    I am planning to apply here. I live in South Carolina and PC is a respected school in SC. They are not yet accredited but I'm assuming that they will be before graduation. I'm not exactly sure how that works. The Dean of the Pharmacy program is very well respected to, from what I've heard.

    I have applied! We will have to wait til June to make sure they get pre-candidate status. But all looks good!

    They don't start interviewing for awhile... not until January. Now we just have to wait.

    I was told that PC had their pre-candidate visit and it went well. I was also told they would find out in January. I see others are applying so I may join that club. I like the South anyway much warmer. Anyone else interested go to www.presby.edu and check it out.

    Visited the open house this past weekend. Beautiful campus and very nice small town atmosphere. I eraned a lot about the program. They have a solid faculty with much experience. The Dean has started several schools before and the program is very student oriented. I liked what they have to offer and there were other potential applicants that were there. About 25-30 as a matter of fact. Many of us talked and it will be one of our top choices. They are not hung up on the PCAT but grades and the overall make-up of the student is important to them. I have heard other schools tell me that but they seem to mean it!

    The school sounds a lot like SUCOP. If you want to go to school in a larger town check it out.

    hi, i interviewed there. it was a really nice campus in a small town. the staff is great and make you feel at ease. the interview process was not stressful at all. you will interview with a couple of faculty members, one at a time. the test is pretty much all common sense questions. The questions they asked me were all about my pharmacy work experience. no ethics questions or anything like that. basics, why pharmacy...why presbyterian college...etc. although it is a new school they are going to have an awesome program. i decided to go to my home state school , fully accredited, etc for $$ reasons. this school is pretty expensive but will be fully accredited eventually with no problem i think. im pretty sure they are trying to find the highest quality candidates for their first class. good luck!

    osoOri3nt41 I see you are attending PC this fall. Where are you from?
  16. I thought the interview was very laid back and allowed you room to "distinguish" yourself so-to-speak.

    Oddly enough, unlike the interview experience from a member's previous post, I got a lot of ethical/situational based questions..."what would you do if you saw a nurse using the same size blood pressure cuff on everyone" (I thought this one was really out of left field but still interesting). Anyway, just be yourself and let them get a good sense of what you can bring to their program. Remember, they are new and will try to look for characteristics in their first class that will lay a solid foundation so make sure to think about your answers with that in mind.

    I really liked the school and the whole interview process was one of the reasons I'm going there this Fall, so I wish you luck.

    I liked the school as well so I'm going to go here over some of my other choices even though it is a new school. I had a really good connection with the faculty and staff.

    I also got into PC.. After going to the interview and campus tour I was really impressed with the school, faculty and program. They genuinly seemed intrested in what u had to say and all were odviously excited to be opening the school in 2010. Unlike other interviews where I felt that I could have been talking to the wall for all they cared. Ive chosen PC and am really excited:soexcited: to be the inaugural class 2014

    I found out like less than a week after my interview, by phone and mail. My interview was in February. I agree rxgirl2014, they did seem interested, I feel like I was actually interviewing them..haha. Only downside is It's an expensive school, but I knew that before the interview..overall I feel It will be just as good as most established schools. Plus every established school was new at some point!..haha

    I actually left them a thank you card stating that I enjoyed their interview process and and thought they would be a great candidate for my choices and would like to accept their program, so it was more like I choose them, or "accepted" them.

    Are you a current student at Presbyterian or do you work there? I have applied and my application is complete but I haven't heard anything yet. :)
  35. Are you really having fun in Clinton, SC?

    I thought about applying to Presby (I'm from SC), but there is no way in he// I would want to live in Clinton, thus nixing the app.

    Great place to go to school. Wonderful facilities, faculty really care and it may be a small town but our class has really become close and that makes it a lot of fun.

    You need to check it out it is better than most of the other new schools I had seen and better than some of the established schools in this area!

    Clinton is a small town, but it really allows you to focus on school. I am a current student, and I have never seen such a committed staff. They are willing to go out of their way for each and every student. I am also very impressed with the program, the staff, and the opportunities available to students and look forward to the rest of my career at PCSP.

    We have a new site up and running now. The site is pharmacy.presby.edu. This new site offers links for current and prospective students. It also offers insight from professors, videos of students and the facility, and current information needed for admissions. Hope this is useful to you and many others!

    Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy admits students based on academic criteria, as well as, the student’s ability to communicate, the student’s involvement in volunteer work, the student’s exploration of pharmacy as a profession, the student’s recommendation letters, and finally the student’s on site interview. Academically, the student is required to have a minimum pre-pharmacy GPA of 2.75 and a cumulative GPA of a 2.5 when other classes are added into the GPA. The PCAT is another academic requirement needed to be considered for admission at PCSP. At this time, there is no minimum score requirement for the PCAT, however, it is important to understand that each year students will be evaluated based on other students applying during that year, therefore, each year the average PCAT will change. The PCSP admissions staff truly looks for an individual that has a history of service to their community. At PCSP, there is a huge initiative to have every student involved in community service. The motto of Presbyterian College is “while we live, we serve”. In every aspect of the pharmacy school, this too is upheld. The admissions staff also looks for someone who has explored the profession of pharmacy. This can range from working in a pharmacy to interning, shadowing, or simply interviewing a pharmacist. This shows initiative on behalf of the student, to understand what pharmacy is all about. Finally, the admissions staff will review letters of recommendation, resumes, and essays submitted with the application for admittance to PCSP. If the student is selected for an interview, the student is asked to visit campus for an onsite interview. During this time, students will be able to interact with faculty and tour the facilities. If you are interested in applying to PCSP, please feel free to fill out an application at http://www.pharmacy.presby.edu or simply consult the website for further questions regarding the program. *Remember to always note deadlines before submitting applications. Applications for fall 2012 will be available in the summer months ahead.

    Please keep in mind that distributing and using interview questions is a violation of conduct at Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy.

If the Admissions committee at PCSP is to become aware of this, the application will be thrown out. We want everyone to have equal opportunities when it comes to the interview. Thank you!
