    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    If you were missing a transcript they should have contacted you about that. If they're missing anything they should contact you within the first week of receiving it supposedly.

    They didn't state anything to that effect in the email. It said they are now doing the application reviewing process. I sent my application in with one of my two transcripts. On the application I checked yes I have taken the PCAT. The email didn't even say they don't have my PCAT score.

    Did they tell you they didn't have your pcat score?

    Edit- Email says if anything is missing they will strive to contact before the first week of March. Should I just contact there administrative offices?

    4 days before my invite. AND I was told by email (bless that sweet lady in the office, she's right on top of things) right after receiving my application that one of my college transcripts wasn't there yet so I had to re-request that and they probably only got it the day before they emailed me. I was pretty surprised to get an invite this quickly... my gpa's not the greatest but I'm really determined and focused so maybe that prompted the invite.

    Hi, I am currently re-applying and would like some feedback from anyone who has reapplied and got accepted. Last year, when I applied, I received an interview; however, was placed on the waitlist and never got in. I am trying to reapply again this year but was wondering if I should keep all of my essay responses or should I change it up? Roseman is my first choice and I need another shot at the interview. Any help you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated!!

    Well if you got an interview the first time then I would assume your essay responses were fine. I think there's an additional essay question for applicants reapplying though.

    I happen to fit this description. I applied to USN two years ago and got waitlisted but not accepted, then I applied last year and got in. I think I kept my answers similar but adjusted as needed for circumstances that changed, like additional pharmacy experience. And as Nanikure said, there is that additional "what have you done?" question for re-applicants that you'll have to address. In any case, I got a similar interview date between the two years, and I think the most important change was that I had a better interview the second time around.

    Last year, I attended the Nov. interview and got accepted the following April. It varies from person to person, but the soonest is within a week or so.

    I've heard as little as a couple days afterward, and as much as... well, as late as you can get really.

    From what I hear your chances just really depend on how well your interview goes- I'll be there too on Nov. 7th, but I have no idea how many of us will be there. It's a plus to interview early, that's for sure! Is this the only school you're applying to?

    They just e-mailed me saying I had been chosen for an interview and asked which two dates I would consider my top two choices.

    They will still offer you an interview even if they haven't reveived your PCAT score. For those of you who took the September PCAT, they won't have your scores yet. That just means everything else was impressive enough to land you an interview. They won't offer you admission until they do get your PCAT score though.

    Congrats to those who have upcoming interviews. Relax and be yourself and you'll do fine. Good luck to all!

    I thought they required your PCAT score considering that they use it for the interview selection score. I mean I had no PCAT score before the September test and then 3-4 days later after I received my score I got an invite so I just assumed.

    You got your results in 4 days? When I took mine 2 years ago it took 6 weeks to your results. Things have changed I guess. You're probably right then. The school must get your results more quickly then they did back when I was applying.

    They PCAT counts towards your overall admission score, not just to get the interview. A good score definitely helps though. I interviewed someone last year who had a 98 PCAT and did very well during the actual interview but he didn't get accepted and I'm still trying to figure out why.

    It took 5-6 weeks to get my score from the date I took the PCAT. Once my official scores were up though and sent out to schools I received the invite email. I don't know though maybe my application was just processed a bit later since I had it in October 1st.

    With the first interview approaching, here are some seemingly random and disparate suggestions.

    - Pharmacy is a small world. You will be meeting future colleagues during the interview and you never know how closely you might work with them some day, even if you don't end up going to Roseman. So with that in mind, really try to introduce yourselves to your (student) interviewers and tour guides.
    - Take pictures (perhaps stealthily if possible). If you make it in, you might randomly chat with people and realize that they interviewed on the same day as you, but you won't remember each other at all. At least you might as well get photo evidence.
    - You can prepare all you want and read your notes while you wait for your scheduled interview, but try your best to be relaxed and in a good state of mind by any means necessary. Plan ahead and use that intrapersonal intelligence.
    - Lab coat size is pretty much same as shirt size. Ignore the fancy numbers.
    - Don't distrust directions given by Google maps or GPS devices/apps. Yeah, I messed up last year and showed up slightly late, I admit it...

    I don't recall what his GPA was but it was fairly decent. At least a 3.7 though. I do remember that he had retaken the PCAT to get the score of 98 so that may have been a factor in it. Maybe the other half of the interview team (a faculty member) didn't think he did so good. It's really hard to say why he didn't get in.

    This is NOT typical. I know a few people in the P1 class with a 99 composite score on the PCAT. I got a 76 and also got into other schools. I chose Roseman because of the block schedule.

    I'm headed down and possibly might be looking for someone to ride with me so I'm not driving through blizzards along... anyone else headed down? I'm leaving from Snow College area and plan to maybe go down early if I can. Weather isn't supposed to be great and it's looking like my family won't be able to make it so I just thought I'd check here to see who else is going.

    Your GPA does suck, but at least your composite is not 11% like someone's (like jew unit).
