!

    It said it in the subject and the introduction- something to the effect of "congrats on your selection as high wait list candidate....blah blah blah"

    Did anymore 4/20 interviewees hear back yet?

    I'm not sure how this waitlist thing goes, so I might just wait? I think I am up to date with shots anyways so I am not worried about getting all those things done. Yeah I have a final as well next week, good luck!
