does anyone know how long it takes for them to send you the supplementary application after they receive your pharmcas application?
My pharmcas application was sent to them 10/30 and I haven't gotten it yet. I just got a general email saying they had gotten my pharmcas application.
congrats!! woohoo! yeah im still waiting for Colorado. if worse comes to worse, i'll put in a deposit for MWU and just wait until I hear back from Colorado. I have an interview scheduled for Shenandoah next week, but given that I got an acceptance to MWU, i'll be canceling my interview. are you still considering NDM?
what schools are you deciding between? i just got accepted to st john fisher in new york as well..never in a million years did i think i'd even get accepted to one school! i loved baltimore when i went to the interview, but i didn't have to opportunity to see the area..so don't know if would love living there. is anyone from the baltimore area that would like to shed some positive or negative light on it?
I was accepted here and Shenandoah. I didnt really get to see much of Baltimore but from the way the faculty and students were talking about it it seemed like a great lively place with lots of opportunities. The only thing i would say i dont like about the school is that its not very well established yet but its on the right path!
Notre Dame has a very seasoned faculty and this is not the first program started with Dr. Lin. She stated that she has been on the acreditation end as well. She said there are thirty standards they are judged by and Notre Dame is well on track in all thirty.
I was also accepted at Notre Dame on Dec. 1 and I am thrilled about it. This is a program that will provide a great atmosphere, great support and uphold high standards.
can someone tell me about baltimore please? is a good place to live. I'm from buffalo New York and honestly im nervous to move to a big city. Are there fun things to do there, good nightlife, shops, good people? i would really appreciate any thoughts. I have to make my decision by next week so please help!!
I just mailed out my decline form today =\ I really wish this school the best. It has great potential to become a great pharmacy school in the future. I commend the faculty I met during my interview for their graciousness and hospitality. I wish every 2016 NDM applicants the best!
First of all, congratulations to those you finished their interviews and got acceptances! I will be applying to Notre Dame this winter break since I seriously did not have time during the semester.
I have some quick questions regarding this school. Please help if you can and Happy Holidays!
1.) How are the supplemental? Are there more than one essay questions?
2.)For those you went on campus, Do you know if we need a car to get around?
3.) How much is tuition per semester?
Thank you so much!
Currently I'm a P2 at the school, so i'll try to answer some of your questions.
1. The supplemental is like other supplementals from other schools. If I remember correctly, there is a question about professionalism, but it could have changes since i applied.
2. Having a car is really helpful for school. especially if you live offcampus. Girls are able to dorm at this school, but the commons foods isn't really the best to say the least. You do need a car starting 2nd year though for IPPE rotations.
3.tuition is slightly more that 30k/yr
4. There are a lot of places to live around school. It just depends on your preferences. However, i don't think a lot of people live toward downtown Baltimore because of price and size. They do usually start a FB group soon (Feb or March) and they post some different options around the area such as Belvedere Towers, Twin Ridge, Carlyle, etc. It also is a place to find roommates if you wanted as well.
Feel free to ask any other questions
First of all, THANK YOU so much for the quick response. Merry Christmas !
I have some follow up questions.
1.) If tuition is >30,000/year, does that also apply to out of state students?
2.) I will probably wont be able to buy a car soon, so I was wondering is it possible to get around during my first year without a car? Is AC/bus transit accessible?
3.)Can you inform me know about your experiences thus far as a student? What you like about the program thus far? What you dont like?
I really value anyone feedback. I am very interested in the school, but I dont know anyone there. Thank you for your help as I really really appreciate it.
1. It is a private school, so it cost the same whether you are in-state or out of state.
2. There is public transportation but it isn't as reliable as you would think since the school is not directly inside downtown. It's totally doable but inconvenient.
3. Personally I like it here a lot. This school teaches and prepares you thoroughly with its curriculum and the faculty is extremely nice and approachable for the most part. Sure, there is a lot of work given at this school but there is always going to be people complaining wherever you go. What I don't like at this school is the mandatory attendance.
Hope this helps!
Congratulations on your interview invite! as far as the interview, be mindful that it is open file, meaning that your interviewers have seen your application (PCAT, GPA, letters of rec, personal statement) so make sure you KNOW the information you provided them. I had a great experience with the faculty during the interview itself. Honestly, out of all the 3 interviews I went to, my interview here at NDM was the most comfortable for me. The interview seemed more like a personal conversation, rather than a formal interview. But you still have to prepare for whatever questions they may ask you. The only downside with the interview day is how the day dragged. We had many short "down times" between each section of the interview day. Other than that, the experience was relaxed and very informative. Oh, and no essays! good luck!
the campus is located in a nice area of Baltimore. I was really impressed with the nice houses around campus. The campus itself is very nice. Nice bricked buildings, and so many grassy areas. I didn't get to walk around campus though, because I had a flight to catch right after the interview. The only building I was able to see and get a tour of, was Bunting Hall, which is the pharmacy school building. It's a newly built building that the SOP just moved into last fall, so all of their equipments, classrooms, laboratories are new. The faculty and students were very friendly and nice. During my trips to the restroom, at least a couple of faculty or student would stop me to wish me good luck on my interview (i think the suit gives it away). Good luck on your upcoming interview!
