    I submitted my apps here a while ago but I've only received the email saying they've received my LOR, pharmCAS, and supplemental application. No interview invites so far. Has anyone else gotten anything?

    I submitted all the forms necessary and am now waiting for them to be processed. I think people will start hearing about interviews in October since interviews begin in November or at least that is what I remember reading on last years thread.

    Yea that's what I heard too. Is Roseman a school?

    Are you pre-pharmacy or a current student? Do you know any details on how well the class prepares you to take each test? 90% pass/fail cut off seems too high on the expectations.

    I'm pre-pharmacy, but I've been researching both Pacific and Roseman since they're my top choices. Since they both work with a block system I figure they both work the same way. I read somewhere on the website for Pacific that 90% was their cut off. I don't know if anything else would be similar to what Roseman does though.

    Oh I see.

    Do you know any current students who can share their experiences with you in their classes? I have no had the opportunity to contact their admissions office to request a brief overview of their curriculum, perhaps other members here can share some of that information.

    Those two schools are my top choices as well. I've heard the 90 % cut off is not too difficult to reach as long as you stay up with the material

    I figured if you are pursuing a professional degree, you would be studying everyday and for extended amount of time anyways.

    I hope I get an interview, this is definitely a school on the top of my list.

    Oh I applied to quite a bit because I want to maximize the chance of me getting in somewhere. But by the look of it now....looking bleak.

    I applied to USC, UOP, Western, Touro, Northstate, Midwestern, LECOMs, Pacific Oregon, MCPHS, Albany, Auburn, LIU, Utah.

    Yea I graduated and worked for almost couple years. I prefer the 3 year programs so I dont feel like I wasted too much time.

    I hope you guys get interviews! Im sure it'll be good news for both of you.
