    Hi everyone,

    I am a P2 currently at Regis. If you get an interview, congrats and good luck on your up and coming interview date. A lot of people I have talked with seem worried about the interview process. The only advice i can give is to be yourself and be as honest as possible. If anyone has any questions, feel free to message me.

    Goodluck!

    I just got a call today telling me that I was accepted and that they'll email me further instructions. :)

    I'm just worried that the school is not fully accredited yet. Does anyone know what the chances are that the program will become fully accredited?

    Congrats! I hope I get a call too...

    What time did they call you?

    I'm pretty sure that the school has every intention on becoming fully accredited; otherwise, they wouldn't have undertaken the objective of opening the school.

    Thanks! They called me at 3:00pm central time and I interviewed on 03/16 so it was relatively quick.
    Yeah, your right. I should focus more on the tuition and completing the religion class requirement. Best of luck to you

    If you interviewed on 3/15 it should be this week, infact I was told that I'll receive the letter of acceptance tomorrow but I got the email today.

    Congrats, is that the only place you interviewed at and got accepted? I'm still debating if I should go there. I still have a school to hear from and another school to interview at.

    In addition to Regis, I also applied to Incarnate Word in San Antonio, which is the school right across the street from mine, and I got wait-listed. I definitely will be going to Regis because I'm ready for a change of scenery! :)

    Just be relaxed and honest. They give you 2 minutes to think by yourself about the question/situation and then you interview for 6 minutes. I would just say be prepared to tell them why you want to go to Regis. Most of my MMI's we didn't even spend the whole 6 minutes on the question, I just told them more about myself.

    Don't be nervous, I can say that out of the few interviews I've done, that one has been the most relaxing.

    I've been looking as well. According to the university website only Pomponio Village is available to graduate and doctorate students > http://www.regis.edu/regis.asp?sctn=sl&p1=rl&p2=rh&p3=Pomponio > but I'm pretty sure sign-up for that has ended.

    And then there's off campus housing listed > http://www.regis.edu/regis.asp?sctn=sl&p1=rl&p2=rh&p3=offcampus > which are fully furnished but are Co-ed by house with shared bathrooms, but I prefer my own bathroom.

    I interviewed on March 15 and got a call and email on the 28th! Feeling very fortunate and excited! Have no clue what I will do about living arrangements though... anyone else in the same boat?

    I have a feeling I was your replacement when you canceled your interview for the 15th. I was scheduled for the 30th, and they called a week before to let me know a spot opened up for the 15th, and they offered it to me. :) It was my first interview I have ever done, and I found out on the 28th I was accepted!! I already canceled my Creighton and Massachusetts interviews, as Regis was my #1. Just wanted to share...

    Yeah, I'm looking for apartments around the downtown area so I can be close to all of the culture as much as I can. It is about a 15-20 minute drive but well worth the investment, I feel. Congrats on your acceptance and see you in the fall!

    Just got the call approx. an hour ago, AND...I'm IN! Though I liked Chicago more, I liked Regis as a school better. BOOM.

    Congratulations guys! Regis University was such a nice campus and the interview process was just really great. I almost wouldn't mind getting rejected there because it would be so hard for me to chose where to go. :p

    So I've been looking into housing a little bit more and found a student housing place that's about 15 minutes drive from Regis. Everything is furnished and included but the place requires a meal plan. It's similar to campus dorms. Here's the link:
    http://www.regencystudenthousing.com/
    I'm not sure about anything yet but I'm willing to room with someone if anyone is looking. It doesn't have to be the place mentioned above.

    Edit: I've also found a website with multiple apartments. http://www.carmelapartments.com/denver-student-housing

    I agree. I regret not applying earlier. I volunteered and was able to get a job as a pharmacy tech and a tutor. I think this is the only reason I got 4 interviews (rejected by 4). My math/sci gpa was like 2.8 and overall was like 3.0 (including retakes and nonpassing grades). Do what you can. Good luck!

    Hi everyone! I interviewed 3/30 and received acceptance like ~7 days later. Congratulations to the class of 2016! I really loved Regis University, but I am accepting an offer to PCOM :D in Georgia. Hopefully this frees a spot for someone on SDN :)

    Does anyone know when Certiphi will contact you to schedule the drug screening? I have already completed the background check a couple weeks ago and I haven't heard anything back about the drug screening. I ask because I will be out the country for most of the summer, and am trying to take care of all the necessary requirements for the pharmacy program before I leave.

    Please let me know as soon as possible! Thanks so much guys!

    Hi! I haven't heard anything about the drug screening yet either. Maybe ask Justin Rowe, he is very helpful! Are you starting at Regis in the fall??!!
