    Model is unknown until they make their decision and put in the orders, but based on recent history, it will probably be one of the Dell business models.

    Thank you!!! My stats weren't high at all. GPA 3.40, PCAT 60th percentile. Since he just responded to me and I interviewed on 2/7, I'm sure you'll hear soon! Good luck!!! :)

    Anyone know a good place to look for roommates for the Utah campus? I'd rather have a roommate who attends the school or one of the other schools nearby..

    They're multiple choice mostly. Some can be trickier than others but there's relatively few of the "two of the above" or "A and B, A and C..." types of questions. They are not bad if you prepare, and you should put in a few hours a day on average. I say on average because a lot of people, myself included, might not be as inspired to study hard until the 2-3 days before exams. I've found it tougher to get back on routine after holidays/breaks in the schedule for whatever reason, which is something I'd definitely advise students to be wary of.

    Agreed. P1 year isn't to bad. You will see a lot more of the NAPLEX type questions in P2 year though.

    A.
    B.
    C.
    D. Two of the above
    E. All of the above

    Or my new most hated question format...

    Which of the following is NOT true

    A.
    B.
    C.
    D.
    E. All are true

    It can get pretty crazy but it's doable. You basically just have to know your stuff really well.

    Hi Golden Bear,
    Do you guys get a spring break? I am trying to plan my wedding around that time but I am afraid that I will need that time to catch up on some studying. Advice please? Thanks.

    Whomever got into this school, be prepared to endure the worst experience of your academic lives lol ! This school is absolutely no joke. You will have to memorize so much information, it will blow your mind. 60% of the class will bomb the first exam. I heard they recently took away the extra 5% from you group test, that adds to your individual exam (so essentially you could make an 85% on the test with group points and still pass) But now, it's 90% on your own every exam, no group points. P1 isn't so bad, but P2 is horrible. I actually had a life in P1, P2 was nothing but studying. So happy I graduated. Good luck everyone and god bless.

    Sounds to me like you have something against the school. Yes its tough, no doubts there, but did you miss the part about it being an accelerated program? Its suppose to be hard. You should have known that going in. They aren't getting rid of the team point thing so I'm not sure where that came from.

    Happy April Fools Day, Ctooz.

    Team points still exist, and the bomb rate on the first test is not close to 60%. P2 is reputedly a lot harder than P1 tho, so that part's true.

    The 5% group point will still be in the assessment in the block systems. And more and more other 3-yr block programs adopted this approach including the group points.

    I am glad it's no easy work, since we are dong a PharmD degree. I want a quality PharmD so as to build my career quality and reputation. We don't want patients say: that pharmacist knows so little even spelt words wrong.

    We had a long four day weekend that they called a Spring Break (5 days if you passed the exam on the prior Friday) so if you can get married and honeymoon w/in those four days, then plan away. I, personally, would have wished for a longer one but I'll take what I can get. I'm also getting married later this year but had to change the date because the date we wanted cut into the last week of schooling in December. Booo.

    From what I understand: They have already contacted all of the people who they have accepted into their campuses and they have until about April 14 to accept. At that time, they will have a better idea of who else can be accepted and who will be contacted to be on the wait list.

    I may be wrong though...

    I think you are right! I'm trying to stay hopeful because from what I hear, a lot of people from the waitlist get accepted. Hopefully I become one of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't think he has this "waitlist" completed yet thought because all he told me was that he would have a better idea by april 16. I also have no heard of anyone being ranked on the waitlist yet, unless they are trying to get into the nevada campus and are already accepted into utah.

    4/16/2012 is the deadline for $1000 deposit for those accepted. I am sure some people will give up their spot so after that date the school will move onto wait list. You may get a call anytime for an offer then!

    No i'm just saying that's how many seats needs to be filled. I was wondering if they offered that many so far and see who accepts it then opens it up to waitlist.
    No clue

    Yeah, I didn't understand your post either. If you are saying that there are 112 remaining seats in Henderson, that's probably not accurate because I'm pretty sure more of them have been filled by now. If you are saying there are 112 total seats, that's also not accurate because it's more like 145.

    Utah probably has the capacity for about 145 as well if the classrooms are truly identical, but I don't the class has been filled to capacity as of last year.

    Golden Bear,
    So Utah has the capacity to seat 145 as well? Do you have any insights as to why they limit it to 112?

    Sorry was responding on my phone. I was wondering like, if they contacted the exact number of people as there are seats so far. Like if Nevada has 145 seats, they only contacted those 145 and gave them til mid april to decide and then based off that, they will start contacting those who are the waitlist? Or is it like they contacted 200+ and waiting til mid april to see if they accept or reject the offer then contact those on waitlist.

    I do not think they contact more than they have seats for.... So, no, they probably do not contact 200+ for Nevada if they only have 145 seats go Nevada...

    I think they contact 145 fe Nevada and 112 for Utah at most. if any of them decline, they move down the list.

    They are only limited by the number of chairs in the classroom. The Henderson campus classrooms are a little larger than the ones in South Jordan. They usually accept 145 students for Henderson and 112 for South Jordan. Since coming to South Jordan they have increased the number of students per class each year and they finally maxed out the classroom capacity in South Jordan this past year for the class of 2014 at 112 students. I'd imagine they are going to max out the seats every year from here on out. I wouldn't be surprised if they added additional seating somehow to accomodate more students, not because there is a need for more pharmacists, but the monetary reward it too great for them.

    Utah is up to 112 now? It is getting harder and harder not to put Roseman and diploma mill in the same sentence.

    Diastole, did you or any of your friends have a rotation with Kai or Krystal? If so, what were your thoughts on the experience?

    Btw, what is it looking like for you after graduation? And, how did the match turn out for you guys?

    Congrats on being so close to graduation! I remember how good it felt to wrap up rotations:) I imagine you feel the same.

    Its no different then any other school during this time. The University of Utah Increased the number of seats they take from 45 to 60 in 2010 again in 2011 and will prob again this year.
