    Hey guys:
    pharmcas just added this school to their list and emailed applicatnts yesterday. From what i gathered, they do not have ACPS accreditaion yet but are planning on enrolling the class of 2014. They donot say if their accreditation is on the way or anything in that regard, So let get out tongues wagging here.

    Precandidate status allows them to accept students into the program. The website says Pharmcas has acknowledge receipt of their application and i planning a site visit this spring in order to consider giving the precandidate status. If they accpets students and don't get the precandidate status, they will not open this fall. That my understanding of it. I may be wrong.

    i applied and interviewed, waiting to hear back now. The campus was very nice, it is a newly renovated building. I was very impressed with the faculty.

    I was invited to interview but they want me to take more courses this summer before starting the program. I have other interviews and depending how they turn out, i may have to cancel this one.

    It was pretty relaxed. All of the faculty were very nice and helpful. First, you will take a tour of the school. Then, they give you a 15 min break. Next, they split you up into two groups. One group will do the interview first, and the other group will do the essay and questionnaire first. I think we switched after an hour. Once all of this is done, the two groups rejoin and you have a Q&A session with the dean and the faculty. There were only 6 people interviewing the day I was there, so it was nice to have a more personal connection with the school.

    The interview questions were the typical, "Why pharmacy, why South College?" They also asked a couple of situational questions and about yourself as a person. You will interview with two faculty members at one time. At first I was nervous about this, but it wore off quickly because the faculty interviewing me were pretty relaxed.

    The essay that I had was a moral essay dealing with capitol punishment. It is a written essay, so they provide you with pencil and paper. It didn't have to be very long. One side of the paper if I recall correctly.

    The questionnaire is just a multiple choice (no wrong or right answer) type. It is situational questions and you answer what you think you would do. They told us it was an experimental thing they were doing so they could match you up with an advisor that fits your personality.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. :thumbup:

    After viewing this thread and seeing other people receive acceptance offers, i was shocked that i had not received an offer yet. I e-mailed the assistant dean and was told i was on the list to again be considered at a later time. I thought the interview went well so i was not expecting that. I hope to hear some better news in future e-mails. I really liked the town and would much rather complete my pharmacy education there than in-state.

    My interview date was on 3/3. I really enjoyed my interview there, I interviewed with another school the next day and it was boring compared to South's.

    Haha, that's great! I did apply to ETSU but they were one of my last options. They ended up not getting my PharmCas stuff by their deadline so it all worked out. But the guy that sat beside me in that conference room got accepted to ETSU. Where are you going to go?

    About the accreditation status They are going to get there final inspection in the end of June to receive pee candidate status I'm positive they won't have any trouble with getting accreditation I think only one or two schools have been denied accreditation and that's only because they didn't follow the rules and proceedures for accreditation

    I am also not concerned about them getting their accreditation because the Dean has been involved with a few pharmacy schools before this one so he knows what he is doing. He is also a highly respected man who will get the job done and do it right.

    There are lots of apartments in Knoxville, if anyone has any questions about specific ones I can try to help since I am from the area.

    I was also really nervous but after you get in there they make you feel relaxed and the interview part was actually fun. (I know you are thinking, an interview is fun?? But they do a great job of making you feel comfortable) No worries, you will do fine. :)

    Hi PharmDGirl,

    I was wondering if you know whether any of those apartments you mentioned have laundry machine and dryer in the individual rooms? Thanks!
